A Turkish security source told Reuters that Turkey has no plans to withdraw its forces from observation posts in Idlib, although three of these sites are in areas now controlled by the Syrian government.
The source added that “there are no problems” with the Turkish military in Saraqib, noting that every observation center in Idlib is equipped for defense.
In turn, “Anatolia” quoted a Turkish security source as saying that “the Turkish armed forces in Idlib are ready to perform all the tasks that will be assigned to them, and do whatever is necessary in the event of receiving orders.”
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had given the Syrian army until the end of February to withdraw behind Turkish observation posts in Idlib, threatening to launch a military operation in the region.
