BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that their fighters seized the largest oil field in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

This claim by the Syrian Democratic Forces comes just a week after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reached the Al-‘Umar Oil Field.

While it is still difficult to confirm, if this story proves true, this will be a major economic blow to the Syrian government because of the Al-‘Umar Oil Field’s production.

More details to come….

Sure they did…

US probably airdropped half a dozen Kurdish women with a flag into the oil field and ordered Islamic State to leave.

Regardless, Kurds are simply using the conflict in an attempt to sieze territory with low to no Kurdish populations. They’re as much occupiers as Islamic State were. They have no claim to the territories, and will be evicted.

The Turds will give back every inch of land they stole from the Syrian people to the government and they’ll hand over all the oil fields they stole. Or they will suffer the same fate as the Iraqi Turds in Kirkuk, and will be treated no differently than Da’esh.

You say it!
My variation of the story is, that ISIS fighters threw away uniforms and dressed into the uniforms of SDF.

Very strange syrian forces have been fighting for the field for a week and SDF terrorists just come in and take it? Assad is eventually going to have to launch a Kirkuk style operation against the Kurds.

AMN: this is very confusing, few days ago you reported that SAA was entering al-omar, this was also reported by other sources, now is the SDF ?

This is not clear news, did they occupied the already liberated oil field?

Once again the SAA and all its allies were trusted and underestimated their enemies, capable of anything, conventional or not, to achieve their evil objectives, by force or by deception and by cheating. Knowing very well that ISIS is equal to SDF, American servants, why the SAA and its allies will wait so long to unleash hell itself to ISIS in Omar field oil, being only 10 KM from the Omar oil field more than a week ago? The truth is that I am somewhat disappointed and very angry about the sad and rather shameful situation of my beloved SAA… Read more »

My thought is that the SAA could take the oil fields easily but fear that if they move on them ISIS or Kurds would set fires as they retreated that would destroy the golden goose. Attacking oil fields is risking major carnage. Better ignore them and take them after the peace comes.l
