Turkish Forces Conduct Patrol On M4 Highway In Greater Idlib Without Russian Participation

Donate

On June 18, Turkish forces conducted a patrol on the M4 highway in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

The Russian Military Police didn’t take part in the patrol, which set off from town of Tronba in south Idlib. Turkish forces managed to reach the town of Kafir in the countryside of the city of Jisr al-Shughur.

In the course of the new patrol, Turkish forces passed through checkpoints of al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham terrorists.

Opposition sources claimed that Russian forces didn’t take part in the patrol due to the attack that targeted one of their armored vehicles during the last joint patrol, which took place two days ago.

The Turkish patrol was likely carried out to scout and secure the M4 ahead of an upcoming joint patrol with the Russian Military Police. Ankara is committed to open the highway under the March 5 agreement with Russia. Any safety issues or delays could jeopardize the agreement.
