BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – A large number of reinforcements from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have reportedly arrived in east Deir Ezzor, today, following the mass build-up of pro-government troops along the Euphrates River.

According to reports from Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Democratic Forces posted these reinforcements along the front-lines with the Syrian Army near the town of Khasham.

Syrian military sources in the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor reported that the build-up of SDF troops near Khasham comes just 48 hours after the Russian military constructed a bridge near the Konoko Gas Field and Al-‘Umar Oil Field.

It appears that both sides are preparing for an attack, with the US-backed forces facing the most to lose if they fail to hold onto the gas and oil fields along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

HOw accurate my friend is this information; if true, how many troops/numbers would facing one another, and what proof do I have this is really happening…say, for instance when you say American’s involved, what kind of numbers of we talking, hundreds, thousands, what kinds of armour are in play, are the Russians, using combat air support? That’s why I have to wonder is this is true or not..forgive me for being a skeptic…Kind Regards….Camalot.

IMHO this is more likely a build-up against IS.

Russians built the bridge. Chess move, IMO. The likes of “if you bomb Syria, we may consider broken the deal on the setup of east-west Euphrates’ shores. Who has more to lose?”

The Nation is Syria and the only forces there should be the S.A.A. and invited allies, period!

Me decepciona YPG, era admirable aquel entonces cuando enfrentaba a ISIS en Kobani, ahora en SDF está al servicio del imperio…
