The Turkish army has launched a new base in the area of Jabal Al-Akrad near the northern city of Latakia in Syria.
The new base, according to Turkish sources, is intended t undermine the Syrian army’s move towards the district around Latakia.
The sources said, “The army has set up a central military leadership for its forces serving in Syria centred on Antioch.”
“The leadership is tasked with administering Syrian territory controlled by Turkey and protecting the Syrian people who have been under heavy attacks by regime forces.
“The news website believes that this step might be the first move in the annexation of the region by Turkey,” the sources added.
The sources further claimed that, Turkey did not respect the Turkish-Russian agreement related to the de-escalation of tension in the north of Syria signed in March this year.
The government of the UAE is said to be working against Turkey on a number of different fronts.
