ANKARA, 18 July – RIA Novosti. The newspaper writes that the US has sent 2,500 soldiers and military equipment to the region in northern Syria to protect the militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which is banned in Turkey. New Dawn.
The newspaper draws attention to the fact that the USA, hiding behind the rhetoric of “persecution and threats” from Russia and Iran, sent dozens of trucks with military equipment to the region.
“In this context, the Washington administration has deployed HIMARS missile systems in Deir ez-Zor, which is occupied by the PKK. Syrian state television, citing sources in the region, reported that the HIMARS system has reached the Deir ez-Zor region. Last week, a 60 truckload of fuel, logistics and military equipment was deployed. A convoy of 40 trucks loaded with military equipment and heavy weapons was transferred to the US base in Haseke, another PKK-occupied region, last week, and 2,500 soldiers are expected to be deployed to the PKK-occupied region on the Iraqi border.
