Russia Turns Back U.S. Military Convoy in Syria Confrontation

Russia's military stopped and turned back a U.S. convoy in Syria as friction grows between Washington, D.C., and Moscow over each other's roles in de-escalating conflict in the country.

The Russian Defense Ministry's Syria reconciliation center said on Thursday that six American MRAP-type armored vehicles had taken an "uncoordinated route and without prior notice" in the Kurdish-held Syrian province of Hasakah.

Rear admiral Alexander Karpov, the reconciliation center's deputy head, said in the statement that Russia's military police patrol had stopped the U.S. convoy as it traveled west along the M-4 highway and told it to head back in the opposite direction.

Karpov described the incident, also reported by news agencies, as "another case of violation of the deconfliction protocols by the units of the U.S. armed forces illegally located in Syria."
