Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that U.S. forces are expanding “Tal Baydar” military base in Al-Qamishli countryside, north of Al-Hasakah province, in order to bring troops from other bases nearby.
This action comes as Russia is expanding its scope of influence in NE Syria. It is also coincided with the American – Russian recent tension that is considerably escalating in areas, north-east of Syria.
On January 23, Syrian Observatory sources report that American forces were stationed on the international highway M4, at the entrance to Por Said village near Hattin junction which connects Amuda and al-Hasaka city, in order to prevent Russian patrols from passing and roaming in the road.
In the same context, a Russian patrol entered Ain Dewar village and took the road of Semalaka crossing accompanied by a SDF vehicle, as Us armored vehicles parked at the entrance to the town of Gil Agha waiting for the Russians to pass.
