BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:55 P.M.) – The Turkish Army has re-visited a key Al-Qaeda stronghold near Syrian Arab Army lines in the southern countryside of Aleppo province, this time bringing with it some 50 military vehicles.

Turkish forces have once again arrived in the area of Tal Al-Eis – a stronghold of the Al-Qaeda affiliate group Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) – in southern Aleppo province near Syrian Army lines.

The Turkish Army brought with it a convoy of about fifty military vehicles (based on video evidence shown below), more than half of which appear to be armored designs of various sorts.

Among the convoy can be identified armored scout cars, mine-resistant vehicles (MRAP), armored personnel carriers, special utility vehicles, fuel tankers and military-grade lorries.

Overall, it appears that the Turkish Army has moved a mechanized reconnaissance battalion along with a military policing detachment into the area of Tal Al-Eis – all this being done with the full approval of local Al-Qaeda-linked forces.
