According to civil sources, four American occupation soldiers, among them a translator, were killed when an explosive device exploded, targeting their vehicle in the countryside of Markada town on Hasaka-Deir Ezzor Road between al-Shaddadi base and al-Omar oil field in Deir Ezzor countryside.
The sources added that the US occupation forces imposed a security cordon around the area.
US occupation forces, in cooperation with the majority Kurdish so-called Syrian Democratic Forces, control most of the oil fields in the Syrian island region, and have reinforced their presence after sending hundreds of trucks with military and logistical reinforcements. The ongoing US occupation is illegal under international law, and has been repeatedly condemned by the government of the Syrian Arab Republic.
