BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The U.S. forces were filmed this week attempting to drive a Russian military vehicle off the road in northeastern Syria.
The incident, which was believed to have taken place in the Al-Qamishli countryside, resulted in a tense moment along a roadway in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
In a video that has since surfaced on social media, the U.S. forces can be seen trying to unsuccessfully drive the Russian military vehicle off the road.

These events in northeastern Syria have almost become a daily occurrence, with several incidents reported in the last two weeks alone.
While the U.S. and Russian forces maintain open communication in Syria, they have been involved in a Cold War-like military buildup in the northeastern part of the country, as they seek to gain the upper-hand against one another, especially in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
