BEIRUT, LEBANON (0:20 A.M.) – The US Coalition forces are not planning to enter Deir Ezzor City, the spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve, U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon, told reporters on Thursday.

“I’ll just tell you that the plan is not to go into Deir Ezzor City, but there (are) plenty of ISIS fighters and resources and leaders that continue to have holdouts throughout the middle Euphrates River valley,” Dillon concluded.

It was initially believed the US Coalition would attempt to out-maneuver the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to the strategic city of Albukamal on the Iraqi border; however, this does not appear to be an option for the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The US Coalition forces launched an offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate last week; they have since captured several kilometers of territory from the Islamic State terrorists.

And something to chew on for all disguised lovers of the fascist AKP regime and the criminal Barzani clan: Yesterday Belgiums highest Court of Appeals in Brussels acquitted the PKK (HPG) from the designation of being a “terrorist” organization instead declaring it a legal party and defence force in an internal conflict, thus bringing a legal case of eleven years to a final closure. The European High Court will also remove similar illegal designations by the rulers of other countries like the eternal Ferkel dynasty of Germany.

They just want the oil, gas, the Industrial hub of Deir Ezzur, which is already under their occupation, the Air Base on the Eastern side of the Euphrates river, which they have also already stolen and occupied, and all of the rest espeially the Syria/Iraq border crossing. The Syrian government will be left with a dead city, because without its industrial hub and life line, Deir Ezzur is lifeless. The US also occupies Al-Tanf border crossing and the Taqba dam, the main water resoirce of… Read more »
