BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The U.S. has sent 250 armored vehicles to the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern Syria recently, an SDF source told Sputnik News on Monday.

“There are three U.S. military bases in the region, where the Americans are strengthening their presence. Over the last four days, the United States has sent us 250 trucks with Hummer armored vehicles, heavy weapons, and pick-ups, as part of the operation against Daesh, which we continue to wage in eastern Deir ez-Zor,” the SDF source told Sputnik.

The SDF source further explained the supply route the U.S. took in order to secure the delivery of these 250 armored vehicles this past weekend.

“The U.S. ammunition and armored vehicles are delivered overland from the territory of northern Iraq through the Semelka border control post, and from there to the east of Deir ez-Zor,” he added.

With a large Islamic State (ISIS) presence still active in eastern Syria, the U.S. Coalition has increased its support to the SDF and their Iraqi partners across the border.

This will likely backfire on the US as Erdogan will see the supply of US equipment for what it is, direct support of what in Turkey’s opinion are Terrorist Gangs.

A clash between Turkey and other NATO warmongers is very likely.

Popcorn anyone 🙂

It remains to be seen whether Erdogan will be president of Turkey in a few months and if he is, one can just hope the justice of God will strike him.

US is doing well by its allied SDF, at least in this instance.

When people are dying for your aims, the least you can do is support them, right?

Next should be hundreds of anti tank anti air missiles to be used against anyone attacking the region with tanks or planes.
