Donate

Amid clashes in al-Qaryatayn, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have launched a push towards the ISIS-held town of Mayadin in the Euphrates Valley.

According to pro-government sources, government troops advanced 10km towards the ISIS stronghold and outflanked the ISIS-held village of Muhassan.

Meanwhile, reports appeared in pro-government sources that the SAA have taken back Al-Taybah village and Qasr al-Hayr al-Sharqi Castle from ISIS near the town of Sukhna at the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor highway. A fighting is now ongoing near Dahiq Mountain.

    Isis are consistently blocking paths to SAA while SDF is advancing like they are on vacation. Evidence are clear.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Arguably pushing the SDF back from their ill gotten gains could be easier than fighting ISIS as long as the US air power is neutralised.
      The US will have to consider whether WW3 is worth dying for Israel.

      • George King

        It won’t be for Israel but the US petrol dollar. The criminal transnational cabal will only be dealt a death knoll through its collapse or solicited sell out from the multi-polar forces rising.

      • Jens Holm

        Seemes like WW3 has already hit You.

        • FlorianGeyer

          That’s fine by me. Its a sad fact that most Europeans will not demand to know the REAL reasons for terrorism in their towns and cities until its on a scale that we again witness today in Los Vegas USA.

          It is time to ask our governments ‘ Why are you supporting regime changes of sovereign nations with the use proxy terrorists ? Why are you doing this in OUR name ? ‘

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Glad some of them are ok , the guy committed suicide and that’s a no no for jihadi fighters. This I hope is not a false flag , but it would show you how much they are truly animals if such is the case.

          • FlorianGeyer

            If the US deep state has any sense they will deflect all attempts to blame ISIS for the shootings as the Truth always surfaces and the increasing evidence and opinions that the US is actively involves with ISIS and Al Nusra would almost certainly cause a civil war in the US.

            The Israeli deep state may be intelligent enough to play these Machiavellian games but I can assure you that their Useful Idiots in Congress and the Senate, including Trump are not.

            We live in tumultuous times :)

      • Lone Wolf

        @disqus_mO3EFbQsle:disqus it won’t come to WW3 … US knows that they have already lost in Syria .. All the rest of the Western force on ground like Britain and Canada have already withdrawn their SFs from Syria …
        US is still there because they are just being belligerent … The whole reason for US to be involved in Syria was to curtail the Iranian influence and prevent Iran having a land corridor to Syria to Iraq and to Lebannon. This is almost achieved by Iran already …
        US must have been devastated when Iran and Iraq announced a Joint military exercise together ….

        • Kell

          Yeah the British Empire is making some interesting moves lately, repositioning with regard to China and some actions in the Middle East – could be a precurser to flushing the jews down the toilet.

        • Julio

          It is said that u.s and its gang are already defeated, I do not think so, they only would accept it when they would be like in the end of Vietnam war position, that is, in a dilemma: desperate evacuating or being captured. Remember the last helicopter sitting in the embassy roof in Saigon and hundreds of people trying to get on it? and the helicopters being thrown to the see from the carriers? the time I see them in a similar situation then I would say the Syrian war is coming to an end.

          The u.s has still the Kurds and SDF cards. With the Kurds, the Balcanization card and with the SDF, the oil and gas fields control card. If the Syrian Government wants to avoid this, then a costly prolongation of the war must be fought.

          Another point is the weak position from Russia toward the u.s, for me is totally inconceivable how Russia handled the General´s killed incident. If they had discovered that alongside with isis there were the u.s special forces, instead of a warmly and harmless communicate they must have bombarded those rats altogether

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            I do not think you can compare the Syrian war with Vietnam apart from the usual statistics.

            I understand the potential of the SDF being the next ISIS, but many of the Kurds are Syrian Kurds who will have to live in the aftermath of this disaster but many of them can just f-off home to their foreign lands. Until recently they were actually fighting the ISIS scum, but would they really fight their fellow Syrians – I doubt that; maybe some minor conflicts, but to go head to head with them would be a disaster for their future survival in Syria.

            As for “Another point is the weak position from Russia toward the u.s, for me is totally inconceivable how Russia handled the General´s killed incident” …….. I disagree totally. You seem to forget the immediate elimination of 2000 yank muppets, the final warning given to the US and their deployment / moving of the S-400 + other surface to air systems into strategic positions, the state funeral given to the General and many more strategic moves. If I was American or Israeli, I would be bricking myself.

            It is extremely important to take into account the different cultures of differing nationalities. Even the Europeans think the Americans are “gung-ho” whereas the Europeans, well the Northern Europeans are far more reserved; but just a few words or actions can tell you a great deal, the Russians are the same, maybe even more so and as for the Asians !!!!.

            Get the beers in and sit back and watch, hopefully it will be over in 6 months.

          • Julio

            I would like to be agree with you but “facts” are “facts”, Russia killed 2000 terrorists but what they should have done was to wipe out the terrorists with the “embedded” yankees special forces. Furthermore after a high Ranking Russian General killing, I have not seen the Yankees desperately leaving Syria, that was the reason I did the comparison with the “end” of Vietnam war

            On the other hand, the yankees are also “embedded” with Kurds, SDF and even still isis, who will convince them to leave?

        • RTA (Bob or Al)

          Yes, I was pleasantly surprised by the withdraw of the UK troops. I would also note that in my view, we only got involved with a minute force after some serious bullying by the US and basically did diddly squat.

          I wonder what is being said and done behind the closed doors of the European, Canadian, Australian, South African (+ many others) governments; It would not surprise me, if they are planning a World without the US empire and the dollar.

          God, I hope that I live long enough to see that day happen.

          • Thegr8rambino

            Me too i have become so ashamed at what my country has become

      • sagbotgamot

        Of course, the US is beholden to zionist Israel.

    • dutchnational

      Crybabies.

      Grow up man and stop wining.

      • Alex

        Same for you filthy shit.

        Ok, let’s not mix up Saa with USA, take a look at the map of Syria and
        surrounding countries,yeah, got it in front of you? okay, now tell me,
        how on earth isis members and the rest of mercenaries could have
        travelled through surrounding countries to iraq and syria with weapons,
        with all those toyota trucks without anyone noticing them, i mean come
        on aren’t those countries in so called US-led coalition that supposed to
        fight isis? Shouldn’t they stop them ? Ah ? Isis is Saudi-Western baby,
        you have nurtured him, bought oil from him, trained him. You filthy
        shits are responsible for the mess in ME.

        • dutchnational

          Autorepeat?

          • Alex

            you get the point :)

        • Jens Holm

          You use USA in the same way You use AliAkbar. Hope You get better results in the future. NO REALISM.

          You even put in saudi babies. Do they ake Your diapers ?

          • Lone Wolf

            @Jens .. I don’t get what you are trying to imply .. apart from name calling .. are you saying that ISIS were purely a local phenomena ..? made up of local people only and that no one from other country ever travelled to Syria for War.. ?

            More than 30 thousand young Saudis and Qatari men crossed border to go to Syria to join ISIS … Saudis and Qatari govt. never stopped them even though they knew they were going to Syria to fight .. Their govt conduits (third party) supplied them with military hardwares, money etc …
            Turkey opnely supported ISIS .. by letting them thru the border and back with no interference … Turkey was the worse .. They were eager to nurter ISIS …

            But I know that you are fully aware of this … i just trying to figure out where you coming from … I hope you are not one of those people drunk on US Kool-Aid …

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The Kool-Aid Guy visited his house when you said that apparently stops at Jens and dutchnational’s house all the time that’s said. Think Kool-AID Guy might be installing fountains there soon.

    • jklahsd32 laksd13

      its no big deal to me if kurds get gains, but the fact that usa is so involved in helping isis indirectly really bothers me. cia and their dirty work.

      • Jens Holm

        You might freqént facts. If US supported ISIS as You assume SAA wasnt there at all.

        • RTA (Bob or Al)

          ? what ?.

          • Jens Holm

            I try again.

            If it was true US gave them weapons, ISIS would be better and SAA would not have advanced that easy.

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            Oh no, I am sorry but you are very wrong there.

            I shall leave it with one sentence / paragraph and I mean no insult.

            From your comment, I think you have no idea of what has happened or who the good and the bad guys are; I should also add that the SAA who represents the people and the government are fighting for their Country as opposed to US money.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      in aleppo and raqqa was opposite situation. is assad allied with isis?

      • gustavo

        Are you kidding ? There is not way to think that, and this question has not place in this war. However, it is possible to think that there was a Russia-USA agreement about the area that USA troops (kurds) could occupy in Syria.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          my question was ironic. and for greywolf. of course saa is not allied with isis. but also kurds are not.

          • Lone Wolf

            @ Solomon Krupacek .. Kurds may not be allied with ISIS .. but they do co-operate with each other passively .. their own YPG web site announced recently that 30 ISIS members had defected to SDF in recent fighting…..
            That you will never see happening with SAA …

          • Solomon Krupacek

            thjis is not evidence. unfortunately almasdarnews is down. i can not show you an article. last week isis members decapitated sdf members. such big cooperation.

      • Alex

        Ok, let’s not mix up Saa with USA, take a look at the map of Syria and surrounding countries,yeah, got it in front of you? okay, now tell me, how on earth isis members and the rest of mercenaries could have travelled through surrounding countries to iraq and syria with weapons, with all those toyota trucks without anyone noticing them, i mean come on aren’t those countries in so called US-led coalition that supposed to fight isis?

        • Solomon Krupacek

          why not mix? isis never fought continuously. they defended some area, some others not. in palmyra fist ime they were active. second time not.

          and you changed the thesis: here was about resistence of isis, not attacking strategies of saa or sdf.

        • Jens Holm

          You dont understand it, because You are stupid. They are not You. You even has seen their convoys has be captured and evaporated, when they are seen.

          I cant see any others are in that way of taking risk and so often win but sometimes hit hard.

          The extra troops are from Iraq, becuse there are figting in east as well as crisis about kurds.

          • Lone Wolf

            @Jens … and in which way do you think that he is stupid .. ? or is name calling all that you can do .. ???

          • Kell

            Jens sooks a bit when his precious Kurds get called out.

          • Alex

            It’s you who doesn’t get because you’re stupid, oh no, you’re an ami, i’m not talking about the past 2 years but years before that, all of those countries were profiting from oil and gas sales for a low price and Russia has documented all of those oil exports to Turkey, not one of those countries did anything against them, they had a free pass through their territories, they kept on growing untill russians started their campaign against isis and other western proxies, then the west got scared that Russia would make them look bad with better results in a much shorter time period, that’s when they started to participate actively, Mosul, Rakka etc etc, before that they were sitting on their butt and were stealing resources.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            They are from Iranian Kurdish Dem Party militia and not Iraq , PKK from Turkey in KRG and they are fighting no one but the Iraqi govt and the people. Barzani the King of the thieves is even being called out all the money he stole from Iraq and the KRG govt. employees he hasn’t been paying for years, seems like the Iraqi Govt has to pay their salaries again.

    • Rob

      If somebody kill ISIS commanders who are controlling by CIA then its so easy to liberate these areas.

      • Jens Holm

        far out.No wonder You have so many flags down there.

    • gustavo

      Of course, but one had expected this long time ago. This is not something that could cached us at once right now.

      • Jens Holm

        Facts say no. If ISIS and SDF had joined years ago Assad would hardly be an Emir of Tripolis.

    • TiredOfBsToo

      It’s Syrian territory and Kurds will either have to relinquish to Damascus or face Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq just as Iraqi Kurds are having to face Iraq, Iran and Turkey. Right now, a no-fly zone over the Iraqi Kurds, the oil tap turned off to Turkey and a border blockade; not good for long term survival of Iraqi Kurds, something they’ll soon figure out. It will be no different for Syrian Kurds east of the Euphrates.

      • Jens Holm

        I think thats not comparable. In Syria they have asked for something else being a minority even “east of eufrat”.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          It is comparable because there’s 2 groups of Kurds. You have the SDF, which is allied with the US while grabbing as much of the territory containing oil and gas while Isis allows them unhindered passage through territory it controls and at the same time keeps the SAA busy with massive attacks. Then there’s the NDF which is the group of Kurds allied with the SAA just working to rid their common land of all of those imported terrorists and their supporters from the Gulf states, Israel and the west.

          • Jens Holm

            Far out. You move focus to USA in spite things among kurds and the rest has beeen there for decades.

            I think You should see USA and we more like helping hands for very different wished solutions.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            Aware of Kurdish issue in the region since World War and redrawing of boundaries in the Middle East.

            The Kurds however, are being used as nothing more than foot soldiers in a proxy war against Russia in the Middle East. We’ve witnessed direct attacks on the Syrian army and allied groups while in battle with terrorists while the coalition bombed in support of Isis. The raising of the water levels in the Euphrates from the dam controlled by the Kurds and US to impede the Syrian government from crossing and fighting terrorists on the other side etc. etc.

            Better the Kurds worked with the Syrian government than allow themselves to be used as a proxy.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The whole entire infrastructure in Northern Syria is run by the Syrian Govt as they already run the oil wells in the region Kurds basically suck at administration soon the dams will be turned over. The Kurds might be looking at deals in the future and sell out the US in the region not all within the SDF share the same vision.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            “….not all within the SDF..”

            Aware of this, I just hope that the majority will see the light and just negotiate with the Syrians. My understanding is that a hand has already been extended by the Syrian govt. to the Kurds…. we’ll see what the Kurds ultimately decide.

          • Kell

            The Yazidis joined the PMU

          • RTA (Bob or Al)

            If I was a Yazidi; I would too.

            PS Don’t forget the Christians as well.

          • dutchnational

            In fact, there are several Yezidi militia’s.

            The peshmerga have a Yezidi militia of some 6-10k.
            There is the YBS, PKK affiliated, up to 2k
            and some hundreds joined a PMU but I do not know if they have a separate force within that PMU.

          • dutchnational

            NDF is not a kurdish group at all.

            NDF are local syrian militia/low level military all over within Syria. Some 100 to 150k??

            Within the Northern Syrian Region, there are some NDF forces in the govenrment enclaves of Qamishli and in Hassakah. The last were ejected as a result of a spate between NDF and Asaysh there.

            The NDF in Qamishli government held areas are two groups. The Sotoroo, pro Assad local Syriacs, and NDF proper, local arabs.

            There are no NDF forces that are kurdish, though I do not doubt you can find some kurds in them.

            There is yet another organised kurdish Syrian militia, Rojava Pesh Merga, loyal to Barzani and stationed within the KRG. They number somewhere between 3 to 10k.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            I stand corrected on the NDF the NDF being an assorted assembly of various groups fighting with the Syrian army which contain a variety of groups and is NOT a KURDISH organization. Thanks for pointing that error out.

            I am also aware that there is a Kurdish group in opposition to Barazni among those fighting in the eastern part of the country. I still believe though that the Kurds attempting to grab the oil east of the Euphrates will end along the lines of the Iraqi Kurds; i.e. blocked by Iran, Turkey, Iraq and Syria and forced to negotiate with the Syrian government…. they won’t get to keep their land grabs.

      • Thegr8rambino

        Yup the sooner they realize the cards are stacked against them, better for everyone lol

    • Hanny Benny

      Baghdadi says last: “Turks and Kurds will have a big war”.. that’s exactly his target, to drive turkey in a chaos for jihadization. Indeed a ISIS-emir gives the order to let the SDF reach the SAA in DEZ for provocating confrontation and upset the turks.

      • Jens Holm

        who is

    • Jens Holm

      Yes, SAA are unorganized and ineffective as too often.

      • dutchnational

        It would depend on the unit. SAA have some better organized and trained forces with above standard equipment.

        Many, but not all, of the rest are substandard, poorly trained, poorly led, poorly armed.

    • Kell

      Where did you think those Isis commanders went the US flew out to “Northern Syria”?
      Whats in Northern Syria?

  • Zainab Ali

    the zio satanic terrorists are perm losers in whatever they do … God’s justice prevails inevitably

  • dutchnational

    If SAA is serious, then their advance on Mayadin is the only real way to advance. Imo it means sacrificing their bridgehead as SAA does not have, nor has SDF, unlimited manpower.

    Advancing on Mayadin means taking the city or the advance is senseless.

    SAA performance the last few days has been bad, very bad. Awful one could say.

    Now that Tiger forces are again in the region, they might do better.

    Meanwhile HTS is profiting from their absence.

    Can it be that that was one of the IS objectives?

    • Ziønist šhill

      SAA is not giving up that bridgehead. When the time is right, they will use that bridgehead to take the oil fields back from the SDF. This is at a later stage, perhaps even after Idlib has been cleared.

      That is the whole reason Russia helped establish a bridgehead in the first place – so they are already established on north side for when the time is right. I’m correct about this and as they save that bridgehead for later I will be proven right.

      Your land stealing kurds will have no choice but to retreat north.

      • jklahsd32 laksd13

        very correct, syria, iran, turkey, and iraq are all against kurds, if the kurds didnt back stab syria then maybe assad would let them go and keep them as allies but they joined usa instead. and it is a possibility that there will be fighting between kurds and saa.

        • gustavo

          There is not such a fighting between SDF and SAA because SDF are USA troops in practice. So, fighting SDF is the same as fighting USA, you will see, and this would be a terrible mistake. Much much bigger that the mistakes made in Aleppo, Palmyra, and the delay on crossing Euphrates river.

          • Jens Holm

            Thats as usual a matter of definition.

          • Lone Wolf

            @gustavo … LOL … SDF are a militia group only .. your assertion that somehow they equate to US Troops is just fancifully laughable … and for US service personnel … a little insulting …

            You should quit drinking the US supplied Kool-Aid .. try and stay calm….

      • Jens Holm

        Well, Im sure the bridgehead also is made for taking that side of DEZ. Now they have to, because they dont let the fresh and well supplied SDF`s do it.

        Come and help us, and we will airstrike You, so You dont forget Tabqa.

    • Sailesh Kuturu

      Well said my Friend, SAA performance near Dier Ezzor is pathethic and so is Russian movement. After crossing Euphrates river they lost a golden opportunity to cut off SDF and capture oil fields. It was a disaster. Looks like something is cooking up behind the scenes. Russians are not willing to use their state of art weaponry which could have decimated ISIS and advanced the SAA. They must concentrate on Oil fields, these bloody fools are ignoring such vital positions. If they are not able to break ISIS defences then air drop commandos on those oil fields with sufficient weapons including heavy machinery untill the regular army paves its way.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        Keep in mind that there’s only so many troops available to fight the terrorists and … that the terrorists had years to setup their bases while the “Coalition” flew site seeing flights over their convoys. Add to that the sudden increase of water in the Euphrates from the dam controlled by the SDF, a lack of any Isis resistance to Kurds passing through their territory and outbreaks of heavy fighting all over Syria by Isis with the Syrian army as if being guided by the “Coalition”. I believe the oil is important, but the Syrian people are more important to the Syrian government as it should be. Dealing with the Kurds will come later.

        • Jens Holm

          Let me remind You thats an unfriendly attitude, but Turks systematicly has done it against SDF as well as it disconnected water to Aleppo as well as much farming.

          ISIS has done it too at Raqqa. It seemes to be a weapon of today for everybody.

      • Jens Holm

        I really dont get that sick focus at oilfields. Its very selective local matters. What about the rest and the realtionships to SDF`s. Its as if some oil solves everything. I cant see that at all.

    • Jindrich Trapl

      When manpower is limited for SAA and SDF, why even SDF didn’t cut of highway to Omar and going streght to oil field and instead of that is going to Markada ?

      • Solomon Krupacek

        where is markada?

        • Jindrich Trapl

          Nord direction from As Suwar check map here http://isis.liveuamap.com

          • Solomon Krupacek

            Thanks. Probably the want to secure that road.

        • Jens Holm

          Show Your level well. Marqada is a hard fortification in the Khabur valley which has made many problems for SDF to keep all the way to Shaddady as well as Hasaka clean.

      • Jens Holm

        You dont seemes to be familiar with the distances as well as ISIS do resist and the also has been striked by SAA.

        They have to cross Khabur river first and take some town and villages there as well. Im sure the mainroad to Al Omar fields are defended and its a relative good terrain for defence.

  • El Diablo

    Seize all the west bank of the river first. You must fight the Kurds anyway :D

    • Jens Holm

      I expect SAA do their duty and croos Eufrat at Maydin and take the rest.

      After all SDF is not the reason for the uprise. Why should they die for Assads ?

      • Kell

        Oh they will die in a Turkish,Syrian,Iraqi,Iranian grinder

        • Jens Holm

          They might die, but at least they now are able to fight back. They take their chances.

    • Kell

      Yeah they are going for Mayadin/Omar

    • χρηστος

      i think US and Russia have and understanding there. They let the SDF (not only Kurds but former moderate terrorists as well, lets not forget this) to clear or lets say trade the territory with their buddies of ISIS on their side of the river and SAA deals with them on the other side.the crossing build on the river is safe and remains there as a threat to sDF to stick to the deal.

  • gustavo

    Of course, one could expect that SAA can move, after strong fighting with the terrorists, to south. However, they have lost already Syria oil fields in Omar thanks to the incredible delay of SAA in crossing the Euphrates river. Now, Syria will be divided with a probability close to 1.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      And today lost quayratayn, too :(

    • Jens Holm

      Omar isnt lost at all. Its east of Khabur river. Its seemes You need more then a geografi lesson. SDF seemes to have take Jaffra Field west of Khabur.

  • ColinNZ

    Clearly al qaeda, SDF & ISIS are coordinating attacks, probably under the direction of their master – the US – to stretch and punish SAA & allies forces … perhaps Mayadin should wait so that the SAA can repel these attacks and reduce the large losses that are occurring now. It beggars belief that SAA & allies did not see this coming, and allowed themselves to be so dangerously overstretched in this way … and, as with Palmyra, with tragic consequences.

    • Jens Holm

      10.001 arabic nights of excuses being ineffective fools are comming zoooooen.

        @jens .. “…effective fools..” is that supposed to be a slur against SAA … ? They broke the sieze in Deir ez-Zor didn’t they … ? Even when the US bombed them … where were the YPG before then.. ? may I suggest … YPG are the real fools for doing the bidding for US .. ‘cos in the end .. US will abandon them … not that hard to figure that one out …

          I dont care about what You write making them to this and that. They are a lousy army and has hardly made any improvements since 1967.

          Let me turn it around. They lost DEZ as well at very much of the Country incl. Raqqa, Manbij a.s.o.
          ………………………………………
          I can see You as many others always put in USA as the big one. Well, kurds there are diveded by 4 big ones, which has been the alternative for many years being slashed as being hardly little sisters and brothers as only psycopatic big brothers do and are learned to by their lim or something.
          ……………………………………….

          I can only see the Syrian Goverment abandoned the ones in Syria as well as many others. In Iraq the terrible Saddam are replaced by Shiits of exact same kind as only reducers of minorities in rights, so they can grab oil in the same way.
          ………………………………………..

          Kurds/SDF have their own agenda, so if americans stay its good for the kurds. I not they get extra problems. So be it.

          Its nor kurds fault in Syria as well as in Iraq so many 1000`s are killed as well as being refugees and for billions are demoliched. I cant see that.
          …………………………………………

          I cant see a lot here can figure anything out. If so that uprise, where kurds hasnt participated has never happend.
          …………………………………………

          If so kurds , jews and usa also have written the Choran to keep all down in a low obeying non thinking ypoursef level as well as jews has kept Your economics in the most primitive outdate version from ancient time with grat succes.
          …………………………………………

          You deny any changes and blame is for it. Thats most of Your overwhelming part of it. I see some of the worst in the system is treating women as second class citsens runned by old men. Our women are all 100% in most matter and add an important intellectuel as jobrelated difference in all levels. 6 of 12 policedistricts in Denmark fx are runned by voman and the biggets – Copenhagen is. Before that Copenhagen was runned by a women too. And why ? Beacuse they were the best for the job and not because of gender but education, skills and hard work paid pr hour.

            @disqus_4i0qg70fp2:disqus …. LoL….

            They could use a translation site to clean it up and choose not to.

          • Jens Holm

            You probatly cant understand my english because some languages are much more simplified then standard english in advanced mode and dont reach that far.

            Mine reach that wider, but my english isnt 100% and I dont care but still improve a little.

      We all saw this coming.

    seems to be like..they want to encircle ISIS/SDF

      Do You know what a cicle is.

    This is a mistake. The problem with advancing down the West bank of the Euphrates is that the SAA will eventually have to cross back over the Euphrates again to get to the Omar oil fields. And the Kurds only have to cross the Khabur river , which is really just a creek they can wade across.

    Instead they should follow the Kurds down the East side from Khusham Village and wade across the Khabur creek too, side by side. There are obviously less ISIS on the East side of the Euphrates and they don’t have a bridge either to protect the Omar field.

  • RichardD

    The Syrian government coalition probably already has intel, commando and other blocking units in front of the SDF advance in enemy territory dealing with both the SDF and Isis. It just isn’t being publicized for security reasons until the main force moves the front lines forward on the east side of the river.

    • Kell

      Kurds blamed the Russian Spetzsnaz/SAA Commandos for the Isis raid on them the other day.

      • RichardD

        Special forces sometimes dress to blend into the environment. With leading Kurds making openly seditious statements, working with Mossad and other elements responsible for the war, and blocking Syrian government activity on Syrian land. They’re setting themselves up as an enemy force and legitimate target for Syrian government coalition military operations.

        The government has tolerated this as a lesser of two evils, compared to Isis, situation. But the Kurds are obviously part of the Jew world order regime change operation. And with the Kurds playing both sides of the coin, in terms of limited cooperation/noncooperation with the government, it wouldn’t surprise me if the government is also. Until they get the level of cooperation from the Kurds that they’re looking for.

        With the battle against Isis winding down. The government will be in a much stronger position to put more pressure on the Kurds on an as needed basis. And that’s probably how the issue is going to work itself out over time. I don’t see the government allowing the Kurds to set up Israelistan II in northern Syria to cause problems for decades to come. They were given regional autonomy in Iraq and used it as a bait and switch operation to proceed with a secession attempt. To pursue Jew world order regional divide and conquer machinations.

    Mmm they are going for omar and leaving the top oil fields to the Kurds – Wonder if the Tigers are back on deck?

    • Thegr8rambino

      Trustin told me they are back in dez, getting ready for mayadin :))

  • RTA (Bob or Al)

    Very clever. Of course the SDF will waltz through to what seems as anther river, whist unfortunately the SAA will have to fight, but I just wonder if the Russians and Syrians have dropped some special forces in the North East of the Omar field to block the SDF from crossing.

    I am sure there is a lot that we don’t hear regards tactics.
