Turkish-backed militant groups are intentionally establishing positions near Turkish observation posts in the Idlib de-escalation zone and use these positions to shell the Syrian Army, Russina outlet RusVesna reported citing an obtained drone image.
The provided image shows a Turkish observation post near the village of Alsurman in the province of Idlib. A military camp of Turkish-backed armed groups is established northeast of the Turkish position. The report argues that militants believe that there will be no retaliatory strikes on their positions because they are located close to those of Turkish troops.
However, during the active phase of the Syrian Army operation to liberate Khan Shaykhun, militant positions near Turkish observation posts were repeatedly shelled. So, if the large-scale hostilities in the area are resumed, a few observation posts will be not enough to resuce the terrorists.
