Syrian government forces opened fire on a Turkish observation post in northwest Syria, two Turkish officials told Reuters on Thursday, but there were no Turkish casualties.

The incident came after an airstrike halted a Turkish military convoy and killed three civilians on Monday as the convoy headed south towards another observation post.

Turkey has 12 observation posts in northwest Syria, set up under an agreement with Russia and Iran. On Wednesday Turkish presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın said all of Turkey’s observation posts will remain in place and that support for the posts will continue.
