BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – Turkey has sent a large military convoy to the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate, opposition activists in nearby Idlib reported via social media on Friday.
According to the reports, the Turkish military convoy consisted of several trucks and heavily armored vehicles.
The Turkish military convoy reportedly made their way to the observation posts in the northern Hama towns of Morek and Sheir Magher.
This move by the Turkish military comes just days after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent a large convoy of reinforcements to the front-lines in the Idlib, Latakia, and Hama provinces.
In particular, the Syrian Arab Army sent the entire 5th Legion to the Idlib-Hama axis, while also deploying several units from the 4th Armored Division, including their elite 42nd Brigade (Ghiath Forces), to northeastern countryside of Latakia.
The Syrian Arab Army is preparing for a new operation near the strategic Abu Dhuhour Airport; this will be their first offensive in southeast Idlib since 2017.
