In addition, leaks were issued about Washington's installation of sophisticated radar equipment at two military airports near Ain al-Arab and Rumailan, as part of a plan to implement an "air embargo". Turkish media quoted local sources as saying that "Washington has deployed three advanced radar systems in the Tel Baidar, Ayn al-Arab and Surin areas, as well as 13 portable and fixed radar surveillance and reconnaissance systems." This coincided with reports that the new US envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, formulated recommendations for the administration in the White House, including the imposition of an "air and ground embargo" in the north and east of the Euphrates River to prevent Iranian and Syrian forces from moving militarily towards those areas.

"This American development may be in coordination with Russia ... and it is not at all inconsistent with the step of dialogue with the government," DePo said.
