Turkey-Russia growing tension: Turkish forces install new military post in Kafr Amim encircling Saraqeb from three sides

Activists informed the Syrian Observatory that the Turkish forces brought logistical and military supplies including tanks, armored vehicles and nearly 20 soldiers into the entrance of Kafr Amim village, east of Saraqeb town. The Turkish forces are installing a new military post at Kafr Amim junction within the so-called Abu Al-Duhur – Saraqeb Highway.

Accordingly, the Turkish forces surrounded Saraqeb town from the northern, southern and eastern sides by installing a military post in each side. This action shows a clear challenge against the Russians.

SOHR sources reported yesterday that Turkish forces set up a new military post at the pharmaceutical factory north of Saraqeb town, after the first post had installed in the area of Al Sawami’e south of Saraqeb.

It is worth mentioning that these two points are located on the Damascus-Aleppo international highway aka M5. It seems that the Turks are defying the Russians and there are disagreements between the two sides over certain points regarding their agreement on the international highway.
