A Sputnik correspondent in Jarabulus reported that the Turkish tanks and armored vehicles were sent from the village of Soylu in southern Turkey, and arrived at Jarabulus via the border checkpoint at Karkamis.
The correspondent also reported that Turkish fighter jets have been carrying out airstrikes on Daesh positions in the region.
With Turkish support, the opposition Free Syrian Army (FSA) has reportedly liberated some villages surrounding Jarabulus from Daesh terrorists.
The operation also aims to contain the expansion of US-backed Kurdish militia in northern Syria, following the success of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in liberating Manbij from Daesh terrorists earlier this month.
Two days before the "Euphrates Shield" operation in northern Syria began, Ankara had started shelling Daesh positions in northern Syria close to Jarabulus, as well as shelling positions of the Kurdish YPG.
Jarabulus has been in the hands of Syrian opposition groups since 2012, and the Daesh terrorist group took control of the city in 2013.
"We did it [the Jarabulus operation] to secure our frontiers, to prevent casualties and property damage because of missiles, etc. On the other hand, we undertook the operation to remove [Daesh] from the region and not to let PYD-YPG fill the vacuum."
"When [Daesh] was ousted from there, they moved north to Jarablus and began attacking us from there. Behind them, PYD-YPG elements also arrived, and a threat emerged to our borders in a real sense. Therefore, we decided to undertake the military operation," the Prime Minister explained, al-Monitor reported.
