Must read

A 12-vehicle military convoy, including armored vehicles carrying commando units, arrived in Şanlıurfa’s Ceylanpınar district as part of Turkey’s recent military reinforcements along the border with Syria, the Hürriyet Daily News reported.    

Turkey’s leaders have said it might launch its third military offensive in Syria since 2016, following two others targeting Kurdish militia.

The convoy entered the 1st Division Border Company Command accompanied by gendarmerie forces.

Turkey considers the Kurdish Peoples’ Protection Units (YPG) to be the Syrian offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorist group.
