Turkey deployed ammunition and armored personnel carriers along the Turkish-Syrian border on Thursday as the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) continued to advance in the Syrian town of Jarablus.
Seven containers loaded with ammunition and two BMC Kirpi mine-resistant armored personnel carriers from the Seventh Armored Brigade Command Center in Diyarbakır province were dispatched to the Elbeyli district in Kilis province on the Turkish-Syrian border.
Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield, which is aimed at improving security, supporting coalition forces and eliminating the terror threat along Turkey's border through FSA fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery and jets.
Sources said that the deployment is a sign that the Operation Euphrates Shield will be expanded as Turkish authorities repeatedly said the operations would continue until the terrorism threat in the region was completely eliminated.
