The US Army changed its tactics in confronting the Russian military in Syria and made new provocations in the province of Al-Hasakah. This is reported by the publication Russian Spring, close to the Russian Ministry of Defense, which published a video from the scene.
According to him, officers of the military police of the Russian Armed Forces conducted another patrol of settlements in the province of Al-Hasakah, when two American AH-64 Apache combat helicopters flew to escort them. Correspondents note that the actions of the US military violated the agreements on the interaction of the parties.
“Apparently, the command of the International Anti-Terrorist Coalition, after serious physical and mental trauma to its servicemen, does not abandon attempts to control the movement of Russian patrols, only now without creating obstacles on the ground,” the newspaper said.
As the authors of the article note, the behavior of the American military has changed a lot: after the ram of an armored vehicle by the military police, the US Army does not appear in the path of Russian patrols. However, they are now tracking them from attack helicopters.
On August 24, a conflict broke out between the American and Russian military in Syria. Several Russian-flagged military vehicles overtook two US-flagged APCs and blocked their way. The Russian Ministry of Defense later said that the international coalition had been warned in advance about the passage of the Russian military police convoy, but the Americans tried to block the Russian patrol contrary to the agreements. After that, the Russians did everything “to further fulfill the task.”
