Al-Hasakah - SMART

The International Coalition forces against the Islamic State (IS) sent reinforcements to their bases in Northeastern Syria.

On Thursday, local sources reported to SMART that a military convoy of about 30 trucks, fuel tanks and four-wheel vehicles, loaded with unknown logistical materials, entered from the al-Waleed border crossing between the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and the al-Hasakah governorate last night.

The sources stated that the convoy headed to the US bases in the al-Qamishli area, and then to the city of al-Hasakah. The sources expected that the vehicles will continue heading to the military bases of the International Coalition in the Deir al-Zor governorate.

Both the International Coalition and the US periodically send reinforcements to their bases in Northeastern Syria.

On July 16, 2019, the US said that it will keep its armed forces in Northern and Northeastern Syria currently to continue its military campaign against the IS, after it issued a decision in 2018 to withdraw its forces from there. The Pentagon announced that it will continue to send reinforcements to the Syrian Democratic Forces to fight the IS.
