BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is gearing up to attack one of the most important border-crossings between the Deir Ezzor Governorate and Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate, a military source told Al-Masdar News today.

Led by their 5th Corps, the Syrian Arab Army plans to capture the imperative T-2 Pumping Station within the next few days, as their forces ramp up operations north of the Houran Valley.

Once the T-2 Pumping Station is seized, the Syrian Arab Army will have a clear path to the ‘Akaz Gas Fields, where they hope to expel the remaining Islamic State (ISIL) forces to the key city of Albukamal.

With Albukamal in their sights, the Syrian Arab Army will attempt to cutoff the Islamic State’s most important supply route from Iraq, which will accelerate the terrorist group’s downfall near the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor.

Helping the Syrian Army complete this operation will be the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi), Hezbollah, and Liwaa Fatemiyoun.

All of the aforementioned forces have played a crucial role in the Syrian government’s operations in southeastern Syria, capturing large parts of the Al-Sweida, Homs, and Damascus governorates.
