Turkey installs camp near the Syrian border

Turkey has established a camp for suspicious “refugees” near the Syrian border with the province of Raqqa (north) in order to house terrorists, train them and infiltrate them into the neighbouring Syrian nation, an official source has reported.

Attempts by armed groups to occupy the Syrian city have failed.

They created a rearguard for the armed terrorist groups, including the installation of a hospital, where 100 Turkish health professionals labour, and which will serve patients from three districts in which the structure was divided, says a report by the Syrian news agency, SANA.

There are currently few refugees in place, yet it is estimated that the centre will serve as protection for mercenaries and armed terrorists who would return there after performing actions on Syrian territory, indicates the source.

On the other hand, Syrian troops foiled an attempted infiltration of armed groups from Jordan into the village of Tal Shihab, located in the province of Daraa, more than 100 kilometres south of Damascus.

During the confrontation, attackers lost several men and others were wounded before returning to their starting point.

Several attempts at infiltration by armed groups from Lebanon into villages in the area of Tal Kalakh, the central province of Homs, were aborted causing them significant casualties.

These attempts were accompanied by intense gun battles and bombings by terrorists, officials said.
