"NEW YORK, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday Turkey will deploy troops in Syria's northern Idlib region as part of a so-called de-escalation agreement brokered by Russia last month.

The "de-escalation" zones, agreed by Turkey, Russia and Iran, would be further discussed in talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during his trip to Ankara next week, Erdogan said in an interview with Reuters while he was in New York for the annual United Nations General Assembly.

"The de-escalation zone agreement was a promising idea ... under which Russians are maintaining security outside Idlib and Turkey will maintain the security inside Idlib region," Erdogan said. "The task is not easy ... With Putin we will discuss additional steps needed to be taken in order to eradicate terrorists once and for all to restore peace."

It's amazing to me how under reported the expose on massive 2.2 Billion dollar, scratching the surface, US gun running in the vicinity of the ME is? Or how just dribs and drabs of it come through in varying reports? Without explaining the scale/scope of this operation... I thought it quite an exercise of creating a both a convoluted paper and real world trail to discourage anything concrete being put together and yet- somebodies managed to shed some light on what is surely a vastly larger gun running scale, by their own admission, then they could expose! Gotta give them credit for taking the time and doing the digging!

It's covered relatively extensively in this nearly ten day old post:
