Turkey Sending Military Equipment to Syria Border
Local Editor

Turkey sent 80 military vehicles including tanks to its southwestern border with Syria, the state-run Anadolu news agency said Sunday.

Citing a military source, the news agency said the deployment was part of reinforcements for troops stationed along the border. The vehicles were sent to the Iskenderun district of the southeastern province of Hatay, Anadolu said.

Late Saturday, the agency also reported that the army had dispatched first aid trucks and military vehicles to the same location, along with heavy equipment.

A third convoy of armored vehicles was heading to Hatay's Reyhanli district, where Turkey's Cilvegozu border gate with Syria is located, Anadolu added.

Turkey's Foreign Ministry said Friday that Russia, Iran and Turkey had agreed to deploy observers around a "de-escalation zone" in northern Syria's Idlib region, which is mostly controlled by militants linked to a former Al-Qaeda affiliate.

It said the observers would look to prevent clashes between forces of the Syrian army and the opposition, and watch for cease-fire violations.

Last month, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Turkey was taking necessary measures along its 150-kilometer border with Idlib.

In other developments Sunday, Syrian troops seized the Jafra district in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor Sunday, tightening the noose around Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri ‘ISIS/ISIL' group], a Syrian military source said.

The district is located on the western bank of the Euphrates River. The army pushed into the city this month with the help of Russian air power and Iran-backed fighters, breaking a Daesh siege of an enclave there that had lasted three years.

"They have no outlet except crossing the Euphrates toward the eastern bank and fleeing toward the desert, or [the towns] Albukamal and Mayadin," the source told Reuters.
