In the northeast of the Syrian province of Al-Hasakah, in the area of the settlement of Ain Dewar, local residents again prevented the passage of a patrol of the Russian military police.
This could possibly be caused by an “American trail” or there could even be accusations “American servicemen disguised as local residents,” but the Americans themselves confirm that this is a US zone of influence and they support any efforts to block Russian initiatives.
There are numerous photographs of the citizens blocking the Russian patrol, as well as a video.
Later on, another video was shared showing how the patrol was blocked.
Correspondents of local media with expensive equipment, apparently, “quite by accident” were at the scene.
Previously, local journalists, including those working for MSM outlets, had already been present there, by pure accident, naturally, to cover the story about the Russian military in the area.
Just weeks earlier a US helicopter chased after a Russian patrol around the same area, and a Russian helicopter had to intercept it.
Almost exactly a month earlier, U.S. forces intercepted a unit of the Russian Military Police that was conducting a patrol in the northern al-Hasakah countryside in northeast Syria, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
“A US military patrol took position on the M4 highway near the town of al-Qahtaniyah in the outskirt of al-Qamishli, to prevent Russian vehicles from crossing the highway,” the monitoring group said in a report.
