BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 P.M.) – In one day it will be three months since Syrian pro-government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army and supported by Russian airpower, lifted the ISIS-imposed siege on Deir Ezzor, bringing an end to three years of uncertainty which hung over the city regarding its fate. Perhaps more disappointed with this outcome than ISIS itself are US-backed forces and so-called ‘opposition’ supporters.

What Deir Ezzor represents symbolically is hated not just by ISIS, but also by Kurdish separatists and radical Sunni-centric armed groups (namely the Free Syrian Army) alike.

Deir Ezzor, beyond its obvious strategic value as a major settlement which commands all the main roads running from and across eastern Syria’s Euphrates valley region, is a city where Sunnis Arabs, ethnic Kurds and Druze as well as Christian Armenians and Assyrians have lived in peace for generations. It is a cross-section of Syrian society itself.

For the standard Kurdish separatist or Sunni supremacist who cannot muster a thought of sympathy for others beyond their own tribe, how horrible the existence of such a city is (and how evil such a ‘regime’ that defends it must be).

The information aggression campaign propelled by the various press centers of US-backed forces and opposition personalities linked to mainstream media outlets (both of whom expressed their thoughts through social media outlets like Twitter) against the pro-government operations to lift the siege and then to complete the liberation of Deir Ezzor from ISIS (after the siege was lifted) took on pathetic proportions.

To this end, pro-ISIS views were passively expressed by Kurdish separatists and pro-opposition ideologues over social media, asking disguised rhetorical questions more-or-less like “how can we liberate the city if the regime is still there?”.

Furthermore, passive requests for permission by US-backed forces to attack the Syrian Army were also made via the press centers of these armed groups, such requests being disguised as disappointment with statements to the effect of “unfortunately Syrian opposition forces cannot liberate Deir Ezzor since the regime got there first” and “Operation Al-Jazeera Storm [the Syrian Democratic Forces’ campaign to reach Deir Ezzor] failed because the US surrendered the city to the regime”.

With this understood, it can be concluded that US-backed forces, both in the form of Kurdish separatist and pro-Sunni rebel groups, wanted the city of Deir Ezzor to fall to ISIS. They wanted this so that they could then take the city (with US military support) for themselves and, with the city’s cultural heritage destroyed as well as its minorities exterminated (as ISIS, being the iconoclastic and genocidal group it is, would have done), build their own segregationist societies on top of it in addition to preventing the re-establishment of the legitimate government’s authority over Syria’s eastern provinces.

  1. More proof if needed that ‘US Democratic Values’ would have deliberately resulted in the murder of over 100,000 people by ISIS in the besieged parts of Deir Ezzor City so that the US could claim a faux legitimacy for their wished for SDF/US/Israeli occupation of that city.

All terrorists should be captured alive and made to rebuild what they have destroyed.

They better serve as fertilizer and their bones used in making concrete.

But of course it was not just ‘US-backed forces wanted ISIS to conquer Deir Ezzor, so did opposition supporters’; the U.S.-led Coalition airstrikes near the Deir Ezzor Airport in eastern Syria on 17 September 2016 indicated that they did indeed want ISIS to take the area. The ‘accidental’ slaughter of 109 Syrian Arab Army soldiers, and wounding of 100-odd more, immediately followed by a massive ISIS attack which forced the SAA to retreat from very strongly dug in defenses around Deir Ezzor airport was obviously coordinated with ISIS. The Western scum and their Middle East scum cronies have caused all… Read more »

And the loss of Thardah mountain to ISIS by the treacherous American “mistake” led to untold loss of life and injury, greatly aggravating the suffering of the people of Deir-ez-Zor. That DeZ held out against years of furious, fanatical siege is a tribute to the heroism of General Issam Zahreddine, whose statue, I hope, will one day adorn the streets of DeZ.

“Deir Ezzor, beyond its obvious strategic value” “is a cross-section of Syrian society itself.” Sums up all. Plus why separatists & supremacists did not move a finger. Especially the US and US sponsored ones did nothing to help.
