"Within the framework of TUR-RF Agreement/Protocol, the 6th TUR-RF Combined Land Patrol on M-4 Highway in Idlib was conducted with the participation of land and air elements on Tuesday," Turkey’s Defense Ministry said in a tweet, TRT reported.
The M-4 highway, also known as the Aleppo-Al Hasakah road, is about 30 kilometers from Turkey's southern border.
Last month, Moscow and Ankara agreed on a protocol urging parties to "cease all military actions along the line of contact in the Idlib de-escalation area” starting on March 6.
Joint Turkish-Russian patrols agreed in the deal began on March 15 along the M-4 highway from the settlement of Trumba – two kilometers west of Saraqeb – to the settlement of Ain Al Havr.
