The Russian centre for Syria reconciliation says the US forces in the northeast part of the country are supplying the local groups with large quantities of weaponry and ammunition that is being used against civilians and Turkish troops.

“The US command in the region is intensively saturating the territory east of the Euphrates river with weapons and ammunition. Since the beginning of 2020, 13 military convoys have arrived from Iraq to Syria, which included over 80 armored vehicles and more than 300 trucks loaded with various types of weapons, ammunition and materiel”, Rear Adm. Oleg Zhuravlev said in a daily briefing.

Zhuravlev stressed that the weapon supplies are used both during clashes of numerous militant groups on the territory east of Euphrates and against Turkish troops in northern Syria.

According to Zhuravlev, due to the severe humanitarian situation and constant attacks by militants, civilians are leaving the northeastern region of the country and moving to territories under the control of the Syrian government.

Earlier, Sham FM broadcaster reported that more than 50 US military vehicles arrived in the northeastern province of al-Hasakah from Iraq.

The US forces stationed in Syria also reportedly started the construction of a new military base in the oil-rich al-Hasakah, supposedly with the aim of preventing Russian forces from reaching the Rmelan oil field.

Syria has been engulfed in a devastating civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting against various opposition groups, as well as militant factions, including those of Daesh* and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly known as Al-Nusra Front).

I can not argue. The simple and easy way to end war is to stop sending arms and troops. Those responsible do not live in the war zone and are not held accountable, at least in this lifetime. God deliver United States from meddlesome wars.

Are you sure? 1 million people were killed mostly with machetes 26 years ago in Rwanda… Even stones and rocks would be used if people want to fight!

War profiteers aren’t interested in ending war.

The various foreign countries interfering in Syria are playing games.
The GCC states are crudely attempting “whack a ‘Shite’ mole”;
Israel has been long playing Sim City “The Greater Israel project”;
Turkey poorly playing “neo-Ottoman 3D Chess”;
the USA now openly playing Monopoly with a concentration on Kurdish “hotel” building and grabbing Middle-Eastern oil assets.

ROFL! And Russia supplies the Syriian regime in its fight against Turkish invasion…
BTW, Russia HAS ALSO SUPPLIED YPG with weapons in the past, and so did Bashar.
Does the Russian centre for Syria reconciliation abuses the widely available Lebanese hashish?
With Trump’s recent remarks, it sounds like everybody is getting schizophrenic.
