Turkey continues to carry out construction works at the borders with Syria in northern latakia in what can be viewed as a unilateral demarcation of borders.

Heavy machinery, trucks, and bulldozers were spotted digging up grooves in order to erect a wall all the way to the maritime point separating the two countries i.e. al-Samra village on the Mediterranean.

Turkey has deployed 12 observation outposts in northern Syria to monitor the de-escalation zone agreement as per Astana talks with the other guarantor states; Russia and Iran.

The Turkish government has been involved in supporting militants fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad since the outbreak of the uprising in 2011.

According to Anadolu Agency, Syrian rebels finished withdrawing all their heavy weapons from the front lines in the northwestern province of Idlib on Monday.
This comes as part of a deal reached between Russia and Turkey to demilitarize the front lines between Syrian government forces and the opposition in and around the province.

Naji al-Mustafa, spokesman for the National Front for Liberation, a Turkish-backed umbrella group, said Sunday the alliance had unanimously agreed to implement the deal reached last month and expected to demilitarize 15-20 kilometers (9-12 miles) along the front lines by Oct. 15.
