BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Turkish military cleared the strategic M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway) this week after the militants blocked the roadway to prevent the Russian-Turkish patrols.

Last Sunday, as many as 60 protesters blocked the M-4 Highway after the Turkish and Russian armed forces attempted to conduct their first joint patrol.

The following day, the militant forces blocked the highway with earth mounds, which forced the Turkish and Russian armed forces to temporarily suspend their patrols.

On Thursday,the Turkish military removed these mounds (video below) in order to resume their patrols with their Russian partners.

However, since then, the militants have once again blocked the highway using earth mounds.

Rusia debe exigir a Turquía a garantizar la patrulla conjunta sobre la carretera M-4, bien que sigan trabajando los Turcos.
