BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Army and allied paramilitary groups have deployed huge reinforcements to the vast desert countryside of central Syria as part of a new operation aimed at countering US-backed forces.
According to military-affiliated sources, the Syrian Army is to establish an 80 kilometer buffer zone around the oasis city of Al-Qarayatyn to track and foil the movements of US-backed militias and Islamic State terrorists (now considered to be one of the same thing in the eyes of Moscow and Damascus) between the At-Tanf and east Qalamoun regions.
As mentioned in an earlier report, Al-Qarayatyn is to serve as the headquarters of the Syrian Army operation to contain the mobility of US-backed forces and ISIS throughout the provinces of Homs and Rif Dimashq (Damascus).
At the present time, US-backed and pro-US militias are present in the area of At-Tanf and the eastern Qalamoun mountains; the last six months has also proven that small groups of Islamic State fighters also (amazingly) operate in between both regions.
Moscow is convinced that the US and its ‘moderate’ proxies willingly provide safe havens for ISIS terrorists throughout the areas they control in central and eastern Syria.
