A unit of the US Marine Corps has arrived at an airfield in the al Hasakah province.
According to the source, the unit was transported on helicopters from Iraqi Kurdistan to the Rumeilan airfield located near the Syrian city of Qamishli. They started arriving five days ago. In addition to several hundred US marines, an artillery battery is expected to arrive from the Iraqi base.
According to the source, part of the military forces, which cannot arrive in Syria using helicopters, will be transported by land through the Semalika passage located between Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan.
