The Syrian military personnel deployed at a checkpoint at the entrance to the town of Tal Barak in the Hasakeh province prevented a column of four armored vehicles from crossing through said town.
According to the sources, the vehicles were forced to go back and find another way to reach their bases scattered in various areas of the province, rich in oil and gas.
Actions against Pentagon units and the separatist Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia backed by them have recently increased amid popular anger at their practices.
Washington has at least a dozen bases in Syria, mainly in the oil and gas fields in Hasakeh, and maintains one in Tanef on the border with Iraq to prevent any land communication between the two countries.
The Damascus government 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 aim to destabilize the country and loot its wealth.
