Angry Kurds have blocked American troops on the street as they cross over from Syria to hostility after Washington pulled the plug from their support.
American troops were filmed and arrived in military vehicles in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.
But instead of welcoming the heroes of Kurds they would ever have done, some indignant residents went to the middle of the road to block the oncoming vehicle.
The hostile scene comes after American troops were pelted with potatoes as they traveled through a Syrian city on their way to Iraq on Monday.
Yesterday it turned out that Washington can leave some troops in Syria to secure oil fields in the east of the country. Between 200 and 300 US troops will also remain at the southern Syrian outpost of Al-Tanf.

The images of American troops receiving a hostile welcome from Iraqi Kurds come after yesterday that American troops were pelted with potatoes as they traveled through a Syrian city, while the local population expressed their feelings of betrayal.
Footage shows armored vehicles traveling through the city of Qamishli and residents living in English & # 39; No America & # 39; and & # 39; America liar & # 39; call. The clip then lets them throw potatoes at the convoy.
The recent icy scenes summarize the feeling of betrayal by the Kurds and add a new outrage to an American withdrawal that has been hunted and saw several dense brushes with troops supported by Turkey.

On Monday, it turned out that the US could leave some troops in Syria to secure oil fields in the east of the country and ensure that they do not fall into the hands of a reviving Islamic state.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the plan was still in the discussion phase and had not yet been presented to Trump, who repeatedly said the Islamic State was defeated.
Esper emphasized that the proposal to leave a small number of troops in East Syria was intended to give the president & # 39; room for maneuver & # 39; to give and was not final.

President Trump also told White House reporters Monday that the US would "do something with the Kurds in Eastern Syria". to ensure that they have access to income from Syrian oil. He suggested sending an American oil company there to help.
Trump ordered most of the approximately 1,000 US troops in Syria to retire within a few weeks late on Saturday, after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made it clear in a phone call that his troops were about to invade Syria to Kurdish troops reduce that Turkey regards as terrorists.
The withdrawal largely leaves the Kurdish allies of America who have fought IS alongside US troops for several years. Between 200 and 300 US troops will remain at the southern Syrian outpost of Al-Tanf.
