On February 15, a convoy of the Turkish Army, consisting of several armored vehicles, bulldozers and trucks, entered the northern governorate of Idlib, according to Syrian opposition sources.

The Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS)-linked news agency Iba’a and the Turkish Anadolu Agency confirmed that the Turkish Army convoy will establish an observation post in the village Sarman in the southern Idlib countryside.

A unit of the Turkish Army conducted a reconnaissance mission around the city of Maarrat al-Nu’man and in the villages of Sarman and al-Ghadfa southeast of it on February 14.

Previously, the Turkish Army established two similar observation post in the town of al-Eis in the southwestern Aleppo countryside and in the village of Tell Tuqan in the southeastern Aleppo countryside.

The fourth Turkish observation post will likely be established around Khan Shaykhun town, 20km south of Maarrat al-Nu’man, next week. According to Tukey’s Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin, Russia and Turkey agreed to establish twelve observation posts in northern Syria during the Astana talks.

In a related development, an unnamed official of HTS told Iba’a that the Taftanaz airbase will not be handed over to the Turkish Army. The official also revealed locals had removed the wreckage of Syrian helicopters from the airbase on February 14 and said that HTS had returned the wreckage to the airbase on the same day.

    not very good news

    • Skagos

      Why? Russia wants this. I am sure they have a solid plan.

      • Ronald

        To get the FSA the Turkish jihadists to wipe out the HTS the American jihadists ?

        • Skagos

          Brilliant point… that earned you a block.

        Syria and their allied forces first take out all soft targets to collect resources then they will have enough resources and should go to hard targets with full blow.

          Russia’s strategy in Syria to eliminate ISIS and anti-regime forces has been a total failure since their adversaries are alive and kicking, and in many instances regaining lost territories while consolidating their current positions – thanks mainly to US, NATO and Israel military assistance. Seems that Vladimir Putin and associates assumed that America (and Israel by extension) will sit idle and do nothing on behalf of their clients as soon as Russia started its military campaign on Syrian soil…facts on the ground proved that the Kremlin was 100% wrong.

          • Rob

            Don’t drink so much otherwise one day you will end up in a hospital. US have many clients in Middle East for example ISIS, Al-Qaeda, FSA, SDF, YPG, PKK, Israel etc etc. US is a mother of all terrorists.

            You are confusing between the US and Iran.
            Iran is the source of instability in the Middle East.
            Russia should run things in Syria without Iran’s interference.

          • as

            Yeah those Iranians keep drone bombings weddings and funerals fund and arms terrorist groups and operating 11 Aircraft Carriers in terrorizing the whole global shipping routes and economic exclusive zone and keep operations of their globally located foreign base including the one in Japan and North Korea which they keep to starve the poor south Koreans after they bomb the south Koreans to submission in korean wars.

          • Rob

            This is Iran that advice Assad that join Russia. Then Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Russia jointly kicked out US proxies from the 70% Syrian land. So you call this instability, are you drunk or you serving me disinformation? Move away, mind your business and don’t come again.

          • Free man

            I notice that it is hard for you to hear anything other than the narrative that the mullahs have been feeding you for years.
            Iran has completed its role in Syria, it is time to leave.
            Russia knows how to stabilize the situation in Syria. At this point, Iran is only interfering.
            It’s hard for you to hear, but it’s the truth.

          • Rob

            For living fake Israel takes US$10 billion each year from our government. Its a pity and shame that one side they are surviving on charity and on other side they claiming bravery. According to Torah Jews are not allowed to occupy Palestine and they should have to stay away from Palestine but according to statistics Israel have no religion and that is why these fake Israel cannot claim the land of Palestine.

            The real practical Jews called Ultra Orthodox Jews who campaign against Zionism and saying that Israel are abusing our religion and demand for the immediate dismantling of the state of Israel. The real Jews will never kill, this is Israeli fake Jews that kidnapping and killing Palestinians because Israel don’t follow Torah. Israel only follow Satan.

            rob I doubt you are an American and I don’t understand much about Jewish Torah.
            But as the US ambassador to the United Nations said recently : “On every front of this conflict, we find fighters imported by Iran from Lebanon, Iraq, and Afghanistan,”. This is the way to continue war, not peace.
            If Iran continues to interfere with Russia’s efforts to stabilize the situation, Syria will suffer.

          • Rob

            I don’t care if you are a Zionist because Zionist have no religion. Zionist just uses Jewish religion as a weapon against world communities but please stop taking charity from our government. United Nation is US drawing room. What US ambassador say in that place I don’t buy. Thank you.

      Intended or not, the Turkish purchase of S-400 is working out like a masterstroke of NATO. The Russian elite was probed for weakness, and unsurprisingly it was noted that they’re bisnismeny first and foremost. So for a couple measly billion, Turkey is now the THIRD country (besides IL/US) that can Balkanize and gobble up Syria with impunity. Curious to know what Assad (and Syrians in general) thinks of this.

      • velociraptor

        I assume, Assad is not happy. But he has no choice.

    • Free man

      Assad is not Russia’s only ally. Turkey is no less important to Russia.
      In practice, Russia, Iran, Turkey and the United States divided Syria between them.

  • Free man

    The Turkish enter Syria in order to stay.
    Once they enter another country they do not leave like in Cyprus and northern Iraq.
    This is very bad news for the unity of Syria.

  • Icarus Tanović

    They entered Syria with cooperation with Russia and Iran. After Astana they did olive branch, not before.
    For dear God sake, boys have a slightly longer memory than a day or week.
    Turkey will do absolutely NOTHING in Syria without Iranian and Russian aproval.

    • electron

      That is not how things work in reality. They may bluff restraint now, but once they are set up deep in Sy territory, they could go as far as attack saa, after all, they are a otan member, what could ru do? They may set up AA and deny ruaf the air space. What could ru do?

      It made huge gambles and is now completely dependent on Tork for its own interests in Sy and elsewhere. Now they are going to transfer technology to Tork and enable it to produce its own s400 components.

      • Icarus Tanović

        No, buddy, just wait and see.
        Things ain’t going on like that.
        Cheers.
