People have thrown potatoes, rotten fruit, and stones at US troops as they left Syria in armed vehicles, with one man appearing to shout: ‘You liars!’

Iran PressMiddle East: Angry over the U.S. withdrawal from Syria, residents of Qamishli, a Kurdish-dominated city, pelted departing American military vehicles with potatoes Monday as they drove through. 

A video by the Kurdish news agency showed a convoy of armored vehicles driving through the northeastern city of Qamishli. People in the street hurled potatoes at the vehicles, shouting, "No America," and "America liar," in English.

"Like rats, America is running away," one man shouted in Arabic. Another shouted obscenities and talked of babies in Kurdish-held areas who have died in the Turkish offensive.

The scene encapsulated the Kurds' feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to an American withdrawal that has been rushed and saw several close brushes with Turkish military and Turkish-backed forces.
