Turkey to open post office branches in Syria’s Aleppo

Turkey’s national postal authority will open post office branches in the towns of al-Bab and Çobanbey (al-Rai in Arabic) in the Aleppo province of northeastern Syria.

Postal, banking and logistics services will be provided once the General Directorate of Post and Telegraph Organization (PTT) opens branches in both towns.

A building in al-Bab was recently renovated to be used as a PTT branch office.

In Çobanbey, located across the border from Turkey’s Kilis province, preparations for a new PTT branch office are reportedly on the verge of completion.

Last month, the PTT opened a branch office in the Syrian city of Jarabulus, across the border from Turkey’s Gaziantep province. An official inauguration ceremony for the branch has yet to be carried out.

Turkey currently undertakes a number of educational, healthcare and security services in parts of northern Syria secured as part of a Turkish military operation earlier this year.
