TEL AVIV — Russian intelligence has information about U.S. troops inside Turkey near the country’s border with Syria, a senior Syrian official told KleinOnline today.
The official said the Russians said they observed American forces taking part in Turkish military measures to secure the Syria-Turkey borders.
The official said the information about a U.S. military presence in Turkey has led to a debate within the Syrian leadership about whether to move the Syrian military to its highest alert level. Currently, the Syrian army is on its second highest alert.
