On September 29th, Russian troops broke through a US blockade and entered eastern Syria, erecting a checkpoint along a road in Hasaka.
The Russian military convoy, despite the opposition of the Americans, managed to break through into the eastern part of northern Syria.
Earlier, in this direction, Russian troops experienced very serious pressure from the Americans, however, Russian servicemen managed to break through to this area.
The key event is the fact that a Russian military checkpoint was deployed in this direction, completely blocking the movement of Americans from Iraq.
The photographs presented show that the Russian military successfully reached the city of Derik, and began the construction of a checkpoint there, deploying additional defensive means and armored vehicles.
Despite the absence of official comments, experts believe that the Russian military intends to take full control of the northeastern part of Syria, blocking any access for the Americans here and at the same time blocking the paths of smuggling Syrian oil into neighboring Turkey.
According to Syrian media reports, local residents tried to create obstacles to the Russian military, however, given the fact that Russia operates in Syria with the official consent and under invitation of Damascus, the activities were carried on as normal.
The Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) also operate in the region of Hasaka in Deir Ezzor.
On September 29th, Syrian state outlet SANA reported that 2 SDF members were killed by unknown militants, following an attack on their positions in Hasaka.
On September 28th, 6 SDF members were killed in separate attacks on the axes of their movements in the vicinity of Ain Issa town and near Tal al-Samen town in the eastern countryside of Raqqa.
