BEIUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Turkish military will not withdraw from its 12 observation posts in northwest Syria, despite ongoing pressure from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

According to the Turkish Minister of Defense Hulusi Akar, his nation’s armed forces will remain at their observation posts and they will not be withdrawing anytime soon.

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency has said that Syrian government forces have carried out at least three attacks near a Turkish observation post in the Idlib de-escalation zone, one of 12 posts set up under an agreement between Turkey, Russia and Iran last May.

“Evacuating the observation post in Idlib after the regime’s attack is definitely not happening, it won’t happen anywhere,” Akar told reporters late on Tuesday.

“The Turkish Armed Forces will not retreat from where it is located.”

THS and other terrorists have home in Turkey where they get supplied. Better to push them in Turkey where Erdogan will gladly provide for his favorite jihadists. Obviously they do not belong to Syria causing death and destruction to the country.
