Details of the Great Victory of the US military convoy supported by warplanes over Syrian villagers in Khirabat Amu, the Syrian province of al-Hasakah, continue appearing online.
On February 12, the US military convoy was blocked by angry locals in the village of Khirabat Amu and found itself in the center of a firefight with them after US troops had reportedly shot and killed a local 14yo boy participating in the protest.
After this, the US-led coalition send warplanes to support its surrounded troops. Nonetheless, the convoy was able to flee the area only after the Syrian Army and the Russian Military Police had deployed to put an end to the violence.
The video above shows the reaction of people in the Russian Military Police vehicle that arrived to the scene during the incident:

Voice 2: Who?
Voice 3: American
Voice 1: Where is he firing? He’s firing at a house. There is a machine gun (in the house). It (machine gun) fires above.
Voice 2: … at the turret (of the US vehicle)
Voice 1: Wat Americans are doing… blockhead fighters…. dumbfucks

Voice 4: Nobody will understand.
Voice 5: He’s moving close. There is nobody to go. His vehicle…

The next video shows how the Russian and Syrian personnel intervened to put an end to this chaos:
The Pentagon immidiately declared a victory over the villagers caliming that actions of US forces were a kind of ‘self-defense’. Later US media guys invented some powerful pro-Assad militia that attacked innocent US personnel. In this version, the local boy also turned into an “adult male combatant”.
