BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 A.M.) – An important meeting is scheduled to take place on Friday between the Syrian government and Arab tribal delegation in the southern part of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

According to a military source in Damascus city, the Syrian government delegation will be meeting with various Arab tribal leaders from the Al-Raqqa, Deir Ezzor, Al-Hasakah, and Aleppo governorates later this morning.

He would add that the meeting will be led by Syrian intelligence chief Ali Mamlouk and it will take place at the Ithriya Crossroad that is located at the provincial borders of the Al-Raqqa and Hama governorates.

The delegation meeting with the Syrian government will comprise of Arab tribes that are both loyal and against the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

This is the first major meeting between the Syrian government and Arab tribes to take place in 2019.

A similar meeting between the government and Arab tribes was held last summer in the Deir Hafer countryside; however, the main topic was countering the U.S.’ influence in northern Syria.

It appears today’s meeting will concentrate on the upcoming Turkish military operation that will target all the areas east of the Euphrates.
