Reports are circulating that  yesterday the US army made some very unusual movement at the Syrian-Jordanian border, north of Jordan’s Al-Mafraq Governorate.

Local sources said that about 20 US Army armoured vehicles (including battle tanks and artillery pieces) carried on trucks were spotted in Al-Mafraq. US troops were allegedly accompanied with the Jordanian Army’s 3rd Division.

The US Special Operation Forces, the UK Special Operation Forces and units from some other countries have been conducting operations across the Syrian-Jordanian border for a long time. However, it was the first time when a notable number of US amoured vehicles was spotted there.

It’s important to note that the US Ro-Ro ship Liberty Passion had arrived to the Jordanian port of Al-Aqapa few days ago. This event followed a meeting between the Jordanian King and the US president. These two facts support the idea that the US-led coalition could launch an anti-ISIS operation in southern Syria from the direction of the Syrian-Jordanian border. The goal of the operation will likely be to get control over the Syrian-Iraqi border and to reach Deir Ezzor. The operation will involve FSA members trained in camps in Jordan and the US-led coalition’s forces.
