Landmine Blast Killed Russian Service Member, Injured Others In Northeastern Syria (Video)

On June 9, a Russian service member was killed and three others were wounded in a landmine blast in northeastern Syria.

The incident took place near the Turkish-occupied village of al-Assadiyah in northern al-Hasakah. A Russian military unit was patrolling the frontline separating Turkish forces from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) when one of its vehicles was hit by the landmine.

According to the Hawar News Agency, the body of the Russian service member who was killed in the blast was moved to the al-Darbasiyah hospital.

The landmine blast may have been the result of a planned attack. Turkey’s proxies launch attacks in the area on a regular basis. ISIS cells are also known to be active in northern al-Hasakah.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia has not commented on the incident, so far. Meanwhile, the SDF is yet to provide any additional information.

Several units of the Russian Military Police were deployed in northeastern Syria to monitor the ceasefire between Turkish forces and the SDF in 2019. If the death of a Russian service member is officially confirmed, al-Assadiyah blast would be Russian forces first fatal incident in the region.

Why exactly are Russians even involved into SDF-Turkish dispute? Nothing to do with Russia whatsoever, let Americans protect their kurdish vassals from their turkish ‘allies’.

JC Denton

Everything has to be aligned in such a way that turkeys and SDF wipe out each other, it would be the best outcome for Syria. Its not desirable if one of them has the high ground.

Jim Allen

Umm…. because they’re doing it in Syria.
Russia is invited to Syria, provides military assistance. Turkey, and SDF, affect the lives of Syrians, they steal resources, kill/injure civilians.
That makes it Russia’s business. Iran, Iraq, (Iraq has large numbers of large militia working with Iran, in Syria, and Iraq) Lebanon, (Hezbollah) Palestinian Resistance, (militia) as well. China has interests in the Middle East, Big interest in Iran. China has some interests in Syria, and works closely with Russia, increasingly so as time goes on.
How’s that grab ya’, troll ?

Mr-Niceguy

its called a fatal incident, not a fetal incident. Made me chuckle though

USA fights russian and chinese expansionism

What are they doing syria?USA has full right to defend against russian and chinese expansion. You will also see a lot of factory accidents in China and Russia in coming months/years because we have secret weapons :)

JC Denton

how many wars has China started in the last 40 years?

Fog of War

At least one.

JC Denton

Fog of War

China’s invasion of Vietnam 1979

yuri

fag of war finally correct

Peter Wallace

That didn’t last very long and China and Vietnam have been at each others throats for centuries.

Fog of War

Are you trying to excuse China’s blatant invasion ?

JC Denton

Well that was 42 years ago to be precise….

HB_norica

Well actually you HAD a “secret weapon ” but you don’t any more because some stupid dumbass just told the world you have a secret weapon.

only secret u have is CIA lube for getting raped by your govt
LOL

Jim Allen

They’re pretty stingy with that, too.

Peter Wallace

Got to go in dry is it. No wonder Iron Lyin is not speaking to jens with him squealing like a stuck pig.

Jim Allen

No, US has no rights in Syria, or the Middle East in general. US Coalition has invaded these countries illegally, attacked civilians, and civilian infrastructure, (all terrorist acts) murdered the leaders stole the gold reserves, and stealing the resources. These are crimes against humanity, war crimes, terrorism, and more.
Russia is not expanding, it’s in Syria at President Assad’s request for military assistance. US, and it’s pet enemies are invaders illegally occupying Syria, Iraq, Libya, after destroying these countries. That’s what US Government does to countries the Banking Cabal wants destroyed. This includes USA.
You’re a pitiful troll, don’t quit your day job, if you still have one. 200 million US citizens have lost their jobs since 2006.
