Reconnaissance tour | Turkish military column enter Qastun town in Sahl Al-Ghab
Syrian Observatory activists have monitored today the entry of a Turkish military column to Qastun town in Sahl Al-Ghab in the north-western countryside of Hama, as a part of a reconnaissance tour in the region.
Yesterday, Syrian Observatory activists reported seeing a new Turkish column of 20 vehicles carrying military and logistical supplies crossing into the Syrian territory, via Kafr Lusin border crossing with Iskenderun region in northern Idlib. The vehicles headed to areas in the southern countryside of Idlib.
Turkish troops had been deployed earlier in the afternoon near Bdama town in western Idlib, on the Aleppo-Latakia international highway “M4”, in preparation to be stationed there.
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 7,300, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.
From February 2 to date, SOHR activists monitored the entry of more than 10,635 trucks and military vehicles to the “de-escalation zone”, including tanks, personnel carriers, armored vehicles, mobile bulletproof guard booths and military radars.
