DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:34 A.M.) – A new satellite image shows a US military base on the outskirts of Al-Shadadi town in south Hasakah province following a complete overhaul and expansion of the base.
The base now includes helicopter landing pads with 8 Apachi attacking helicopters present at the time the image was captured in addition to a training ground and an operation room aimed at planning and coordinating future SDF offensives in the region.
The base is located in an area bordering two major oil fields in northeast Syria- Ramilan and Al-Shaddadi Oil Fields.
Those images reinforce the notion that the United States’ presence in the Middle Eastern country is not a passing temporary matter. The world power seems adamant in maintaining a stake in Syria through its Kurdish allies.
