"Twenty tanks, stationed in the western provinces of Turkey, were transferred by rail to Gaziantep in the south of the country, from where they were escorted to the Syrian border by police and gendarmerie," the agency writes.
It is also reported on the conduct of the largest recent operation to patrol the border. It simultaneously involved X-NUMX F-18 fighters.
“Information about which specific sections of the border were monitored was not provided by the military,” the newspaper notes.
Recall, on Wednesday, President Erdogan said: “Turkey has always advocated peace, dialogue, diplomatic settlement, and after that we will continue to do the same. But let no one expect us to remain deaf and blind to violating our space, our borders, our sovereignty. We have no thoughts to inflate this incident (with Su-24), we only protect our security and the rights of our (Turkmen) brothers. ”
