Turkey continues to increase its military presence on the western part of the Syrian border.

The Turkish military has deployed additional armored cars and military personnel near the city of Ogulpinar, which is located near Aleppo.

Turkey claims the move will help stave-off threats towards its territory.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan says his country is ready for a military operation in Syria, and is looking to help the Free Syrian Army.

“We are in constant touch with our friends at the front line,” said Erdogan. “We are receiving continuous information regarding what is happening (on the ground)…We follow the developments step by step and hope it will end well.”

Turkey, Russia, and Iran signed a deal to establish so-called de-escalation zones in Syria previously, one of which would include the city of Idlib.
