BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Army has stepped up its presence across the vast desert countryside of central Syria in a move to better monitor and prevent the movement of US-backed forces throughout the region.

The new security protocols being implement by the Syrian Army in central Syria include building new positions and checkpoints as well as greatly increasing the number of patrols near to areas held by US proxy militias.

The measures being undertaken represent an operation in their own right; the objective is to better track and contain the movement of US-backed forces between the At-Tanf and eastern Qalamoun regions.

According to pro-government sources, the center-point of the new operation (from where it is being directed) is the ancient desert town of Al-Qarayantyn; the territorial parameters of security campaign encompass Homs and Rif Dimashq (Damascus) provinces.

This is welcome and long overdue news. The US base in Al Tanf is a likely start point for much of the arms smuggling to US terrorists in Ghouta and elsewhere.

Plus a jumping off point for the insertion of more US terrorists into Syria generally.

Suria needs a stationary observation satellite with Quantum transmission technology which connects the data to armed drones through a operations centre. Not much manpower needed. For the time being, join the Chinese Beidou satellite system.

Putin has tried from the start to avoid any direct confrontation with the US but this has become inevitable now. If the US forces at At-Tanf link up to the US forces at AR-Raqqah and take over the whole of eastern Syria, Assad… Read more »
