Turkey is proceeding to deliver military equipment to the border with Syria after the Turkish parliament made a decision enabling trans-boundary operations against Syria, the Zaman newspaper reported today.
Military equipment is being delivered to Suruc area, Sanliurfa province. The active-reactive ammunition and large military contingent are being transported to the border.
At least 5 people were killed in Sanl?urfa province on Oct.3, when a mortar exploded in the town center. Syrian side has repeated similar attacks several times.
Last week Turkish parliament approved issuing a mandate for cross-border military operations against Syria in response to the shelling of the Turkish city of Sanl?urfa by the Syrian army.
Ankara states that such measures are taken to prevent further provocations of Syria, and start of an armed conflict is out of the question.
