On March 24, a convoy loaded with supplied for the US-led coalition entered northeastern Syria coming from the Iraqi Kurdistan region, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency.

“This afternoon, American occupation forces brought a convoy of 80 vehicles, including trucks, carriers, refrigerators and tankers, through the illegal al-Walid crossing.” The state-run agency quoted local sources as saying. “The convoy was accompanied by a number of vehicles carrying gunmen of the SDF [Syrian Democratic Forces] militia.”

Mohammad Hassan a local journalist in northeastern Syria revealed that the convoy was carrying a number of Humvee armored vehicles.

The US-led coalition has been reinforcing its troops in northeastern Syria for a a few months now. Earlier this month, the coalition deployed missile launchers, supposedly short-range air-defense systems, at one of its main bases in al-Hasakah.

The coalition also built a new airfield in the al-Omar oil fields. Now, a large base is being established on Syria’s border with Iraq and Turkey.

In a recent statement, the US-led coalition denied deploying more troops or building new bases in northeastern Syria. However, the recent developments suggest that this statement was misleading.
