Turkish army tanks in Idlib, monitoring zones established

"No one can say to us, "why are you doing this"?" he thundered.

Turkey says its operation, along with Syrian rebel groups it backs, is part of a deal it reached last month with Russian Federation and Iran in Astana, Kazakhstan, to reduce fighting between insurgents and the Syrian government.

A total of 14 "observation posts" will be set up by the Turkish army, according to local media, while some 500 Turkish soldiers could be deployed to Idlib.

In meetings of Turkey, Russia and Iran in Kazakhstan's capital, Astana, Syria's border with Idlib province of Turkey was declared a conflict zone. The three countries are guaranteeing the ceasefire regime in Syria.

Several Turkish military vehicles, ambulances and tankers were visible in photographs published by Turkey's Anadolu news agency late on Thursday stationed at a village near Turkey's Reyhanli border gate opposite Bab al-Hawa.

Shanghai Masters: Rafael Nadal beats Grigor Dimitrov to reach semi-finals
While a Nadal-Federer final looms, Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro could ruin the script, as he did at the U.S. The Croat, who has yet to drop a set in this year's tournament, served 10 aces as he registered a 6-3 6-4 win.

The operation in the northwestern region was launched under a May deal between Turkey, which backs groups opposed to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's regime, and Russian Federation and Iran, who support Assad. Russia, Syria and Turkey have been discussing a deal for the Turkish involvement.

"It remains to be seen what happens to the fighters who control Idlib province".

The YPG accused Turkey of making threatening moves towards Afrin, the neighbouring region held by the militia.

Last year, Turkey launched the Euphrates Shield operation, an incursion into northern Syria alongside Syrian rebel groups to take territory on the frontier from Islamic State.

Moustafa Sejari, a senior official in rebel group Liwa Al Moutassem taking part in the operation, said on Twitter that the Turkish deployment was meant to "protect the region from bombing and to cut the path of (Kurdish) separatists". He said that Turkey plans to further enhance steps in providing safety in Idlib.
