Govt Forces Successfully Advance At Syrian-Jordanian Border. Rift Among US-backed Militant Groups

FILE IMAGE

On Friday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured Al-Dubaiyya and Wadi al-Sawt on the Syrian-Jordanian border, according to pro-government sources.

From its side, US-backed Jaysh Assoud al-Sharqia claimed that it repelled the SAA attack in the Damascus desert and that its fighters destroyed a SAA tank with a TOW missile.

Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin issued an official statement arguing that it will continue to fight the SAA and its allies, like the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU).

Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin confirmed in the statement that it did not receive any threats from the US-led coalition or any other parties, and denied that any of its groups have handed over its heavy weapons to the US-led coalition. Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin allegedly have only light weapons.

Earlier the US-led coalition said that it suspended its support to Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin. However, new photos from the desert of Damascus confirmed that Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin is still operating in the area controlled by the US-led coalition.

This disagreement has shown once again that the US is unable to control Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups that it supports in Syria, even if it’s in the field by their side apparently.

    Or is this a typical Judaeo /Libtard American deception whilst the US continues to supply her terror gangs ?

    • Jan Tjarks

      Probably both. The CIA never was very selective finding idiots fighting the US cause. This already caused so many rifts in the long term the US military had to address later on. Be it their former CIA agent Saddam Hussein, or the toppling of Mossadegh in Iran and so on.

    I fail to see the rift in this report that was alledged to in the caption.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Always the banal comment by one who supports others just as stupid and banal.

      • dutchnational

        It is banal not to notice the difference between the caption and the report itself. But on the other hand, critically reading an article, a comment, is not one of your strong points just like a minimal level of common decency is not one of your fortes. But please, continue ranting and not giving content. It will only decrease the impact of your comments.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          The only one being of a trivial nature is you since you only present such a narrow scope of the situation and continue to do so . Don’t be afraid of being critiqued when you omit too much information in your comments and only try to sanitize it so it suits your narrative.

      maybe u should read more carefully!

      “Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin issued an official statement arguing that it will continue to fight the SAA and its allies, like the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU)”

      “Earlier the US-led coalition said that it suspended its support to Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin. However, new photos from the desert of Damascus confirmed that Liwa Shuhada al-Qaryyatin is still operating in the area controlled by the US-led coalition.”

      “This disagreement has shown once again that the US is unable to control Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups that it supports in Syria, even if it’s in the field by their side apparently.”

      The “Rift” being that they don’t want to fight ISIS but ONLY the SAA!
      The “Rift” being that they won’t follow US orders!
      They are betraying their masters!

        Maybe.

        US ended its T&E program for ALL non SDF groups, at least, that is what they stated. It has long ben known that too much of the arms, money and training went to islamist groups, like the one(s) mentioned in this article.

        It has also long been known that most islamist groups prefer to want to fight Assad and the SAA, not their ideological brothers of IS etc. Islamists in the history of this civil war only fought with IS when IS tried to push them out of cities, areas, mostly with a win for the more fanatic IS.

        This what you call rift has been there for years and only got worse when under the influence of Turkey an added wish to fight kurds was instilled into the non-IS islamists. For IS that was not necessary as they were already genocidal against kurds and yezidis.

        The caption said rift among US backed groups. This article gave no rift among US backed groups. Just, like you mentioned, an old rift between US aims and Islamists aims.

        Btw, the same rift that stood and stands between Turkey and the US and the reason why US backs SDF and not Turkey. Turkey does not really want to fight IS, it want(ed)s to fight Assad and certainly the SDF.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Just a little warning about the US they don’t fully support the Kurds as they never fully support any other group , but find Turkey a better option in supporting of which they do covertly. The belief that you have in regard to IS being genocidal to Kurds is truly a joke since many Kurds share those very same Sunni views were found among IS and have been genocidal to the Yezidi and other smaller groups. IS and Kurds fighting are just Islamist groups fighting one another nothing genocidal about that.

          The US created those groups in Jordan which is a strong Sunni Islam Hashemite country, so there should be no problem in seeing them as Sunni ideology driven as they feel the Shia are their enemy. The US chose Jordan for that reason alone knowing it would be easier to use the religious divide strategy.
