The incident occurred on M-4 highway in Syria’s northeastern Hasakeh province, when six tactical Russian military vehicles blocked the path of a US military column moving in the area without having previously notified it, said Rear Adm. Alexander Karpov, deputy head of the Russian military’s Reconciliation Center at the Khmeimim Airbase in Latakia.

According to the officer, this is another violation of the conflict de-escalation protocols by the US armed forces, adding that the convoy in this case had to turn around.

The United States has at least a dozen small bases in Syria, mostly in the oil and gas fields in the northeastern region of Al Jazeera, while it has one base in the Al-Tanf area, bordering Iraq, to prevent any land communication between these two countries.

The Damascus Government has repeatedly denounced the illegal presence of US troops, which it described as occupation, and assured that Washington’s actions in Syria encourage terrorist activity and aim to destabilize the country and loot its wealth.

Moscow and Damascus also stressed that the US actions in the territories it controls in Syria destabilize the situation and promote terrorist activity.
