As fighting persists in Syria’s Idlib, Turkey increases their presence there by deploying their Special Forces and dispatching rocket launcher batteries to the country’s border. Last Wednesday, the Turkish military said that it “neutralized” 55 Syrian regime troops in the area. Also on Wednesday, Turkey’s President Erdogan said that they were “stepping up” its support for the local armed groups operating in Idlib. President Erdogan also threatened a hint of a possible escalation against the Assad regime by “downing” jets targeting civilians.
