The US military set up two more bases in Syria’s Raqqa province near the border with Turkey as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) dispatched military convoys to the region to confront an impending invasion of the Turkish Army.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the US military bases have been built in the surroundings of Tal Abyad in northern Raqqa.
The SOHR noted that the US military bases have been set up in Tal Rakbeh and al-Jeib regions in the surrounding areas of Tal Abyad.
The source recalled that the US has established three military bases in Raqqa province over the past 20 days.
The field sources in the meantime said that the SDF has dispatched military convoys comprising hundreds of its fighters together with heavy military hardware, including tanks and artillery units to Tal Abyad.

The Turkish army has also dispatched a new military convoy to the city of Jilianbiner near the border with Ras al-Ain in Northwestern Hasaka.

I think this is great news that the U.S. is building 2 new military bases on the Turkish border in Syria. We have to protect the kurds from the Turks. We have to warn them that if you still the kurds we will annihilate your forces. What the Turks want is genocide of the kurds like they did to the Armenians.

The observation posts are to prevent Turkey to attack Syria. Assad might be comfortable with turkish troops in Syria, but they will never leave, like in Hatay 1938. Better not to have them to enter Syria at all.

Are these the US observation posts? If so, well done US.
