    Turkey reportedly wants to use the Abu Alduhur military base in the rebel-held province of Idlib in Syria as an observation post.

    The country already has its troops deployed in some areas of Idlib as part of a de-escalation zone.

    But the region has recently come under heavy attack by President Bashar al-Assad's regime and its allies with an increase in air raids targeting civilian areas.
