The Turkish military has deployed troops to establish a new observation point to monitor the ceasefire in the de-escalation zone in Syria's opposition-held Idlib.

A convoy from the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) has reached Maarretinuman district and has been deployed in As-Sirman village, under the scope of the Astana process, Anadolu Agency reported.

The new observation point is located some 70 kilometers from the Turkey-Syria border.

Assad regime forces and Iran-backed groups are located on the lines across 10 kilometers, the report added.

The Astana peace process involves reducing warfare in several regions of war-torn Syria through the establishment of de-escalation zones.
