Turkish troops coordinate actions in Idlib, Syria with Russian Federation - prime minister

Turkish troops coordinate actions in Idlib, Syria with Russian Federation - prime minister

Speaking Sunday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the de-escalation zones would be applied in Idlib with "Russia outside, Turkey inside" with Syrian opposition fighters it backs.

It was earlier reported that Turkey completed preparations for new military operations in Syria and military operations in Idlib may start in the coming days.

Turkish troops briefly exchange cross-border fire with Syrian rebels near village in Idlib province, monitor says. Turkey's private Dogan news agency reported that Turkey fired seven howitzer rounds into Idlib on Sunday.

Some mortar rounds slammed near the Deir Hassan camp for Syrian displaced people on the border area in northern Idlib, amid a state of fear among the people there. The Observatory said the shelling was followed by brief clashes and the lobbing of missiles as tension continued.

A rebel commander participating in the operation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told AFP in Beirut that "all the rebel groups" who took part in Euphrates Shield are participating in the latest operation.

There was no immediate Turkish comment on the reports.

The convoy's final destination was not immediately clear.

Turkey said on Thursday that it was prepared to carry out a cross-border operation to retake Syria's northern city of Afrin when necessary.

"In order to minimise the number of visitors to our embassy and consulates while this assessment proceeds, effective immediately we have suspended all non-immigrant visa services at all USA diplomatic facilities in Turkey".

"We have to help our brothers who arrived in Idlib after fleeing Aleppo".

HTS wants to continue fighting the government despite the establishment of "de-escalation zones".

Meanwhile, the "final large fight" in Iraq against the Islamic State group will take place on the border with Syria, a general in a US-led coalition against the militants said Saturday. "Salah al-Din al-Shishani is still alive and is somewhere in the regions controlled by militant groups in the west of Aleppo province".

"As for the Russians, they will not have a role in the areas of our control at all".

Deploying Russian and Iranian observers could potentially be a controversial issue, considering that the Syrian opposition, backed by Turkey, views the two countries as enemies due to their support for the Syrian government.

He said: "There are around 20 wounded and the toll of victims could rise". The strike also caused a fire in an area store.

The schisms and defections mean Tahrir Al Sham "has shrunk and is now confined to its primary component", said Sam Heller, a Syria expert at the Century Foundation think-tank.

Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said "military aircraft" had targeted the market in Maaret al-Numan, blaming the regime for the strike.

"Our efforts in Idlib are going on, in cooperation with the Free Syria Army, without problems at the moment", he told members of his ruling AK Party at a meeting in the western Turkish province of Afyon. "The goal of the operation is to liberate Idlib fully from Tahrir al-Sham".
