A video taken from a Russian helicopter shows patrolling a section of the M4 highway in Zaevfrati on the section between Aleppo and Hasek province. Mi-8 flies at minimum altitude to assess the situation on earth. This also avoids the defeat of portable anti-aircraft missile systems.

It is reported that patrols are also being conducted on the ground with the help of armored personnel carriers and Typhoons, and helicopters cover them.

On February 16, it became known that the Russian military police began to establish control over the M5 highway, which passes through all of Syria. It connects Aleppo in the north with the cities of Hama, Homs and Damascus, and in the south reaches the province of Deraa and the border with Jordan. The road allows the military to quickly transfer equipment and deliver supplies.

As previously reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense, patrolling takes place in accordance with the agreement reached during the meeting of Russian and Turkish Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan on March 5.

The presidents of the two countries concluded an agreement according to which a ceasefire regime came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would be able to use force.
