The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) deployed on October 26 additional troops in its newly-established positions around the border town of Kobane in northeast Syria.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) released a video and several photos showing the army’s reinforcements, which included battle tanks.
Two days ago, more than 1,300 Syrian service members and 160 vehicles arrived in Kobane. Kurdish sources said that the troops will be stationed around the border town.
The SAA entered Kobane earlier this month following a breakthrough agreement between the Damascus government and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Later, units of the Russian Military Police joined the army inside the town as a part of a Russian-Turkish deal.
The Syrian military and the Russian Military Police will both work to establish observation posts along the border north of Kabane. Patrols will be also conducted within the town, while Kurdish fighters will withdraw.
