On June 30, the Reverse Side of the Medal channel on Telegram shared footage from a recent road accident between US forces and Russian Military Police vehicles in Syria’s northeastern region.
The video shows a US International MaxxPro MRAB [Mine Resistant Ambush Protected] vehicle that had hit a Russian BTR-82a armored personnel carrier from the side. The accident was apparently minor as both vehicles appeared to be intact in the footage.
The Reverse Side of the Medal didn’t reveal when or specify in which part of northeastern Syria the road accident took place.
Such accidents are very common and they are usually the result of poor coordination between US and Russian forces operating in northeastern Syria.
Earlier this month, a unit of the Russian Military Police blocked a US military patrol which violated the deconfliction mechanism in northeastern Syria. The patrol approached the M4 highway in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah without giving a prior notice.
The situation in northeastern Syria is stable to some extent. However, the US constant attempts to expand its influence in the region are creating some security challenges.
