US steps up military presence in Syria

The U-S military has stepped up its presence and firepower in the highly strategic deserts of southeastern Syria.
According to US-backed militants, American forces have set up a second base around 65 kilometers from AT-TANF in Homs province. Militants say more US troops and weapons are arriving at both bases. Special Forces are also patrolling distances up to 100 kilometers from AT-TANF. Meanwhile, the U-S has moved its long range artillery to the region. A senior U-S intelligence official describes the deployment as a significant boost as the artillery known as HIMARS has a range of 300 kilometers. Tensions have escalated recently near AT-TANF in Syria’s Badia deserts near the Iraqi border. U-S warplanes have twice bombed Syrian troops advancing on terrorists. American forces are deployed in Syria without the consent of the government in Damascus.
