Turkey Reinforces Military Units on Syrian Border

Istanbul (AP) -- Turkish news agencies say the country has increased its military presence along its southern border against threats from Kurdish militants in war-torn northern Syria.
The official Anadolu news agency said Saturday that Turkey dispatched artillery to Kilis province to reinforce units there.
The six-vehicle convoy included tanks and howitzers to be positioned across from the Kurdish-controlled Syrian region of Afrin, according to the private Dogan news agency.
Turkey has been vehemently opposed to the presence of the People`s Protection Units, or YPG, in northern Syria.
The country considers the YPG, a key U.
ally in fighting the Islamic State group in Syria, a terror group and an extension of Kurdish militants operating inside Turkey.
In late April, Turkey relocated military units to Sanliurfa province across from another YPG-controlled area.
