The Turkish forces established a new military post within the “de-escalation” zone, in violation of the “Moscow” agreement signed with the Russian side.
A field source stated that the Turkish forces established a new point in the town of “Qastoun” in the Al-Ghab Plain, northwest of Hama, after the area was explored over the past days, and the vehicles, soldiers and military equipment were transferred to it through successive batches.
