BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – Satellite imagery that was captured recently from the Jordanian-Syrian border revealed a constructed U.S. military base located some 18 km east of Syria’s Tanf Crossing into Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.
As seen above from the satellite image, the U.S. has a fully functional base that possesses military hardware capable of deterring the Syrian government forces from the border.
Last month, the U.S. attacked a convoy of Syrian Army personnel in the southeastern countryside of Homs; however, it is not clear whether or not choppers from this base were used to carry out the assault.
The U.S. and their Jordanian allies are poised to maintain a region of influence near the Tanf Crossing, despite the fact Damascus has rejected any Coalition presence within its borders.
