Syrian Colonel Hassan Ali Ibrahim said that the situation on the M-4 highway connecting the provinces of Hasek and Aleppo has significantly improved.
The track was opened on December 11, when the Russian and Turkish military made a joint trip along it in order to consolidate the agreements reached under the memorandum of understanding between October 22. Over the entire length of the M-4, 20 strong points were set up by the Syrian and Turkish armies. Every day, the Russian military patrols the track.
“Since the creation of these points in the past, several cases of violations were recorded. Mostly this was the installation of improvised explosive devices on the highway, there were also cases of terrorists attacking our points. After the highway came under the protection of Syrian soldiers with the help of Russian troops, the number violations on it decreased significantly. I would like to thank Russia for the help, “the colonel told reporters.The former Italian Foreign Minister talked about Putin’s ability to maintain friendship
