The monitoring center claims that Turkey continues to send more and more troops as reinforcements in northwestern Syria.

"From February 2 to today, SOHR activists tracked the entry into Syria of more than 6,485 trucks and military vehicles, including tanks, personnel, armored vehicles and military radars," the report says.

In addition, it is reported that the number of Turkish soldiers deployed over the same period in Idlib and Aleppo exceeded 10,300.

As we reported before, the Kremlin rejected allegations made by the United Nations that Russia may have committed war crimes in Syria last year.

According to the Russian side, the U.N. investigators are in no position to know what is happening on the ground.
