Russian military building new base near US forces in northeast Syria

Damascus:The Russian military is building a new base in the border triangle area that links Turkey, Syria, and Iraq, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Friday.According to the monitor, approximately a dozen Russian armored vehicles arrived in the border town of Al-Malikiyah, escorted by two Russian choppers.

The report added that the base is being setup in the village of Qasr Deeb, which is northwest of Al-Malikiyah, which is close to the border triangle between the three countries.The SOHR article coincides with Al-Masdar’s report on Thursday about a Russian military convoy heading to the border triangle area for the first time ever.A source from the Syrian Armed Forces said the Russian military was conducting a patrol in the area, but did not mention anything about a new base in Al-Hasakah.

However, if this is true, this new military base will be near the U.S. Armed Forces in the northeastern region of Syria.Both the U.S. and Russian armed forces have been involved in a small Cold War-like conflict in northeastern Syria, with both armies building bases and deploying heavy weapons to the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
