The Department of Defense has denied the publication of some Western media outlets that US forces stationed in Syria were blocking the work of the Russian military patrol in Hasek province. This was announced by the head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, Major General Yuri Borenkov.
Publications of selected foreign Internet resources about alleged obstruction of Russian patrolling in Hasek province by US forces are not true
