Inside Story - Can Turkey's military campaign in Syria's Idlib bring peace?

Turkish troops have crossed the border into Syria.

About 100 Turkish soldiers have moved into Syria’s Idlib province in a convoy of armoured vehicles.
Ankara says it is to enforce a de-escalation zone in the war-torn country as part of a deal with Iran and Russia.
But there are suspicions Turkey's real motive is to stop the Kurds extending their territory in the region.
And there is also the matter of a group with former ties to al Qaeda – Hay’et Tharir al Sham - which controls much of Idlib and is vowing to fight to the death.
What does Turkey's involvement mean for the war in Syria and can it help bring unity?
