  • Turkish drones start operating in northern Syria

Akar also reviewed the place where the coordination center of the security zone in northern Syria will be created, Turkish media reported.

The two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies had reached an agreement on 7 August to set up the joint operations centre in Turkey to administer the safe zone, averting a Turkish offensive on the region as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened unilateral military action on 4 August.

On August 14, the Turkish drones began to fly over northern Syria to observe the territory as part of the agreement on the creation of a security zone in northern Syria reached between the USA and Turkey.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that work was continuing to make the joint operations center in Sanliurfa operational.

His comments come as an American military delegation headed by Lieutenant General Stephen Twitty, deputy commander of the US European Command, was expected in the southeastern province of Sanliurfa.
