US military vehicles were seen travelling early on Saturday along a motorway in northern Syria which leads to the Iraqi border.
It is common for US troops to send and receive equipment from the Iraqi side as well as carry out rotations.
The convoy's movement came amidst Turkey's continued offensive into northern Syria.
Turkey on Saturday said its military had taken central Ras al-Ayn, a key border town in northeastern Syria.
It's Turkey's most significant gain since its cross-border operation began against Syrian Kurdish fighters.
