1. The control of the FSA militants and affiliated groups in order to avoid destruction of the balance that gave the opportunity to Turkey to return to the big game.
2. Conduct a local anti-Kurdish operations against Rojava (similar objects are likely to be deployed in the Western part of the Turks controlled the territory for operations against Afrin).
3. The intensification of intelligence-technical intelligence in Northern Syria.
4. The basing of units of the regular army, who represent the military presence in the region (modeled on the Turkish military base in Iraq).
