US-backed militants, operating under the brand of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), have made another attempt to justify their operations against the Syrian army and its allies in southeastern Syria, along the border with Iraq.

The FSA media wing released an “official” map of the military situation in southeastern Syria claiming that the US-backed force have some “frontlines” with ISIS in the area. The map argues that the FSA cotnrols wide areas north and northwest of the US-led coalition garrison in the border town of At Tanf.
The real map of the military situation in Syria:
Earlier this year, the US-led coalition and its proxies made an attempt to build a buffer zone between the Syrian army and its allies from the Iraqi army and the Popular Mobilization Units in Iraq. However, the attempt failed when Syrian government forces reached the border area northeast of At Tanf. Since then, the Syrian army has widely expanded its zone of control along the border with Iraq and now is advancing on the ISIS-held T2 pumping station.
