On June 11, the Turkish military established yet another post in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib, where several terrorist groups operate.
Enab Baladi, a pro-opposition outlet, said the new post was established in the vicinity of the town of Monataf in the al-Zawiya Mount in the southern Idlib countryside.
“This military post is considered close to the frontlines with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies,” a commander in the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation told Enab Baladi, adding that more points will be established in al-Zawiya Mount in the upcoming few days.
With the establishment of the new post, the number of Turkish positions in Greater Idlib has grown to 63, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Last week, four positions were established in southern Idlib.
Turkey is not only establishing more posts in Greater Idlib, but also deploying reinforcements there. On June 11, a large Turkish convoy entered the Syrian region.
The large Turkish military presence in Greater Idlib has forced militants there to adhere to the Turkish-Russian March 5 agreement. However, this presence remains a serious threat to the SAA.
