At the US base near the village of Tell-Beydar (near the zone of the Turkish Armed Forces Operation “Peace Spring”), local residents noticed new reconnaissance stations. From the outlines, it can be assumed that this is an LCMR or AN / TPQ-48 counter-battery radar. This type of radar is used to identify enemy mortar positions.
The deployment is taking place against a backdrop of aggravation on the Syrian-Turkish border. The bombardments of the M4 Highway occur literally every day. According to SOHR, on December 2, a Kurdish sabotage group entered the territory of the Turkish military base, provoking a shootout. After that, according to SOHR, the Turkish command brought the armed formations under its control to the highest degree of combat readiness. This information was denied by the Kurdish side.
