BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside several villages from Hamo, blocked a U.S. military convoy near the city of Al-Qamishli in northeastern Syria this week.

According to a field report, the Syrian Army and the villages blocked a convoy of approximately 11 U.S. military vehicles and forced them to turn around and find another route.

“The people of Hamo village and the Syrian Arab Army at a checkpoint inside the village in the Al-Qamishli countryside intercepted a convoy from the American occupation forces consisting of 11 vehicles and forced them from crossing and forcing them to retreat,” the state-owned Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

No video footage of photos were released from the incident.

Both the Syrian military and U.S. Armed Forces have blocked one another’s path on several occasions in northeastern Syria; however, neither side has engaged in firefights over these minor confrontations.

A rare instance of violence did occur earlier this year, when residents of a town in Al-Hasakah began attacking the U.S. forces, eventually resulting in one person killed.

Ojalá el ejercito Sirio retome confianza de los civiles en estas zonas dominados por SDF y en futuro pueda recuperar zonas petroleras robados por EE.UU. con la complicidad de SDF.
