The US committed a war crime, clearly.
United States military forces started fires in wheat and barley fields in the Syrian Hasakeh province, 866 kilometers northeast of Damascus, as reported by local media.
Several US helicopters dropped incendiary bombs that caused the burning of 250 hectares in the towns of Hwesh, Um Ghadir, Hwesmeh and Yuelieh.Daara remains very violent. Very problematic. Assassinations. Bombings.
Villagers denounced that these fires are intentionally caused by the occupation forces and are part of the economic terrorism carried out against the Syrian people and to end the cultivation of wheat, which is the main food of the Syrians.
The United States maintains illegal bases in the provinces of Deir Ezzor and Hasakeh, the main wheat producers in Syria and where the largest oil fields in the country are located.
Damascus denounced to the UN the illegitimate presence that has the objective of destabilizing the country and depriving the Syrian people of their own natural resources.
