Russian and US Military Vehicles Collide in Syria

A US soldier listens to a speech at a military base in Syria's northeastern Hasakeh province Report: U.S. Troops Injured in ‘Interaction’ with Russian Forces in Syria

But President Donald Trump has suggested are there "only for the oil" that's rich in the country's northeast.

James Phillips, a senior research fellow at The Heritage Foundation, described the latest clash as a culmination of competing interests.

"This is likely to continue until the Russians see that this incurs more costs than benefits for them", Phillips told Insider.

CNN talked to "several USA officials" who allegedly said a Russian vehicle deliberately colliding with American vehicles.

The US continues to illegally occupy Syrian territory and to illegally confiscate Syrian oil, but it is also playing very risky military games with the Russians, who are in Syria legally at the request of their ally. "We have advised the Russians that their behavior was unsafe and unacceptable".

"Playing bumper cars with Russians in the Levant serves no vital USA national interest", Gil Barndollar, a senior fellow at the Defense Priorities think tank, said in an email.

On returning to their base, four USA service members were diagnosed with mild concussion-like symptoms following the "bump" between vehicles, according to two US officials, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to be named in the media.

"First, President Trump abandoned our service men and women in Syria and handed control over to the Russians".

Early US media reports also described the US as blocking the patrol area, and if Russian Federation told them about it ahead of time, this gives the appearance that the US positioned specifically to have a confrontation with Russian Federation.

Politico reported that four United States troops suffered mild concussions from the incident.

Some experts believe that the potential for escalation is not worth what they say are hazy objectives for the American forces still in the country.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL, an Air National Guard officer, called the incident "disturbing" in a tweet directed at Putin and said it was "not a game you will win". Video footage of the incident on social media showed two vehicles colliding after Russian armored vehicles drove towards a moving U.S. mine-resistant ambush protected all-terrain vehicle (M-ATV).

"At approximately 10 a.m. (Syria Time), Aug. 25, a routine Defeat-ISIS Coalition security patrol encountered a Russian military patrol near Dayrick, in northeast Syria", Ullyot said in a statement on Wednesday.

The US military does not generally comment on injuries.

A Pentagon spokesperson said on Wednesday that Milley had spoken with his Russian counterpart, but did not disclose details of the conversation.

"To de-escalate the situation, the coalition patrol departed the area", Ullyot said.

"Despite this [notification] in line with the existing agreements, members of the USA armed forces carried out an attempt to block Russian patrol", he said in a statement.
