Large numbers of people in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah have protested against the presence of US troops in the country.

Iran Press/Middle East: Syrian protesters chanted anti-American slogans and demanded the withdrawal of American occupiers from their territory.

Syrian demonstrators also condemned new US sanctions against Syria under the Cesar law.

Caesar's law was signed in December 2019 by US President Donald Trump against Syria.

Under Caesar's law, the United States intends to put Damascus in a difficult position by imposing severe sanctions on Syrian institutions and individuals to prevent cooperation between Syria and its allies to rebuild the country.

Residents of several villages in Hasakah province also prevented US military equipment from entering the area, forcing them to retreat.

The eastern regions of Syria have been the scene of numerous anti-occupation demonstrations and new US sanctions against Syria over the past month.

With the illegal presence of its forces in northeastern Syria, the United States not only supports terrorist groups in Syria, but also aims to plunder and plunder Syria's oil and natural resources.

Damascus has repeatedly stressed that the actions of the United States and its allies in Syria are "occupying" the country.
