BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – Turkey is not planning to abandon their observation posts in northern Syria, despite the fact their allied militant forces have lost a great deal of territory over the last two weeks.

On Monday morning, opposition activists reported that a large Turkish military convoy was traveling through the town of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man and making their way to the observation post in the northern Hama town of Morek.

While Turkey has remained relatively silent since the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) restarted their offensive in northwestern Hama, they have continued to reinforce their observation posts in the towns of Sheir Magher and Morek.

Russia and Turkey attempted to implement a ceasefire in the demilitarized zone earlier this month; however, Ankara failed to convince their allied militants to retreat from the area.

As of now, Ankara has no diplomatic relations with Damascus, so communication between the two governments is done through mediaries like Iran and Russia.

Turkey wants to fight the Kurds in Afrin and wanted to go into Afrin and attack PKK YPG SDF and a hard knock on the knuckle of ErDOG and a cutting plyer squeeze of his balz from the Americans convinced him that things could go out of hand if he crosses with Trump and changed his mind. Now he wants to prove his show of strength against SAA and see how the Syrian Arab Army will act. Turki Army is enjoying their vacation sitting in observation posts seeing their dogs that they bread and sent to Syria getting massacred SAA… Read more »

Turkey, when it sent troops in Syria, was warned that Ch.5 of NATO charter doesn’t applies in such case… In other terms, Russia/Syria have green light to attack Turkish invaders as much as their puppets (as long as they don’t cross Turkish border, thus, I’m not sure any NATO country is willing to fight for Turkey today, especially EU ones)

I agree DBS but Turki is trying to cuddle up with the bear and knows when the chips are really down and with now friends around now why make more enemies and they want to be on the better side of Russia. Russians know that the main Pain in the A*%e is Turki itself and are unable to take harsh decisions to evict them too. Due to Turki’s active participation the Daesh crossed into Iraq & Syria and slaughtered 1000s of 1000s of people of all ethnic races & background, they did not spare anyone. Turki knew fully well what… Read more »

Funny all those Turkish convoys through Syria never seem to be used to clear any jihadis and terrorists even those NOT nominally allied to Turkey?

Erdogan envía otro convoy lleno de suministros de guerra para sus mercenarios, el ejercito Sirio debe apresurar la ofensiva para dejar dentro a los cuarteles de auxilio dentro del territorio recuperado por Siria.
