The U.S-led coalition plans to establish a new military base in Ain Dewar area in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah, in the Iraq-Syria-Turkey triangle, Asharq al-Awsat said on Feb. 15, citing a report from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
According to the SOHR, a military convoy of over 50 vehicles and trucks affiliated to the coalition were seen crossing into northeastern Syria from the semi-autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq last week.
"Trucks, carrying armored vehicles, weapons, military, and logistical equipment, entered via Al-Walid border crossing with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, heading towards Al-Qamishli area," the Observatory reported.
"This is the 11th Coalition convoy to enter Syria since the beginning of 2021," it added.
The Syrian People’s Protection Units (YPG) is a key element in the fight against ISIS under the U.S.-led international coalition. Turkey however considers the group as a terror organization due to its links to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
