The US military has entered Syria
Lebanese news agency Al-Masdar News, citing the Syrian state news agency SANA, reported that a US military convoy had crossed the Syrian-Iraqi border and entered the Arab republic.
According to SANA, the military convoy entered Syria last weekend. The military’s goal is to reach the army base in the province of Deir Ezzor. SANA claims that the American convoy has crossed the border with Iraq in a region controlled by the Syrian democratic forces.
The Americans were in a column of approximately 30 vehicles, including heavily armored vehicles, tanks, artillery, and more. The convoy was accompanied and guarded by air from attacking helicopters.
The US military in the Middle East region, especially in Iraq and Syria, often makes rotational movements and relocations. It is possible that this convoy of 30 armored vehicles as part of the quarterly relocation of the military.
War in Syria
In February, Turkey lost at least 62 troops killed in Syria, nearly 100 soldiers were wounded, dozens of Turkish armored vehicles were destroyed and more than ten drones, including drone, were shot down. Washington has repeatedly accused Moscow of involvement in the deaths of Turkish soldiers, Russia rejects these allegations.
In early March, the presidents of Russia and Turkey, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan, concluded an agreement according to which a ceasefire came into force in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad later said that if the US and Turkish military did not leave the country, Damascus would be able to use force.
The reason for the Russian-Turkish negotiations was a sharp aggravation of the situation in Idlib, where in January a large-scale offensive by the Syrian army against the positions of the armed opposition and terrorists began.
Government forces recaptured nearly half of the Idlib de-escalation zone and left behind a number of Turkish observation posts. After that, Ankara sharply increased its military contingent in the region and launched the operation “Spring Shield” to push the Syrian troops. Turkey is also supported by militants loyal to it.
