Late on October 24, a large batch of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops arrived in the border town of Kobane in northeast Syria.
According to the Hawar News Agency (ANAH), the batch consisted of at least 1,300 service members and around 160 vehicles.
“This batch will be deployed on the Syrian-Turkish border in Kobane,” the ANAH’s report reads.
The SAA began deploying troops in northeastern Syria earlier this month following a breakthrough agreement between the Damascus government and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The recent agreement between Russia and Turkey supported the SAA deployment in the region, tasking the army with the establishment 15 observation posts along the border with Turkey.
These agreements solidified the SAA status as a stabilizing factor in the northeastern part of the country, that was on the brink of a humanitarian disaster before the army deployment.
