while construction works are performed to build a bridge on the Hezil River which is located on the border of Turkey and Federal Region of Kurdistan, special troops were sent from Ankara to the region by airway. On the other hand, experienced guards in Mardin who were given heavy weapons and military equipments were asked to be ready. 

It was asserted that the groundwork is being laid for a military operation on Federal Kurdistan Region. According to information obtained from village-guards in Şırnak, military units have started preparations to build a pontoon bridge on the Hezil River which is located on the border of Turkey and Federal Region of Kurdistan. The reports say that a road is being constructed in the regions where pontoon bridges will be built while the required materials for bridges have already been transferred to the region on 13th March. The bridges which had been built previously on rivers before cross-border operations were used by military units to cross over. 

In addition to the preparations for pontoon bridges, special units have also been sent to the region. A special unit of 200 people from Ankara Gölbaşı Special Team Training School was transferred to Mardin by air and to Silopi by land on 13th March. Reportedly, the special unit has been held at Haç Accommodation Facilities in Silopi for two days. 

In the meantime, it was reported that the village guards who had previously taken part in military operations in Mardin and Şırnak have been distributed heavy weapons and military equipment by soldiers. A village guard disclosing his name expressed that the village guards who were distributed heavy weapons and military equipment were asked to get ready.
