AMMONNEWS - A Turkish military convoy including anti-aircraft missiles left a base near the Syrian border on Thursday and headed for a Turkish province housing a large camp for Syrian refugees, local agencies said.

Video from the DHA agency showed the convoy, of about 12 trucks and transporters, filing through the gates of the base past the hanging Turkish red flag emblazoned with white crescent moon and star.

The Dogan agency said the convoy, from the 5th Mechanized Armored Brigade, headed for Kilis province, site of a large container refugee camp. Traffic was closed on some roads to allow the convoy through.
