She explained that in the past weeks, the American forces intensified the operations of extracting Syrian oil, and took out hundreds of tanks loaded with oil that they had stolen from the oil fields on the island, especially the Rmelan fields, to their bases in Iraqi territory, in cooperation with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
