In the social networks is a wildness of mirrors about the situation on the border of Syria and Jordan. Several sources indicate that the column of American armored vehicles (called a figure of around 20 tanks and armored fighting vehicles) moved to the border with Syria in support of parts of the Jordanian special forces. Next, the data diverge – some sources claim that the technique remained in Jordan, others that it allegedly crossed the border of Syria.
No official comment on the matter yet. Again, according to unconfirmed reports, the Russian VKS are monitoring this border.
It is worth Recalling that in the southern regions of Syria and previously had been part of us special forces and SAS units, who in the framework of programs supervised by the CIA supported operations “New Syrian Army”, whose training camps deployed in Jordan with the full cooperation of the Jordanian military intelligence. As an excuse when you enter additional troops to the territory formally controlled by the NSA could be “the creation of a security zone for refugees.”It is also not excluded the option that the US can try to have a new operation against Abu-Kemal, only this time more prepared, as for last year’s disgrace of the CIA and the US air force then a few weeks was justified.

Information about the concentration of American troops on the Syrian-Jordanian border, came after a meeting of trump with the king of Jordan.
The movement of troops could be connected with the attack on the Syrian-Jordanian border.
A powerful explosion occurred at a checkpoint near a refugee camp on the Syrian-Jordanian border. This publication reports Al-Masdar.
According to him, blew up a car filled with explosives. It is noted that in the incident about 10 people were killed or injured.
In addition, after the explosion began intense clashes between the forces of the “free Syrian army” (FSA) and an unknown group of militants, allegedly linked to terrorists “Islamic state” (banned in the Russian organization) in the South of Syria. The Jordanian armed forces at the moment are checking the district to identify potential terrorist threats, the publication adds.
According to “al-Masdar” https://mobile.almasdarnews.com/article/us-jordanian-forces-break-syria-rescue-rebels-surrounded-isis/ American parts could go into Syria to save the rebels FSA/NSA assaulted by ISIS.
In General, the movement at the border goes, but in which direction, is unclear.
Tillerson after talks with Lavrov rather vaguely stated that for US the priority is ISIS, not Assad and “stabilization” of the situation in Syria, the U.S. plan to do after the defeat of the Caliphate.
It is also worth noting that the US has put forward its Aug led by the aircraft carrier “Carl Vinson” to the Korean Peninsula http://www.rbc.ru/politics/09/04/2017/58e98f409a7947799b5089e6?from=newsfeed. The aircraft carrier and its accompanying ships left the base in San Diego. A show of force, formally directed against the DPRK, but in addition probably is an additional signal for China.
