Turkish military in NW Syria | Turkey keeps sending reinforcement to “de-escalation zone”

Syrian Observatory activists have reported seeing a new Turkish military column of nearly 40 vehicles crossing into the Syrian territory, via Kafr Lusin crossing on Iskenderun border. The vehicles headed to Turkish positions in 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 4,085, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.


From February 2 to date, SOHR activists monitored the entry of more than 7,420 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 11,000.
