BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent a large military convoy to the southern countryside of the Manbij on Saturday, a source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army’s convoy arrived in the town of Ta Aswad earlier today, as they prepare for the upcoming Turkish military operation.

The Syrian Army’s convoy reportedly consisted of hundreds of soldiers and tens of tanks and armored vehicles, the source added.

This move by the Syrian Arab Army comes just three-days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he was withdrawing his country’s troops from Syria.

While they have yet to receive approval from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to jointly control their territories in northern Syria, the Syrian Arab Army has taken precautionary moves to protect their lands from the Turkish military.

Well done President Assad and SAA. Hope this will prevent the Sultan’s unjustified land grab attack. But I doubt it will prevent him from trying..

What would be funny would be seeing Typhoons and Rafales doing air support, hammering Erdogan’s proxies = al-Qaeda…

@Daeshbags-Sux, doubtful, since Syria is no ally of ours currently. But Syria has SS 300+ now… And Turkey will introduce their SS 400 next year. Good willing, blink.

Syria can probably interdict Turkish air support while doing it with outdated Soviet vintage planes.
