US armed forces are controlling territories in northern and northeastern Syria in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, al-Hasakah and Raqqa, where Syria's largest oil and gas deposits are located. Damascus has repeatedly called the presence of the US military on its territory an occupation and state piracy for the purpose of blatant oil heist.
