Damascus, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) Ten military convoys of the Turkish army have entered the northern Syrian province of Idlib since the 18th of this month, local activists reported, as quoted by the Al-Watan diary.
About 200 tanks, military vehicles, armored vehicles and trucks carrying logistics matériel entered Syrian territory through the illegal crossing of Kafer Lousin, the media detailed.
It was indicated that the convoys went to the 68 military points and observation posts of the Turkish troops deployed in the Idlib demilitarized zone, in particular those on the M-4 highway that links the cities of Aleppo and Latakia, and in the area of the Mount Azawieh in southern Idlib.
The number of Turkish soldiers deployed in Idlib since last February rose to 12,500 and they are supported by 6,600 trucks and military vehicles, the outlet reported.
Turkey maintains a military presence in parts of the Syrian provinces of Idlib, Aleppo, Raqa and Hasakeh, which is described as an occupation by the Syrian government, which urged the international statement to end Ankara's military presence in Syria.
