BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has crossed the Euphrates River in the Deir Ezzor Governorate after making several advances against the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization, the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, stated on Friday.

“Now we turn to the current agenda of international relations on the development of the situation in Syria. I would like to inform you that after a major victory in Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Government Army continues to clear ISIS terrorists in the eastern regions of the country. The suburbs of this provincial centre have been liberated. The advanced units successfully crossed the Euphrates River, reaching its eastern shore,” Zakharova confirmed.

“It is necessary that the UN actively participate in the humanitarian demining along with other countries that sincerely want to help the Syrian people,” she continued.

“Such assistance would be a real contribution in support of stabilisation and creation of favourable conditions for a political settlement in Syria,” Zakharova concluded.

At long last! Eastern Deir Ezzur harbours 80% of Syria’s oil and gas reserves. Besides being vital for Syria’s economy, securing them would secure Syrian sovereignty because the Kurds would not have the resources to slice Syria in 2 and declare independence, though they do have a bargaining chip with Syria’s main water supply at Tabqa dam. So yes! Go Syria go and secure your and the Syrian people’s gas and oil fields for your present and future generations!
