BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was seen making their way towards the border city of Al-Malkiyah in the Al-Hasakah Governorate this week.
According to the Raqqa News Network, the Syrian Arab Army troops in the large city of Qamishli (northern Al-Hasakah) made their way to the Rmelan-Malkiyah area along the Iraqi border.
As shown in the video below, the Syrian Army sent a large military convoy to the Malkiyah border area.
This latest move by the Syrian Arab Army marks the first time since 2012 that they will enter this border region in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
The Syrian Arab Army will likely refrain from taking control of the border crossing into Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate until the U.S. military fully withdraws from their post in this area.
