US SUPPLIES KURDS WITH AIR-DEFENSE AND ANTI-TANK GUIDED MISSILES

The Kurdish PYD has reportedly received additional supplies of advanced weapons provided by the US.

About 200 trucks loaded with weapons, construction materials and heavy equipment has entered Syria from Iraq via Semalka Border Crossing this week.

Al Khabour news website claims the convoy recently entered Northern Syria also included a number of Stinger MANPADS and Israeli-made Spike ATGM.

According to al Khabour, the delivered Stinger and Spike missiles were put in a secret underground depot located near airbase in Rmelan town of Hasakah province. A number of US Marines and YPG fighters allegedly guard the facility.

The source also says the US has rejected to deliver the same weapons to the Syrian opposition to use them against government forces.
