Keep Calm and Steal Oil? US Continues Operations in Crude-Rich Syrian Regions as Coronavirus Rages

American forces were supposed to withdraw from the Arab Republic back in September-October 2019 according to Trump's orders, but several hundred servicemen stayed in order to "guard" the oil fields in the country's east.

Even as the coronavirus has affected most of the world, including some countries' militaries, US servicemen in the Middle East are apparently carrying on with their regular duties regardless.

According to a recent report by the broadcaster Syria TV, citing local sources, a group of at least 35 US military vehicles travelled from Syria's north-eastern Al Hasakah province to the south - purportedly to the city of Al Shaddadah. The Syrian broadcaster said that the US forces would be finalising the construction of a military base there.
