Militants Create “Eastern Shield Army”, Aim To Capture Qamishly, Haskhah, Deir Ezzor and Raqqah

Support SouthFront

Sources allegedly representing the Free Syrian Army (FSA) – so far there is no a united command of the FSA – have announced that a new FSA group under the name of the Eastern Shield Army (or the Al-Sharqiyah Shield Army) was formed in order to capture Qamishly, Haskhah, Deir Ezzor and Raqqah.

According to the sources the, Al-Sharqiyah Shield Army will fight the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and ISIS.

The group also released a video showing few poorly armed fighters during what appears to be a military training.

According to many pro-government and pro-opposition sources, this new formation is nothing more than a new propaganda stunt by the Turkish government. According to many pro-opposition sources, the Turks are allegedly trying to blackmail their American allies because Washington supports the predominantly Kurdish SDF in Syria.

From the other side, the pro-government media sees this announcement as another Turkish attempt to break the shaky ceasefire.

The areas liberated from ISIS by the SDF and the SAA in eastern Syria are relatively safe and peaceful. It looks like Turkey is looking to heat еру things up again in these areas. Ankara can’t directly interfere because of the US military presence on the ground. It once again went to use the name of the FSA as a tool to push its plans in Syria.

Keep in mind that al jazeera is qatari government media and back the proxy invasion of wahabi and mercenaries into Syria


Haha, what a stupid joke is this !!! Anyways these small innocent pockets could become at any moment instruments for other proxy groups


Erdogan’s Eunuchs – a better name for these idiots…


This is like the mighty army that could not take al bab for 4 months and had to have to take it by the TSK. There they had artillery support out of Turkey and had to invade Syria by 25kms.

If they go by Tel Abyad, they have to go 100 kms and more into Syria. No more artillery support out of Turkey and long supply lines.

It would hurt the SDF allocating that many fighters to the turkish front, but then they would have the chance to capture much hardware from the TSK and the rebel rabble.

If too many fighters of the islamists leave Idlib, Idlib will fall easily to Assad. That means another million refugees to Turkey.

All in all, propaganda.

Isn’t it a little late for April Fool’s jokes?

This is great news for Syria, Russia and Iran and possibly signals a big policy shift for Turkey. Hopefully Turkey sends all its head choppers from Idlib to Eastern Syria and northern Iraq to fight the Kurds and wreck the Yilon plan and help out the SAA to recapture Idlib and the rest of Syria and to maintain the borders of Syria Turkey and Iraq, then Israels plans for greater Israel will be put on hold for the immediate future as Israel will only be able to attack Lebanon, which will now have a much stronger Hezbollah.

Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat. “Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat,” he said to some laughter.
