Since the Syrian military deployed their air defense systems to the Idlib Governorate, they have been much more successful in thwarting the prevalent drone attacks from the Turkish Armed Forces.
Furthermore, Turkey has been forced to be more careful with their strikes, as they have lost several drones in the past few days.
