On July 11, checkpoints of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) stopped several U.S. military vehicles in three different villages in the northern al-Hasakah countryside.

The Syrian News Agency said the U.S. vehicles were intercepted by Syrian troops in al-Sybat, Tell Shamiran and Mansaf Tahtani. The vehicles withdrew to their bases after failing to enter the villages.

Several similar incidents took place in northern al-Hasakah recently. A day earlier, army service members intercepted a U.S. convoy consisting of three vehicles in Mansaf Tahtani. Prior to that, a U.S. convoy was stopped next to the town of Tell Tamr.

So far, U.S. forces have not attempted to use force against the SAA and local pro-government fighters. In most cases, Syrian and American service members exchange slurs and threats. These incidents always end up with U.S. forces retreating.

U.S. forces can’t move freely in northern al-Hasakah anymore, especially around tell Tamr and al-Qamishli. The SAA’s influence in the region is without a doubt growing. Damascus is restoring its relations with the locals there with much success.

    The Syrians are gentlemen, for now they just turn them back, we will see when they start attacking them, and all the brave soldiers will ask to come back running.

  • I admire the patience of these SAA members, how they just don’t want to put a bullet in their heads after destroying their country is beyond me, still much support to the resistance!

  • LR captain

    the US loosing strength and support, yes i know that an RPG round will blow them up and those convoy will be killed.

    However there are still many military installations the can being fire power to bare. 120 missiles could be flung at SAA bases and followed by to more waves. Then real boots on the ground not american but NATO allies.

    Unless the SAA is willing to throw 20 missiles at al-tanf and march 12,000 troops into northeastern syria. This tit for tat shit will continue. If you gonna hit them, hit them heard enough that they can’t respond for a week.

      They don’t have the balls for boots on the ground because they would end up under the ground,that wouldn’t go down very well with the US public,the US public are ok with massive bombing of poor Countries, unless they end up like in Vietnam losing hundreds of aircraft.

        We are okay with our beloved Government committing crimes against humanity ? I did not know that. No one I know is okay with it, I’m not okay with it. I’m a US citizen for a few more minutes, a subject soon as USMCA was passed by our Bolshevik run Government last week. Trump had already signed it. Now US Canada, and Mexico are just like EU.
        You can talk shit about US Government, all you want, I know better than you do how corrupt it is. But no one wants to hear your bullshit towards US citizens.
        If that’s your real name, your own Government is as corrupt as US Government. If you’re a Zionist Khazar, that’s changed their name to blend in, go fuck yourself.

    • Why my friend do you think, that the NATO would get involved in the conflict, following such an incident? Art. 5 of the Northatlantic treaty does not cover Syria asn described in art. 6, in addition to that, the treaty does not cover attacks on your forces in a country you are actually intervening in.

        1st cause its Americans
        2nd the US has other troops such as french and British troops in support roles there too. Thus if the US comes under attack France and Britain will justify strikes as protecting their “foreign aid” workers. since these 3 are permanent members of UN security council they can authorize deployment of Nato forces as legitimate.

        • 1. Sure, the US has in the past and will in the future always have compliant western support for criminal airstrikes, mostly without any legal fundament, but a full intervention would never get public support in Europe, where still some governments are dependent on a positive vote in their parliaments.(Like UK, Germany f.e.)
          2. The security council of the UN still has Russia and China as permanent members with veto power, these two nations learned the lessons from the resolution on Libya, which they did not vote for or against.
