MOSCOW (Dispatches) – Militant groups have become more active in Syria in areas controlled by the coalition led by the United States, Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit, deputy head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria, says.
“In the eastern part of Syria, in the territory controlled by the U.S.-led coalition, the activities of radical groups have intensified,” Kulit said.
The Syrian government never officially requested the United States deploy troop in the country, and Damascus has not approved the American presence.
Syrian President Bashar Assad has been condemning the actions of the U.S.-led coalition in eastern Syria amid reports that American forces are engaged in looting Syrian oil and wheat and transporting terrorists from Syria to bases in Iraq.
Meanwhile, the United States has dispatched truckloads of military and logistical equipment to Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah, less than a day after rocket fire targeted the largest base run by American occupation forces in eastern Syria.
Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that a convoy of 37 trucks together with eleven trailers crossed the Waleed border crossing on Sunday and headed toward U.S. positions in Tell Hamis town.
The sources added that three armored vehicles of U.S. occupation forces, and as many sport utility vehicles belonging to the U.S.-sponsored and Kurdish-led militants from the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) escorted the convoy since the first moment it entered the Syrian territory.
Earlier in the day, SANA reported that a barrage of rockets had targeted the U.S. base located in the al-Omar oil field in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr, sending smoke spiraling up in the sky.
There were no immediate reports about casualties or the extent of damage caused.
