BEIRUT, Oct 12 (Reuters) - A first convoy of the military operation that Turkey is carrying out in Syria's Idlib province crossed into the area late on Thursday, two rebels and a witness said.

The convoy included about 30 military vehicles, said one of the rebels, and it entered Syria near the Bab al-Hawa border crossing, according to the witness. (Reporting By Suleiman al-Khalidi in Amman, writing by Angus McDowall in Beirut; Editing by Toby Chopra)
