Ankara has apparently made up its mind to the expected liberation of Khan Shaykhun by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies.
So, now, Turkish forces are setting up a new observation post north of the town. The new post will likely ‘observe’ how Khan Shaykhun and the entire area south of it will soon be liberated by the SAA.

The post is being set up by troops that were deployed in the area with a large military convoy that on August 19 failed to reach Khan Shaykhun and rescue militants there before the M5 highway was cut off.
