Hundreds Of Iranian-Backed Troops Arrive In Syria’s Al-Bukamal – Report

Iranian-backed forces massing around Deir Ezzor city

Around 300 “Iranian-backed” fighters have arrived in the city of al-Bukamal in the southern countryside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor, the Deir Ezzor 24 blog reported on December 12 citing a local source.

According to the source, the troops replaced a large force of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), that withdrew from al-Bukamal over the last few days.

The source claimed that the fighters belong to a group named Army of the Imam al-Hajjah. Most of the group’s fighters are allegedly foreigners, likely from Iraq or Afghanistan.

“The most important positions, which were occupied by the new group in the city of al-Bukamal, are posts and headquarters on Corniche street, military points near Manhal Al-Maa and some farms that overlook the Euphrates River,” the source said.

Earlier this month, many sources claimed that mysterious airstrikes targeted Iranian forces near al-Bukamal. However, these claims were never verified by any independent source.

Recent Israeli and U.S. reports allege that the IRGC is building a large base southeast of al-Bukamal, a few kilometers away from the border with Iraq.

They should move to southern iblid and have the Iraqi militia control Al-Bukamal.

Tom Tom

instant war. They’ll do things more gradually until later they’ll have instant war.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

Maybe some here and some there

Jens Holm

Yes, and some isnt good enough. Assads as well as others has no non used reserves

Jens Holm

In Your dreams. All seemes to have their hands full. I the last month or rwo there has been more then 400 demonstraters killed.

Whatever that is, they cant helpt the dirtbags of Assads.

In Iraq we see a finally made Shiit Governess(which I dont like at all) having no trust in important matters for many many living there.

I have no idea about who is who. They probatlyu not even know it themselves:(

From above – Around 300 “Iranian-backed” fighters have arrived in the city of al-Bukamal in the southern countryside of Syria’s Deir Ezzor; fighters belong to a group named
“Army of the Imam al-Hajjah”.

Imam al-Hajjah – born in Iran, his date of birth is controversial, though it is usually listed as 202 AH (817/818); according to scholars he was of Arab or Persian origin; he is recognized as an Islamic scholar, particularly known as a muhaddith (scholar of hadith). His hadith collection, known as Sahih Muslim, is one of the six major hadith collections in Sunni Islam and is regarded as one of the two most authentic (sahih) collections, alongside Sahih al-Bukhari.

Why is this group of fighters honoring an ancient scholar, and calling themselves:
“Army of the Imam al-Hajjah”.

WEIRD !!!

George King

The answer was in your comment! “Arab or Persian origin; he is recognized as an Islamic scholar, particularly known as a muhaddith (scholar of hadith). His hadith collection, known as Sahih Muslim, is one of the six major hadith collections in Sunni Islam and is regarded as one of the two most authentic (sahih) collections, alongside Sahih al-Bukhari”. It is widely known that the composition of the PMU from Iraq is composed of Sunni & Shia fighters/defenders.

Iranian militias should deploy more air defenses in Abu-Kamal/Mayadeen and Damascus

Jake321

Sure and they will also be blown up by Israel and the US with impunity.

Larry Rabinowitz, Ph.D

And when that happens, I’ll be here celebrating. Mazel Tov, brother!

verner

dream on hymies.

Jens Holm

Its not forbidden to have a try.

Jake321

And it’s not forbidden that they be killed overwhelmingly in the try. But so far they are not so stupid as to try. Israel just blows them up with impunity in Syria and Iraq. Do understand that if the Islamist Iranians do make the try you foolishly hope they make, they will be blown up on a very large scale in Iran as well.

verner

it’s in the pipeline so don’t worry. seems the iranians have made up their mind to clear out the squatters once and for all but they need to do it properly and when they are finished, not one hymie left in palestine. rest assured.

Jens Holm

Maybee. I see a tranport hub being which might be defended well in their dreams. ISIS has stopped digging, so now they solve unimployment in Iran with those spendables.

Jens Holm

They can convewrt to Christianity and maybee get if for Christmass:)

verner

not bad, the Iranians are not prepared to give the lying thieving and murdering squatters any peace of mind and are obviously preparing to terminate the illegal presence of the hymies in the middle east. can’t go wrong. and rest assured that Russia has agreed to these deployment since Russia acknowledge the Iranian participation in the liberation of Syria as essential and you don’t abandon such a beneficial force – after all any force working towards the elimination of the squatters in the middle east is beneficial for the entire region, which is something you can’t say about the squatters.

Jake321

And in the meantime, Islamist Iranians are being sent home in body bags after all the continuing Israeli and US attacks,

verner

yeah but the iranians will have a home land to send the body-bags to whereas the squatters won’t since they will be without a homeland so I guess the squatters will be buried by the victors or forwarded in body bags to maybe the unhinged states of A, if they will have them. which is more than doubtful.

Jens Holm

Making people as squatters in You definition is completly wrong. Putting US as making lslam as it is, makes no sence. Most of ISIS as well as the other Jihadists sont come from our territories at all.

And if they do, like from Denmark, they are a less then 1% of the muslims here. Those squatters mainly are homies.

Franz Josef Kunz

Jens, I do not think you understand who in verner’s opinion are squatters…

Jens Holm

I do understand sandnigger beduins like verner very well.

Jake321

So says you but not reality. Israel is here to stay and if the Islamist Iranians are ever stupid enough to try what you would like, they might still have a homeland but one that glows in the dark with a much reduced population.

verner

time will tell hymie

Jens Holm

Its totally wrong using squatrers as You do.

Long Nose Larry, Ph.D

dont worry, Jacob Wohl’s Nose will locate mullah regime fighters and INHALE them all! trapping them in his kosher nostrils, then will EXHALE them out into the atmosphere where they will orbit the Earth!

Larry Rabinowitz, Ph.D

Hey Schmuck, shut the hell up you antisemitic piece of crap. You dumb, brainless schmuck. I bet you attend White aryan brotherhood rallies to. You little piece of trash!

verner

hey hymie, shut the fuck up yourself – infest some hymie-apologetic commentary field.

Long Nose Larry, Ph.D

Yes Sir, I will shutup now, Long Nose Larry :======================)

Jake321

Well, more for Israel and the US to blow up with absolute impunity. Along with their Islamist Iranian masters.

cechas vodobenikov

more evidence the impotent amerikun cowards whine like girls, do nothing! they r so feminized that the Syrian Army forces them to turn around—wetting their panties in the process….watching the US empire crumble and see destruct is a true joy

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

same lol :)

Jens Holm

Your middle name must be “too much vodka”

Jake321

You really see strange things at the bottom of your Vodka ration bottles. Or is it just in your delusional wet dreams after too much of that Vodka ration?

cechas vodobenikov

fascists like u c nothing…

Friend of Russia

So we can expect massive airstrikes and massacre by Israel at al buqamal tonight and Russia will sit back and watch as usual

Jens Holm

Thats not massacres at all but probatly close to suicide for many planned by Theheran – it succes.

Maybee Iranians will make a town below ground and grow mushrooms for food.

Mehmet Aslanak

SAA is well known as short in number of troops, so asking favor from Iranian mollas & Putin.
