Turkey con­ducts mil­i­tary ex­er­cise in north­ern Syria:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

Turk­ish troops and tanks car­ried out mil­i­tary ex­er­cises on the bor­der with Syria, state-run me­dia re­ported, while a mon­i­tor­ing group said a Turk­ish con­voy had crossed into north­ern Syria. It was the sec­ond day that Turkey sent mil­i­tary re­in­force­ments to the bor­der near the north­west­ern prov­ince of Idlib, the last ma­jor rebel strong­hold in Syria. Mean­while, ar­tillery shelling by Syr­ian gov­ern­ment forces pounded parts of Idlib, thwart­ing an in­fil­tra­tion at­tempt by mil­i­tants. Ten­sions are ris­ing in the re­gion af­ter vic­to­ries by alQaeda-linked mil­i­tants against Turkey-backed op­po­si­tion fight­ers.
