Turkey Redeployed Tanks to Syria
OREANDA-NEWS. The Turkish army transferred military equipment to Syria. Video recordings of transportation were published by the Turkish agency Anadolu.
According to the agency SANA, the command of the Syrian Armed Forces stated that the troops were redeployed “under the shelter of Israeli air aggression.”
According to Anadolu, there were trucks transporting 20 tanks in the convoy. They traveled from the southern Turkish province of Hatay to northwestern Syria. “Tanks were transferred to the area of observation points of the Turkish Armed Forces in Idlib in order to increase their defense potential,” the agency said.
The Syrian military believe that Turkey wants to defend the terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra and prevent the troops of the Arab Republic from attack. “The synchronized efforts of Israel, Turkey and all those who support… terrorism are not able to force the soldiers to abandon their military tasks until the complete liberation of all Syrian land from terrorist groups,” the command of the Syrian Armed Forces claimed.
