BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – A large number of Russian special forces personnel were deployed to the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate this week, the Furat Post reported.

According to the publication, the Russian special forces were specifically deployed to the Albukamal and Sayyal areas of the province.

The publication said the Russian special forces were equipped with armored vehicles, anti-tank guided missiles, and sniper rifles, as they prepare to aid the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in their upcoming offensive in the province.

Currently, the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) maintains a large presence near the strategic city of Al-Mayadeen, which was also once their de facto capital after they lost Raqqa city to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

With their operations wrapping up around the Al-Safa region, the Syrian Arab Army has begun concentrating their troops to the Deir Ezzor front, as they prepare to launch this new offensive.

Not at all. This is pure fantasy. He’s a Soleimani creature. ISIS is an expandable geopolitical tool that serves Khamenei’s imperialist ambitions, but also served Erdogan. Jihad is ecumenical. They want to sectarianise secular regimes, baby!

IF ISIS was a tool of Iran Daeshbag, can you explain why the Israeli’s supplied thousands them directly on the Southern Golan border with Israel and why the US has enabled supplies from AlTanf to go to tens of thousands of ISIS in the Syrian desert areas ?

There are many more instances of US/NATO/Israeli collusion with ISIS but your answers to the above will do for a start 🙂

Nobody has to explain your phantasies to you. You make them up, you explain yourself.
