BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – For the second time in ten days, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has blocked the U.S. military’s troops from bypassing their checkpoints in northern Syria.

According to a military report from Aleppo, a U.S. military convoy was attempting to bypass a Syrian Army checkpoint south of Manbij, when the latter refused to allow them access to the road.

The U.S. military convoy was forced to turn around and return to Manbij city, the report added.

It appears that the U.S. special forces had taken a wrong turn near Manbij, which resulted in their troops reaching a Syrian Army checkpoint at the town of Tal Aswad in northern Aleppo.

U.S. has no reason or right to be there. They could have got themselves annihilated.

“U.S. has no reason or right to be there” => Would you prefer the Turks with their al-Zenki friends? You know, those who behead 11y old children… “They could have got themselves annihilated.” => IMHO, a drafted SAA soldier is not very hot for fücking with DEVGRU, Delta Force or US Army Rangers… ouch… And let’s suppose the checkpoint wins or even demolishes only 1 or 2 APCs… They’d better run : if there isn’t already an UCAV loitering over, the F-15E won’t be long to come and there is surely already a sat watching, so even if you flee…… Read more »

Agree. The US would have retaliated. I am grateful no one was injured or killed. I prefer all players to leave and pray the Syrian people have peace.

Your constant pro-zionists rants have become VERY tedious lately.
There is absolutely NO difference between alzenki, haliphates or US/UK/EU – they are all zionist thugs. All of them must be eradicated – the sooner the better.

You realise full well Daeshbag that without the criminal interference of the US,France/UK et al the US Coalition of terror , that there would have been no civil war in Syria and even now the US Coalition of Terror is doing all it can to prolong the killing by continuing to pay and support Takfiri mercenaries who are largely high on drugs such as Captagon. The common denominator in al of this carnage is of course Israel whose Zionist leaders continue to appropriate the lands and homes of Palestinians with the premise that ‘God ‘ gave all the land to… Read more »

The US Elite special forces made a wrong turn, it must of been one of the transgender female soldiers reading the map and giving directions. The SAA can’t hit these mugs without incurring serious repercussions but the Arab militias can, so long as they hide in plain sight and take things slowly. Isis may have been a bunch of bloodthirsty murderers but their hit and run tactics were second to none, hopefully the Arab militias were studying what they were doing and are thinking about doing the same to the US and French. Not the SDF though, at least not… Read more »

The UIS and the Western Judeo-Islamic coalition are the biggest threat for the humanity, in fact more, a biggest threat for the survival of humanity. Just imagine this satanic coalition controling 100 % of this earth, the humanity and the nations of this world will fall and will disappear as the Western Roman Empire in 476 AD !
