Hi Peter,

It is absolutely a gecko belonging to Cyrtopodion genus and it may be C. heterocercus mardinensis (Mardin Gecko) with a high possibility! However, it can be also C. kotschyi too. To say exact id, we have to see the structure of the scales of the underside of the tail! If they are keeled, it is absolutely Mardin Gecko which i know it from Latakia since i also hve been there 2 years ago for our herpetological studies. You can find both species post in my portfolio. Congratulations and welcome to TN with this lovely gecko shot!
Have a great sunday!

Ps. sorry for green smile! Because i consumed daily reserved ones!
