TEHRAN (FNA)- Saudi Arabia plans to start up a military organization to be backed by the US in Eastern Syria as Washington continues military aids to the militants in Eastern Euphrates, Arab media reports said Tuesday.

The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen TV network quoted tribal sources in Eastern Euphrates as saying that Saudi Arabia intends to start and sponsor a military force with financial and military back up through a number of tribes in the region.

It pointed to Saudi Arabia's military and financial backup to reinforce Deir Ezzur military council affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces in the region, and said Riyadh plans to once again bring to the scene the militants affiliated to al-Ghad that operate under the command of Ahmad al-Jarba in Eastern Syria allegedly to fight Turkey's aggression.

Since the beginning of the Syrian War, the US has been looking for setting up a tribal army in Eastern Syria comprising 40,000 combatants with billions of dollars of financial support by Saudi Arabia.

Meantime, the Arabic-language al-Watan Online news website reported that a new military convoy comprising 50 trucks carrying weapons as well as military and logistical equipment arrived in areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Deir Ezzur province via Simalka crossing from the Iraqi territories.

In a relevant development earlier this monht, tens of trucks carrying US military and logistical aids have been dispatched to the areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Eastern Euphrates despite declaring the end of the ISIL by Washington, media sources said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that a convoy comprising 60 trucks containing logistic and military consignments as well as prefabricated houses was sent to Eastern Euphrates via Simalka crossing in Northern Iraq.

The SOHR also reiterated that about 20 trucks have also been sent to Kobani Airport and Kharab Ashk military base in Northern Aleppo, and said that the remaining of military aid was also sent to areas under SDF control in al-Jazira region in Deir Ezzur province.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
