US occupation warplanes have attacked a checkpoint for the Syrian Arab Army southeast of Qamishli, killing a soldier and injuring two others.
SANA news agency reported the attack on Monday, citing a military source.
“At 9:45 a.m., a US patrol tried to enter the area where one of our military formations is deployed in Qamishli countryside through Tal al-Zahab checkpoint, and the army personnel at the checkpoint prevented it from passing, therefore, the members of the US patrol opened several rounds of fire,” the source said.
“After about 30 minutes, two US warplanes attacked the army personnel at the checkpoint with heavy machineguns as a soldier was martyred and two others were injured,” the source added.
Since the US occupation forces established their bases, the locals in a number of villages in Hasaka countryside, backed by the Syrian Arab Army, have intercepted many convoys of the occupation while they were trying to move between the villages and towns near the areas where they are deployed.
