Syrian Army Shells Positions Of US-backed Forces On Eastern Bank Of Euphrates River

Illustrative image

On December 21, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shelled several positions of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of al-Busayrah on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA). These claims are not yet confirmed by any official sources.

One day earlier, units of the SDF’s Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC) attacked SAA oppositions in the village Khasham north of al-Busayrah, acceding to Syrian local sources. The sources revealed on December 21 that twelve fighters of the SDF were killed during the failed attack.

In a related development, Kurdish sources claimed that the SAA is coordinating its “attacks” on the SDF with ISIS. The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) that dominate the SDF also claimed that there is a deal between the SAA and ISIS in Deir Ezzor governorate to “block the Kurds”.

YPG and Kurdish sources claim are not only baseless, but they also contradict with the reality according to pro-government sources. According to this version, the SDF was the side that attacked the SAA in the village of Khasham on December 21, according to several Syrian sources.

This wave of Kurdish accusations against the SAA was highly expected by observers after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad described US-backed forces in eastern Syria as “traitors” during a meeting with Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin on December 18.

Such acts by the SDF in general and especially by the YPG prove that the group is not willing right now to work with any other side but the US.

    haha this PKK terrorist are so funny

    • FlorianGeyer

      I wonder if the Sdf gang are in fact ISIS fighters who changed their badges to Sdf insignia in the last couple of months ?

      • as

        Their statement no longer hiding that they’re only just ‘the kurds’ not anything Syrians or Democratic as their name implies.

  • Jasminko Grdic

    Hope that PMU and IRGC are on the way, the SAA need to clean Idlib and don’t have time for this Isrehell/CIA games with PKK/YPG

  • grok

    Any excuse to call-in U.S. bombers.

  • Attrition47

    Hmm, it’s all getting a bit tricky for the kurds, the Washington barbarians are dumping them; they need to sort out a deal with Assad toot sweet.

    • FlorianGeyer

      ” toot sweet ”

      mmm, The correct wording is ‘tout de suite ‘ in French , that is usually shortened to ‘tout suite ‘ in English, even in Quebec. :)

      Unless of course you meant ‘ toot ( as in a car horn) and sweet ( as in a candy etc) ?

          Possibly he did, although it would make little sense in the context of his post. Only the writer knows the answer to that :)

          ‘Hollywood English’ is never a good form of education. :)

        LOL

      • Ace

        Do they speak English in Quebec?

        • FlorianGeyer

          English and French. French is the dominant language there but as in France itself, many English expressions have been adopted there, just as some French expressions have been adopted in other languages.

          You could spend your entire life in Montreal… and never have to learn a word of french (tho’ you might have not-a-few unpleasant experiences, thereby). However, the further you go into the depths of Quebec, away from the english-speaking regions of North America, the more and more french becomes an absolute necessity for you (other than as some wildly-gesticulating, passing tourist).

        Subtlety is a learned skill, mate…

  • dutchnational

    Would not surprise me one bit to hear it is true.

    Everybody knows Iranian leadership is egging Assad on to attack the SDF.

    So maybe they got their wish, even if it is just for one day.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Dutch, surely you have more important things to do that write your drivel here ?

      Perhaps there is a hole in a dyke you can stuff your finger in to prevent the water pissing all over you ?

      • Bill Wilson

        You obviously have nothing better to do than to write bullshit here.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Touché :)

          I doubt the analogy passed you by Bill.

    • northerntruthseeker .

      You still here, Hasbara/JIDF agent? Your stupidity is showing again, and you should probably go back to your controllers for another assignment…

    • Garga

      Thank you.
      In the last few days there’s a coordinated attempt to blame Iran for any Kurdish mistake. both in Iraq and Syria. Barzani gang opens fire on Kurds and Kurdish “experts” in TVs blame Iran and General Soleymani for that.
      The same experts who called Barzani as Kurdish “nation”‘s hero, now say general Soleymani ordered him to do all kinds of horror and treason.

      Repeat as much as you can: Iran did it in ME, Russia did it in the rest of the world!

    • Ace

      Assad already said he wants all of Syria back. How is he being “egged on” by Iran on this?

    • Jim Martin

      The the Iranians and the SAA need to be the subject of coalition air power

      • grok

        The USA needs to be broken up and its leadership hanged.

    ————–
    Then ….. is there anybody there ISIS doesn’t have a deal with?

  • Денис Черкасов

    Evrrything as Silo ve said. SDF was wroking with ISIS and then they r starting to develope info campaign that it is Syrian Army who s working with ISIS. Ordinary US infowar strategy. Lies everywhere.

    How many mercenaries retreated to the east bank during and after the capture of the Deir Ezzor to Al Bukamal corridor? Surely a nifty new shirt does not make a brand new man…

  • Tudor Miron

    Kurds should take the “dumbo of the year 2017” award. They don’t see what happened to Iraq’s Kurdistan, they can’t comphehend reality and US dollars keep their leaders happy. They really are that dumb – they think “We’re different than all others (even Iraq’s kurds), we’re better. Because of that great Master (US) would not throw us under the bus as it did with everyone”.
    God help them when there will be time to awake.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      listen to lenin: learn, tudor, learn, learn!

      so, if you would finish secondary school, you would know, that already the ancient greek philosopjher from ephesos told: you can not twice step into same river.

      • Tudor Miron

        Yes, you can’t step twice into the same river but Kurds step mutiple times in the same sh$t.

        • Solomon Krupacek

            nice!

      • BMWA1

        But that was Herakleitus, not Lenin.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          yup. but lenin tolsd to russins, they should leran. and if learn, will hear about greek philosphers :)

      Yes, but no. Hope that’s clear.
