New Turkish military reinforcements enter the “de-escalation” zone
The Turkish forces entered new military reinforcements towards their points deployed in the “de-escalation” zone northwestern Syria.
SDC local sources said that a military column includes about 12 armored and military vehicles entered the Syrian territories at night through “Kafr Lusin” crossing in Idlib northern countryside, and headed towards the Turkish bases.
These moves came days after the Turkish Defense Minister, Hulusi Akar, visited the Turkish military bases deployed at the borders with Syria, and spoke about the successes achieved by the Turkish forces in their operations inside Syria and Iraq over the past year, adding that they would continue these so called “successes” during this year.
The Turkish forces continue to enter reinforcements towards their bases in the “de-escalation” zone to support the armed factions deployed there mainly “Al-Nusra Front”, a terrorist_classified organization on the lists of the UN Security Council. The Turkish forces had previously supported the militants in the battles against the Syrian army early last year, but it did not succeed in stopping the army’s advance and many of its observation points were besieged by the Syrian army.
The Turkish forces have recently withdrawn their members and vehicles from the besieged observation points northern Syria. They evacuated many points in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama in preparation for withdrawing all the besieged points, that are useless now, and moving their forces towards Idlib countryside.
