Ain Al-Arab (Kobani) | “International Coalition” helicopters land in Lafarge base

SOHR activists have monitored “International Coalition” helicopters flying over Lafarge base, which was previously taken by the International Coalition as its base, while two “Apache” helicopters landed in the base near Kharab Ashk village in Ain Al-Arab (Kobani) countryside.

According to reliable SOHR sources, four trucks carrying plane fuel arrived to Lafarge base a few hours ago, without knowing the reasons.

On June 9, SOHR activists monitored the entry of a US military delegation in four vehicles to Lafarge base, a former coalition base, near Kharab Ashak village in Ain Al-Arab/Kobani countryside, east of Aleppo.

On June 1, reliable sources informed SOHR that International Coalition Forces withdrew from “Lafarge” base near Kharab Ashak village in eastern Aleppo countryside, several days ago.

The withdrawal came days after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to launch a 30-kilometre-deep military operation along the border with Syria.

It is worth noting that Kharab Ashak area hosts a military helicopter base for International Coalition before it withdrew from it after Turkey’s military operation “Peace Spring” in 2019.

This Coalition base was formerly a cement factory, east of Ain al-Arab (Kobani), and US helicopters set out to “kill Al-Baghdadi” in Idlib this February after landing there from Iraq and then headed to Idlib.
