Syrian Army May Be Deployed To Reopen Strategic Highway Between Syria & Turkey

FILE IMAGE: Russian Military Police service members are in Syria

Russian and Turkish military delegations held an unusual meeting in the Turkish-occupied city of Azaz in northern Aleppo on March 20.

A source familiar with the situation told the pro-opposition SMART News Agency that the two sides discussed a plan to reopen a strategic highway that links the government-held city of Aleppo with the Turkish city of Gaziantep during the meeting.

Under the new plan, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will be deployed on a strip of the highway between the towns of Herbel and Maraanaz, which are held by Kurdish forces. The Russian Military Police will reportedly oversee the deployment, if the plan was put into motion.

Russia and Turkey agreed to open several strategic highways in northern Syria last September. The deal was a part of the demilitarized zone agreement. While Turkey’s proxies in northern Aleppo are cooperating with this deal, radical militants in Idlib are actively working to sabotage it.

The reopen of Aleppo-Gaziantep highway would boost the economy in the government-held part of Syria and ease the suffering of many Syrians, who have to travel through these conflicted areas on a regular basis.

    Finally! This will help the 3.2 million Syrian refugees in Turkey come back home, instead of having to travel to Jordan and Lebanon.

      Sadly, the Jordanian and Turkeys puppet regimes have let the CIA and MOSSAD recruit a lot of the “refugee” males into Wahhabi terrorist outfits. There are reports even in the controlled Jordanian media that a lot of these “refugees” are being trained at a Americunt military camps near Irbid and Al-Mafraq and then even shipped out to Afghanistan and Tajikistan. The figure in Jordanian media was 1300 males aged 17-50. The CIA blackmails these poor people by withholding food, money and medical care unless they join the headchoppers.

      Zionists will not believe this because it is not in their interest. LOL

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Erdogan is a loudmouth cowards like Trump and Turkeys are in no position to handle mass casualties, its ill-trained Anatolian mongol peasant conscripts are not going to die for Erdogan’s delusional caliphate. The Turkeys occupation of Syrian north would have been long over, if the arse licker Putin would not have crawled up Erdogan’s and Zionist arse. SAA can only depend on Iran, Iraq, Hezbollah and the Shia militias.

        Russia has done much to secure Syria from Jihadist trash.
        Perhaps you do not consider the larger game board, outside of it’s borders ?

    Let it pass, be great for the future of Syria

  • PZIVJ

    This is the northern highway through Azaz to Kilis, so Idlib will have nothing to do with it.
    This task appears to be easy to accomplish, as long as TFSA is under control there.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    There should be no “maybe” and SAA should start liberating all of Syria, including Golan. The FACT is that the Erdogan scum is a coward and the Turkeys have already groveled to terrorist exporting tiny Australia, after he made remarks about Gallipoli. The Turkeys have already lost over 1200 Anatolian peasants since they started supporting the Wahhabi headchoppers in Syria and Iraq and simply can not afford casualties. The SAA and its allies should just initiate a major offensive in Idlib.

    This is Syrian army splitting idea of Erdogan. Just for him to reinforce Idlib and Northern Syria.It just a trap.Syrian Forces you know that you never ever protected a highway completely as there were ambushing by Turkey hit and run terrorist. First please clear Idlib and then Eufrate.Dont open too many conduits think about a city with lots of conduit while you are fighting thugs

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putin convey message with Shiogu that he wants to withdraw his troops.Opening of that border means Turkey and his terrorists free movements. It’s not about refugees. Why is Turkey not concerned about Syrian civilians which USA is starving at Rukban refugee camp.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Putin withdrawal is already weakening of Syrian forces.There are tension between Erdogan and Putin like it or not.USA with its terrorists agenda is still in Syria. Turkey wants o imposed terrorist HTS on Syria government. Erdogan wants Northern Syria then after Syria will be split up by NATO between Eufrate Southern and Northern. Israel is still a threat to Syria it will soon start with bombing runs.Syria terrorism is still big.Putin must stop weapons testing and pleasing Erdogan and get real.Putin first favor Trump but Trump dump him.putin actually wants to play white monopoly capitalism but white USA administration ,Israel regime and NATO white council’s doesnt exept him and Russians.Their only want to split up Russia.
