The convoy was being sent to reinforce a Turkish military presence on the border near the northern Syrian province of Idlib, the last major militant stronghold in the Arab country, state-owned Anadolu news agency said on Friday.

The convoy had reached Hatay’s Yayladagi region, from which it moved toward the units on the border, the report said.

A Turkish security source said the Turkish army had been rotating forces in and out of the region, and declined to say whether the latest movement was in preparation for an operation inside Idlib province itself.
