DAMASCUS, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. forces established a third military base in Syria's northeastern province of Hasakah on Saturday, a war monitor reported.

The new military base was set up in the village of Naqara, 3 km southwest of the city of Qamishli in Hasakah province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

All the three U.S. bases in Hasakah were located in areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, the Britain-based watchdog added.

The U.S. forces have established multiple military bases in Syria since entering the war-torn country in 2014, with its largest one in the al-Omar oil field in the eastern province of Deir al-Zour.

The Syrian government has repeatedly urged the withdrawal of the U.S. forces from the country, referring to them as occupation forces that entered Syria without its consent.
