Smoke billowing from a Syrian government ferry that was targeted by U.S. Coalition and SDF gunfire.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition and their allies from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have struck at least two Syrian government ferries that were transporting oil to Syria from eastern Syria..

According to reports from the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the U.S. Coalition and the SDF both targeted the Syrian government boats with heavy machine gun fire in front of the town of Al-Shuhayl.

Pro-SDF accounts later released photos showing smoke rising from one of the ferries that were targeted by their machine gun fire.

This is the second time this month that the U.S. Coalition has targeted a Syrian government ferry that was transporting oil from eastern Syria.

In addition to targeting the Syrian government ferries, the Syrian Democratic Forces were also reported to have sent reinforcements to the eastern bank of the Euphrates River Valley near Baghouz Fouqani.

The reason for the targeting of these government ferries is due to the ongoing sanctions imposed by Washington on Damascus.

So Kurds / SDF are happily using the International (FUKUS) Coalition to target and attack the Syrian State as it seeks to move Syrian Oil across the Euphrates for use by Syrians using the argument of the International (American) Sanctions against Syria as a pretext? So now, according to the US and their vassal-kurds, Syria cannot even use its own oil for itself and its People cos of these sanctions?
Bullcrap!
Time for SAA & Syrian & Russian Air-forces together with Iranian & Hezbollah Forces to blow those Kurd lapdogs to smithereens.

Kurds have never been faithful to the country.
They have short memories. They have not learned from the past, from history.. The day will come and the cursed Americans will let them down and they evade in helicopters like they did in Saigon.

Maybe Assad and his murdering thugs of the secret police and murderprisons should receive the first hard lesson. Thousands of documented murders in state prisons is more than enough.

Your masters killed millions of Iraqis for nothing. And they too struggled against your Wahhabi- Muslim brotherhood fanatic, supremacist brothers, like Syria has to do.

Que decepción, quedó atrás aquella resistencia del heroico pueblo Kurdo en Kobani, comparando con Stalingrado, ahora YPG convertido en instrumento del imperio.

Seems strange while there are roads able to travel oil much faster than boats…
