Turkish-Russian joint patrols | Russian and Turkish forces tour M4 to outskirts of Ariha
SOHR sources have confirmed that the Russian and Turkish forces have conducted a new joint patrol on Latakia-Aleppo international highway (M4).
The patrol set off from Tarnabeh village to the outskirts of Ariha city. This is the second time for the Russian-Turkish joint patrols to tour such long distance since the recent ceasefire came into effect.
This patrol is also the ninth joint patrol between the Russian and Turkish forces on the M4 highway.
On May 3, Observatory sources reported that Turkish forces were deployed along Aleppo-Latakia international highway (M4) which passes through Idlib countryside.
The Turkish troops reconnoitered all buildings around the highway to the flank of Ariha in southern Idlib, as a part of preparations for running Turkish-Russian joint patrols.
