BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – A Turkish security convoy entered the Idlib Governorate, Friday, to monitor the ongoing battle in the southeastern part of the province, a military source told Al-Masdar News this evening.

According to the source, at least a half dozen Turkish military vehicles made their way towards the Abu Dhuhour front, where they monitored the battle between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham for several hours.

The source added that the purpose of monitoring the battle was for the Turkish military to get a sense of what is going on at this front before they agree to any ceasefire at the upcoming Sochi peace conference.

As soon as the Turkish convoy reached the Abu Dhuhour area, the Russian and Syrian air forces temporarily halted their airstrikes, possibly indicating that both Damascus and Moscow had prior knowledge of Ankara’s actions.
