US Sends Scores of Trucks Carrying Military Equipment to Kurdish Areas in Hasaka

TEHRAN The US Army has forwarded tens of trucks containing logistical aid and military equipment to the Syrian province of Hasaka as Turkey is preparing for massive military operation against Washington-backed Kurdish militias in Northeastern Syria.

The pro-militant Smart news website reported that a new US military convoy has crossed into Syria's Hasaka province from Iraq via Simalka crossing.

It noted that the US convoy, comprising 100 trucks carrying military vehicles and fuel as well as a number of covered trucks, has arrived at the US military base in Tal Bidar region in Hasaka province.

Battlefield sources, meantime, reported that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has sent massive military equipment, including heavy weaponry to areas under their control from Ain al-Arab (Kobani) to Ain Issa and the border city of Tal Abyaz in Raqqa province.

In a relevant development late last month, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that hundreds of trucks loaded with logistics and military support had arrived in areas under control of the SDF in Hasaka province in Northeastern Syria from the US bases in Northern Iraq.

The SOHR noted that the US army had sent over 1,380 trucks packed with military equipment to Northeastern Syria for its military bases and military airports in Eastern Euphrates and Hasaka province in Northeastern Syria via Simalka crossing in Northern Iraq.
