Yesterday, the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported that Ankara increased its military presence along the Syria-Turkey border. According to the newspaper, trucks with tanks and howitzers arrived in Kilis province on Saturday.
This reinforcement comes just after U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis held talks with president Erdogan during his official visit to Ankara. The media focused on the fact that the Turksih president expressed his deep concerns about Washington arming the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Front which is fighting ISIS in Syria.
After the meeting, Erdogan noted that Ankara “would invade whatever the price”.
