BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 A.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces continued their advance into Deir Ezzor City, Monday, capturing several areas from the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) at the northern part of the provincial capital.

The Syrian Democratic Forces managed to capture the strategic 113th Brigade Base on Monday, following a series of intense clashes with the Islamic State terrorists.

Once the 113th Brigade Base was liberated, the SDF turned their attention to the Al-Salihiyah District, where they scored another advance against the depleted ISIL units.

However, this advance has not been welcomed by everyone, as the Syrian Army’s High Command views this advance by the SDF as an attempt to impede the government’s progress.

According to a military source from the Syrian Army, the SDF is quickly trying to expand southward in Deir Ezzor to block the Syrian Army’s planned amphibious landing, which would allow them access to the districts east of the Euphrates River.

With the Islamic State’s large presence in the western part of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army may run out of time to cross the Euphrates, as SDF units quickly advance south towards Albukamal.

I just saw a pix of this Ahmed Abu Khawla, Deir Ezzor Military Council commander. Same gesture (finger etc.) than those creatures and mercenaries of the NATO-crime syndicates called Daesh. “If the Assad regime directs one bullet at us, we will respond.”, was the comment of this Ahmed Abu Khawla. It will end up with a direct confrontation between the SAA and the pawns of the NATO-crime syndicates called “SDF” or “Kurdish forces”. I am confident there will be no way around except Russia does like what happens in the north of Syria. Sorry to say, but I don’t trust… Read more »

What will they do if they found their non existant state (like the palestines) on the one side is Turkey (with president Erdogan), on the other side Iraq, and the next side Iran. Their allies Israel and the United States of America are far away and some of the neighbouring countries have to buy the oil or send medicine and food. So without the help of the neighbours it´s a Phyrus-success.

The Syrian government forces have to fight the foreign mercenary SDF forces to regain control of their land before they are stripped away from Syria by the Zionist Kurdish thieves. I have been harking this from months now, when the Syrian government troops were barely 40km away from Raqqa to Deir Ezzur city and some moron ordered the Tiger Forces to stop their advance. I’m beginning to suspect back stabbing from Russia which probably made a behind the scenes agreement with the US to leave all of Syria’s resource rich sovereign territory on the Estern banks of the Euphrates river… Read more »

Praying that GOD will cause the U.S. to get completely out of Syria. U.S. is pretty tough to many – but not GOD. He is not intimidated in the least by any U.S. military technology or eliate special forces. He can take care of them in a nanosecond.
