The Turkish military has reinforced its observation post near the town of Surman in the southeastern countryside of Syria’s Idlib, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

According to the London-based monitoring group, a Turkish convoy consisting of four vehicles arrived at the post on September 8.

The Surman post is one of twelve such position established last year in the framework of the Astana Process. The post is located 15km to the southeast of the key city of Ma`arat al-Nu`man, the biggest urban center in southern Idlib.

In the last few weeks, several pro-government sources reported that Ma`arat al-Nu`man will be the next target for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The army is supposedly preparing an operation to capture the city, which is located on the strategic Damascus-Aleppo highway.

In order to reach Ma`arat al-Nu`man, the SAA will have to besiege the Surman observation post. This explains why the Turkish military is reinforcing the post, especially amid reports on a nearing end of the current ceasefire.

    4 trucks is hardly to be called a reinforcement though. For all we know they only delivered kebabs. Got to have lots of kebabs for when the Syrian Army takes the surrounding area. There’s not much else to do then afterwards but eat kebabs.

    Ma`arat al-Nu`man is the next stop of the Idlib’s south front, but the problem (for takfiris) is that will be others, more two, more three? For the takfiris to guess.

    Erdogan looks like devil his father. Putin is Judas Iskariot biggest sell out that the Russia has ever produced.

    Take lawfully granted opportunities to betray Syria, Libya, Iran and Russian weapons factories by trying to sell most advanced technology and weapons to adversary Trump.

    Sell second hand missile nothing defence systems to Syria and Iran who never attack Russians.But sell s-400 to his master devils son Erdogan who order downing of Russian jet. Both are double face I dont no why cant their open double face web side.
