BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have begun to advance towards the strategic border-city of Albukamal in the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Units from the Syrian Democratic Forces reportedly expanded their control over new sites located south of the Al-‘Umar Fields, marking their first advance in this area.

With the US-backed forces pushing towards Albukamal, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) will have to expedite their operations inside provincial capital in order to challenge the SDF for control of this border-city.

If the Syrian Army does not begin their Albukamal soon, the Syrian Army may miss out on liberating Albukamal, which will give the US-backed forces access to arguably one of Syria’s most important border-crossings into Iraq.

Really i don’t know what these US sponsored terrorists are aiming at challenging Syrian government and allowing the US a place in Syria as if they are a state to themselves

Wherever the NATO-crime syndicates are involved war is guaranteed. About the SDF. Those creatures are mercenaries, alike Daesh and the rest of the gang of criminals. Those creatures go along with the highest bidder and I am sure the NATO-crime syndicates made some promises like those criminals did when it came to northern Iraq where the majority of the so called Kurds of the Barzani gang of criminals are paid by the EU. Around %90 of so called Kurds in Erbil are “federal employees”.

Ooh no.
SDF involved in another race to win with all kinds of cheating and betrayals and lies?
I hope the SAA and its allies will learn from their mistakes in the Omar oil field and unleash h**l at once and immediately on Albukamal without waiting for ISIS to transform themselve magically in SDF active members and blow up the strategic goals of Syrian government and allies in that important border area.

There is no learning here. Without Russian air power the Syrian Army rate of advance is much slower than that of the US/ISIS/SDF terror coalition. The denial of Russian air support on these crucial battle fronts for the Syran government forces and its people uncovers collusion of Russia with the US to let them have what they want.

SAA will loose as with oil fields, they will first want to conquer some island or town or village rather than rushing to the strategic objective.

SDF are Kurds in their vast majority with a few Arabs, my friend.
By separating the Kurds from SDF, there would be nothing left in that formation.
And the only one that must be blamed for the acts of the SDF is its sponsor Americans, their patrons

You are wrong about the composition of SDF. The najority of course are SDF, but the rest are all ISIS terrorists rebranded as SDF.

The majority are Kurds, but the rest are ISIS with SDF masks.

Yes my friend.
After the strange successes of SDF last week I fully accept that you are absolutely right.
Taking now into account that fact that you comment, I am very afraid of what can happen to Albukamal, being involved once again the SDF, competing with the regular forces of Syria and allies.

There are NO differences between those two! SDF = ISIS, ISIS = SDF!
It is obvious what the NATO-crime syndicates have in mind. Use the cover of “SDF” to steal as much as possible and when, what will come, the SAA turns against the so called “SDF” the outcry will be massive. From Germany to the USofA the whole NATO-crime syndicates will accuse al-Assad a Dictator and murderer because the SAA turns against the “poor Kurds”. Wait up.. I promise that will happen. Have a good day.
