Turkish military deployment to Syria continues

The Turkish state continues its military activities in various parts of Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported a new Turkish military column of over 20 personnel carriers, vehicles and trucks carrying logistical supplies, cement blocks and ammunition crossing into the Syrian territory, via Kafr Lusin crossing on the border with Iskenderun region in northern Idlib. The vehicles headed to the Turkish posts in the “de-escalation zone”.

As Turkey keeps sending more military reinforcement to North-West Syria, the number of Turkish military units which have entered the “de-escalation zone” since the new ceasefire came into effect has risen to 8,315, in addition to the entry of nearly 10,000 Turkish soldiers, according to the observatory statics.

From February 2 to date, SOHR reported the entry of more than 11,815 trucks and military vehicles to the “de-escalation zone”, including tanks, personnel carriers, armoured vehicles, mobile bullet proof guard booths and military radars.
