What are Turkey's Plans for Syria?


Turkey wants to ensure security in the region where some of the most violent conflicts of the Syrian civil war have taken place. During the Astana talks in May, Russia, Turkey, and Iran signed a deal to establish de-escalation zones in Syria, which included Idlib.
Ankara says it isn't sending its forces in just yet, but providing logistical and intelligence support. But could this be the beginning of more direct involvement in the war? And what will be the cost?
