BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – A large number of Turkish military personnel have entered the Idlib Governorate this week, as Ankara increases their troop buildup in northwestern Syria.

The report said the Turkish commandos entered the Idlib Governorate with several armored vehicles and logistical equipment that were destined for an observation post in the area.

Over the last few days, the Turkish Armed Forces have been sending in large convoys of reinforcements to different observation posts, while also establish new points in several areas in the Idlib Governorate.

Having reached Idlib in large numbers with hardware they might as well shed their Turki Miliary Uniform & put on the HTS / Turki backed Jihadi Uniform after all both the uniforms are one and the same.
