BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The Turkish Army sent a military convoy to the Syrian border this past weekend as their forces prepare to begin a new operation east of the Euphrates River.
According to local reports, the Turkish military sent reinforcements to the southwestern part of the Mardin Province that borders the Syrian city of Ras Al-‘Ayn.
The convoy reportedly took up positions at the Jilan Biner passageway and consisted of a large number of soldiers and heavy military equipment.
Ras Al-‘Ayn is currently under the control of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and their allies.
The Turkish military has been targeting Ras Al-‘Ayn for nearly two weeks now as they continue their campaign against the YPG and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
