BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – For the second time this year, the Turkish state-owned media has revealed the locations of the French military bases in Syria

“In four of nine military locations the French are protected by Americans, and in the rest, they operate under the protection of PKK,” the Anadolu Agency said.

The article highlighted the French bases that were mostly located in Syria’s northeastern region, including the border governorate of Al-Hasakah.

According to an article from state-owned Anadolu Agency, a total of 200 French soldiers that are located in the Coalition areas are mostly reliant on the U.S. troops for logistical support.

Previously, the Anadolu Agency released the locations of the French bases in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

These bases in Deir Ezzor were mostly controlled by the U.S. military, but they allowed for the French Army to use these installations in the battle against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

Anyone who’s interested knows exactly where the French, and other coalition forces, are.
