US Establishes New Base Near Key Northeastern Syria Town

The US-led coalition had established a new base near the village of Naqara in the northern countryside of Syria’s al-Hasakah, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on September 3.

Naqara is located more than three kilometers to the southwest of the border town of al-Qamishli, which split between the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces and Syrian government forces.

From the new base, the US-led coalition will be able to keep a close eye on the nearby al-Qamishli Airport, where a sizable Russian force is present. Over the last few years, the Russian military deployed radars, air-defense systems, fighter jets, helicopters and other military equipment in the airport, de-facto turning it into its main base in northeastern Syria.

Naqara base is the US-led coalition’s third base around al-Qamishli. The two other bases are located near the village of Himo, some four kilometers to the northeast of al-Qamishli, and on al-Faris hill, three kilometers to the southwest of the town.

The US-led coalition have been expanding its presence in northeastern Syria by establishing new bases and deploying more equipment, including heavy weapons, since the beginning of the year. Officially, the US claims that it has less than a 1,000 troops in the war-torn country. However, Washington lied about the real number of its troops there in the past.

Damascus and its allies have been growing frustrated with the US-led coalition rapid expansion in northeastern Syria. Attacks on coalition bases in the region surged this year.

Expanding? Let’s remember that they were forced to flee the base in al-Qamishli currently used by the Russians. Now they are trying to do something very stupid, by getting nearer and nearer to a Russian base.

I am still of the opinion, that Syrias and its allies should write “F* you” in dot matrix letters over their bases, using some of Irans and Russias precision rockets.

Russia should either blast those bases off the map or give the Syrians the weapons to do it,and what are the Iranians doing about it,they already proved they have the ability when they blasted Al Asad in Iraq.

Assad Defeated Zionists

Those filthy, treasonous, secessionist YPG-PKK-SDF terrorists will eventually be ethnically cleansed worse than what they did to Armenians. Assad, Turkey and even the FSA will make sure of that. Slava Bashar Hafez al-Assad.

Russia should provide the locals with weapons and explosives to kill enough US forces to send them running. One bad hit and the US will pack up and run.

Why is the U.S. always invading other peoples countries. Especially weaker ones. The U.S. is obsessed with acting tough, especially now that it has fallen so far behind Russia and China in the instruments of peer to peer thermonuclear great gamesmanship. Oddly it seems that the pentagram, make that on, does not seem to have gotten the memo…!!!!!
