Turkey has heightened its military drill near the border with Syria, deploying more troops along the border following a day of tank exercises in the area.

The Turkish army on Wednesday staged tank exercises near its border with Syria days after it reinforced its border troops with tanks, missile launchers and armored combat vehicles. 

Some 25 tanks reportedly took part in the exercises in the Nusaybin district of Mardin Province, just two kilometers away from the Syrian border, on Wednesday. 

The Associated Press, meanwhile, said several Turkish tanks were also deployed at Kilis province, which sits along the 910 kilometers of frontier shared between the two neighbors.
