UPDATE: The US-affilated Kurdish media already started claiming that ‘regime forces’ attacked the peaceful US convoy in the area. So, US troops ‘had to respond’.
US forces shot and killed a 14yo teenager at a checkpoint near the town of Kherbet Ammo in the eastern part of Qamishli province, according to Syria’s news agency SANA.
Other sources said that the incident happened whena group of Kuridsh civilians tried to block a convoy of the US military in a move of protest to the ongoing US military occupation of northeastern Syria.
The SAA prevented today a US convoy from crossing Khirbet Amo, south Qamishli, and the villagers supported the SAA and threw stones on the US patrol which shot & killed 1 civilian.

This incident demonstrates the behaviour of US forces. During the joint Russian-Turkish patrols in northern Syria, Kurdish radicals repeatedly threw stones, gasoline bombs and tried to block Turkish and Russian vehicles. Nonetheless, nobody was killed.
