Two Convoys Of Turkish Battle Tanks, Armoured Vehicles Enter Syria’s Idlib

A Turkish military column is en route to Al-Eis

On December 7, two convoys of the Turkish military entered the northern Syrian governorate of Idlib through the Kafr Lusen border crossing, according to the Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Enab Baladi.

Local sources told Enab Baladi that one of the convoys headed towards the Turkish observation post in the town of Murak in the northern Hama countryside. The other convoy, which included several battle tanks, headed to the observation post in the town of Shir Mughar in the northwestern Hama countryside.

The Turkish military established these two observation posts along with ten others earlier this year as a part of an agreement reached during the Astana talks. Following the recent demilitarized zone agreement, the Turkish military began to reinforce these posts.

While some local observers believe that Turkey is stepping up its military presence in Idlib as a part of the agreement with Russia, others say that Ankara is actually taking advantage of the agreement to expand its influence in northern Syria.

        Who says they are making a mistake? I think the rats have timed it brilliantly and got land on the cheap. The Blood Thirsty Sultan’s ratings will skyrocket with the dumbfornicators back home.

    This is what happens when the SAA attack FSA fighters who aren’t supposed to be attacked according to the new Astana agreement, silly move by the SAA yesterday, now they have the heavy Turkish weapons that were moved out a while ago returning in even larger numbers, not good at all. And Putin can’t really complain since it was the SAA who started it, Erdogan’s got just the excuse he needed from the SAA yesterday. Hopefully someone in the SAA gets his butt kicked.

      FSA don’t exist, only gangs, controled, in Idlib, by an bandit army of al Qaeda.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Yes I know they changed their name again for the 101st time, now they’re the NFL, it was the SFL and whatever it was before that, I can’t be bothered keeping up to the name changes, it’s still the same murderous terrorists whatever name they choose to use.
        Some of the ex FSA have also joined the SDF too you know.
        But if you prefer you can name every single militia that make up the different groups, HTS, NFL, FSA, they all have dozens of militias of varying sizes and strengths, but my memory’s not that good.

    Erdogan wants a bigger piece of Syria. He is not happy with what he has stolen so far. No one will stop him.

    Erdogan has already made a deal with Russia that cedes what is left of Syria to him. In his own mind that is his only move since he fears what will happen if he does nothing and Iran takes it.
