On March 4, the Syrian Free Army (SFA), the main proxy of the United States-led coalition in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf, announced that a new group of militants had joined its ranks after completing an extensive training course.
A graduation ceremony was held for the militants near the coalition’s garrison in al-Tanf. The ceremony was attended by senior U.S. officers.
Around 200 U.S. troops are usually deployed at al-Tanf. The coalition maintains a 55-kilometers no-fly zone around the garrison, which blocks a strategic highway between Syria and Iraq.
The U.S.-led coalition has been working to expand the SFA, formally known as Army of the Commandos of the Revolution, for a while now. Last year, the coalition appointed a new radical leader for the group, then went on to reorganize and rebrand it. The coalition also approved a plan to boost the SFA’s ranks with more than 2,000 new militants.
The SFA main task is to defend al-Tanf garrison and the surrounding 55-kilometer zone in cooperation with the U.S.-led coalition.
Al-Tanf garrison came under attack on several occasions in the past. The most recent attack was on January 20. Three suicide drones targeted the garrison. Two were intercepted by the coalition, while the third hit a compound. Three SFA militants were wounded. A shadowy pro-Iranian group calling itself the Islamic Resistance in Iraq – al-Warithin Formation claimed responsibility for the last drone attack.
The coalition and the SFA stepped up defensive measures around al-Tanf after the attack. Suspected spies of the Syrian intelligence were reportedly arrested and leaflets with instructions on how to report suspected caches, that could include drones or anti-aircraft missiles, were distributed to people living near the garrison.
With support from the U.S.-led coalition and thousands of new militants, the SFA could soon launch an insurgency against Syrian government forces.
U.S must leave my country Syria in one piece, they destroyed every living thing in it.
The whole “Syrian civil war” plot became a disaster for Zionists and their treasonous slaves in the government, in the intel and in the military once Putin intervened. What’s the point of baby sitting a bunch of sand in the middle of the Badiya for the Israeli masters, when Iran keeps smuggling SAMs, ballistic missiles, radars and other weapons systems from Tehran into Iraq through al-Qaim, into AlBukamal through Syria and into Lebanon. The treasonous Israel-first slaves are a bunch hypocrites and losers. How can they point fingers at Russia when they’re doing the same thing in Syria. Slava Putin. Slava Bashar Hafez al-Assad.
I laughed when you said Iran smuggles weapons to Lebanon. It means you are aware of the sword dangling over hezbollah’s neck.
I laughed when Putin invaded Ukraine and ruined Netanyahu’s plan to have the US fight Iran for Israel to the last US soldier.
After wagner fighters finish in Ukraine they should go and eradicate every Luciferian proxy in syria.
They will be eliminated swiftly if Turkish forces are threatened.
Only 2,000 militants. So pathetic. They are clowns.
Why do you consider this force small?
Previous article mentioned they are supposed to be assigned to terrorist provocation in Russian sphere of influence.. Russia, Kazakstan, etc.. That would make more sense than an insurrection in Syria.. Next question is: how long is this gona be tolerated
Thats one place Russia and Iran could hit Americans,take Tanf off the bloody map.
Another .. Tactical Ballistic Missile from İran Zagros Mountain under ground base. İn 8 minutes 35 seconds. And Booom. Usa remember the al assad.
Thats what needs to happen.
We are beyond cruel to Syria for no justifiable reason. We pinch them in the south with Al Tanf and Israel. We pinch them in the north with HTS and the Kurds. We rob them of their meager resources of oil and forbid countries from selling them civilian necessities.
If there is a just God, He will punish the strong who oppress the weak.
And in the previous article the U.S. claims it drone striked a ISIS leader, yet at the same time they are being trained and protected from the Syrian army at this Al-Tanf base.
Here we got sunni wahabbi pimping his dad out the back door of the wahabbi brothel as usual……lol……motherfuckers never learn!
Freaking Psionists, their Israel-firsters and Sunni-Wahhabis are the Ménage à trois from hell.
This could be the right time for the Turkish admin to get some payback for the US coup which tried to remove a sitting Turkish president. Between the Turkish airforce, the Syrian airforce, and the Russina airforce, they could soon have this US scab removed from Syrian soil. The same could be done in the north of Syria and Iraq.
This is so f*cked up to say as a Canadian but I hope that illegal base gets blown up.
Bribery to commit crimes without fear of prosecution is very appealing to poor people everywhere . Especially when corrupt people with unlimited money and no morals or ethics approach you under pax americana (at gunpoint). Those who live by the sword..
