BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Turkish military has reportedly sent more reinforcements to the Idlib Governorate this week, the Reuters News Agency reported on Wednesday.
Citing local opposition sources, the Reuters report claims that more Turkish troops have entered the Idlib province in preparation for the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) upcoming offensive in the region.
Over the weekend, the Turkish military sent a large convoy of troops and tanks from the Hatay Province through the Kafr Losen Crossing in Idlib.
It appears that the Turkish military is not planning to abandon the rebel forces in Idlib, despite their alliance with the Russian forces.
However, it is not likely that the Syrian Arab Army will be launching this offensive in the coming days, as they have pulled back many of their units from the front-lines.
The reason for the Syrian Army pulling their units is because they are awaiting the conclusion of the Russian-Turkish peace talks.
