A US military convoy has been forced to retreat from an area in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah after government soldiers blocked it, amid public anger at the deployment of foreign forces in the oil-rich region.

Syrian army troops, deployed at a security checkpoint near the village of al-Damkhiya southwest of Qamishli city, blocked the road and prevented the passage of US armored vehicles travelling along the strategic M4 highway.

The American troops were subsequently forced to turn around and go back in the direction they came from. There were no reports of clashes or injuries.
