        For destabilisation of Syria… USA is there for a reason.

      • igybundy

        Its the main highway for trade between southern Iraq and Damascus.. The other road is for northern Iraq and Syria. It adds like an extra 1000KM to the trip.

      • Bill Wilson

        From what I recall, the US went into that region before ISIS appeared in Syria and all the fighting was between the SAA and local rebel militias. At the time a huge number of refugees were trying to reach Jordan along the N-S and E-W highways that meet at al-Tanf plus those roads were being used by arms smugglers that were supplying the various rebel militias. The US decided to set up a base at al-Tanf where they could build a refugee camp since Jordan couldn’t absorb any more plus control the traffic on the two highways to force the smugglers to take more dangerous routes thru the desert or on roads still controlled by the SAA. The US expanded the area under their control to block lesser roads to the north that the smugglers were using and to have a zone for training new recruits for the FSA. Today the US is going to stay there to prevent Iran from using the highways.

        • Paul

          Bill, what you recall are media reports with lots of information left out. The US aids, funds and trains extreme Islamic terrorists for the geopolitical purposes of Israel. They don’t care about refugees they just create them by systematically destroying nations that don’t conform to their concept of ‘democracy’.

    • xTheWarrior22

      The refugees in Rukban must be strong to survive this they have already been there for 2 years I think. Soon they’ll be free.

      • igybundy

        Hardly any refugees left there, they were evacuated in the last few months. Only ISIS families living there now. oh yea the liars of the desert who also get paid by the US.

        • xTheWarrior22

          ~20000 still live there.

    • Joe Dickson

      More like 3 weeks. The French are pulling out because the US is stopping the logistics train.

      • Tommy Jensen

        Out or more in? If you are pushing it more in, you are not pulling out.

  • Sasan Jamshidi

    Get the hell out of there USA get out NOW traitor!

  • jorge

    Curious, SAA is recovering much more territory without clashes than the Turks and their headchoppers are occupying with the clashes still going on. What this mean?

    • MH370

      putin chess game? prffffttttttt

  • PZIVJ

    SF, Please get rid of those US flags.
    The are cluttering up the map! Replace them with Syrian. :)

    • Tommy Jensen

      You cant live in an illusion but have to recognize facts which is also truth.
      Our boys are there, our boys cleaned out the terrorists, and our boys will still be in Syria for a looong looong time securing innocent civilians and freedom in Syria.
      These facts don’t become fake news because you delete US flags on a SF map!

  • χρηστος

    just read that that US troops are taking positions on the highway to stop SAA from reaching Manjib. Turkish dogs are racing for the control of the city. US still playing a very dirty game there openly no same.

    I am firmly pro SDF. I used to be pro US. However, I must admit the US under previous presidents used to be a country I admired. The US under this president is a despicable international actor. Bent on getting small advantages for US at momentous costs to anybody else. But hey, America first, right?

    America used to be influential, due to the many allies it had. Had as they do not have allies anymore. It will become their downfall, unless they mend their ways and president.

    • Mike

      Fuck off kurd lover.

    Syria Live Map is showing a larger Turkish advance today than Syrian Civil War Map. Syria Live Map is also beginning to show Syrian government control in former SDF areas where the SAA is now deploying.

      The Turkish advance is occurring in Kurdish minority areas. This is where the Turkish ethnic cleansing operation appears to be starting before it moves to the Kurdish majority areas.

    “Ethnic cleansing

    After the Turkish-led forces had captured Afrin District (Afrin Canton) in early 2018, they began to implement a resettlement policy by moving their mostly Arab fighters[43] and refugees from southern Syria[44] into the empty homes that belonged to displaced locals.[45] The previous owners, most of them Kurds or Yazidis, were often prevented from returning to Afrin.[43][44] Though some Kurdish militias of the TFSA and the Turkish-backed civilian councils opposed these resettlement policies, most TFSA units fully supported them.[44] Refugees from Eastern Ghouta, Damascus, said that they were part of “an organised demographic change” which was supposed to replace the Kurdish population of Afrin with an Arab majority.”
