BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – Turkey has established two new military posts in western Aleppo this week amid several setbacks for the jihadist rebels at this front.
According to reports, the Turkish Armed Forces established a military post at Regiment 111 Base and another one at the jihadist stronghold of Darret ‘Izza in western Aleppo.
The Turkish Armed Forces were monitored on Saturday making their way to the western countryside of Aleppo, despite the ongoing advance by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
This latest deployment is meant to increase Turkey’s presence along the western Aleppo front and possibly deter the Syrian Arab Army from pushing further towards the border.
On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army captured two towns in western Aleppo after a short battle with the jihadist rebels.
The Syrian Army specifically captured Kafr Naha and Ma’arat Al-Na’asan following the collapse of the jihadist lines at two separate axes.
