BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has intercepted another U.S. military convoy in the Al-Hasakah Governorate this week, as tensions between the two forces continue to increase.

According to reports, members of the Syrian Army intercepted an American military convoy at the Dardara Bridge, which is located between Tal Tamr and Abu Rasin in northern Al-Hasakah.

A field source told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) that “the army personnel stationed at the Al-Dardara Bridge on the road between Tel Tamr and Abu Rasin in the northern countryside of Al-Hasakah, intercepted an American convoy consisting of several armored vehicles, and forced them to retreat and return towards its bases in the region.”

Earlier this week, the Syrian Arab Army intercepted a U.S. military convoy that was attempting to travel along a road near the town of Tal Barak in Al-Hasakah.

While these standoffs are brief, they have become frequent in Al-Hasakah, especially after the arrival of the Russian Armed Forces.
