A heavily-armed US military convoy entered northeastern Syria this week to expand one of their bases inside Hassakeh Governorate.
Military sources told the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that as many as 30 heavily-armed military vehicles, carrying 200 Marines, entered northeastern Syria.
The US military convoy was seen heading to the Istrahat Wazir area, which is where they are currently expanding their base.
The US has been dispatching hundreds of Marines to Hassakeh Governorate to disrupt the Russian military’s operations.
“The US dispatch of hundreds of Marines to Syria is believed to disrupt the Russian military operation in Hassakeh in the context of its active support of Syria’s regional security and the M4 international highway connecting Hassakeh with Aleppo,” the sources said.
