NORTH and EAST SYRIA: New International coalition military reinforcements arrive at Qasrok base

HASSAKAH / TEL TAMR, Syria – As part of its ongoing operations to fight ISIS cells, the International coalition forces have brought in military and logistical reinforcements through the al-Walid crossing between Iraq and Syria. North Press News Agency reported that the reinforcements arrived on Wednesday at the military base Qasrok, east of the town of Tel Tamr, Khabur Valley, in Hassakeh countryside.

The reinforcements included large numbers of trucks loaded with military and logistical equipment. The trucks were accompanied by six U.S. military armored vehicles to protect the trucks. The reinforcements are part of the ongoing International coalition’s operations to combat ISIS cells in cooperation and coordination with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The International coalition against ISIS supplies its Qasrok base regularly with military reinforcements.

In recent days, the SDF has carried out a large-scale security campaign to hunt down ISIS cells in the territories of the southern countryside of Hassakeh to the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zor. Earlier, the General Command of SDF announced the end of the first phase of the “Deterring Terrorism” campaign, in which 110 suspected ISIS members were arrested.
