The United States have provided weapons supply to the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the PKK terror group affiliate in Syria, many times in 2016. But only a few of these arms deliveries could be ascertained.
Axar.az reports that, on April 7, the U.S. military had dispatched its first supply to the terror group at Rumeylan air base in Ayn al-Arab city of northeast Syria, in Al-Hasakah province.
A large amount of ammunition were carried to the base with US cargo planes from the northern Iraqi city of Erbil.
Local sources claimed that Pentagon continues its arms supply to the airbase, which was established by the U.S. army in October 2015.
During an operation this summer to capture another northern Syrian city, Manbij, at western coast of the Euphrates River, the U.S. had accelerated the weapons delivery.
Even before the ongoing operation in Raqqa, which has been launched days before the Nov. 8 presidential election in the U.S., the terror group received a huge amount of arms including heavy weapons.
In the past two weeks, U.S. cargo planes have dropped weapons at the Rumeylan airbase three times: on Dec. 13, 23 and 27.
The last supply was the biggest one.
