BREAKING: In the last 24 hours more than 500 US soldiers have entered northern Syria, returning to bases they had withdrawn from, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The observatory stated that one of the bases is located on the M4 highway between Tal Tamr and Tal Baidar, which is part of an area linking the Iraqi border, Qamishli, and Aleppo.

It added that US aircraft have been landing in the city of Srin’s airport for the past five days, as well as the offloading of cargo from the planes. They also stated that there were US logistical and military equipment and vehicles in the planes.

The observatory also noted the entry of two US convoys into Syrian land on Sunday night, that included over 85 vehicles and trucks carrying military equipment.

Earlier this month, President Trump ordered a withdrawal of virtually all US forces from northern Syria after days of assurances from the Pentagon that the United States was not “abandoning” its Kurdish partners in the campaign against ISIS, and paving the way for Turkey to invade Kurdish areas, amid fears of another Kurdish genocide.
