Note: The most recent American casualty, who died Friday, was killed in a road accident, only a day after a shooting incident involving his unit and 2 Russian MI35 helicopters.
Our sources say Moore was part of an American unit that was racing along a narrow Syrian road trying to block a Russian convoy that was intercepting an ISIS oil delivery to Turkey.
Please note, we do not expect members of America’s military to make personal judgment calls on which missions they take and which they don’t. There is no reason whatsoever to diminish the loss of Antonio Moore simply because he served a cause without any merit whatsoever. We have all been there at VT.
Avia.Pro: The United States suffered the first casualties when patrolling “its territory” in Syria. An attempt by American servicemen once again to intercept a Russian military convoy ended in the death of an American soldier.
According to sources, Antonio Moore, a member of the US Special Operations Command, died as a result of a rollover of an American armored car heading to the area of one of the American checkpoints in Hasaka province.

According to a number of sources, the armored car, in which the American soldier was, left the territory of one of the military bases in the province of Deir ez-Zor and went to the region of the Syrian province of Hasaka. Nevertheless, as a result of an unknown set of circumstances (according to some sources, a small munition was blown up – approx. Ed.), The vehicle capsized. As a result, the American soldier died.
Representatives of the U.S. Department of Defense have not yet commented on the incident, however, sources say that we can really talk about undermining an armored car on a mine installed by terrorists, although at the moment there is no documentary evidence of this data.
It should be clarified that US troops continue to block roads to Russian military patrols while moving the latter in northeastern Syria.
