Two days after rocket attacks, the US has dispatched military reinforcements to its bases in the oil fields in eastern Syria, local sources told Anadolu Agency on Friday.
"American forces based in Iraq sent military reinforcements consisting of 30 trucks carrying armoured vehicles, tanks and bulldozers," the sources shared.
They also said that the reinforcements included boxes expected to hold munition and rockets.
According to the source, who refused to disclose his name, two helicopters escorted the military reinforcements from the air as well as members from the YPG/PKK terror group.
The military reinforcements from US bases in Iraq entered Syria on Thursday, arriving in Al-Hasakah, and then travelled to Al-Omar oil field in the Deir ez-Zor governorate.
Last week, around ten rockets were fired from Al-Mayadin, where pro-Iran militias are concentrated.
In response, US-led international troops targeted the areas from where the rockets were fired.
