Video - Russian TV crew films 'Neo Ottoman conqueror' Turkish fortifications, tanks on Syrian border. (RT).
A Russian TV crew has managed to obtain video proof of Turkey’s increased military presence on the Syrian border, as it filmed fortifications and tanks on the frontier.
The lodgments are heavily fortified by tanks and self-propelled guns, REN-TV crew reported from the scene.
Shells and other ammunition are being delivered to the Turkish positions, which are shelling Kurdish forces in Syrian territory, according to the report.
“The barrels of the tanks and self-propelled guns are pointed in the direction of the mainly Kurdish Syrian city of Kobane,” the journalist said.
There were at least six or seven tanks in the area and the Turkish forces on the border can be deployed in Syria “in an instant,” according to REN-TV.
Meanwhile, the area appeared to be very active, as Turkey continued to transport various supplies to the border.
The REN-TV journalists spoke to the mostly Kurdish locals, who openly accused Turkey of being “friends” with the Islamic State fighters that had earlier raided nearby houses. The extremist fighters took the most expensive things from the homes, including “money and jewelry,” they said.
The residents also provided evidence proving that various military crimes had taken place and described how Turkey and Islamic State forces had opened fire on locals trying to flee the area – and then stolen their cars. Hmmm......It seems like 'sometimes NATO Ally' Turkey has no intention of respecting the UN Brokered peace plan.Read the full story here.
