Al-Hasakah | US military patrol tours areas around Al-Malikiyah city
SOHR activists have monitored a routine US military patrol roaming in areas around Al-Malikiyah city (Dayrik) near the Syria-Turkey border in north-eastern Al-Hasakah.
On July 16, Observatory activists monitored Russian patrol of six vehicles heading from Al-Qamishli airbase to Al-Malikiyyah town, attempting to reach Smelka crossing on the border with Kurdistan Region of Iraq. As always, US forces blocked the Russian patrol near Shukr Khaj and the junction of Rubarya village. The US forces also set several roadblocks on the road to the border crossing.
