Locals Intercept Another U.S. Convoy In Northeast Syria

On April 16 morning, locals intercepted a convoy of the U.S.-led coalition in the northeastern Syrian governorate of al-Hasakah.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the convoy was intercepted near the towns of Abu Qasayeb and al-Rahayah al-Sawda in northern al-Hasakah.

“The locals of the villages of Abu Qasayeb and al-Rahayah al-Sawda in the area of Tell Hamis in al-Qamishli countryside intercepted a convoy of American occupation forces consisting of five armored vehicles, forcing it to retreat,” the state-run agency’s reporter said.

Several similar incidents happened during the last few weeks, especially in the countryside of the city of al-Qamishli. In some cases, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops supported the locals intercepted U.S. forces.

A recent report by the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed that the U.S, which still has around 500 U.S. personnel in northeast Syria, is working to strengthen its influence in the region.

The SAA and locals in northeast Syria are apparently coordinating their efforts to limit the movement of U.S. forces. This can be clearly seen near oil fields in al-Hasakah, where U.S. forces conduct patrols on a regular basis.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The Kurds and their US allies don’t always see eye to eye, the SDF and SDC sometimes even let the cat out of the bag, and these remarks from a prominent member of the Syrian Democratic Council tell the true story concerning Kurdish sentiments.

“During an interview on Tuesday, there was a heated discussion about the situation in Idlib between the channel’s presenter Muath Muharib and the Europe-based SDC media official.

During the heated exchange, Ibrahim described two out of four million of residents in Idlib as “terrorists” that deserved to die.”

LOL, that was a big bold statement wasn’t it, Erdogan will be ringing up Trump and complaining about this slip of the tongue for sure, but I’ll bet Assad would’ve been grinning from ear to ear when he heard it, LOL.
