Some 60 trucks loaded with weapons, ammunition and military and logistical materiel headed to the Kherab Jir US air base in the Hasakeh province, local activists reported as quoted by the Syrian state television.
The caravan entered Syrian territory through the Al-Walid crossing with northern Iraq, often used by the US military to enter and leave the country along the two crossings of Simalka and Mahmoudieh.
The trucks, according to witnesses, were escorted by armored vehicles and vehicles of the separatist militia, the Syrian Democratic Forces, sponsored by the United States.
In addition, a military cargo plane landed at the Shaddadi base in southern Hasakeh.
The United States maintains at least a dozen bases in Syria, mostly in the oil and gas fields, as well as one in the Tanef region on the border with Iraq to prevent any land communication between these two countries.
The Damascus government has repeatedly denounced the illegal presence of US troops, describing it as an occupation, and assured that Washington’s actions in Syria encourage terrorist activity and aim to loot the wealth of the people.
