Two Turkish soldiers were wounded by Syrian regime shelling on a Turkish observation point in the opposition-held de-escalation zone in Idlib, northwestern Syria, according to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense on May 4.

The wounded soldiers were evacuated to Turkey for medical care, the ministry said.

Turkish Armed Forces set up 12 observation points in May 2018 following the ninth round of Astana Peace Talks.

Last September, Turkey and Russia agreed to turn Idlib into a de-escalation zone in which acts of aggression would be strictly prohibited.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected severity.
