UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Turkish army on Saturday sent new reinforcements to its troops stationed on the border with Syria amid Turkey’s threats to launch a military operation in the eastern Euphrates region.
According to the official “Anatolia” Turkish arrival of 9 trucks loaded with armored vehicles and a bus loaded with military personnel to the district of Agca Castle of the province of ليanlıurfa, adjacent to the province of Aleppo, Syria.
Turkish military sources told the agency that the reinforcements were sent to strengthen military units stationed on the Syrian border.
The arrival of the reinforcements comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced earlier on Saturday that his country would carry out an air and ground operation east of the Euphrates in Syria “to establish peace there,” saying it “is close enough to say it will happen today or tomorrow, “in light of Turkey’s displeasure with the progress of negotiations with the United States on the establishment of a safe area, which would alleviate Ankara’s security concerns in the face of Kurdish militants stationed in these territories.
“We made our preparations and completed the military operation plan in the east of the Euphrates and issued the necessary instructions,” Erdogan said, tacitly warning the United States, an ally of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) that Turkey regards as a terrorist organization.
