U.S. Prepares To Deploy Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles In Syria’s Deir Ezzor (Photos)

The U.S. military is preparing to deploy infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) in the northeastern Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition revealed on October 31.

Col. Myles B. Caggins III posted several photos on Twitter showing M2A2 Bradley IFVs being loaded into military cargo planes to be sent to Syria.


Earlier this month, an official in the Pentagon told Newsweek that the U.S. is seeking to deploy a half of an U.S. Army armored brigade combat team battalion alongside personnel to key oil fields in northeastern Syria. Newsweek’s report was confirmed by the Pentagon on October 25.

Prior to that, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that U.S. troops are being withdrawn from the region “as safely and quickly as possible.”

Now it looks like Washington is on its way to increase its troops in Syria. This raises serious questions about the initial withdrawal order, which facilitated a Turkish-led attack on the northeastern region of the war-torn country.
