US Supplies Kurds with Air Defense System

The US has supplied the Kurds in Northern Syria with advanced weapons, including air defense systems, Arab media reports said as the US army continues occupation of lands in the region.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted informed Kurdish sources as saying on Wednesday that the US has provided the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) with new and state-of-the-art weapons, including air defense systems.

They added that the US forces have told them that they will remain in Syria for an unlimited time and are, hence, reinforcing their military bases and positions on occupied lands in Northeastern Syria.

The US-led coalition has recently reinvigorated its bases in regions occupied by the SDF in Syria.

An Arab media outlet reported last Wednesday that the US forces had started setting up two more military bases in Qamishli region in Hasaka province amid tensions between civilians and the Kurds.

The Arabic-language al-Manar news website reported that the US-led coalition has resumed building two more military bases in the village of Jam’aya East of the town of Qamishli as well as areas West of the town.

It further said that the US military has set up a base at the Eastern entrance of the town Qamishli and also established a permanent base in the small town of Himo at the Western entrance of the town.
