BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:59 P.M.) – A commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has claimed that the US-led air force will used Tabqa airbase in Raqqa province in Syria’s north.

“Coalition planes will use Tabqa instead of Incirlik,” SDF commander Nasser Haj Mansour said according to Sputnik Turkey.

Incirlik airbase in Turkey has become synonymous with NATO as it was a key base for the military alliance to use and potentially use, particularly during the Cold War.

Any use of a military instalment by the US would be against international law as it is without the permission of Damascus.

Meanwhile, the SDF have released drone footage on Monday that shows Tabqa Airport fully under its control.

New leader, new government.

Remember that it was Obama’s government that was crying “Assad must go”

Trump’s government, however, has not said much about Assad. only that the Daeshbags and the other islamists must be wiped out.

Not many see Assads and fathers as any kind of negosiator. More like a gun at your head and if You dont do this and that, we will do this and that. Therefore almost any replacement and a new face and other type of person, could make an opening for some solutions. Make sense to me. In many parts of the world, there are other solutions then dictators being killed or die by age. Goverments resign if they might not have the trust od the people. Presidents as well. Sometimes they wont and the parlament do it. The purpose for… Read more »

First : “Never trust an American with a gun” said an old punk song 😀
Now, who says they haven’t the permission? But publicly acknowledging so would ruin IRGC+Hezbo help.

El ejercito Sirio tiene que avanzar de manera apresurado para llegar a Al-Tabqa para que no ocurra lo que están planeando o en todo caso buscar acercamiento para negociar, es cierto que tiene que pedir permiso al gobierno Sirio pero considero buscar diplomacia sobre todo con SDF, si se establece la base al servicio de EE.UU. sin autorización sin duda saldrá ganando Erdogan y mismo EE.UU.

Well, according to the fact they all “practised” their skills at using the VERY uncommon anti-runways bombs, they will have great fun as, being crippled like this with the under-runway explosions, let’s be clear : they’d simply have to bulldozer nonetheless the runway, the tarmac, etc etc, then build everything as new!!! Ouch, it’s gonna cost big league, thus, when the war will be over, SyAAF will have a brand new airbase…

Beware of Hasbara 2.0. Daeshbag is an Israeli and Zionist sympathizer.
