Turkey is deploying troops along its border with Syria, one week after Syria shot down a Turkish jet over the Mediterranean.
Turkey's TRT state television showed footage of columns of military vehicles moving from bases in Iskenderun and Diyarbakir to the border, close to the area where the jet came down, according to BBC News.
The convoy includes rocket launchers on transporters, anti-aircraft artillery and military ambulances, leading Turkish newspaper Hürriyet reports.
Meanwhile, Syrian state TV is reporting an explosion in central Damascus near the Palace of Justice, Al Jazeera reports, though the nature of the blast is yet to be determined.
