Syria: 500 rebel fighters enter Azaz coming from Turkish border


According to Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Al-Arabiya, 500 gunmen entered Azaz coming reportedly from Turkey.

He added that these fighters “are Islamists and some of them are non-Islamists, and all of them gunmen,” stressing that their move “was under the supervision of the Turkish authorities,” which has seen Turkish artillery pound Kurdish forces to prevent them from taking over the border city.

Reports indicate Turkey is looking to establish a presence about 10km into Syria, which includes Azaz, and preserves rebel and other groups supply lines.
