BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 P.M.) – Russian armored vehicles managed to besiege an American military patrol in the Al-Hasakah countryside of northeastern Syria after a hot pursuit, while a Russian officer addressed the U.S. military regarding the legitimacy of the presence of both forces on Syrian soil.

The video shows how Russian armored vehicles surrounding the U.S. military vehicles, and also shows the panic and confusion of American soldiers and military personnel while the Russians came to them with the word “stop, don’t move.”

One of the Russian officers addressed a U.S. officer and said to him, “We are here on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic at the invitation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and you are on what basis here? You are occupiers.”

“He told the American to tell his generals that the Russians asked the patrol not to go after the them again,” the Russian officer said to the translator.

When Trump got elected, I had high hopes we’d get out of Syria. The average American is sick of the constant wars. Our country is falling apart, and all our foreign policy is geared towards is doing Israel’s bidding…

Perhaps the Russians should have gone after the ISIS terrorists instead of bombing and killing the innocent Syrians. That’s what the US Army is doing there, fighting ISIS and Al Queda. The US forces don’t need a invitation By Assad to do that.

What are you on about? An official invite to the Russians by the UN recognized government of Syria has much more legitimacy than the uninvited Americans interference.
Trump has repeatedly said that ISIS has been defeated and that he was going to withdraw US troops. The American raison d’etre for being in Syria is therefore null and void. You should notice however, that the Americans have seized Syria’s oil fields and are stealing the oil and selling it in Iraq. The Americans are nothing more than hypocrites and thieves like their Israeli protege.

Muricans were invited by the de facto Kurd state since Assad’s force flee Daesh and Kurds fought to gain territory on Daesh, then coalition was “invited” by Daesh’s terror attacks everywhere, they were invited for a fight… This is absolutely legitimate TOO… Moreover, before some idiots willing the Yankees to go, have you noticed what happened when they started to withdraw? Turks+Jihadis invaded the vacuum! So, let’s clean Idlib, Afrin, Aleppo provinces before even considering having Syrian state being let in charge of these areas again since there is still huge area to cleanse and having to manage the east-Euphrates… Read more »

Jackthehack : Assad wasn’t so into killing innocent civilians, except if you consider that armed civilians are innocent… Thus, it’s obvious that Russians were much more going after al-Nusra (which once was the Syrian branch of Daech before switching to Qaeda) while US coalition + SDF kicked Daesh bütts in Syria and US coalition + Iraqis did so in Iraq.
Actually, the states behind the Daesh mess are Iran andTurkey. Iran as the founder, Turkey for buying stolen oil.

R y seriously?)) US are fighting ISIS???? 😂 lol. They created, trained and supporting them!!!
If they are fighting ISIS how it’s happens US always next to ISIS at “their” territory instead to protect Syrian people and Assad.
And who was in charge of bombing and killing Syrians before Russia stepped in?
