A large US military convoy reportedly left the Syrian town of Ayn Issa in the northern countryside of Al-Raqqa on Friday. 

According to reports, the US military convoy made its way to the Iraqi border, where they were later mentioned to have deployed to a nearby base. 

This move by the US military comes just days after the Turkish President vowed to launch a large scale operation east of The Euphrates River. 

The US has warned Turkey about conducting such an operation in northern Syria; however, Ankara has expressed discontent with Washington’s demands.

Turkey has called on the US to withdraw their forces from northern Syria in order to allow them to implement a large safe zone that would cover most of the areas controlled by the Syrian Kurds. 

The Syrian Kurds are well aware of Ankara’s desire to launch this offensive, but they have maintained their focus on defeating the remaining Islamic State terrorists in eastern Deir Ezzor. 

As long as the Islamic State maintains their sleeper cells across the country, they will ultimately re-emerge once the Turkish military and their allies push into the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley.
