Observatory: Turkish observation point shelled by Syrian regime

The outskirt of Turkish observation point in MaraHatat south of Marat al-Numan has been exposed to the shelling of the Syrian regime's artillery, which resulted in the material damage, before hours Ankara meeting. 

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the regime forces shelled with artillery shells the town of MaraHatat near the Turkish point south of Marat al-Nu'man, causing material damage.

In the area called de-escalation "12 Turkish points". Its fate is unknown in light of the escalation in the region, especially the point in Mork in Hama countryside, where it is completely besieged by the regime forces, after the latter ended a previous truce and resumed its attack on the region, accusing Turkey of continuing to use its terrorist tools in Idlib. The regime forces then took control of large areas in the countryside of Idlib and Hama, all the way to Khan Sheikhoun.

Regime forces and Russia targeted observation point and Turkish forces in Idlib despite understandings between them. A convoy heading to Mork Point was hit on August 19 by an air strike from a regime aircraft on the highway outside the city of Ma'aret al-Nu'man, in which three mercenaries were killed. In a car traveling in front of the convoy, regime forces said they were going to support Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists.

The Turkish media said at the time that the plane that carried out the raid may be Russian, and Turkey did not send its fighter planes to protect the convoy, was forced to stop and retreated and headed to another Turkish observation point in Syria.

The rest of the so-called De-escalation zone is being witnessed by warplanes and reconnaissance flights, hours before the so-called "Astana guarantors" in Ankara to discuss the escalation in the region despite the existence of a ceasefire.
