A new US military base is being set up in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor province, Iran’s Fars news agency has cited sources as saying that.

The base, which is located in the Badiyeh al-Sha’afa area, will be equipped with “advanced military tools and systems,” according to the sources.

The report comes a week after Sharfan Darwish, spokesman for the Manbij Military Council of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said that the US military had created a new military base in the Syrian region of Manbij about three months ago, following Ankara’s threats to seize control of the area.

Darwish was quoted by Reuters as saying that “after the Turkish attack on Afrin and the increase in Turkish threats towards Manbij, coalition forces built the base to monitor and protect the border [between the combatants].”

According to Turkey’s Anadolu news agency, the US has already established two bases in the Manbij region and deployed some 300 soldiers in the area.

For its part, Fars reported last month that a new US military base had been established at the al-Omar oilfield in southeastern Deir ez-Zor, where a variety of military hardware, including missile systems and armored vehicles, had been deployed.
