The Syrian Arab Army, as confirmed by military sources, continues to send troops and war matériel to increase and reinforce its presence in the region that constitutes the line of contact with the Turkish forces and local militias allied to them.

The reinforcements include soldiers, tanks and artillery pieces that arrived in the vicinity of the towns of Tal Abyad in the north of the province of Raqa, Tal Tamer and Ras al-Ain in Hasakeh, Tel Rifat and Manbej in the north of Aleppo, on a front that stretches over 200 kilometers.

Russia increased the presence of aviation at the Qamishli airport in the northeast of Syria, and intensified its air patrols along the M-4 highway connecting Hasakeh with Aleppo.

In a related context, the Russian and Syrian forces carried out military rills in areas bordering positions of the Turkish forces, using heavy vehicles under the cover of fighters and helicopters.

As confirmed by analysts, both the maneuvers and the increasing Russian military activity send a deterrent message to Ankara, which aims to take more towns.

In order to avoid a military action that could cause human and material losses, Turkish and Russian officials held a meeting at one of Ankara’s military bases in Tel Rifat.

According to media reports, the handover of cities controlled by the pro-US militia FDS to the Syrian army was discussed during the meeting in order to avoid a military operation.
