BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been steadily advancing in the Deir Ezzor Governorate recently, liberating large chunks of Islamic State (ISIS) occupied territory on both sides of the Euphrates River.

While their units attempt to advance towards the Islamic State’s capital, Al-Mayadeen, the Syrian Arab Army has also found themselves in a race against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to the strategic Al-‘Umar Oil Fields.

With the SDF units attempting to reach the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields from their positions near the recently captured Conoco Gas Factory, the Syrian Arab Army has taken the initiative to block the latter by advancing south along the Euphrates towards the Al-Hatla area.

Currently, both parties are neck-and-neck in Deir Ezzor, with the Syrian Arab Army attempting to take the lead by liberating the territory south of Khasham on the eastern banks of the Euphrates.

If the Syrian Army can beat the SDF to the Al-‘Umar Fields, they will receive a big economic boost, as this site is one of the largest producers of oil in the country.

Cheer up, you can achieve it, my Glorious Arab Army of Syria with the fervent help of your great allies, my beloved Russia, Iran and Hezbollah.
Because while you fight for what belongs to you by law, the Kurdish puppets only steal for their American master thief without shame and no sense of honor.
Of course Karma exists and sooner or later good will prevail over all evil.

I hope the SAA quickly closes the way to oilfields so Syrian Disgusting Forces(SDF) can not steal it.

They’re going to need to outrace the SDF and crush the Daeshbags at Mayadeen, cross the Euphrates from there and handle any potential defense or lack thereof to reach the fields.

Americans can accuse Pakistan of harboring terrorists inside Pakistan. Accuse them that these Bad Taliban & Haqqani mercenaries are travelling from Pakistan’s border regions into Afghanistan and fighting and killing American forces who are there for last 16 years fighting Taliban. Then what is America doing in Syria by arming, training & providing logistical support to FSA which wants to topple Prez Assad & defeat SA. One rule for self and another rule for others? SAA first get rid of Daesh in Dier Ez-Zorr. The Americans will eventually have to leave Dier Ez-Zorr and cant stay on. The Kurds will… Read more »

Rate Article :       Go SAA, RuAF, Hezbollah, Liwa al Quds and everyone fighting to keep the Syrian Arab Republic united and free. US, EU, Israel, GCC, KSA and all who wanted to destroy Syria and force “regime change” (coup d’etat) in Damascus…YOU LOST. You can NEVER force subservient status on free and proud people. They will fight you until you learn this lesson. A lesson the USA and Israel especially don’t want to understand even as it is proven to them time and time again. All the firepower in the world is no match for people fighting for their… Read more »
