Turkey army kills two people protesting joint patrols in Idlib

The Turkish army fired on a crowd protesting the patrol on the M4 highway in Idlib. Two people died.

According to the information obtained, the Turkish army tried to remove the roadblocks set up on the road in the Neyrab region to protest the joint patrol on the M4 highway.

The Turkish army attacked the activists, who tried to prevent the removal of the barricades, with tear gas bombs. Activists responded with stones.

Two people died as a result of the Turkish soldiers attacks.

The Syrian Human Rights Observatory (SOHR) confirmed that two people whose identity could not be established had died as a result of the fire opened by the Turkish soldier.

Moscow Agreement

After the clashes between the Turkish army and the Syrian army in Idlib in February, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan went to Moscow and asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to agree a truce.

The following resolutions were signed in the ceasefire signed on 5 March:

1- Stop all military activities in Idlib starting from March 6.

2- Opening a security corridor 6 kilometers north and 6 kilometers south of the Aleppo-Latakia highway (M4)

3- Russian-Turkish patrols to begin on 15 March along the security corridor opened.

Tension grows as patrolling began

In recent days, however, al-Nusra, Tehrir El Damascus (HTŞ) and many groups closed the road and opposed the patrol.

Upon the tension experienced in the past days, the Turkish state sent its police force to the region. The HTŞ had deployed its armed members against the Turkish police.
