Turkish military sets up 9th observation post in Syria (MAP + VIDEO )
A Turkish military convoy entered, today, the de-escalation zone in north Hama countryside in order to set up observation points, pro-rebel sources reported.
The same sources published photos of about 50 Turkish military vehicles crossing the borders toward Morek city. The convoy was escorted with militants from the Ahrar al-Sham terror group.
For the first time since Turkey’s ground involvement in the Syrian crisis, three observation points have been set in Morek, Latmin and Hanaya of Hama countryside. This comes as per the Turkish-Russian-Iranian agreement in Astana talks.
Reconnaissance units of the Turkish military had previously entered the area prior to the establishment of the three new points.
Morek is the ninth observation point for the Turkish military after setting up one point in Anadan in Aleppo northern countryside, three in the western countryside and one in the southern countryside of the Northern Province, two points in al-Tukan Hilltop and outside Maarat al-Numan in east Idlib.
This comes two days after presidents of Turkey, Iran and Russia discussed the Syrian crisis in Ankara
