UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
United States continues to send military and logistical reinforcements to its bases in eastern Syria, according to local sources.
The sources said to Anadolu Agency, Monday, that “an American convoy of 140 trucks entered, on Sunday evening, through the (Al-Walid) border crossing with Iraq, and headed to the American bases south of Hasaka province, and the countryside of Deir Ezzor, eastern Syria.”
She explained that “the convoy was carrying armored vehicles (Hummer) and dozens of picas (four vehicles) four-wheel drive, and digging and construction machines, and also included closed trucks believed to be carrying ammunition.”
The United States recently intensified sending reinforcements to its eastern and northeastern bases, most of which are located near Syrian oil fields.
It is noteworthy that the American forces withdrew from a number of their bases in north-eastern Syria, coinciding with the operation “Spring of Peace” launched by the Turkish army in October last year, but they were not calculated from their bases located in the oil fields and its surroundings.
In November last year, the Pentagon announced, in a statement, that more troops and reinforcements would be sent to protect oil wells in eastern Syria.
In previous statements by US President Donald Trump about his country’s bases in Syria, he said: “We will protect oil … and we will decide what to do with it in the future.”
The Russian Defense Ministry, in a previous statement, accused the United States of practicing “banditry” on a global level after declaring its intention to protect oil fields in eastern Syria.
The ministry published pictures via satellite of what it said were convoys of tanks heading out of Syria, saying that these pictures indicate that the operations of extracting Syrian oil were under the protection of the American military before and after defeating ISIS elements east of the Euphrates.
