On Thursday, a security source claimed that construction of new structures for American personnel had begun at the Ain al-Asad air base west of Anbar.
According to the source, the Maalouma Agency reported that “The American forces have begun the process of constructing new buildings for their forces inside the Ain al-Asad air base, as part of a plan to increase the number of their forces after the Al-Aqsa Flood Operation and their exposure to missile attacks, and the failure of their interception by the American air defenses.”
He went on to say, “The American forces had previously annexed new areas of land close to the base after paying sums of money to the landowners, in an indication that they would remain for a long-term period.”
He went on to say, “The American forces intend to make major changes at the Ain al-Asad base in order to restore the large numbers that arrived at the base building.”
It is worth noting that a security source previously reported that the number of American personnel inside the Ain al-Assad base building had grown for precautionary reasons after it was exposed to missile assaults.
