Unconfirmed reports of 250 US military personnel entering Syria’s Al-Hasakah




Over 250 U.S. military personnel and 48 armored vehicles entered Syrian territory, today Thursday, from the Iraqi border, Kurdish activists said this evening.

The U.S. military personnel reached the town of Al-Malkiyah in northwestern Syria entering the Al-Hasakah Governorate from Iraq’s Nineveh governorate.

It would not be out of the ordinary if the U.S. entered Syrian territory from Iraq’s Nineveh governorate since most of the Al-Hasakah governorate is under PYD governance.

Hundreds of U.S. military personnel are already advising the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern Syria; however, majority of these soldiers are deployed in the Al-Raqqa governorate.
