US Shoot and Kill 14 year old Syrian Boy in Al-Hasakah


(MOSCOW) TASS – A 14-year-old boy was killed in the Syrian region of Al-Hasakah in a clash of US troops with local civilians, while another civilian was wounded, Major General Yuri Borenkov, the chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Parties in Syria, said on Wednesday.

According to the general, “a conflict broke out [between the US service members and locals] triggering the US troops to open fire on the civilians with the intent to kill.”

Borenkov pointed out that “one local civilian was wounded. Another – the 14-year-old boy Feisal Khalid Muhammad – was killed.”

The Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Parties in Syria explained that the conflict broke out after the US military convoy deviated from its route and was stopped by Syrian government units outside Harbat Hamo in Al-Hasakah Province at 10.30 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

“Only thanks to efforts of the Russian soldiers who had arrived at the scene was it possible to avoid any further escalation of the conflict with local residents,” Borenkov said.

According to the general, the Russian service members also helped to “ensure the exit of the US Forces’ convoy towards their base at the inhabited locality of Himo in Al-Hasakah Province.”

The Russian reconciliation center continues to fulfill assigned tasks after the completion of the military campaign in Syria. The center’s officers regularly travel around the country’s liberated areas to assess the humanitarian situation. The main efforts of the Russian military are now focused on assistance to the refugees returning to their homes and evacuation of civilians from de-escalation zones.

EDITOR’S NOTE: After the American military incident, a Russian Military Police vehicle moved into the area in order to quell the hostilities. Watch:

Incredibly, US officials described the villagers of Khirbet Ammu, east of Qamishli city, Syria, as being “pro-government militiamen” who blocked the American convoy as it tried to pass through a checkpoint “occupied by pro-Syrian government forces,” only these were just residents of the village.

US offer no remorse whatsoever for the killing. No doubt, this event will carry major symbolic value across Syria and will not help the US in maintaining its illegal occupation of Syria’s oil fields in the northeastern region.
