Turks Get Out 76f84

Near several Turkish observation points in Hama and Aleppo countrysides, hundreds of Syrian civilians gathered in a protest demanding the exit of Turkish forces from the area.

Local sources said that the protesters demonstrated in front of the Turkish points in “Murk”, “Sorman” and “Tal Tokan” in Hama countryside, flying the Syrian flags and pictures of President Al-Assad, and demanding the exit of the Turkish forces from these points.

A video showed members of the Turkish point in “Murk” firing tear gas at the demonstrators, with the aim of dispersing them after they raised slogans against the Turkish presence, and several cases of suffocation were recorded among civilians.

A number of residents demonstrated as well in front of the Turkish point in the vicinity of “Al-Eis” town, Aleppo southern countryside, raising slogans rejecting the Turkish presence.

The Turkish points in Hama countryside, along with some points in Idlib and Aleppo countrysides, are among the points that the Syrian army cordoned off after its massive military operation that was stopped last March and resulted in controlling the areas extending from Aleppo western countryside to Idlib southern countryside and Hama northern countryside, which secures all the areas surrounding the international “Aleppo-Damascus” road, making the Turkish points deployed in those areas ineffective due to their encirclement.
