Turkish forces clash with Al Qaeda-linked rebels on border

"Now this step has been taken, and it is underway".

Reports suggest a large military deployment on Turkey's southern border and residents near the Bab al-Hawa crossing told Reuters that a section of frontier wall had been removed.

It is not clear what role the Turkish military will play in the operation.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes on the market in Idlib province's Maaret al-Numan were probably carried out by regime forces.

Turkish-backed rebels are deploying to Idlib province to fight an alliance led by the former Nusra Front, Turkish President Erdogan has said.

Many Syrians had fled to Idlib from the neighbouring Aleppo province, which was rocked by heavy fighting a year ago, and Turkey meant to support them, Erdoğan said.
