Adding to Chaos: Turkish Army Sends More Troops to Northwestern Syria

Turkish Army Sends More Troops to Northwestern Syria
The Turkish Army dispatched a long convoy of military vehicles to the Northwestern province of Idlib, field reports said on Wednesday.

The sources said that the Turkish Army convoy reportedly entered Syria’s Idlib province via Hatay Province, adding that the convoy included several armored vehicles and military personnel.

They added that the Turkish military convoy further headed towards the Southwestern territories of Aleppo, where they deployed in an area close to the Afrin Canton.

The Afrin Canton is controlled by the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

An Arab media outlet reported on Friday that the Turkish Army started entering Northern Lattakia to carry out reconnaissance operations after they ignored the Astana agreement over de-escalation zone in Idlib by dispatching more troops.

  • The Arabic-language al-Watan daily reported that border regions with Turkey in Western Idlib and Northern Lattakia witnessed military movements by the Ankara forces.

In the meantime, dissident-affiliated websites disclosed that the Turkish army was carrying out reconnaissance operations from Bedama region in Jisr al-Shughour in Southwestern Idlib up to the border regions in Northern Lattakia that were under terrorists' control.

Also, social media activists reported that the Turkish forces deployed in front of Khirbet al-Joz passageway in Western Idlib, preparing to enter the border region.

  1. Turkish Delegation's Visit to Idlib Reveals Ties with Al-Nusra Front...

    A delegation of Turkish authorities arrived in Idlib and visited several districts of the terrorist-held city.
    The Arabic-language al-Hadath news website reported on Thursday that Governor of Hatay province Salib Mohammed Erish along with a number of other Turkish officials have traveled to Idlib city in Syria, visiting several districts.

    Observers believe that their trip to al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) main stronghold in Syria, Idlib, is suspicious, specially when Ankara, as one of the peace guarantors in Astana talks, has stressed the need for fighting the al-Nusra in Idlib under the agreement to create de-escalation zones in Syria.

    They also said that the visit not only shows close ties between Ankara and al-Nusra but also indicates that Turkey doesn’t intend to drive the terrorist group out of Idlib province.
