According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a violent explosion was heard on Latakia-Aleppo International Highway yesterday, as a result of an explosive device that exploded in the vicinity of Ariha, moments after a joint Turkish-Russian patrol passed on the “M4” road.
This was followed by an alert by Turkish forces in the region. The Turkish and Russian vehicles came out on a joint patrol yesterday from the village of Tarnaba, to the village of Kafr Shlaya in Idlib countryside.
This comes a week after a Turkish military man was killed in an explosion on Latakia-Aleppo International Road, in which a member of the Turkish forces was killed in an explosive device explosion, on the Aleppo-Lattakia road, west of the city of Jisr al-Shughour.
