UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United States intends to send Abrams tanks to protect oil fields in eastern Syria, the newspaper writes Newsweek, citing a senior Pentagon official.
According to the source, after the approval of the White House, Washington is likely to send half the battalion of the US tank brigade (there are 90 tanks in the US tank brigade, the brigade consists of three battalions), that is, 15 Abrams tanks, and personnel to the east of Syria.
Also, according to the source, the Arab-Kurdish units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will continue to participate in ensuring the safety of these oil fields.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump announced that a small number of US troops will remain in the oil regions of Syria. A senior source in the US administration said why the US military remains in Syria.
Recall that on Tuesday, Russian and Turkish presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to resolve the situation in northern Syria without bloodshed, despite the expiration of the agreements between Turkey and the United States on Syria. Following the talks, the operation of the Turkish troops in Syria was suspended , however, as Ankara emphasized, “it is not completed.”
