SANA’s reporter in Hassakeh said that, “On Wednesday morning, A Syrian Arab Army post stopped four American occupation vehicles while they were crossing al-Suwais – Alaia- Khirbet Ammo road, east of Qamishli city. Then hundreds of locals of Khirbet Ammo and Hamou villages gathered near the post to prevent the American occupation vehicles from crossing and to force them to return from where they came”.

The reporter stated that, “The American occupation soldiers fired live bullets and smoke bombs at the locals, martyring one civilian from the village of Khirbet Ammo and injuring another from Hamou village.”
