Routine patrols in NE Syria | U.S. and International Coalition armoured vehicles roam al-Hasakeh countryside

Al-Hasakeh Governorate- Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:

SOHR sources say that U.S. forces have conducted a military patrol in the Al-Hasakah countryside, consisting of four armoured vehicles, setting off from the town of Al-Malikia and headed towards its western countryside and then to the Simalka border crossing with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Meanwhile, four armoured vehicles of the “International Coalition” toured the countryside of al-Hasakeh this evening, setting off from the airport of the town of Al-Malikia and headed to its military base at the “Rubaria” airport used by the International Alliance as an airstrip.

SOHR sources from Al-Hasakah countryside say that U.S. forces have redeployed today, east of Hasaka, as they emptied their posts in the silos of Tal Allou in the area of Al-Yarabiya, and moved to the military base they established months ago, as part of the continuous movements of the Americans in the north-eastern region of Syria.

On July 2, 2020, Syrian Observatory sources reported that U.S. forces turned an agricultural airport in the Al-Yarabiya countryside (Tal Cojar), east of Hasakeh, into a military base and established a helicopter and cargo aircraft airstrip.

The new base was also fortified with concrete blocks and soil barriers.

On February 8, SOHR activists reported seeing a new International Coalition convoy entering Syrian territory via Al-Walid border crossing with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, consisting of 45 military vehicles and trucks, including military and logistical equipment. The convoy headed to al-Qamishli and then to the bases of the International Coalition in countryside of Hasakeh and Deir ez-Zor.

It is worth noting that this is the tenth Coalition convoy to enter Syria since the beginning of 2021.

On February 6, SOHR activists reported seeing a new International Coalition convoy entering Syrian territory via Al-Walid border crossing with the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, consisting of 50 military vehicles and trucks, including military and logistical equipment. The convoy headed to to the bases of the International Coalition in countryside of Hasakeh.
