BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – On Friday, the elite Tiger Forces branch of the Syrian military was given orders to redeploy to eastern Syria, where they will post up along the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to a military source in Damascus, the reason for the redeployment is due to the growing Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) that is posed by the upcoming Turkish Army offensive east of the Euphrates.

The source said that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are fighting ISIS right now, will be forced to redeploy much of their troops to northern Syria as they attempt to deal with the looming Turkish Army threat.

The Tiger Forces are expected to clear a small Islamic State pocket that has remained near the border-city of Albukamal.

ISIS has launched several attacks on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions from this pocket near Albukamal; it has become a major issue due to the constant shelling from the terrorist group on the city.

SAA and SDF must make a joint effort. Clear IS in the East together and defend the border to the Sultanate of Turkey together

@Assad must stay, absolutely. In a Federation they are part of Syria but have some rights.

See other countries with a federal structure.

There are things run by the Federation and things run by the provinces/states.

Which two in this Forum did not like Federations where national minorities have a province or some rights?

Russia for example – just to mention one.
