Turkey brings in new military reinforcement to positions in the “de-escalation zone”
Syrian Observatory activists have reported seeing tens of Turkish military vehicles crossing into the Syrian territory, via Kafr Lusin border crossing in northern Idlib this afternoon. The vehicles headed to Turkish positions in Idlib province.
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 1,440, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.
From February 2 to date, SOHR activists monitored the entry of more than 4,840 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 9,650.
