Turkey sent on Sunday new military reinforcements to its military forces and allied rebel groups in northern Syria.

That was reported by aranews.net.

The Turkish support comes as its army forces and allied Syrian rebels of the Euphrates Shield Brigades continued their military operations against Islamic State’s (ISIS) militants near the city of al-Bab.

According to Turkish officials, the convoy left Istanbul in the evening on Sunday and headed towards the southern border to enter Syria.

The reinforcement convoy included “10 tanks, 8 armoured vehicles, heavy machine guns and a large deal of ammunition,” the Turkish Army Central Command said.

“The new military reinforcements are aimed at intensifying counter-terrorism efforts on the Syrian-Turkish border,” it said.

Turkey’s military said that eliminating terrorism in northern Syria means securing Turkey’s southern borderline.
