State-run Anatolia news agency said armored military vehicles were also being transported to military installations in Sanliurfa, in the middle of Turkey's border with Syria and Hatay, a panhandle province that juts down into Syria.
Anatolia said there were reports the vehicles were to be deployed along the border. It said several military vehicles had travelled separately to a military garrison in the border town of Reyhanli in Hatay, Reuters reports.
The reports come less than a week after Syria shot down a Turkish reconnaissance jet over the Mediterranean prompting a sharp rebuke from Ankara which said the act would not go unpunished.
