NEWS DESK – Sources mentioned that Turkey has completed the establishment and equipping of its first military base in the top of Mount Sheikh Barakat in the western countryside of Aleppo, under the protection of the mercenaries of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria Jabhit al- Nusra).
Local sites in Syria reported that the bulldozers of the Turkish occupation army have increased the pace of its performance to accelerate the establishment of the base with a strategic location, which is one of 8 bases Turkey seeks to establish within the Syrian territory occupied.
These sites quoted the mercenaries of the movement “Noraddin al- Zanki” which is involved with the mercenaries of Hayat Thrir al-Sham to dominate the western Aleppo countryside that the latter is still guarding the convoys of the Turkish occupation army transporting military equipment to the region since October 14, and the completion of the establishment of the base near the city of Darat Izzah west of Aleppo is expected within a few days.
Turkey began its incursion into the territory of Idlib province under the pretext of the so-called “de-escalation” areas, which it agreed with Russia and Iran on at the meetings of Astana consolidating its occupation of the Syrian territory.
During the incursion into the Syrian territory in Idlib and its settlement to Mount Barakat, the Turkish army was accompanied by four-wheel-drive vehicles loaded with Dushka weapons belonging to the mercenaries of Hayat Tahrir al- Sham (Jabhit al- Nusra) which protected the convoys of the occupation army despite Turkey’s claims to fight the mercenaries of the Jabhit al-Nusra.
Mount Sheikh Barakat which is known as Mount Darat Izzah is located in the western part of the city of Darat Izzah in the western part of Aleppo, overlooking the full western and northern and eastern countryside of Aleppo, overlooking the canton of Afrin, as well as the countryside of Idlib, Nobul and Zahra, it is characterized as a rugged and fortified area.
