Event

Turkish forces reportedly hit 115 Syrian government targets, destroying 101 of them, in northwestern Syria on Monday, February 10, after Syrian forces killed five Turkish soldiers at a military base in Taftanaz (Idlib province) earlier the same day.

Similar armed exchanges are to be expected between Turkish and Syrian forces in northwestern Syria over the near term.

Context

To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
