To monitor Damascus-Aleppo highway | Turkish forces establish new military checkpoint in Idlib

Idlib province: SOHR activists have reported that Turkish forces have established a new military checkpoint in Majladya village at the base of Al-Arba’in Mountain in Idlib countryside.

According to reliable SOHR sources, Turkish forces have reinforced the new checkpoint with heavy vehicles, tanks and thermal missiles.

It is worth noting that the location of the checkpoint is strategic as it overviews that m5 National Highway between Damascus and Aleppo from Saraqib city all the way to Ma’arat Al-Na’man city 25 kilometers southern of Idlib, as well as it overviews most areas in eastern Idlib countryside.

On June 16, SOHR activists monitored the entrance of a Turkish military convoy through Bab Al-Salama crossing and into areas held by Turkish forces and their proxies in Aleppo countryside.
The convoy comprised trucks carrying tanks, armoured vehicles and personnel carriers.
