Syrian journalist Mohammed Hassan posted images of a convoy he said was in northern Syria on Thursday, May 11. One of the images shows two US military Humvee vehicles.
They appear to basic up-armoured Humvees, similar to what the US provides to Iraqi forces.
Could these vehicles be destined for the YPG and YPJ?

A second image also surfaced on Twitter. It’s of a Cougar MRAP, we think it’s likely US Marine Corps. It is claimed that the vehicle was protecting the convoy.
The cylindrical antennas on the vehicle appear to be a to be a counter-IED jammer. They appear to be of US origin, adding weight to the theory that these are USMC vehicles.
