The vehicles were sent from Ankara and Çankırı by railway. They will be deployed under the so-called “Peace Force” of the 28th Mechanized Infantry Command on the Iraqi-Turksih border, about 150 km north of the Iraqi city of Tal Afar (mostly populated by Turkmens that Ankara sees a tool of influence in Iraq).
