Beirut, Oct. 20, (dpa/GNA) – Turkish troops have begun to withdraw from a key observation point in Syria’s Hama province, a monitoring group and activists in the area told dpa on Tuesday.

« Turkish troops started since early Tuesday their withdrawal from the largest observation point in Mork, in the countryside of Hama, which is one of dozens which were established in north-west Syria since 2018, » Rami Abdel Rahman, Head of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told dpa.

« From 12 key Turkish observation points, 8 now lie in areas controlled by the Syrian regime, » he said.

Mork is in a government-controlled area.

Abdel Rahman said the withdrawal was part of a ceasefire agreement Turkey made with Russia in March, which halted fighting between the Moscow-backed Syrian government troops and Turkish-allied rebels.

Activists said Turkish troops will also withdraw from the area of Shir Maghar, also in Hama, as well as a military point east of Saraqeb town, in the countryside of Idlib.

They are also expected to leave observation points in the countryside of Aleppo and the eastern and south-eastern countryside of Idlib in the coming weeks.

They said that Turkey was meanwhile, fortifying posts south of Idlib city.

Idlib, in north-western Syria, is the last rebel stronghold in the country’s war-torn country.

Syrian government forces with Russian support began an offensive in the region last year, provoking humanitarian concerns at the United Nations.
