Turkey sends more reinforcements to border with Syria’s Idlib

Turkey loaded tanks and armoured vehicles onto trucks and dispatched the convoy to the Turkish province of Hatay on the Syrian border.It was the second day of reinforcements of the Turkish military presence on the border near the northern Syrian province of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in Syria.On Friday, a Turkish security source said the Turkish army had been rotating forces in and out of the region, and declined to say whether the latest movement was in preparation for an operation inside Idlib province itself. U.S. President Donald Trump announced last month that he had decided to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria. The decision injected new uncertainty into the eight-year-long Syrian war and spurred a flurry of contacts over how a resulting security vacuum will be filled across northern and eastern Syria where the U.S. forces are stationed.On the one hand, Turkey aims to pursue a campaign against Kurdish forces that have allied with the United States, and on the other the Russian and Iranian backed Syrian government sees the chance to recover a huge chunk of territory.
