Turkey to retain control over observation post in Idlib
Turkey will maintain its presence at the ninth observation post in the Syrian town of Morek despite the Syrian army regaining control over the city of Khan Sheikhoun, located in the country's northwestern Idlib province, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said.
"The ninth observation post in the town of Morek remains in its initial point despite the city’s fall. The Syrian army regained control of the city of Khan Sheikhoun," Aksoy stressed.
He refused to comment when asked how the observation post was supposed to continue functioning after the city moved under Damascus' control, Sputnik reported.
A local military source said earlier that Syrian troops had now completely surrounded the towns of Latmenah, Kafr Zita, Latmeen and Morek in the north of Hama province, which borders Idlib to the southwest.
