On February 6 morning, the Turkish military established a new observation post in the Taftanaz Air Base in the eastern Idlib countryside.
The al-Moharar News, an outlet affiliated with the Turkish-backed Sahm Corps, released video showing dozens of battle tanks, armored vehicles and engineer vehicles of the Turkish Armed Forces to the air base.
A source in the Syrian military conformed to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) that a large Turkish unit was deployed near the towns of Taftanaz, Binnish and Ma’arrat Misrin.
Last week, the Turkish military established similar posts around Saraqib in southeast Idlib in an attempt to halt the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) advance towards the city. The attempt failed, as the army was able to liberate Saraqib earlier today.
The establishment of more observation posts in Idlib indicates that Turkey is still determined to support its allies in the Syrian region. A day earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened the SAA with a military action if it doesn’t withdraw from certain parts of the region.
