BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – Preliminary reports have come in saying that the forces of the Syrian Arab Army have reached the massive Al-Omar Oil Field complex in eastern Deir Ezzor province.

According the one reporter from Russia Today, Syrian Army troops reached the outskirts the Al-Omar Oil Field just moments ago after having crossed to the eastern shore of the Euphrates River opposite Al-Mayadeen city and capturing the town of Zeban earlier on.

Reports say that Syrian forces have achieved fire control over the huge energy site, enticing Islamic State militants to fully withdraw from it.

Whilst yet to be properly confirmed by trusted sources of Al-Masdar News, if these early reports are true, then the development is a big one.

Prior to the Syrian War, the Al-Omar Oil Field contributed to about one quarter of Syria’s oil production. It was captured by ISIS militants in mid-2014.

Once this area is secured it will be a fantastic achievement for the SAA and all the allies of Syria. Let us hope that the Kurds will also see the benefits of remaining in a united Syria rather than a hostile enclave that the US and Israel will use for their own geo-political aims rather than any peace and prosperity for the Kurdish families within Syria.

The Kurds need to be reminded that there are Turks to the north of them, Iraqis to the East of them, and Iranians & Syrians to the South of them. They have the option to move to the West where the Meditteranean is.

On the contrary, the Kurds are the ones who are trying to kick out Arabs/Semites out of the Middle East. Let’s not forget that the Kurds participated in the Armenian genocide. They are also committing genocide against the indigenous Syrian/Assyrian population in northern Syria. The Kurds are Iranian nomads. What are they doing in Semitic lands? If they want a country, they should move back to their ancestral land of Iran and live there as Iranian citizens. The Semitic people who are living in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon etc have existed for more than 10 thousand years (circa 13 thousand).… Read more »
