'America is running away like rats': Watch angry Kurds blame US troops for dead babies as they withdraw
Kurds shout at U.S. military troops as they withdraw from Syria (AP/screen grab)

The Associated Press obtained video of Kurds pelting American military vehicles with fruit as they withdrew from Syria.


The video was first captured by a Kurdish news agency, the AP said in a report on Monday.

“Like rats, America is running away,” one man shouted in Arabic. Another shouted obscenities and talked of babies in Kurdish-held Syria who had died in the Turkish offensive.

The scene encapsulated the Kurds’ feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to a US withdrawal that has been rushed and involved several close brushes with Turkish-backed forces.
