    Washington has dispatched an advanced radar system to its bases in Syria where U.S. troops are currently “protecting” oilfields in the country’s northeast.

    Over the past week, a powerful radar system was sent to bases in Deir Ezzor which was activated last Friday.

    Tanks dispatched from Iraq to protect the oilfields officially entered the country on Monday, according to reports.

    The U.S. had withdrawn its forces from 16 bases in Syria during Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring, but its soldiers recently returned to six bases and military posts.

    The U.S. is also said to be building two new bases in Deir Ezzor where, according to local sources, two large runways are being built in order to provide logistical aerial support to the bases.
