Turkish army has set up its 11th observation point in Syria's northwestern Idlib province in accordance with the Astana process, according to reporters on site.

The reporters in Idlib said on Monday the observation point has been established in Zawiya in the southern countryside of the province.

Under the Astana agreement, Turkey will maintain 12 points from Idlib's north to south.

Idlib, located in northwestern Syria on the Turkish border, has faced intense attacks by the Bashar al-Assad regime after a vicious civil war broke out in 2011.

Since March 2015, Idlib is no longer under control of the Assad regime and has been overrun by opposition groups.
