Large Turkish military convoy enters Idleb amid Syrian Army buildup

The Turkish military has sent another convoy through the Kafr Lousen crossing that links the Hatay Province with Idlib.

According to opposition reports, the Turkish military sent another large convoy to Idlib, deploying several commandos and their armored vehicles to different parts of this governorate in northwestern Syria.

The arrival of the Turkish military convoy comes at the same time that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues to buildup its forces in the Jabal Al-Zawiya region of Idlib.

Since the Sochi Agreement was put in place on September 17, 2018, the Turkish military has been constructing observation posts in several front-line areas in northwestern Syria.

However, as seen in the Syrian Arab Army’s offensive in southern Idlib offensive earlier this year, they are willing to go around these Turkish observation posts in order to attack the militant forces.

With the Turkish military’s attack on the Syrian Army’s positions in March, it appears that the former is becoming less tolerant of these offensives and could intervene in future conflicts, especially along the Jabal Al-Zawiya region.
