As shown in the images below, the trucks were moving a large quantity of oil to these neighboring countries:

That’s what thieves do and the US Coalition of Terror is the biggest crime gang the world has suffered under.

All at the behest of Israhell which long ago promised the Kurds their own country. However, it leaves the cost and the grunt work to the U.S. military

I’m not to harsh on the local smugglers – they have to make money and feed their children and families after all. It is wrong to paint them as US agents. They are local residents who have barely other ways to make money in the Deir-Ezour province.

The genius who published this map put the red dot at the wrong place.
