US setting up air bases in Northern Syria

The United States has nearly finished setting up an air base in Kurdish-controlled northern Syria and is proceeding with the construction of a second base for dual military and civilian use, a Kurdish website reported on Sunday.

The Erbil-based news website BasNews, quoting a military source in the Kurdish-backed Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), said most of the work on a runway in the oil town of Rmeilan in Hasaka was complete. The source said a new air base southeast of Kobani, straddling the Turkish border, is also being constructed.

The source in the U.S.-backed alliance, which also includes Arab armed groups, told the news portal that scores of U.S. experts and technicians were involved in the project.
