Syrian official says US has no right to plunder nation’s oil

Syrian presidential adviser Bouthaina Shaaban says the US has no right to Syria’s oil and warned of ’operations’ against American troops guarding the oil fields. In October, Trump announced plans to withdraw most of the US troops from Syria. But he later reversed course, approving an expanded military mission to secure an expanse of oil fields across eastern Syria.

I thought Trump said he was removing all troops from Syria months ago! Now American soldiers might die stealing Syrian oil?

Nobody is stealing oil. We are simply making sure that oil continues to flow and there is minimal disruption to production.
