DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:00 A.M.) – The U.S. and their Persian Gulf counterpart Saudi Arabia have reportedly agreed to allow an estimated 9,000 Islamic State terrorists free passage from the Iraqi city of Mosul to Syria, a military source told the Russian-based RIA Novosti News Agency on Wednesday.

“More than 9,000 Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS, ISIL) militants will be redeployed from Mosul to the eastern regions of Syria to carry out a major offensive operation, which involves capturing Deir ez-Zor and Palmyra,” the source said.

The source suggested that redeployment of IS militants is necessary because“Washington must somehow counter Russia’s achievements in Syria, try to diminish their importance.”

“Apart from the purely political dividends, the other purpose of this operation, obviously, will be to discredit the success of Russian Airspace forces. And, of course, it’s an attempt to undermine Syrian President (Bashar) Assad,” he said.

The leadership of Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Directorate will be the mediators and guarantors of the agreement on safe passage for the jihadists from Mosul, he claimed.

With Mosul being the Islamic State’s capital in Iraq, the Iraqi Armed Forces would have to defeat a large army of terrorists in order to retake this key city.

Unfortunately, the only place these terrorists are willing to go is Syria, where they can link back up with their allies in the provinces of Deir Ezzor, Al-Hasakah, Al-Raqqa, and Homs.

 

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is already combatting tens of thousands of Islamic State terrorists across the country; however, if this report proves true, the aforementioned terrorist group will receive a big boost in personnel near Palmyra and Deir Ezzor City.

Care should be taken to know when the convoys are about to leave and to go and say them hello with Tu-22M3 and Tu-160 with cluster bombs and… fully loaded this time, not with just 10*250-270kg bombs, which is laughable on a Tu-22M3 who can carry up to 24 tons payload… As Gandalf would say, They shall not pass…

It seems that the US is about to re-position her terrorists whilst claiming a massive victory in Mosul. And all this after a USAF planner declared recently that the ‘accident of attacking the SAA’ the other week that was amazingly followed within 7 minutes by an ISIS attack that the US took several days to plan jointly with ISIS 🙂

It is rather like group ‘Histrionic Personality Disorder’.

This article is ridiculous. As if the US or the KSA could even enforce such an idiotic idea if it was even something other than some really poorly thought out Russkie propaganda. So pathetic. Only thing stupider is spreading said propaganda.

Hey dipstick….this is not a Russian media site.
Most people around the world, are beginning to realise that the warmongering Americans have been in bed with ISIS and the Jihadi terrorists since the beginning of these wars

So stupid that just 10 buses and 35 SUVs just arrived from Mossul to Raqqa…
If you want propaganda, just listen to the White Helmet’s lies… Have some inquiry on them and you’ll see that the PR agency behind them was founded by a former brit military, probably a MI6 operative and that there are 2 oil companies around including the Rockefellers’
