ANKARA, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) -- Turkey has reinforced its military deployment near Syrian border in southeastern province of Kilis, local media reported, for a possible operation against Syrian Kurdish militias in coming days.

According to state-run Anadolu Agency, a new batch of military vehicles, including tanks and howitzers, was transferred by trucks to Kilis on Wednesday. They were deployed near Syrian border.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday warned that Turkey would in a few days launch a military operation in the east of Euphrates in Syria to clear terror groups there, referring to the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) without mentioning its name.

Ankara regards the YPG as Syrian affiliate of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) designated to be a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU.

Earlier this year, Turkey carried out "Operation Olive Branch" to seize control of Syria's Afrin region from the Kurdish militia, while the YPG also controls the Syrian region east of the Euphrates.
