Xelil Şirvan, a commander of a group of Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, told Sputnik that a US military base had been detected near the town of Al-Qa'im in northwest Iraq on the border with Syria.
"According to our data, the United States has set up a new military base in the strategically important region of Al-Qa'im in Anbar province on the Iraqi-Syrian border. Americans are building up their military presence in the region, which is why Iraqi government forces have sent more military reinforcements to Al-Qa'im to boost border protection," he said.
A spokesperson for the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led militant group, detailed that the new base was involved in an operation the SDF fighters launched earlier in the month against the last Daesh stronghold in Hajin in eastern Syria.
Al-Qa'im, an Iraqi town which lies near the strategic border crossing that links to the Syrian town of Abu Kamal, was retaken in the beginning of November last year; later the Iraqi military announced that it had restored control over the checkpoints on the border with Syria.

What ever happened to no foreign engagements?
Maybe someday we'll bring our troops home. Not today I guess.
What could possibly go wrong?
Gotta keep feedin that neocon beast.
Just NO. Why?
The USAF will eventually have to pull out of Incirlic, Turkey. Erdogan is a dipshit.
That new base is located right where ISIS training camps were spotted six months ago...go figure.
No reason to trust the Russian State Media.
I saw where RT reported in October of 2015, the Taliban shot down a US cargo plane and 11 soldiers died. Anyone remember that? Don’t trust a thing from the state sponsored media. Only the Russian trolls believe it.
That’s an A-1 lie, that this place is right next to an ISIS camp, “go figure”, I’d like to see their backup. Watch out for those who just post lies. Slander and libel. And even if it was true, it could have been ISIS was beaten back. Real trolling. Despicable and disgusting and they probably have no back up. They happen to know where the ISIS camp is? The SDF consisting of mainly Kurds beat ISIS back, not their Russian/Hezbollah Terrorist/Iranian/Regime army. Pretty despicable this stuff would be posted.
Got any other good lies?
Per usual, you war-fags don't have a clue.
Sorry You ISIS/refugees to the West-lovers have let ISIS run rampant. The Russians have not done squat against them, nor has the regime nor has Iran nor has Hezbollah.
Besides Sputnik is State Media. No reason to believe what they say. This is surely, just a made up lie.
Like this one in the Russian press:
11 confirmed dead in US transport plane crash in Afghanistan
The Kremlin controlled press said the Taliban shot that plane down in October 2015. Does anyone remember that?
I think the fact you don’t have a clue where ISIS operates in Syria speaks for itself.
Thanks for playing...
The Spies are another thing, the Spies that poisoned Skripal.
Russian journalists uncovered the lies and found these guys worked for GRU or other agencies.
So, the Kremlin line just doesn’t cut it. Nothing believable about it. Russian lies.
One of those guys was awarded a medal for helping that Poroschenko Prez. escape from Ukraine. But the propagandists will call it a coup. No hiding the truth now.
Kremlin lies out in the open now.
Who exactly do you think liberated the ISIS stronghold of Abu Kamal?
Hint: it wasn't the US or its allies, despite their proximity.
I know you're desperately trying to change the subject, but try to focus that big brain of yours for a moment and answer the question.
Tell that to the 3rd MAW (Marine Air Wing). Starting March, 2004, Area of Operations Atlanta, along with 3/7.
Oh, BTW, ya better do something about the Iranian warehouse and transit center in Al-Qa’im. Or else the Israeli’s will.
More dead troops.
