Syrian War Report – December 17, 2019: Assad Sends Warning To US Forces In Syria

The US-led coalition is selling oil looted at oilfields in southern Deir Ezzor to Turkey, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview with China’s Phoenix Television. Assad said that “the Turkish regime plays a direct part in selling the oil, previously with Jabhat al-Nusra, later with ISIS and today with the Americans.” The President said that there are no prospects for the US presence in the country and if US troops remain, they will face a popular resistance and “pay the price”.

The US-led coalition is selling oil looted at oilfields in southern Deir Ezzor to Turkey, Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview with China’s Phoenix Television. Assad said that “the Turkish regime plays a direct part in selling the oil, previously with Jabhat al-Nusra, later with ISIS and today with the Americans.” The President said that there are no prospects for the US presence in the country and if US troops remain, they will face a popular resistance and “pay the price”.

Despite Assad remarks, by now US forces had faced little difficulties with their presence in the oil-rich part of eastern Syria. No attacks on US troops by some local resistance or major security incidents of this kind took place during the last few months. However, this may change if the situation in the region escalates.

Over the past week, the Syrian Army has expanded its military presence in northeastern Syria, especially along the M4 highway. The only security incident between Syrian and US troops happened near the al-Qamishli airport, where a Syrian Army unit blocked a US military convoy and forced it to turn around. After this, the US military send reinforcements to the countryside of the city.

On December 15, Turkish President Recep Erdogan repeated his claims that Russia and the United States have not facilitated the complete withdrawal of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, the core of the Syrian Democratic Forces, from the agreed safe zone area. He claimed that there are still “terrorists” in Manbij and “Turkey is full of resolve on fighting against terrorism”. Mimicking Assad, Erdogan said that the “terrorists”, the term used in Turkey to describe Kurdish armed groups, sell oil to the Assad government.

    Russia, Iran and Syria should join hands and teach the international thieves in the U.S. that they must learn and obey the above commandments and international laws even if it leads to war. Indulging a criminal only makes matters worse. The outlaws in the U.S. need to receive some serious damage to major cities in order that they might learn lessons since they are slow learners. All other countries involved in this criminal oil theft must also be seriously attacked. This is the only kind of language these international criminals might understand since the U.N. is impotent.

    • The U.N. is totally impotent and worthless and a total waste of money and time. It is no better than the former League of Nations. Abolish it. Stop funding it. Let the best nation win. Let the international criminal nations U.S. and Israel lose big time.

    • All nations of the world must immediately boycott the U.S. Stop sending them any goods or services especially oil. They will be on their knees in a month. Boycott these international criminals until they say UNCLE. Such a lesson is long overdue.
