Turkey Setting Up Second Military Base in Syria - Reports

Turkey has set up a military base in Akhtarin in the province of Aleppo, according to local media activists. The Turkish army, Special Forces and intelligence agencies are expanding their presence in northern Syria amid ongoing clashes between pro-Turkey militant groups and the SDF over the possibility to seize from ISIS the key town of al-Bab.

On November 21, Kurdish forces attacked pro-Turkey militant groups in Sheikh Nasir and seized the village. Earlier this year, reports appeared that the Turkish Armed Forces set up a military base south of al-Rai.
