BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is planning to cross the Euphrates in the Deir Ezzor Governorate after liberating several areas along the western bank of this vast river.

Syrian Army reinforcements were seen, Thursday, transporting several boats to the Deir Ezzor Governorate for what is expected to be the government’s first attempt during this war to cross the Euphrates and push into these eastern territories.

Crossing the Euphrates River will provide the Syrian Army many advantages, including the ability to cutoff the Islamic State’s (ISIL) main supply line and obstruct the U.S.’ expansion into the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

For the Syrian Army, allowing the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to capture this part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate would be disastrous because it would give the Americans control of the most important border-crossing into Iraq.

The Syrian Army’s High Command views the liberation of the Deir Ezzor border-city of Albukamal as an imperative military endeavor that cannot be dictated by the U.S. Coalition and their allies.

This is very good idea. Israhelli puppets from USA use their Kurdish puppets to steal as much Syrian land as they can.

The Kurds will once again regret their joining the devil. The devil never brings anything good.

The most important assets in Eastern Deir Ezzur are the cluster of oil and gas fields which would be vital for the Syrian economy after the terrorists are completely defeated. Deir Ezzur is by far the richest governorate in Syria with regard to natural resources, with large reserves of oil and gas which are still untapped.

Rate Article :       Still “Wag the Dog” nonsense. The Deir Ezzor governate is not part of the northern federation’s cantons and nobody wants or promotes it to be (apart from the MIT trolls on this site). The SDF would not even go to Abu Camel (or Deir Ezzor city) if Brett the Gurk would beg on his knees. Instead, the SAA could have gone down from Shaddadi to Deir Ezzor since long time ago with logistical support from the SDF, no problem. Nevertheless, the SAA obviously has to cross this kind of Rubicon under difficult conditions at several locations… Read more »

Greater Israel you mean. Kurdistan does not exist. It is a Zionist invention. The place of the Kurds is not even on Syrian soil but in Eastern Anatolia, now part of Turkey.
