BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Russian military deployed more reinforcements to its base at the Al-Qamishli Airport in northern Al-Hasakah on Monday evening, a source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Russian reinforcements were redeployed from the ‘Ayn ‘Issa countryside in Al-Raqqa to the Al-Qamishli Airport this week after the U.S. military sent a large convoy from Iraq to Al-Hasakah on Monday.

The source said the Russian reinforcements consisted of two dozen armored vehicles used by their military police and a large number of personnel.

He would add that the Russian convoy ran into a U.S. military patrol near the town of Tal Tamr in western Al-Hasakah, but for the latter did not prevent them from continuing towards their destination.

In the past few months, the U.S. and Russian armed forces have both blocked one another from accessing roads under their control; this has caused some friction between the two forces, which has resulted in vehicles crashing and going off road.

While the Russians conduct patrols in Al-Hasakah under their agreement with their Turkish counterparts, the U.S., who has no agreement with the Russians, continues to utilize the roadways to transport supplies and oil in the northern part of the country.

US sends large convoy, Russia send large convoy, Turki sends large convoy, SAA send large convoy. Kurds send a large convoy, Turki backed Jihadis & HTS send their large convoy, Daesh send their last remaining large convoy. Hope I haven’t left out any one.

Lets all grab lots of pop corn & cola & a drink and lets wait & see end of the day nothing happens.

Pass the pop corn, we may just be looking at a full press on clearing all combatants from Syria, covering Turkey from Crimea and keeping NATO on the sidelines from the Med not to mention the Black Sea, Kaliber. Don’t look now but there are subs in those waters as well and then there are the Iranians replying to any strikes on any Iranian interest or asset.
