BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Ambassador to Russia, Riyad Haddad, said on Thursday that the United States of America controls all the Syrian oil fields in the northeastern part of the country.

Haddad’s comments came during an interview on the channel “Russia 24”, in which he considered that liberating these oil areas from the U.S. forces might contribute to reviving the Syrian economy and improving conditions in the country.

Haddad told the channel: “The Americans today are already in the northeastern part of the country, controlling all the oil fields there and stealing our oil resources. If we can liberate this region from the American occupation, this will revive our economy.”

Syrian and tribal sources in the Al-Hasakah countryside confirmed to Sputnik Arabic on Thursday that the U.S. Army forces had seized lands belonging to the Syrian state in order to expand the area of ​​their control in the vicinity of oil installations in the region.

The time is coming when US will be forced out of middle east.

The US can never ‘leave the Middle East’ or its faux Crusader State will fall. The original Crusader States lasted briefly – 1099- 1187 AD. Less than 100 years, yet their effect still ripples. The same will be true of this more recent attempt to inject European colonists into a hostile area.

The “yanks” just need to get out of the middle east. They are a major source of the existing turmoil in the region. Added to that they are stealing from countries like Iraq and Syria.

Just destroy the oil facilities. You can rebuild them later. It will take too much time and effort for the Americans to fix them in a war zone. There are actually people in the United States who support the Americans controlling these facilities. It’s outright theft. And the dictator, Donald Trump, is a thief. Not only that, he is a hostage taker. He took that Huawei executive’s daughter hostage and that Russian gun rights activist hostage. He also stole Venezuela’s gold. He’s also raped women and children, a close personal friend to Jeffrey Epstein and Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is… Read more »

The liberation of the oil fields will first require patriation of the airspace and construction of air defences.

Latest news: US forces are bringing SAM missiles to Iraq, in defiance of the Iraqi government demanded they exit. Also two US CVN’s -aircraft carriers – are on route to waters near Iraq/Syria. Rus and others will soon have some huge targets. 5,000 crew. Would end the war very quickly. The US elections only seven months away. It could even end Trump era. Is it doable? In 2009 a RAN submarine penetrated the ‘sub. screen’ around a US CVN during annual War Games off Australia. The USN was quite embarrassed. Showed it CAN be done. But RAN also penetrated the… Read more »

The US will not remain in this Empire building phase for long. It is too costly. The last time they did this was when they conquered the Spanish Empire, 1895 till 1912. Took them 10 years to subdue the Philippines and cost one million locals their lives. They also obtained Cuba, Guam, Puerto Rico. Local ‘rebels’ were induced to rise against Spain by promises of US aid and ‘liberty’. Then the US ‘intervened’ and Occupied all. When the US says “liberty for all’ it means “for all os us”. Such lies help make it ‘exceptional’.

It’s very lame to read this kind of propaganda. It’s as if the Damascus dictatorship has learned nothing. The oil fields are under direct control of the government of North and East Syria, the SDC, and the Syrian people who live there. Get used to it.

Wrong my friend, those oil fields are in control of USA, and USA uses Syria or foreign worker there. Haven’t you heard or read what Trump said ?, even the president himself admitted it. USA sells the oil through Turkey to Europe and Japan. North-americans most of west country have lost credibility due to “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.”

The American are occupier of Syrian land and they are criminals and robbers of Syrian oil , the Kurds will get what deserve later , they are criminals just like Israel and the western nations who occupied and colonized poor countries , they are not Christians .

Even more lame and amusing is this mediocre piece of propaganda you tried to propagate here yourself. “Government of North and East Syria” indeed being entities that of course, don’t exist outside of mere PR declarations emanating from a morally bankrupt oval office decried even in its own country for their corruption level. The places you’re referring to, until proven or recognized otherwise , are in reality parts of the Syrian nation my friend. And they even enjoy a seat at the UN to this day, soon to come back to the Arab League as well, with its capital, institutions… Read more »

Propaganda? No. Wishful thinking, though, certainly. And the oil fields are under the direct control of the American military. The local Arab and Kurdish population have no say whatsoever in their exploitation, future development, or long-term ownership and control. Trump proclaimed, “We got the oil”. The Pentagon says, “that any revenues from their production would go to the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces)”. The Pentagon spokesman may have meant “SDC” (Syrian Democratic Council”, or perhaps not. The implication is that any oil revenues will go to provide training, weapons, military hardware and vehicles for the military wing of the SDC, reducing… Read more »
