BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – Turkey has finalized their plans to build more ‘observation’ posts in northern Syria, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday.

According to the Reuters News Agency, Erdogan told his AK Party members that over a quarter million Syrians have returned to Syria after they were recapture.

Turkey has already established at least twelve agreed upon observation posts in the provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, and Hama.

The Turkish military has also constructed an illegal observation post inside the Jabal Al-Akrad region of the Latakia Governorate.

According to a source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), these observation posts have allowed militants to launch attacks against their forces across northern Syria.

The timing of these new observation posts comes as the Syrian Arab Army prepares to kickoff their long-awaited offensive in the southwestern countryside of Idlib and northern Hama.

Do nor trust a Turk. The old saying on the Balkan goes. They were Turkeys neighbours for centuries.

La ofensiva debe seguir adelante, sobre todo a través de la frontera Turca para cortar suministros que envía Erdogan a sus mercenarios.
El gobierno Sirio tiene que hacer respetar la soberanía y expulsar al ejercito invasor junto a sus mercenarios.

Despite really deserving to lose the Hatay/Iskenderun region to Syria, SAA entering Turkey is not a realistic option, even if Turkey ends dropped by NATO… Read more »
