More than 300 people have left IDLIB’s de-escalation zone in Syria through the humanitarian corridor in the last 24 hours, the Russian Ministry of Defense’s Reception, Distribution and Refugee Settlement Center said in a statement.

“In total, 301 refugees (112 women and 141 children), 10 vehicles and 100 heads of cattle passed through the Abu al-Duhur border post to Aleppo province from Idlib’s de-escalation zone,” the statement said.

The statement said that 175 Syrians, including 81 children, received necessary medical care.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to create a demilitarized zone by October 15 along the line of contact between the armed opposition and Syrian government forces in Idlib province, while the ministers of Defense of the two countries signed a memorandum on stabilizing the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

Meanwhile, the operation of the Russian Aerospace Defense Force in Syria completely changed the balance of interests in the region and became a success for Russia and its president, Turkish Deputy Ozturk Yılmaz said on the eve of the third anniversary of the start of the Russian operation in Syria.

Russia’s appearance on Syrian territory has completely changed the balance of interests in the region in the military sense. Russia has always been interested in the Middle East, but has never directly participated in the conflicts in the region with such a level of military presence,” Yılmaz said.

He said that Russia “legitimized Syrian President Bashar Assad at the negotiating table. So it can be said that the Russian operation in Syria is successful, also from the point of view of strengthening positions of Assad.”

According to him, the whole world is watching the situation in Syria, which is a result of the success of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his administration. Through military action and talks, Russia has managed to promote the Syrian theme as the main diplomatic space to find partners, he said.

The Turkish MP thinks the US has no one to cooperate with in Syria beyond the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

“Russia is working closely with Ankara, Tehran and Damascus, and in fact this alliance has borne fruit. Through the agreement on Idlib, Russia has become Turkey’s key partner, at least in the territory west of the Euphrates river, controlled by Assad. The process will then move to the eastern part of the Euphrates,” commented Ozturk Yılmaz.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have indeed agreed to create a demilitarized zone by October 15 along the line of contact between the armed opposition and Syrian government forces in Idlib province, while the Ministers of Defense of the two countries signed a memorandum on stabilizing the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone. The United States has expressed its extreme discontent with this situation.
