SYRIA: Edleb turns from de-escalation zone into Turkish military equipment center

EDLEB, Syria — Turkish military personnel and equipment continue to flood into Edleb (Idlib), Syria, heading towards the so-called “de-escalation zone”. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human rights (SOHR), which has monitored reports of Turkish forces crossing the Kafr Losin Border Crossing, approximately 10,000 Turkish military vehicles have entered Edleb.

The “de-escalation zone” was established by Russia and Turkey on 6 March after increased clashes between the Syrian regime and Turkish-backed groups.

The convoys consisted of 35 vehicles, including armored vehicles and trucks carrying logistical materials and ammunition.

In related news, the Al-Fateh al-Mobin Operations Room, which includes Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, announced that it had targeted a Russian military position in the city of Kafr Nabl, south of Edleb, killing two Russian soldiers and a Russian officer.
