Turkey ready for military operation in Syria's Afrin - media
Turkish troops on the border with Syria entered a state of high alert in the case of a possible operation in Syria's Afrin - such an order was given by the General Staff of the country, Anadolu agency reports.
A convoy of 400 military vehicles including armored vehicles supplied by the U.S. have arrived in the city center and have been deployed in two different parts of the city, locals added.
The first shipment of ammunition was stored in and around the village of Arimah. The second stockpile is located in the Silo village in southern Manbij. The village borders a regime-controlled area with no physical contact to Afrin. The only way to supply ammunition from Manbij to Afrin is to take help from the regime forces.
Yesterday, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said that Turkey is in talks with Russia and the United States over a possible operation against the city of Afrin.
On Tuesday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey will "destroy" all terror nests in Syria, one by one, starting with Afrin and Manbij regions.
