Turkey deploys troops to Syrian border

From Dubwise youtube channel:
Turkey has sent troop reinforcement to the Syrian border, after Erdogan’s warning that soldiers approaching the border will be treated as target, the Turkish daily Zaman reported citing the Cihan news agency.

It said 15 military vehicles, including tanks and cannons, were dispatched to the border from Diyarbakir.

Meanwhile, activists in the outskirts of Aleppo say that 280 soldiers defected today in Idlib near the main highway leading to Aleppo, al-Jazeera reports.

There is no independent confirmation but if the report is correct it would be one of the largest mass defections so far.

According to the activists cited by al-Jazeera, there were clashes between the defectors and the Syrian army. One helicopter was allegedly shot down and six tanks destroyed.
