The US armed forces, together with the Arab-Kurdish militias of the “Syrian Democratic Forces”, illegally control territories in northern and northeastern Syria in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Al-Hasakah and Raqqa, where the largest oil and gas fields in Syria are located.
Official Damascus has repeatedly called the presence of the American military on its territory occupation and state piracy with the aim of outright theft of oil.
