DAMASCUS, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- As many as 2,700 Turkish military vehicles have been sent into Syria over the past 19 days, as part of the Turkish tactic to send military equipment in Idlib province in northwestern Syria and the northern province of Aleppo, a war monitor reported Saturday.

A Turkish convoy of 80 vehicles entered Idlib on Saturday alone, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Additionally, over 7,400 Turkish soldiers have been deployed in Idlib and Aleppo in the same period, said the Observatory.

The deployment of Turkish soldiers and vehicles comes as part of the Turkish plan to bring to a halt the progress of the Syrian army in the countryside of Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in Syria.
