BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – A massive U.S. Coalition convoy entered eastern Syria this week from neighboring Iraq, local activists reported from the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
According to the reports, the U.S. Coalition convoy consisted of approximately 200 trucks, which were carrying logistical and military supplies, along with reinforcements.
The large U.S. convoy was said to have entered eastern Syria on Monday through the illegal Waleed Crossing, which links Iraq’s Nineveh Governorate with Al-Hasakah.
Following its entry into eastern Syria, the U.S. Coalition convoy traveled to the Al-Qamishli District in northern Al-Hasakah and to eastern Deir Ezzor.
The U.S. convoy’s entry into Syria comes at a time when both the Russian and American forces continue to build up their troops and expand their bases in the eastern part of the Arab Republic.
The U.S. and Russian forces have been involved in some standoffs in eastern Syria over the past few weeks, with both troops aggressively attempting to intercept the other in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
