Turkey on Sunday sent military reinforcements to its border with Syria via the southeastern province of Mardin, the Anatolia news agency reported.
Anatolia said the military deployed ground-to-air missiles to military barracks in the Nusaybin district, along the border with Syria, via a train that was loaded from a station in Mardin.
Tensions between Turkey and Syria hit a new low last month when the latter downed a Turkish jet in international airspace. Turkey earlier announced that it would no longer tolerate security threats from Syria along its border, further escalating tensions.
