MAARET Al-NOMAN: Damascus on Monday condemned the deployment of a Turkish military convoy towards a key town in northwestern Syria where regime forces are waging fierce battles with militants and rebels.

The AFP correspondent saw them on their way to the town of Maaret al-Noman, which lies 15 kilometres north of Khan Sheikhun. Naji Mustafa, a spokesman for the National Liberation Front rebel grouping, told AFP:"The Turkish reinforcements were headed to ... Morek." Some Turkish troops were deployed to patrol the planned buffer zone, but it was never fully implemented as jihadists refused to withdraw from the planned demilitarised cordon.
