Syria, Turkey bring reinforcement to Idlib province

The Syrian and Turkish forces brought in new reinforcements into Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib on Friday, a war monitor reported.

The Turkish side sent 35 military vehicles into Turkish military observation points in Idlib on Friday, bringing the overall number of military vehicles that have entered the region since March 5 to 2,225 vehicles and thousands of soldiers, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The UK-based watchdog group also said the Syrian forces brought reinforcement to frontline areas in Idlib.

Both sides are observing a cease-fire that was brokered by Turkey and Russia on March 5.

Idlib is the last major rebel stronghold in the country and the latest cease-fire was reached after the Turkish and Syrian forces had bouts of fighting in that area.
