Under the pretext of thwarting Daesh, the United States administration continues to reinforce its military bases and positions located near oil fields in Syria, which are currently under the control of the People's Protection Units YPG, in a move to strengthen its presence in the region.
The latest delivery was sent on Saturday night to the oil-rich Syrian provinces of al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor through the al-Waleed border crossing at the Iraq-Syria border.
According to Anadolu Agency, a logistics convoy containing 4x4 pickups, ambulances, minibuses and fuel-laden trucks passed from the border.
The number of trucks that the U.S. dispatched to the oil-rich areas has reached 600 in the last two months after Saturday's delivery, according to reports.
Earlier in October, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that the U.S will strengthen its military presence in Syria with “mechanized forces” to prevent Daesh terrorists seizing oil fields and revenue.
Ankara has repeatedly called its NATO allies to suppport Turkey in the fight against terrorism.
Turkish President Erdogan said Sunday that Turkey's goal with its anti-terrorism operation in northern Syria was to maintain peace for Syrians, not to "seize its oil".
