Turkmen Mountain (Arabic: جبل تركمان; Jabal Turkman, Turkish: Türkmen Dağı) is a mountain range in the north of Latakia region of Syria, in the area called Bayırbucak locally in Turkish, neighboring the Turkish border. The mountain range runs along the eastern length of Latakia Governorate. The area is mostly inhabited by Syrian Turkmen people and has seen military activity by the Syrian Army and Russian air strikes in late 2015. Close to 300,000 Turkmens have been displaced since the start of the Syrian civil war, especially in The Turkmens mountains, where the Government enacted a demographic change by forcing the last remaining Turkmen Families to leave to Turkey, and settled Alawite families in the areas controlled by government forces.
