Turkey army says installing 'observation posts' in Syria's Idlib

Idlib is one of four so-called "de-escalation" zones under a deal brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran in May, as part of a major push to still fighting in war-torn Syria.

On Thursday night, Turkish military convoys entered northern Idlib after being dispatched from the Reyhanli district in Turkey's southeastern Hatay province. Turkey's declared aim is to eliminate groups affiliated with Al Qaeda from the border area and counter the expansion of the Kurdish rebels.

At the weekend, reconnaissance teams entered Idlib province as part of an global agreement to establish four de-escalation zones across Syria.

As Turkish troops deployed in the area, residents of the Darat Izza district - a de-escalation zone set up in Aleppo's western countryside - cheered for Turkey and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to AA.

Three other de-escalation zones are now operating in south-western Syria, eastern Ghouta (suburbs of Damascus) and northern Homs province.

While Turkey supports Syrian opposition fighters and calls for the removal of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Ankara has worked closely in the last few months with Russian Federation - who supports Assad - in the hope of bringing the war to an end.

The Syrian civil war has claimed more than 400,000 lives since it started in 2011, and displaced more than 5 million people.
