BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, Coalition and Kurdish-led forces are assisting ISIS terrorists in eastern Deir Ezzor through a variety of means in what appears to be an attempt to prevent the Syrian Army and allied paramilitaries from liberating the region.

Major General Igor Konashenkov, a ministry spokesman, has noted that the strongest ISIS counterattacks and artillery shelling against the Syrian Army bridgehead on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River come from the north where American and Kurdish forces hold positions and not from the south where the Islamic State is still unchallenged by any force.

The Russian general has also pointed out other acts of sabotage being committed by the US-led so-called anti-ISIS Coalition against Syrian Army forces.

According to Konashenkov, in the process of elite Syrian Army units crossing to the eastern bank of the Euphrates, the water level drastically rose in several hours, this being something which could only be achieved by the flushing of large river dams further north – dams that are under the control of Kurdish forces.

Finally, Konashenkov also mentioned reports from Syrian Army commanders that US special forces and Kurdish fighters were lending medical assistance to ISIS militants and that the commanders concluded that this appears to be the only objective of the Coalition-led eastern Deir Ezzor offensive at the moment.

That doesn’t surprise me. The Kurds while fighting in Raqqa sending a small number of their troops to Deir Ezzor and have a much easier journey to the Euphrates than the SAA and all their allies???

The USA and Israel as two partners in crime both support their terrorists in Syria and treat their wounded without then detaining them as terrorist combatants . Its all part of US Democratic Values 🙂

Ha-Ha.:-) The US has no democratic values and never had it. The essence of American values is imperial aggression, the robbery of foreign lands and property. Throughout their history since the colonization of North America.

It is basically the same scenario as when in the past ISIS, without a fight, handed over the northern Syrian to the Kurds.
The Kurds have been conquering Rakka for four months. What have they been doing for so long? Where does ISIS acquire weapons, ammunition, and food in a besieged city?

by that logic, the Iraqi army was assisting ISIS in Mosul.

this is just Russian propaganda at this point. the Kurds only care about themselves.

all the russians are doing at this point is trying to justify their airstrike last week

The Kurds primarily steal the territories where they do not live. How many Kurds are living in Deir Ezzor? The Kurds never lived there. But there’s the oil their US friends want. 😉
The entire Syrian war is mainly about oil and gas. And the Kurds became only sad clowns in this theater.
It’s not Russian propaganda, that’s reality.

again. the Kurds only care about themselves. they’re trying to grab as much land as possible so that when the war ends; the’ll have a higher bargaining power on the negotiating table.

the Kurds want autonomy or even their own nation; something denied to them by the imperialistic Sykes-Picot agreement.

If the Kurds only think about themselves, they better start thinking a little clearer. According to you they are going to use their position as a bargaining chip. Unfortunately, the Zionists want to use them to keep the area destabilized, to harass the Syrians and to slow the Syrian advance so they can buy time to hatch even more expanding war plans. The Zionists have no real use for a Kurdish state, just useful fools. They need an entire corridor for their plans for more chaos and destabilization, this would be the area they are now trying to take. This… Read more »

to Flay the Daeshbags. Who will negotiate with the Kurds? Assad? Erdogan? Iran? Russia? Ha-ha. 🙂 No country in the Middle East is interested in creating the Kurdish state.
I’m sorry for the Kurds, but they bet on the bad horse. Within Assad’s Syria they could have considerable autonomy. They will have nothing like that. The only result for Kurds will be a frozen conflict. Like in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya ……
That is what the US and Israhell are interested in.;-)

Well, in fact there are hardly any Kurds in Deir Ezzor. The SDF fighting force there, according to what I have read, is almost entirely made up of Arabs. Some of them possibly former ISIS or ISIS sympathisers, which would go some way to explaining the situation on the ground

The SDF is just another American puppet to break Syria when their puppets ISIS, Al-Nusra and Free Salafist Army are collapsing. And it is totally irrelevant how many Kurds and how many Arabs are in the SDF.

Well, the only one here who believes such blather is you. The Kurds are just another US proxy to be used and abused. The sooner they realize that they are less than nothing to the US and Israel, only a means to an end, the better off they’ll be. Neither the US or their ‘allies’ can do a thing in the long run to keep a Kurdish state afloat. When the US realizes that their plans are for naught, the Kurds will see their real value…but by then it will be way too late. The sweet talk they are getting… Read more »
