Istanbul – Turkey has sent a convoy of commando units and armoured vehicles to the Turkish province of Hatay on the Syrian border, state-owned Anadolu News Agency reported on Friday.
The convoy was sent to reinforce Turkish military presence on the border near the northern Syrian province of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in Syria, Anadolu said.
The convoy had reached Hatay’s Yayladagi region; and then proceeded to the units on the border, the agency said.
A Turkish security source said the Turkish army had been rotating forces in and out of the region.
The source, however, declined to say whether the latest movement was in preparation for an operation inside Idlib province itself. (Reuters/NAN)
