Syrian Army Shelled Turkish Military Post In Southern Idlib: Monitoring Group

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled late on October 3 the newly-established Turkish military post in the southern Idlib countryside, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

According to the London-based monitoring group, several rockets launched by the army landed in the perimeter of the post, which is located near the town of Maar Hattat. No one was reportedly killed, or injured.

Turkey established the post following the SAA’s advance in northern Hama last August.

This was the third such attack on the Maar Hattat post. On September 13, a shell fired by the army’s artillery hit a berm surrounding the post. A day later, the post’s perimeter was shelled again.

Earlier, the SAA shelled militants’ positions in southern Idlib, killing or injuring at least ten Turkish-backed gunmen. This suggests that the attack on the Turkish post was a mere accident.

Turkey’s Ministry of National Defence has not commented on the shelling, yet. Ankara usually ignores the attacks that don’t result in any causalities.
