BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 A.M.) – A large Turkish Army convoy has crossed into Syria via the Hatay Province, local opposition activists reported tonight.

The convoy reportedly entered Syria’s Idlib Governorate and consisted of more than 80 Turkish Army soldiers and a dozen armored vehicles.

No further details have been reported.

This move by the Turkish Army comes just days after Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced that the Ankara-backed Euphrates Shield Forces were preparing an operation to expel the Al-Qaeda linked Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham terror group from the Idlib Governorate.

Let’s hope Turkey is truly doing this in a sincere state of repentance and there are no any Israhelli mossad generals among the Turkish military men.
