Routine patrols | US forces tour surrounding areas of Tal Barrak in rural Al-Hasakah
Syrian Observatory activists have monitored US forces patrolling the surrounding areas of Tal Barrak town in north-eastern Al-Hasakah, as a part of US routine movements in NE Syria region.
On September 16, Observatory sources monitored a U.S. military patrol stationed on the “M4” road near Al-Qahtaniyya town in Al-Qamishli countryside in order to prevent Russian vehicles from passing on the road. In the meantime two American and two Russian helicopters were seen flying over the region. This action came as part of the ongoing Russian-American skirmishes and tension in northern and eastern Syria.
