DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:20 P.M.) – Syrian state TV published a report made by the correspondent at Syrian-Iraqi border where Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and allies continue fortifying their defensive positions they established earlier last week.

Remarkably, Russian T-90 tanks are also present at the frontline along with other heavy equipment pieces:

Syrian Army and allied forces reached the Iraqi border on June 9, having made a shocking manoeuvre which came as a complete surprise for both pro-government and opposition media outlets, as well as for the mainstream media.

On Sunday, some opposition activists claimed that SAA was forced to withrdaw from the border “under U.S. pressure”.

However, the reportage by Syrian state TV proved the opposite.

I still wonder why the SAA uses tents in a combat zone , especially when the US air force is a great danger. Surely digging a slit trench with overhead cover is more sensible?
