SCRIPT
Multiple armoured vehicles flying US flags were filmed on Sunday driving between Rmelan and al-Qahtania and near Saida oil station in Syria's north-eastern al-Hasakah Governorate as part of the US plan to reinforce its positions around Syria's oil fields.
Footage also shows groups of YPG militants [Kurdish People's Protection Units] guarding Saida oil station.
The US military made an announcement in October that it would strengthen its military presence in eastern Syria to protect oil fields from potentially falling into the hands of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL).
