US plans to incite extremists against Syrian, Russian, Iranian troops
The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service has revealed that Washington actively participates in the illegal shadow trade of Syria's oil.
The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) revealed Tuesday that the United States intends to launch a media campaign to trigger actions in Syria.
"The information received by the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service proves that the US administration aims to maintain the American presence in Syria, preventing the stabilization of the situation in this country," the Russian Intelligence pointed out in a statement.
According to the SVR, the US intelligence plans to use extremists in Latakia and Damascus to organize targeted actions against Syrian, Russian, and Iranian troops.
"To achieve their goals in Syria, the Americans are actively using their close contacts with the so-called armed opposition, and in fact with radical Islamist groups," the statement read.
The statement also explained that the "US intelligence agencies plan to direct the ‘sleeper cells’ of extremists in the city of Damascus, the adjacent region, and the province of Latakia to carry out targeted actions against members of the Syrian law enforcement agencies, as well as the military personnel of Russia and Iran."
US takes part in illegal oil trade
As part of its illegitimate presence in Syria, Washington actively participates in the illegal shadow trade of Syria's oil, as US troops accompany oil trucks from occupied territories of northeastern Syria to Iraq's Kurdistan, then about a third of the stolen oil is sold for $35-40 per barrel, the SVR statement revealed.
According to the statement, "up to 3 million barrels of raw materials are extracted from fields in the provinces of Al-Hasakah, Al-Raqqa, and Deir Ezzor every month."
