Trump approves wider Syria oil mission

Trump approves wider Syria oil mission”

U.S. troops will occupy a large, oil-rich area stretching 150km from Deir ez-Zor to al-Hasakah, the Trump administration announced on Tuesday.

It's worth noting that the areas where the army is now deploying have been controlled by the Kurdish forces since 2012.

President Donald Trump was widely criticized last month for giving the green light to Turkey to launch its military operation against the Kurdish fighters. Trump has repeatedly bragged "We're keeping the oil".

The Russian Foreign Ministry, commenting on USA plans to expand its military mission to protect Syrian oil, said that the territories of the country's oil fields should be controlled by the Syrian government. Even American politicians who were previously champing at the bit for Trump to keep troops in Syria have criticized the move.

The West's Kurdish allies say they have resumed cooperation with U.S. forces against the Islamic State in northern Syria as American officials acknowledged little had changed in policy terms despite Donald Trump's orders to pull out of the country.

On Tuesday, the Turkish news agency Anadolu reported that the United States military was building two new bases in the oil-rich province of Deir ez-Zor in northeast Syria. One base, near the town of Rmelan in al-Hasakah province, is reportedly situated near some 1,300 oil wells and fills up approximately 4 square km.

The Syrian army on Tuesday deployed in new areas rich in oil fields in the countryside of Hasakah province in northeastern Syria, the latest progress in the overall deployment of the Syrian army in Kurdish-held areas near the border with Turkey.

Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly about ongoing deliberations.
