Turkish newspaper Yeni Şafak, which is close to the ruling Justice and devilment part (AKP), revealed that Washington intends to send additional 2,500 soldiers and military equipment to northern Syria, under the pretext of the growing threats from Russia and Iran.
However, the Turkish newspaper pointed out that this “extra” reinforcement is nothing but to serve the real reason, which is protecting the PKK.
A report by Yeni Şafak stated that the US administration announced during the NATO summit, in Vilnius, that it would send 2,500 soldiers to the areas where the PKK is deployed in Syria, as a commitment to what it called the joint struggle against terrorism.
According to Yeni Şafak report, despite Washington’s announcement that its forces will operate in northern Syria and Iraq, it has become clear that the United States has recently undertaken serious fortification work in this region in order to secure Kurdistan.
The report indicated that the United States, under the pretext of being harassed and threatened by Russia and Iran, sent dozens of trucks loaded with military equipment to the region.
Washington had deployed HIMARS missile systems in Deir al Zour, which is under the control of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
According to the Yeni Şafak, last week, Washington sent a convoy of 60 trucks loaded with fuel, logistics and military equipment, in addition to 40 trucks loaded with military equipment and heavy weapons, to the US base in Hasakah, which is another area occupied by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
Last week, the Associated Press quoted a high-ranking US defense official as saying that the United States is analyzing a number of military options to confront the growing Russian aggression in the Syrian aerospace, which stems from growing cooperation and coordination between Moscow, Tehran, and the Syrian government in an attempt to put pressure on the US forces to withdraw from Syria.
