Syrian army blocks passage of US military convoy

Images broadcast on Syrian television showed soldiers and militiamen blocking a group of three armoured vehicles of the US occupying forces, which had to back down and change course.

The Damascus government repeatedly denounced the illegal presence of the US troops that it describes as an occupation and assured that they will be forced to leave the country due to the increase in popular resistance.

Meanwhile, Syrian Army specialists deactivated explosives that elements of the Islamic State, Daesh in Arabic, placed in a gas pipeline connection near the town of Sukhneh, on the road that leads to the historic city of Palmira.

During the preliminary investigations carried out by the competent authorities with the members of a terrorist group, recently captured in the Yabal Amour area, they confessed to having placed several explosive devices.
