Turkish army sets up 10th observation point in Idlib


Turkish army on Wednesday announced that it has set up tenth observation point in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province.

In its official Twitter account, Turkish Armed Forces said: “No. 5 Observation Point, which is the tenth in Idlib region, has been established.”

Under the Astana, Kazakhstan agreement, Turkey is set to gradually establish 12 observation points, from Idlib's north to south.

Idlib, located in northwestern Syria on the Turkish border, has faced intense attacks by the Bashar al-Assad regime after a vicious civil war broke out in 2011.

Since March 2015, Idlib is no longer under the control of the Assad regime and has been overrun by opposition groups.
