Erdogan demanded the Syrian military leave Turkish observation posts in Idlib

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made Wednesday demanding the Syrian government to withdraw its military outside the Turkish observation posts in Syrian Idlib
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made Wednesday demanding the Syrian government to withdraw its military outside the Turkish observation posts in Syrian Idlib by the end of February.  “The attack on our military begins a new era in Syria. We cannot allow this to continue. Last night, during a conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, I told him that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should go beyond the borders of the Sochi memorandum  “, outside the Turkish observation posts,” the Turkish leader said during a speech in parliament. “If the regime does not withdraw its military from our observation posts during February, then Turkey will be forced to do it itself.”  Erdogan also noted that the Turkish Armed Forces “have the right to self-defense in Idlib.”  The Syrian army liberated 22 settlements per day in the vicinity of Sarakib in Idlib province, where there is an outpost of terrorists from the Jebhat al-Nusra group.  The rapid advance of government forces allowed them to block the enemy’s supply lines to force the militants to surrender.  Sarakib is located at the intersection of the highway Latakia – Aleppo and Damascus – Aleppo.  The city covers the passage from the east to the provincial center of Idlib (320 km from Damascus).  Idlib is the only region in Syria that has remained in the hands of illegal armed groups since 2012.  In 2017, a northern de-escalation zone was created there, where militants who refused to lay down arms in Eastern Ghouta and the southern regions of Syria moved there.  In the province, there are 12 observation posts of the Turkish army.
