MAARET AL-NOMAN: A Turkish military convoy crossed into militant-run northwest Syria on Monday , sending tensions soaring between Damascus and rebel-backer Ankara which said its forces were targeted with an air strike.

Following days of inching forward on the ground, Russian-backed regime forces on Sunday took control of the edges of the town of Khan Sheikhun in the south of the stronghold. "Despite repeated warnings we made to the authorities of the Russian Federation, the military operations by the regime forces continue in Idlib region in violation of the existing memorandums and agreements with the Russian Federation," it said in a statement."Turkish vehicles loaded with munitions ... are heading towards Khan Sheikhun to help the terrorists," a foreign ministry source said, using the regime's blanket term for Turkish-backed rebels and militants.
