BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside Hezbollah and their Iraqi allies, reached the Iraqi border region that is located northeast of the US-held Tanf Crossing, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported this evening.

As a result of this advance, today, the Syrian Armed Forces have effectively cutoff the US-backed rebels from the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to some reports, the Syrian Armed Forces and Iraqi Army met at the border; however, this still remains unconfirmed.

This advance by the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies, northeast of Al-Tanf, was likely secured by the Russian military, as cutting off the US-backed rebels would have required some-kind of deal between the governments in Moscow and Washington.

“as cutting off the US-backed rebels would have required some-kind of deal between the governments in Moscow and Washington”. No. Don’t be stupid. If there be a similarity between Shia and ISIS, it is their recalcitrancy.
