For the fourth time, Turkish forces refuse to run a joint patrol with the Russian military police on the Syrian-Turkish border in northern Syria, in what appears to be an effect of the dispute between the two forces in Idlib that extended to the areas of NE, Syria.
Armored vehicles of the Russian military police stood opposite the Syrian-Turkish border in the village of Ashma, west of the city of Kobani, waiting for the Turkish occupation forces to run a joint patrol, but the Turkish side did not attend again, which prompted the Russian military police to leave the patrol alone.
The Russian patrol toured villages located near the Turkish-Syrian border, west of the city of Kobani, and then returned to the Russian point in the radio center west of the city.
Since February 3 this year, Turkey has refused to go out with the joint patrols with the Russian side on NE, borders of Syria, in implementation of the Sochi understandings that were reached on November 22 last year.
On the third of February, 8 Turkish soldiers were killed by bombing by the Syrian regime forces in Idlib, which was a Turkish condemnation, and since then Turkey has refused to go out with the Russians in the patrols and is invoking the weather conditions.
The death toll of the Turks rose to 13 after the Syrian regime re-targeted them at Taftanaz Airport and killed 5 Turkish soldiers.
Since the killing of its soldiers, Turkey has refused 4 times to go out in joint patrols with the Russians, twice in Al-Jazeera region and twice in Kobani.
