BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:35 P.M.) – A Turkish military convoy was seen making its way to the country’s border with Syria on Saturday. Footage captured the convoy in the Kilis area of southern Turkey.

The convoy included tanks alongside other military vehicles.

Turkey has placed missile systems that are reportedly pointed towards Afrin in Syria along the Turkish border.

On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan talked about impending military operations in Syria’s Afrin and Manbij regions, stating that the Turkish armed forces are prepared to “sort this matter” and that the campaign could start “at any minute.”

Erdogan announced that Turkey’s bid to remove Kurdish fighters from Afrin was “actively” underway on Saturday.
