45 vehicles cross into Syria since morning | New Turkish military column enters Idlib, heading to bases in Jabal Al-Zawiyah
Syrian Observatory activists have reported seeing a new Turkish military column of more than 25 personnel carriers and vehicles carrying military and logistical supplies crossing into the Syrian territory this evening, via Kafr Lusin border crossing in northern Idlib. The vehicles headed to villages in Jabal Al-Zawiyah in southern Idlib.
SOHR activists had monitored the entry of a new Turkish military column to the “de-escalation zone” in the early hours of Saturday morning, via Kafr Lusin crossing on the border with Iskenderun region in northern Idlib. The column comprised nearly 15 vehicles carrying military and logistical supplies. The column headed towards Turkish posts in the “de-escalation zone”.
Accordingly, the total number of vehicles which crossed into Syria today, heading to the Turkish posts in Idlib province have exceeded 45.
As Turkey keeps sending more military reinforcement to NW Syria, the number of Turkish military units which have entered the “de-escalation zone” since the new ceasefire came into effect has risen to 7,745, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.
From February 2 to date, SOHR activists have monitored the entry of more than 11,080 trucks and military vehicles to the “de-escalation zone”, including tanks, personnel carriers, armoured vehicles, mobile bullet proof guard booths and military radars.
