Tehran 08 March_A US military convoy has been forced to retreat from an area in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah after government forces blocked its way and groups of angry local residents, upset with its presence in the region, throw stones at the US convoy.

Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that Syrian army soldiers stopped the American convoy, consisting of 7 armored vehicles, as it tried to make its way through the village of Kuzelia, which lies  west of Tal Tamr town, on Sunday.

Locals then threw stones at the American convoy and cursed the soldiers, forcing them to move back.

The development came only two days after local residents of Rumailan al-Basha village in the same Syrian province hurled stones at US troops as their convoy sought to drive through the area.

Scores of Turkish-backed militants slain in internal disputes

Separately, scores of Turkish-backed Takfiri militants have been killed and injured as infighting between rival groups continues in the embattled northern part of Syria.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), citing local sources, reported that a fierce exchange of gunfire broke out on Sunday when members of the so-called Ahrar al-Sharqiya (Free Men of the East) militant group launched an offensive on the positions of the Levant Front (Jabhat al-Shamiyah) terrorists  in the northern Syrian border town of Tal Abyad.

The sources noted that the clashes have left dozens of militants killed and injured from both sides.

The incident took place only a few days after dozens of Turkish-backed militants were killed in a dispute over the distribution of property stolen during attacks in the western countryside of Tal Abyad.

SOHR reported that the militants were killed in the village of Kafifa on March 5 after they turned on each other and engaged in a heavy gun battle.
