“De-escalation zone” | Russian and Turkish forces establish military posts near Saraqeb

Syrian Observatory activists have confirmed that Turkish forces established a military post, yesterday, at the western entrance of Saraqeb, near the road to Idlib and at nearly 50 metres away from regime positions in the area. According to SOHR sources, Turkish forces had sent the factions away of this position.

 

Meanwhile, Russian forces established a military post opposite the Turkish one, after sending regime forces away of the area, so that no skirmishes could be occurred between regime forces and opposition factions.

 

On Saturday, rReliable sources informed SOHR that Turkish forces established a new military post near Afes village in the north of Saraqeb city, which is under the control of regime forces and loyal non-Syrian militias in eastern Idlib, after reconnaissance tours in the area.

 

This development coincided with intensive movements by Iranian-backed militias and Hezbollah in Saraqeb, as they brought in heavy weapons to the area.
