TEHRAN, Tens of military trucks carrying logistics and military supports of the US-led coalition have been dispatched to areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Eastern Syria, media reports said.

The Baladi news website affiliated to the militants reported that the US-led coalition forces sent heavy trucks via Simalka crossing to areas under the SDF control in Hasaka province in Eastern Syria.

Meantime, Smart News reported that a convoy comprising 80 oil tankers, vehicles and covered trucks have been sent to al-Malekieh region in Hasaka province and towards the US-led coalition forces' military base in Tal al-Bidar region in the Northern part of Hasaka province.
