Syrians seen forcing US military convoys in Hasakah to retreat (+Video) – World Today News

Residents of the village of al-Salihiyah blocked the road, forcing an American convoy, escorted by US-backed Kurdish militants affiliated with the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), to turn back and back in the direction it came from on Thursday afternoon, according to Syria’s official SANA news agency.

In another event, a four-vehicle US military convoy was forced back as Syrian government soldiers and enraged residents of al-Da’doushiya village barred their approach.

The convoy was accompanied by a car belonging to SDF militants, according to SANA at the time.

The US military has stationed forces and equipment in eastern and northeastern Syria, with the Pentagon saying the deployment is aimed at preventing oil fields in the region from falling into the hands of Daesh terrorists.

Damascus, however, says the illegal deployment is meant to plunder the country’s resources.

Former US President Donald Trump has repeatedly acknowledged that US forces are in Syria for its oil.

After failing to oust the Syrian government with the help of its proxies and direct involvement in the conflict, the US government has now escalated its economic war against the Arab country.
