Tensions remain high in northern Latakia as Turkish troops dig in

26 May 2018 11:10

 

The situation in northern Latakia has remained very tense after several hours of sporadic missile and artillery strikes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed rebels.

Earlier today, a Turkish military convoy entered the northern countryside of the Latakia Governorate, which is a clear violation of the Astana peace agreement.

The Turkish troops reportedly positioned themselves in the northern part of the Jabal Al-Akrad region, prompting the Syrian military to fire several warning shots towards the rebel forces.

It is still not clear why the Turkish military is in northern Latakia; however, a source from the Syrian Army believes they are preparing to setup their 13th observation point.
