New Turkish Observation Post Established In Syria’s Al-Zawiya Mount

Support SouthFront

On December 2, the Turkish Armed Forces established yet another post in the al-Zawiya Mount in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The new post was established in an advanced position south of the town of al-Bara, along the frontline with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Last month, the Turkish military established two similar posts in the al-Zawiya Mount in southern Idlib. The mountains region is located south of the M4 highway, which links the port city of Lattakia with Aleppo city.

A recent report by Enab Baladi revealed that Turkish forces are planning to conduct patrols in the al-Zawiya Mount. The SAA was reportedly eyeing the region.

The military buildup in the al-Zawiya Mount coincided with a Turkish withdrawal from four posts besieged by the SAA in northern Hama, southern Idlib and western Aleppo.

According to a report by the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Turkey is not planning to withdraw its troops from any other post besieged by the SAA as for now due to disagreements with Russia.

Turkey is yet to honor its commitments under the March 5 agreement with Russia. This may eventually lead to a new military escalation in Greater Idlib, where Turkish forces maintain more than 60 posts.

Fake source again.

Jens, you are simply stupid … the story is true, regardless you like it or not …

johnny rotten

South: isisrahell + USA + various terrorists
East: Usa with 100 other vassals + Kurds and various terrorists
To the north: Turks + terrorists of all kinds, even Chinese
In total they have spent hundreds of billions of dollars, for what? only to martyrize the most civilized and tolerant country in the entire Islamic world, and in the end the Zionist dome together with the NATO cartel have even lost face.

What really matters is, that the Russia / Turkey ceasefire agreement holds up very nicely and the lives of many people have been saved. The rest is nonsense.

Jens Holm

Thats a start, but the reasons are not gone at all. Even the JIhadists are corrects in needed changes even most of them should not be followed.


Only Jihadists with a foreskin should be followed.

It would save a lot of ammo:)

Its so pathetic and naive funny that so many here again and again proudly anounce Turks are retreating.

They are not.


Sad but true

Jens Holm

Never heard before as well. And biased in the same way too.

No antivirus found. No malware fighter used. No updates as well.


So the March 5 agreement says that the South side of M4 should be under Russian control but on the map above I can count, including the new one, 12 Turkish posts plus one on the motorway itself, interesting (sarcasm)


Via these magnificent Observations Posts the Great Turkish Nation is Observing the Creation of the New Ottoman Empire! Praise Turkey and its most faithful servant, the pudgy SOHR-representative!
