ISIS To Hand Over Al-Tanak Oil Field To US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces - Report

On October 25, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) began advancing towards the al-Tanak oil field south of the Omar oil fields in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to Kurdish sources.

However, Syrian opposition sources reported that ISIS is preparing to hand over the al-Tanak oil field to the SDF without fighting within the framework of the previously reached agreement.

The opposition sources didn’t provide any additional information about the supposed agreement between the SDF and ISIS. However, these claims could be linked to the SDF-ISIS negotiations reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) back on October 22.

In a related development, the SDF claimed that it repelled an attack of ISIS backed by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on its position in Jafar train station north of Deir Ezzor city. According to the SDF, ISIS fighters attacked the train station while the SAA tanks targeted several positions of the SDF around the station.

Kurdish sources reported that 5 fighters of the SDF were killed in the SAA tanks shelling. However, the SDF and the Kurdish sources didn’t provide any evidence to support their claims. Indeed, ISIS positions are in kilometers away from Jafar train station. Moreover, the ISIS linked news agency Amaq didn’t report any attack against the SDF in the train station.

The SDF claims are a reflection of tensions between it and the SAA. These claims could be also a propaganda response to all reports accusing the SDF of negotiating with ISIS.

    Did not know SF is getting to be a partial gossip colomm.

    They said, others claimed. No backup.

    This is journalistic garbage.

    Pity.

    • Alex

      What are you talking about ? SF is reporting on what other parties have said, thus they are capturing the developing events, this is journalism, bringing the information about what happened to the public.

      They probably should have posted the links, but i’m pretty sure that you can find more information about that on your beloved kurdish sources.

      • dutchnational

        Yes, like a gossip rag. Quite right. I fully agree.

        • Alex

          So when a news agency is reporting on something politicians or an important party have said, that makes them a gossip rag ?

    • matt

      This is fantasy….

    • Eskandar Black

      Its been going on for month, its not even a secret. what a ridiculous kurdish troll. If ISIS wasnt giving you the oil fields, you would be fighting to get them as oppose to rolling through the place like you own the joint. American special forces dressed up as SDF, high fiving the head choppers, to steal syrian oil. Its a set back, but it pleases me to know all your friends will die soon.

    • Dawn of Svarog

      From you and your troll delusions made out of thin air, with 0 evidence and 0 gossip it sounds funny :)

    • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

      Have you ever wondered why IS/Al-Queda have never attacked the military and political structures in the US/EU/NATO gang? It seems to be the most ordinary brainwashed people, who then light candles and sing songs afterwards as their puny response. Meanwhile, the US/EU/NATO war apparatus make money from the Syrian/Iraqi misery.
      IS/Al-Queda have a deal with their US/EU/NATO/GCC sponsors.
      Proof?

    And the circus with all its farces continues.
    The public and perfect honeymoon between Kurds and ISIS after months of hidden engagement.
    Congratulations to the just Married.

    • TiredOfBsToo

      The US continues providing it’s blessing to it’s married couple. I would disagree with you on one thing. They’re not ‘just married’, they’re celebrating their anniversary.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        :)) You made me laugh, my friend.
        And yes, you’re absolutely right in your comment.

    • matt

      So, where did u get this info? Or did it grow in your imagination?

      • FlorianGeyer

        Its so good to see you here again Matt. How was the Zio Troll training course by the way ?
        It appears that you have not learned much as your attempts debate here are just as unschooled.
        Have you ever considered a job as a barista instead?

        • goingbrokes

          He’s got a job as a hasbarista already! :)

          I allready have my own small company, this is just for fun ; )

          • FlorianGeyer

            That is probably the first honest comment you have posted here Matt.

          • matt

            I have no reasons to lie to anyone, fortunatly

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Nop, Its just a metaphor to express my personal point of view of the subject that we all comment here, my friend.

        • matt

          Ooh, ok

      • martin aguilar

        Matt ´s info is only CNN, we all know it.

        • matt

          why should a european look at one of those stupid american news channels?

    • Wahid Algiers

      For these gifts they will pay a high price. First the ISIS buttheads then the betraying kurdish towelheads.

  • Solomon Krupacek

    if russia had balls, would hit them with one tactical. 5 kt nuke.

    • Thegr8rambino

      They would ask permission from Assad first I’m sure

      • Solomon Krupacek

        assad would give. otherwise, putin told tis in autimn 2015. i have saved his speech. ;)

        • Thegr8rambino

          Thats good :)) although probably not necessary now, considering how much ass SAA has kicked and territory retaken ;))

    • FlorianGeyer

      If Solomon had brains he would not post such nonsense :)

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i repeated putins spech, where he told, russia has no problem to use nuclear weapons agains isis. his word makes the man!

      • RichardD

        It’s his I’m an idiot look at me mo. I usually skip his posts they’re so stupid.

    • Frank Behrens

      If YOU had balls you would go as volonteer to syria and fight for the SAA .
      Well, we all know THAT will never (ever) happen…

      • Solomon Krupacek

        no boy, syrians must go to fight for their freedom! and after all of them fall, i will go.

        • Frank Behrens

          sure..you will go…but to which country? Seeking employment/asylum in the US ? GB? Germ.?

    • Alex

      Yeah, make sure that Syria won’t be able to exploit, nevermind getting those fields back, poison the evironment, yeah Syrians and everyone who lives in the neighbourhood would love Russians forever, give a reason to msm to bash Russia again, this would be really serious not like those “hacked election” allegation or the doping scandal. Fuckers are in deep shit themselves and they keep on provoking un so that we’ll react so they can say, see i told you, they are evil. The moment for our answear will come and when we will do so, the whole establishment will shitting blood again :)

    • PZIVJ

      We are all willing to pitch in to fly you first class to Syria, with some bagel money also.
      There you can straighten things out with the general staff. :D

      • Solomon Krupacek

        huh, the nazi is here!

        be sure, i would be better then assads shitgenerals.

        you must be happy. saa loses the war.

        bttw., you criticized my sentence, that for what saa needs 1 week, for the same advance sdf 1 day. sdf is also on level of mayadin ;)

        and you come here unshamed and write your hallucinatinis. brrrrr!

        • PZIVJ

          What was i thinking !!
          If you go to aid the general staff in planning, then all hope is lost for Syria.
          Is this why you said “saa loses the war” HAHAHA

        • BMWA1

          You could always post as your logo a KV-85 or JS-2, that would be fairly effective against a late model PZ IV???

    • Eskandar Black

      This maybe your dumbest post.

    • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

      No, that would allow the ISUSIDF to play the “innocent victim” for the next 100 years. What we need is lots of hd videos and photos to expose the love-in of the US with IS to the ignorant public in the US/EU/NATO/GCC/Israel cabal. The stench will reach even the most brainwashed.
      Don’t get hot, Solomon, get smart.

  • MH370

    At this rate i believe the kurds will capture Bukamal first while SAA still struggling around Mayadin. Sad and very disappointing.

  • goingbrokes

    I wonder how you put in an application to Daesh for the handover of an oilfield. I wouldn’t mind applying for one…

  • John Brown

    Soon the SDF will be crushed in Afrin by the SAA and Turkey, then on to Manjib and Kobani and all other major Kurdish controlled Syrian cites, just like in Iraq it will be a very easy rapid advance . Will the SDF still be sitting in these oil fields when this happens??? No!!!!!!

    • PZIVJ

      The Afrin area is defensive and also holds many non Kurdish refugees.
      So why more killing and bloodshed in Syria, do you speak for Erdogan or FSA ? :(

      • John Brown

        It’s the Kurdish leadership that has chosen this path no one else. The SAA did not force them to invade non Kurdish areas as they are doing now in Deir Azur etc. and to merge with ISIS. The Iraqi army did not force the Kurds to declare independence and try to take areas of Iraq that are not Kurdish. The Kurdish leadership doesn’t care as they will leave with their bribes, when their people they have betrayed die, having large foreign bank accounts, luxury mansions in Switzerland etc with expensive sports cars, hookers and drugs, when all the groups you talk about die because of the actions of the corrupt Kurdish leadership. I hope the Kurdish people realize this quickly and overthrow their corrupt leaders. The Kurdish leadership could have gotten great deals for their people in Syria and Iraq but no they took the bribes from racist supremacist Jews who just want to kill as many Goyim sin the Middle East as they can as the Talmud, Torah and Kabala tell them to do.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    Too much involvement of USA/NATO had ruin the outcome of the war.After so many sacrifices by SAA and Allies USA is giving wining to ISIS.The aim of this war was to create tourist to win the war and that is acxactly what USA is busy with.Claiming all the resources with moderate real terrorist.

    • Joe

      Whatever or whoever holds the oil fields in the end it comes under the central govt.

      Which most likely Assad would be in control. No such thing as division of Syria as far as SAA is concerned

  • electron

    IMO; this whole oil fields episode appears to have been a comprehensive deal involving Iraq & Syria, most likely brokered by KSA and RF as the two main mediators. It is most likely KSA’s influence that saw Baghdad recover Kirkuk and other areas so smoothly. In turn, Omar fields, and Iraqi border were to be given up by Damascus, thanks to RF’s influence.

    Considering the Kirkuk region has 150 times the volume of all of Syrian oil, it took no genius to determine which region was much more important to legitimize and control for the purpose of improving oil prices and output. Rosneft just announced agreement for buying a 40% stake in KRG pipelines, and developing at least 5 new blocks of fields, only, it is really the progression of NS2 and TS developments that is a good measuring stick.

    Ultimately, Turkey remains the biggest wild card here. I am sure that Ankara will use the friction between US and RF as its own leverage..

  • RichardD

    The SDF, Isis, Jew world order flavor of the month, anti government opposition force is holding the oil fields hostage by threatening to damage them. The Syrian government coalition is building their positions around them and inside them to recover them with minimum damage.

    As well as clearing a buffer zone around DE to set up air defense and armor hub for the eastern front free of mortar and artillery fire. To deal with the Israelistan phase 2 of the war. Once they get Iraq border and oil fields secured.

  • dutchnational

    Well, to drop another rumor in this sea of make believe, pro SDF tweeters report the SDF is at or near, as in a few kms, from the Iraqi border in the open deser of DeZ countryside.

    I am not going to say anymore, sign off for some time. I am a new granddad of a grandson and have a new set of priorities for the moment.

    Yippee.

    • Wahid Algiers

      Congratulations. I am a new granddad of a grandson since July this year.

    Once the SAA reaches the Iraq border at Al-Bukamal. The Tehran, Baghdad, Damascus highway can be opened for moving supplies overland to Syria and the Golan to help with ending the Jew terror wars in Iraq and Syria and the Golan occupation by the Jew cult baby rapers, and humanity’s evil Jew cult problem. It’s less than 100 miles across Azerbiajan from Russia to Iran:

  • Wahid Algiers

    These kurdish towelheads open their mouths and dirty lies are bubbling in the same way a zionist does it.

  • Bob

    How much cash, or whatever else, has CIA been outlaying to get ISIS on east side of Euphrates to just keep on handing over all this territory to US SOF/SDF?
