Turkey sends more reinforcements to ‘control territory’ in Idlib
Istanbul (dpa) – Turkey is boosting its reinforcements to its military observation posts in Idlib province in north-western Syria to control the area, Defence Minister Hulusi Akar says.
“We are sending additional troops to implement and ensure the ceasefire,” state news agency Anadolu quoted Akar as saying on the sidelines of a NATO meeting in Brussels.
“All precautions will be undertaken, force will be used against all those who are not implementing the ceasefire, including radicals,” Akar said, accusing the Syrian government of intensifying its attacks.
Turkish commando units have been deployed to posts in Idlib and rocket launchers placed along the border, Anadolu reports.
