US expanding air strip in Syria


Satellite imagery appears to show the US expanding a formerly disused air strip in Kurdish-controlled northern Syria.

The images, from the security analysts Stratfor, show a runway being extended from 700m to 1.3km.

That would make it more suitable for a larger aircraft such as a Hercules.

A spokesman for the US Department of Defence said its small team in Syria needed "occasional logistical support".
