Sixty Hummer cars of the US have entered Iraq via the Tarbil border crossing, a source said, pointing out that the fighter jets also intensified their activity west of Anbar province.

The vehicles entered three days ago and settled at the base of Ayn Al-Asad, the source said, adding that the force came from Jordan heavily armed.

Tensions have escalated recently between the US and Iran with increasing concerns about a potential US-Iran war. Earlier, the US pulled some diplomatic staff from its embassy in Baghdad following weekend attacks on four oil tankers in the Gulf, Reuters reported.
