IDLIB, Syria/ANKARA (AA) - A convoy of Turkish Armed Forces moved to the fourth observation point in Syria's Idlib on Monday, which would be established in accordance with the Astana agreement, according to Anadolu Agency correspondent on the ground.
The convoy entered Idlib from Turkey in the morning and arrived safely in western Aleppo countryside, which is inside the de-escalation zone.
Turkey aims to establish a fourth observation point in the area with its deployed forces.
During peace talks in Kazakh capital Astana, the three guarantor countries, Turkey, Iran and Russia, had agreed to establish de-escalation zones in Idlib and in parts of Aleppo, Latakia and Hama provinces.
On Oct. 12, 2017, the Turkish military started to cross into the region to establish observation points to monitor the cease-fire regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
According to Astana agreement, Turkey is projected to gradually establish 12 observation points, from Idlib's north to south.
Idlib, which is located in northwestern Syria on the Turkish border, faced intense attacks by the Assad regime after a vicious civil war broke out in 2011.
Since March 2015, Idlib was no longer under the control of the Assad regime and was dominated by military opposition groups and anti-regime armed organizations.
