UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Amid escalating fighting between Syrian forces and militants in Idlib and Aleppo countryside, the Turkish army sent new military reinforcements yesterday, Saturday, to its units deployed on the border with Syria.
Anadolu Agency reported that a reinforcements convoy comprising tanks and armored personnel carriers arrived at the Rehanli district, adjacent to the Syrian Idlib governorate in the state of Hatay in southern Turkey.
The agency added that the convoy headed towards the military units deployed on the border with Syria, in a second batch of reinforcements in recent days.
This comes in conjunction with the escalation of the Syrian opposition factions and terrorist groups, their attacks on army positions in the countryside of Aleppo, and after statements by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which he indicated the use of military force to “stabilize Syria” in response to what he considered a breach by Moscow and Damascus of existing understandings regarding Idlib and areas Another Syria.
During the last days, the Turkish army has established three new observation points in the vicinity of the city of Saraqib in Idlib countryside, in light of the Syrian army’s continued progress towards this strategic city after liberating several villages and towns in Idlib countryside, the largest of which is Ma’rat al-Numan.
