Turkey sends new military reinforcement to NW Syria

Syrian Observatory activists have reported seeing a new Turkish military column of nearly 35 vehicles crossing into the Syrian territory this afternoon, via Kafr Lusin border crossing. This column comes after the entry of another large Turkish military convoy to the “de-escalation zone”.

As Turkey keeps sending more military reinforcement to NW Syria, the number of Turkish military units, which entered the “de-escalation zone” since the new ceasefire came into effect has risen to 1,725, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.

From February 2 to date, SOHR activists monitored the entry of more than 5,135 trucks and military vehicles to the Syrian territory, including tanks, personnel carriers, armored vehicles, mobile bulletproof guard booths and military radars. Meanwhile the number of Turkish soldiers who were deployed during the same period in Idlib and Aleppo exceeded 9,900.
