Turkey’s withdrawals | Forces start withdrawing from Marhatat post on Aleppo-Damascus international road
Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that Turkish forces began, this morning, withdrawing from the “Marhatat” post on the Aleppo-Damascus international road south of Idlib, after dismantling their equipment since yesterday, where Turkish vehicles were seen gradually leaving the post this morning.
Yesterday, reliable sources informed SOHR that Turkish forces started dismantling their military post in “Maar Hattat” area on Damascus-Aleppo international highway (M4) in southern Idlib, in preparation to withdraw from the post. This development coincides with the ongoing and similar preparations by the Turkish forces for withdrawing from their military post in “Shir Maghar” in Jabal Shashaboo in the north-western countryside of Hama. The recent withdrawals come as a part of Russian-Turkish agreements in the “de-escalation zone”.
On November 2, SOHR sources reported that Turkish forces continued their withdrawal from Sher Maghar post in Jabal Shahshabo, north-west of Hama province, to the military post in the village of Qoqfin in the southern countryside of Idlib.
Observatory activists reported complete evacuation of the ninth Turkish observation post in Murek, while the Syrian regime’s flag was raised at the post. This development came 10 days after Turkish forces began dismantling the post.
