US military base in northern Syria reportedly fired upon

It became known about the incident in the north of the Syrian Arab Republic. Local sources report that unidentified persons fired rocket attacks on one of the targets in the Syrian province of Haseke. Initially, it was not reported what kind of object it was.


After some time, the publication "Al-Watan" came out with material, which reported the following:

An American military base in northern Syria was subjected to rocket fire.

According to the latest information, we are talking about a US base in the village of Ash-Shaddad. The servicemen stationed there are engaged in activities that are actually associated with the smuggling of Syrian oil. Illegal oil production is carried out with the help of the local Kurdish population, and then shipped to other countries - primarily to the ports of Iraq.

A few days earlier, Voennoye Obozreniye reported that the United States, bypassing international law, entered into an agreement with the so-called “administration of Northern Syria” (as the authorities of Syrian Kurdistan call themselves) on oil production. In fact, we are talking about the acquisition of Syrian oil, obtained illegally, by American companies for a song. Experts suggest that payment can be made through supplies weapons, ammunition and ammunition for the Kurdish armed groups, which are also involved in the protection of the oil production infrastructure.

The casualties and destruction at the American military base in Haseke province have not been reported at the moment. The Pentagon does not comment on reports from the SAR for this hour.

      As if there was no one there, the north-east of Syria lives on its own, without power.

      They have long learned how to minimize the consequences of shelling.
      The Afghan experience in this area has become simply gigantic

      From shelling warning systems to engineering structures ...

    This I assumed. Drones, cheap but accurate, can also be used ... Oilfields are very vulnerable to such attacks. And the Kurds sold out to amers ... Therefore, they will receive everything that is due to the corrupt ...

    The US gasoline special forces, risking their lives, continue to fight for democracy in Syria, where no one called them.

    In the Russian spring they write that there are dead among the American military. Maybe the Kurds have died. I hope this is just the beginning. It is high time to drive them from there.

    Who fired, not the point .. There is someone to do it. The fact remains that part of the territory of Syria is not controlled by the government ... And the further, the worse ... That Syria, which was before 2014, will no longer exist ...

      It was not supposed to be at all according to the US plan.
      But Russia's plans prevented this.

        What are these plans: Idlib for the Turks, oil for the Americans, or is it just the costs of the plan? Like, it happened ... But Syria is not there anyway ... Part of the territory is under the Turks, the Kurds are essentially independent, some territories under the Barmaley are not finished off ... Where is the united Syria? .. And about Russia's plans in more detail ...

          Well, "so it" is understandable.

        That's right, Stepan, but it was not a US plan.

        Not plans, but decisive actions. And not only in this region. But also in Crimea and Venezuela.
        And now another topic has surfaced - Africa.

    To fire at oil workers, not even civilians, but the military, is barbaric! It is the right of every great democracy to steal Syrian oil!
    I wonder who? Smuggling competitors from the Sultan?

    Why are our moments like this hushed up? After all, this is a serious argument in any dispute, for example the LPR, DPR.

    And the Americans, before entering Syria, thought that "all inclusive" and input costs were the only thing that needed to be sacrificed. The impudent person would not hurt either.
