According to the TV channel, the Turkish convoy consists of 30 vehicles, including 12 armored vehicles carrying equipment.

Earlier, Al Mayadeen TV channel reported that the Syrian forces had surrounded a Turkish observation point in Maar Hattat, a Syrian village in the Idlib Governorate. On December 23, another Turkish post in Sarman, in the south of the Idlib Governorate, was besieged.

The Syrian army’s command launched an offensive in Idlib on December 19, 2019. The forces have liberated 46 settlements in the south and the east of the Governorate, regaining control over 320 square kilometers of the territory.

Idlib is the only Syrian region that is still controlled by illegal armed groups. A northern de-escalation zone was set up in Idlib in 2017 to give shelter to militants and their families who were reluctant to voluntarily surrender arms in Eastern Ghouta and in Syria’s southern regions. Twelve Turkish army’s observation points are operating in the Idlib Governorate.

30 Turkish armed vehicles will not be enough to stop the Syrian Government recovering Idlib. Especially as the Turks have already moved many of their jihadis and Syrian mercenaries to the Libyan theatre of conflict. The interesting thing would be if the Turks used their air-force would the RuAF shoot them out of the sky. Just saying….
