Turkish military deployment to Syria

Nearly 6,700 vehicles and over 10,000 soldiers brought in to “de-escalation zone” since February.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) activists reported seeing a new Turkish military column of tens of vehicles and trucks carrying military and logistical supplies, crossing into the Syrian territory, via Kafr Lusin crossing on Iskenderun border. The vehicles have reportedly headed to Turkish positions in the “de-escalation zone”.

As Turkey keeps sending more military reinforcement to NW Syria, SOHR stated that the number of Turkish military units which entered the “de-escalation zone” since the new ceasefire came into effect has risen to 3,280, in addition to the entry of hundreds of soldiers.

From February 2 to date, SOHR activists monitored the entry of more than 6,690 trucks and military vehicles to the Syrian territory, including tanks, personnel carriers, armored vehicles, mobile bulletproof guard booths and military radars. Meanwhile the number of Turkish soldiers who were deployed during the same period in Idlib and Aleppo exceeded 10,300.
