Deir al-Zor - SMART

The International Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) sent new reinforcements to its military base in the Conoco gas field of the Khasham area, 14 kilometers northeast of Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria.

On Monday, the media worker of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Khaled al-Halshoum reported to SMART that 10 vehicles, including six trucks, entered the Conoco gas field accompanied by SDF members. Al-Halshoum added that the vehicles came from the Tell Beydar base in al-Hasakah.

The United States-led International Coalition sent several convoys, including dozens of trucks loaded with military equipment and logistical materials, to its military bases in Northeastern Syria. On Sept. 10, 2019, the International Coalition sent a convoy of about a hundred trucks to its bases in al-Hasakah and al-Raqqa.

On July 16, 2019, the US announced 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 last year to withdraw its forces from there.
