A column of at least 35 trucks left Tal Alou’s silos in the town of Jarubieh, and arrived in Iraq through the illegal Al-Walid border crossing, the media reported.

It added that another caravan of 11 cargo vehicles left the same silos later and arrived in the neighboring country through the same illegal crossing.

The two convoys were guarded by gunmen from the self-proclaimed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia, which has a Kurdish-majority, and which Damascus accuses of being subservient to Washington and pursuing a separatist agenda.

According to local activists quoted by Syrian television, the US military have sent more than 200 trucks of this grain to Iraq in the last two weeks alone.

Hasakeh is the largest grain producing province in Syria, and the theft of this crop by the United States generated a bread crisis that forced the country to import wheat, amid many difficulties resulting from the economic blockade and sanctions by Washington.

The Syrian Government has repeatedly denounced the illegal presence of US troops, which it described as an occupation, and assured that the Pentagon’s actions in Syria encourage terrorist activity and are aimed at destabilizing the country and plundering its wealth.
