Syrian Foreign Ministry protests US troops in Rmeilan

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has protested the US stationing 150 troops on Syrian soil against the wishes of the Syrian government in Damascus.

“We received with deep concern the news that 150 US troops have entered the Syrian territory into Rmeilan area,” a source at the Foreign Ministry said, dismissing the move as “a blatant act of aggression that constitutes a dangerous intervention and a gross violation of the Syrian sovereignty.”

The troops are due to arrive to a newly built US airbase located at Rmeilan in the Kurdish controlled Hasakah region of northeastern Syria.
