In Video: Russian Forces Blocked US Convoy In Syria’s Al-Hasakah

Screen grab from RusVesna’s video.

Russian forces have blocked a US military patrol which violated the deconfliction mechanism in northeastern Syria, RusVesna.SU reported on June 20.

The patrol, which consisted of four Oshkosh M-ATV and International MaxxPro armored vehicles, approached the M4 highway near the town of Tell Tamr in the northern countryside of al-Hasakah without giving Russian forces a prior notice.

“The US military moved without prior notice to the Russian side and violated the deconfliction mechanism,” RusVesna’s report reads.

Under agreements with Turkey and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Russian forces are responsible for securing the strategic highway, which links al-Hasakah with Raqqa and Aleppo.

In response to this violation, Russian forces blocked the highway in front of the US patrol, forcing it to turn back. A video of the incident was shared by RusVesna.

This was not the first such incident. Russian forces confronted US troops on several occasions since being deployed in northeastern Syria more than a year ago.

The US is slowly losing its influence in northeastern Syria, despite the fact that most of the region is tightly controlled by the SDF. Earlier this week, a US patrol was blocked by civilian supporters of the Damascus government in northern al-Hasakah.

The Russians have long broken the “exceptional confidence” of the US military.

Abraham Lincoln

The USSA slave army is not longer capable of fighting a land war against a well armed opponent.

Lone Ranger

Good joke…

saoirse52

It is indeed a good joke, but we’re not laughing with you but at the pathetic Americans !

Ace

Not really but they have limited US freedom of action and that is unpleasant for the US political class who think they can go anywhere and do anything. The US must get out of Syria. I am sure the troops do not like the impossible situation they are in.

Ace

PS – I have never heard of this “exceptional confidence.”. Is this a term from outer space?

jens holm

The Russians are there to integrate parts of Syria to the Turks. By that the Turks can pay for the planned nuke powerplant, they sold to them.

Lira for Rubels hip hip

You shouldn’t take too much LSD during heatwaves…

Ace

That is hilarious. All the other comments below are hilarious too.

jens holm

I dont think so. I try to see lines. This is a very relevant one.

And yes I take side too. As long as You kill each other, You dont come here.

So far only 500.000 are dead. I havnt conted them myself.

And who are those people including You ??? Its disfunctional people complaining about UN dont work well and the dollar again will collapse next week and Jews do it and has apartheid.

If those two Marslanders find leftovers from life the last days of it probatly has a model like in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran, Turkey and Yemen.

yuri

experts show withdrawals from drug addiction is painful! I feel your pain.

jens holm

Thats not related to the article too

Peter Wallace

Pity your brain wasn’t integrated with the hand that writes your comments so that maybe some of them make some sort of sense. But then you work so hard at being stupid nothing would work anyway. Jens wasn’t born stupid , he achieved it through hard work .

Arch Bungle

Don’t you ever get tired of hanging out on SF all day and telling obvious lies?

Jaime

I wish they were lies, for lies require intelligence. However, this jens is the most stupid entity I have ever encountered. His babblings make no sense. They are no lies. They are bovine utterances.

jens holm

Not for all. I very much write here for those which are able to learn about the world as it is in Our western context in a sober way.

The reason for You sometimes dont understand is two. You are not raised for learning but copying and too often putting better hay to the cars. And next You are kept down by not only propaganda but also punishments of the worst kind.

Thats why.

Well, maybee You can learn camels to fly even they want too. You seemes raised to hide Your oppions until You are very old deciders, and when You are old, You are a very Leaders for Your sheep

jens holm

The problem is I dont lie. I refer to facts and oppinions in west and also has my own. You only seemes to be allowed to know west by TV propganda driven by Your masters.

People here almost always refer to CNN as CIA. But its ignored CNN is one of several big channells, which often write the opposite and very different like Fox, NBC, ABC etc.

Thats how narrowmind You are.

Even if I try to tell You about my country as an example, I know very well, You are just like the Russians telling Berlin was the Potemkin of “West”.

You just simply dont learn to learn Yourself even there is internet in seconds to the whole world both ways. By that You cant even copy Our good parts and it doeant matter if they are from India, China, USA … not even in simple things like improved farming. Not even in production, where 80% of Our jobs are not in the ineffective old days family structures. Not even in a more updated state, which has to have more deciders in many more level to work. Not even in being able to educate people to do advanced jobs. Not even able to take oil and gas up Yourself and make simple plastic bags for it.

Vomen and Girls mainly not even get the very low rights given by the holy Choran but old mens version, where those old men mainly has not written a single line themself, because they cant.

Prayers should start with : It is told, there is written … 5 times a day. Or You, as we learn Your many anaælfabeths to read, write and understand danish and then give them a modern and a traditionel version to support for their own faith. We and the muslims here even makes preparing for Islam stories for the children. Some are well known in the Chritian and jewish world like Moses, Solomon, Noah and Samson lightly added Islam in a smooth and gentle childs version.

Poor Jens and his parallel universe….which he inhabits all alone !

yuri

if u sell enough cheese you can make us richer, now that a barrel of oil is 74 USD

jens holm

Last year we exported almost 400.000 tons of cheese. We need less and less oil and gas because up to 54% of all energy heating and cooling included is done by windpower and solarelectricity as well.

Soon we will sell You water and wont get paid in oil and gas:)

A Clown like you

Al-Hasakah was blocked by ISIS before and before Russian and SAA come in, the fuking SDF terrorists blockade Al-Hasakah. They had to water or power and it was done by Kurds…for those who suck Kurd’s dic* remember they are not better than yankees or Turkic-isis.

jens holm

You as minimum has to blame the Turks too. Assads do exact same thimngg and even has blown a dam awy in a western province.

But the censur took it – again – didnt it. Sober is not even in Your vocabulary just as honor and respect.

Lone Ranger

CIA trolls are crying and raging 🤗

yuri

Jens, corrupt amerikan shit, hindu must increase dosage of haldol, since no therapeutic treatment for cowardice yet created by pentagon

jens holm

Nice to have qualified indications for that and fx links. But NEVER EVER.

KnowTheJew

“Sorry Jew controlled occupiers and oppressors, no oil to steal, or schools or wedding parties this way for you to bomb and kill. Maybe you missed something back where you came from.”

jens holm

This is not about oil. Oil is a tool, because Assads hardly produce anything else.

Those US soldiers were probably happy they didn’t have to wear those gay looking shirties.

tobi999

for you the Russian shirts are gay….well they have a reason to be strips like that in 1cm above each other but will never find out………it can save lifes…….thats why they kept it from the soviets….but you prefer the rainbow colours….I know :)

Yamil Perez

They look like female fashion shirts for Victoria’s Secret.

jens holm

I just see a hot day and You might need a job.

Yamil Perez

I see some dudes who by the way they look would rather be in California.

jens holm

They probatly is inspired by Your behind;)

Yamil Perez

It’s their behind that is at question here.

yuri

you are seeking an LGBT amerikan boyfriend?

Yamil Perez

With those gay looking shirties, no wonder why half the Russian army wants to defect from Putin.

jens holm

They dont look gay to me.

I connect them with navy clothe and they are marines.

White and blue are marine colors inspired by the sea and the sky.

Yamil Perez

I get it now. There are Gap stores in Damascus.

Adef Gomz

SE que un come-mierda pocetero como vos lo va a entender[EL COMENTARIO EN ESPAñOL]! Por Dios no espera ver a un sal;tamuros, letrinoamericano escribir tanta mierda y todavia mas demostrar lo IGNORANTE que es… Ya me gustaria ver como quedaria tu puta cara, despues de decirle a un marinero de la infanteria naval Rusa, que su TELNYASHKA es un articulo PARA maricas!

jens holm

Yourifobia is here again.

jens holm

Tiny machos treating their wifes bad use this weapon all the time. Their worst nightmare is, they might be gays themself or anyone else do it.

Its so pathetic funny. Many try to look like bodybuilders by filling up themself with gas. The worst with them is, when it comes out.

When Russians comes to Syria they often run away because they smell leftovers from the Bolsjoj Theater.

Yamil Perez

Or isn’t just better to wear black, not something that looks like clowns in the middle of the desert?

Adef Gomz

VAYA! come-mierda ignorante resultates IMBECIL LETRINOAMERICANO! el uniforme de gala (desfiles y actos protocolarios) de esos ‘maricas rusos’ es negro, como el negro/azul es el color de los “marines” gringos [marine dress blue] mejor amarrate la pezuña a la pata del mueble y deja de escribir tanta estupidez que denota a leguas tu ignorancia. Por lo menos antes de escribir tanta mierda ACCEDE PRIMERO a la puta “STUPID-pedia” alias wikipedia, para que dejes de reforzar la idea de que en america latina somos igual de imbeciles e ignorantes como vos. PSD: El color negro lo utilizaron los abuelos de los que hoy estan bloqueando a los verdaderos ladrones, asesinos y terroristas, cuando combatieron a los nazis en crimea y a los japonese en Khalkhin Gol y las islas kuriles:comment image

Hahahaha good

Tocqueville long ago observed that individualism (USA the most, followed by other anglophone nations) produces a “self doubting (ontologically insecure, conformist (over conformist semi-automatons–per Riesman, Slater, Meszaros, etc) antagonistic and anxious (neurotic/fearful) people”. voila ===the amerikan

yuri

after anglophone nations—dimmark, Sweden the most individualistic societies

jens holm

Jews too.

jens holm

There we go again. You dont mention that individualism is worth nothing unless responsability is added.

With no responsability we were/are anarchists.

As we see for great parts of the west the system is very good for optimizing almost anything.

The difference to Skandinavia is no pictures and ID at the officies because You then focus better at Your work and company.

Danes put in family photos and private things. We think the family remind us who we work for.

Its very visible in working Hours only are 37 and we have a lot of education and fx off days for taking care of ourt sick children.

Even we has much less hours we work harder and produce more then most. here individualisme is very important, because You are raised to be resposible and continue working even no boss see and tell You.

It also makes very good soldiers because the units and the unitmemebers are able to use opportunities, when thye are ( as Clausewitch). In weapons on the ground its same thing. The soldiers are relative light and cheep armed, but they have exact whats needed and handle it wellin a very flexible way.

Thats why we fast can be transported to destinations far away all equipment included.
