Some Ninety tanks of the Turkish Army along with a long column of vehicles carrying arms and ammunition have arrived in Northern Syria to take part in an operation to reportedly capture the town of al-Bab in Northern Aleppo, an informed source said Tuesday.

"Ninety tanks of the Turkish army crossed the country's Southern border into Northern Syria in al-Shahba region this morning. The army sent the tanks to the battlefields near the town of al-Bab," Hawar news quoted the source as saying.

"It's not yet clear where the tanks crossed the border into Northern Syria, but the Turkish forces and Ankara-backed terrorists are very overtly preparing to capture al-Bab," Hawar added.

On Thursday, the Turkish army in al-Shahba region equipped the terrorists with heavy weapons, including M60 tanks.

According to Kurdish-affiliated Hawar news, several footage and images have been released by the terrorist groups in different websites which show that they are using the Turkish army's armored vehicles in Tal Jorji village in al-Bab region.

The images showed that the terrorists were using M60 tanks.
Turkey has deployed a large number of its tanks and armored vehicles in Northern Syria after the start of the Euphrates Shield operation by Ankara.

The Turkish forces, backed by US-led coalition aircraft, started the Euphrates Shield military operation in August, claiming that they intend to purge terrorists from Syria's Northern territories and create security zones for accommodation of refugees, FNA reported.
