Al-Qamishly | Russian police intercept U.S. patrol
Syrian Observatory sources have confirmed that Russian police deployed their vehicles across the road to the eastern flank of Al-Qamishly city, preventing a U.S. patrol from entering the city. Meanwhile, tension is prevailing in the area, amid flight of aircraft over the area.
It is noteworthy that this is the first time for Russian troops to intercept American forces, preventing them from crossing to somewhere in Syria, as it was familiar that the U.S. forces were the ones blocking the way of Russian forces.
On April 28, Observatory activists monitored U.S. cargo planes carrying military and logistical equipment, landing at Qasrak base in rural Al-Qamishli and Al-Omar oil field in rural Deir Ezzor.
Moreover, a column of 300 U.S. trucks headed towards Tal al-Baydar base in rural Al-Hasakeh, carrying military aid, weapons and ammunition.
While on April 23, SOHR sources reported that a column of 35 oil trucks and vehicles carrying logistical supplies affiliated to U.S. forces passed through Al-Qamishli, heading to Hemo base in the city’s western sector, where part of the cargo was unloaded. The column headed then toward Tal al-Baydar in rural Al-Hasakeh.
