In Video: Russian Forces Intercept U.S. Convoy In Northeast Syria

Donate

The Russian Military Police intercepted on May 2 a U.S. convoy heading to the city of al-Qamishli in northern al-Hasakah.

According to local sources, Russian forces blocked the road leading to the eastern entrance of al-Qamishli with several armored vehicles, preventing U.S. troops from entering the city.

U.S. forces brought in 15 armored vehicles from their bases in the area of al-Rmelan. Furthermore, coalition warplanes flew over al-Qamishli. Nevertheless, Russian forces stood their ground until an understanding was reached.

The Russian move was likely a response to an earlier incident, in which U.S. forces blocked a routine patrol of Russian forces in the al-Rmelan oil fields in the northeastern countryside of al-Hasakah.

This was the first time the Russian Military Police intercepts U.S. forces in northeast Syria. In the last few months, U.S. forces worked to prevent Russian forces from patrolling oil fields in the region. In return, locals and government forces restricted the movement of U.S. forces around al-Qamishli.

Russia is working to solidify its presence in northeast Syria by deploying additional forces and building strong relations with local Arab tribes. The U.S. appears to be concerned by the Russian steps, as it is now trying to reclaim its influence in the region.

    US just needs to GTFO. They were not invited by the legitimate government of Syria.

      Okay, then the russkies should try kicking out the US troops. Last time they tried that with 800 of their special forces at Conoco oil field, 400 were wiped off the Earth within 1 hour and they lost 30 tanks and vehicles. They got manhandled by the US Airforce. Never again since then has the Russkie airforce EVER TRIED challenging our warplanes.

          Okay, an unarmed spy plane. Big deal. Meanwhile F-22’s and F-35’s were over 100 miles away undetected by Russia’s S-400’s and jets, locked onto and ready to destroy those rusty junk jets threatening our P-8 Poseidon plane.

            What is it about the US and IAF left Syrian airspace west of the river when Russia and Syria imposed a no fly zone there that you don’t understand? That’s US/IAF air inferiority not superiority.

            The NATO Zionists and IAF lost air superiority west of the river and failed to stop the destruction of their terrorist proxy forces there. The same thing is in the process of happening to the Jew world order’s Kurd and other terrorists east of the river.

            Citing a military specialist, the publication claimed: “Until recently,
            the Russian Su-57 was ridiculed in the United States, claiming that it
            could not claim the title of stealth, however, given the fact that the
            Russian fighter unimpededly covered several thousand kilometers directly
            over the U.S. military bases in Iraq and Syria, it’s quite obvious that
            we are really talking about an “invisible plane” that successfully
            clicked Washington’s nose.”

        Battle of Khasham? Your version and the US version is fake news. Only a handful of Russians died and they were contractors from Wagner, not special forces. Thanks for playing, please try again.

        • Cromwell

          Yes and they had no air cover,which seems insane.

          • @Inc2Get

            Wagner with Air cover? According to US sources, the americans called the russians and said what the hell are you doing. Why are you approaching are bases and the Russians said its not US, you have permission to strike them. And there is no evidence the event even happened. No video evidence, no nothing. Not even an official US recognition. It was routers that spread it and everyone picked up the story. Also, the stories ranges from 1000 mercenaries attacking to 100. And some say 10 dead and others say 100 dead. I very much doubt that if it did happen, more than 40 were killed because they would have retreated before that.

      • RichardD

        They get challenged every day, that’s why they stay out of 70% Syrian airspace west of the river. And when the no fly zone is expanded east of the river. They’ll stay out of that airspace also. Though the Iraqis really need to get the US out of Iraq.

          • Romeo Pesiao

            And the S-300 acquired by Assad to protect Syria interest still ineffective against Israeli air campaign until now.

          • Toni Liu

            The S 300 quantity that syrian had right now isnt enough to defend from israeli attack, and the problem after that is more severe if syria actively trying downing israeli plane, because most of time they attack from neighbour airspace or israeli airspace make it hard to do that, but last time they trying to enter syrian airspace, their f 16 got shot down with s200

          • @Inc2Get

            The S-300 Syria got has not even been used. Russia has specifically prohibited Syria from using it against anyone. Why? Well because of the followings:
            1. Syria received a few batches, certainly not enough to protect its airspace. You need a integrated defence shield in order to fully protect yourself.

            2. Israel rarely enters Syrian territory when launching airstrikes, they instead launch from mainly Lebanon or other countries. This is a major dilemma as the neighboring countries lack any air defence to shoot down Israeli planes and the S-300 can not reach other countries.

            3. If Syria deployed the S-300 to their borders, they would be able to intercept Israeli planes in Lebanon but there is one problem. You still need an integrated air defence to protect the systems, otherwise they are sitting ducks. Even if they do shoot down Israeli planes, Israel would easily launch a counter attack and destroy it.

          • Toni Liu

            Yes you right, even pantsir cant be utilised to its full potential because lack in number, where it just spent all its ammo and just waiting hopelessly while reloading, no wonder it can be destroyed.
            So thats what happened when they dont had integrated air defence with appropriate number it needs

    ” a routine patrol of Russian forces in the al-Rmelan oil fields ”

    “In the last few months, U.S. forces worked to prevent Russian forces from patrolling oil fields in the region”

    “Russia is working to solidify its presence in northeast Syria by deploying additional forces and building strong relations with local Arab tribes. The U.S. appears to be worried from the Russian steps, as it is now trying to reclaim its influence in the region.”

    then there also the instance of the US asking kurds to take a more actively role in paroling the oil fields.

    now we also have,
    U.S. forces brought in 15 armored vehicles from their bases in the area of al-Rmelan. Furthermore, coalition warplanes flew over al-Qamishli. Nevertheless, Russian forces stood their ground until an understanding was reached.

    so under threat of air strikes and being attacked by full 3 combat teams, the Russians held firm. But the US forces cool broke first. If the US troops morale broke first even with all those advantages. How can anyone expect the US troops to hold their ground when evenly matched.

    the US is loosing control of the oil field bit by bit.

    • jm74

      Syria gave those oil fields to Russia in lieu of payment. Russia will have to take those oil fields eventually.

    • Jacob Wohl

      wont happen. oil fields remain American until Butcher Assad steps down or kicks out Iran. Those are the only 2 conditions. Until then, no oil for Syria. Ha!

      • Daily Beatings

        It’s already happening. US bases are consolidating in the region as a defensive measure because they know what’s coming. US also started to hand off patrol duties to the SDF, which is a clear indication they are intending to leave.

      • LR captain

        but it already has jacob the US has already sent three combat teams. with two fighters, (over whelming force) but they did not have nerve to fight the Russians otherwise the Russians would have been dead already.

        • Harry Smith

          I am not a military specialist, but didn’t Russia controls air in Syria? Of course those 15 armored vehicles with personnel and air support is a serious force. But if Russian troops were attacked by them it means no fly zone for NATO and quick death for these USA soldiers because of Russian air superiority in the region. What do you think?

          • <>

            The only air superiority in the region belongs to us, with over 500 jets not including drones. So no, the Russians won’t hit any U.S forces because Israel can give them air cover if needed in a very short notice.

          • Harry Smith

            Why then Israeli fighter jets do not enter Syrian airspace? https://media3.giphy.com/media/QmH0sGl3nS4H4BvQsG/giphy.gif

          • <>

            We have entered their airspace many times to attack IRGC targets, nothing new about it.

          • Harry Smith

            Yep, you entered BEFORE. Now every strike is made outside of Syrian airspace.

    It is very easy to predict behavior of the U.S. forces. This is because of well established track record of being international bully. And thereby the heart and soul of the coward. Just make a list of those U.S. has picked on since WWII and note the outcome. U.S. will not engage a capable and determined force like Russia or China head to head. Just thought of casualties makes them queasy. But more important to them than casualties is to foster illusion of invincibility. Once the aircraft start going down and pilots are captured, the illusion goes up in smoke. That is their true fear.
