On Monday, US-backed forces announced plans for “liberating Deir Ezzor city” and forming a “civil council” to rule the city after its expected liberation.

According to pro-Kurdish sources, “a group of tribal sheiks” linked to the Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC), which is a part of the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), released a statement claiming that the DMC and the SDF are going to liberate Deir Ezzor city “from the clutches of IS mercenaries”.

They also announced a formation of committees that will supervise the formation of the Deir Ezzor Civil Council to rule Deir Ezzor city and its countryside after its liberation.

Unfortunately, the group of sheiks didn’t reveal how US-backed forces are going to liberate Deir Ezzor from ISIS when a major part of the city is already liberated by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies.

Pro-government sources already called the statement a PR move aimed at showing to the international audience the SDF “good will” to establish a “democratic governance” in the area.

If US-backed forces really make an attempt to establish its control over at least a part of Deir Ezzor city under a pretext of combating ISIS, this may lead to an escalation between the SAA and the SDF on the ground.

The Hasakah-based Kurdish media outlet “Hawar News Agency” released a full text of the statement (SOURCE):

The Syrian Democratic Forces and Deir ez Zor [Deir Ezzor] Military Council began ” al–Jazeera Tempest” campaign as a first phase of liberating the city of Deir ez Zor from the clutches of IS mercenaries, which spread the destruction, killing and displacement through Deir ez Zor land. People suffered from the successive regimes which were characterized by depriving the people of the most basic rights, while their city swim on a sea of underground resources, people suffer from thirst while the immortal Euphrates River crosses the city.

Therefore, we initiated a group of clans’ notables to call for the establishment of a preparatory committee to discuss the foundations and principles of the establishment of the Deir ez Zor Civil Council similar to the civil council of different cities liberated from the grip of terrorism which managed the cities efficiently caught the attention and respect of the world.

Our discussions resulted in the crystallization of a common vision resulting from a preparatory committee tasked with following up consultations with clans’ sheikhs, social, political and cultural activities and notables of Deir ez Zor to reach a final form that expresses the aspirations of all our people in Deir ez Zor. This results in the construction of a civil council for Deir ez Zor concerned with the administration of the city as soon as it is released

Therefore, we in the preparatory committee, as well as the notables of the dynastic clans, declare our support for the campaign of “al- Jazeera Tempest ” and the Syrian Democratic Forces and consider it the legitimate holder of our dreams of liberation and the return of displaced people to their homes. We likewise call all the jealous youth from the villages and tribes of Deir ez Zor to the Syrian Democratic Forces and its participation in the honor of fighting terrorism and defeating it from our country.

We also expect all the clans’ notables and sheikhs of the city to take their initiative and to join with all their strength in supporting these forces and their participation in undertaking responsibility. And we hope that our political, cultural and social activities will be of the best help to the liberation campaign of Deir ez Zor, and may God support us with this”.

    The Kurds can announce anything that they want. It doesn’t mean much without action. What will determine the future of the war is the Russian’s ability to continue to provide the type of air cover for the Syrian government coalition advance that they have so far.

    And the US ability to do the same for their proxies. So far their proxies have had almost zero air cover. The question that needs to be answered is will that change for the Kurds? All indications are that the US has abandoned regime change in Damascus for now and is now planning partial regime change through a Kurdish secessionist attempt.

    There are now more reports of multiple Jew world order air strikes against Syrian government coalition forces:

    Coalition warplanes bomb Syrian army convoy near Deir Ezzor

    Unidentified Warplanes Hit the Syrian Regime Positions in Deir Ezzor

    If these are true, then Jew world order air assets are attempting to block the Syrian government coalition’s advance across the river to contain the Kurds and secure the Iraq border. If Russian air cover is breached, the Syrian government coalition advance will be stopped. And standing up a Jew world order Kurdish secessionist state will proceed. To be used for perpetual war and regime change in Damascus, Tehran, Moscow and Beijing. To usher in a high tech Jew world order global slave state.

      Can’t trust them as none of the western or any others are reporting this as they would be gloating.

      • RichardD

        Those are my thoughts also.

    Why is it whenever the SDF pose for photos after recent clashes and even during them they have no dust on their clothes.

  • Kell

    Lol they want to divvy up the oil and water for themselves – how cute.

    Did you actually read article.have you read the book by israeli author on origin of askenazi jews. No i dont believe in protocols of zion.

    Israels gov in last seventy years has acted in much worse way than protocols envisaged.

  • RichardD

    There are Syrian government coalition commando units on the other side of the river. Possibly dressed like Isis. Who may be slowing the SDF advance until the main force crosses the river with air cover and heavy equipment to begin a blocking and containment action.

    “Over the last two weeks, the Iranian military has increased its presence in southern Syria, a Syrian Army source told Al-Masdar from Izra’a, Dara’a.

    “Many Iranians are deployed as advisers and police in southern Syria, especially in the de-escalation zones,” the source told Al-Masdar.

    “We have seen a big increase in the number of Iranian soldiers this month,” the source concluded.”

    Too late Washington, SAA and Tigers are already in Dier Ezzore township – and unless planning an open ended and direct confrontation with Syrian state it’s all over. The SAA has a tactical disadvantage against US, but ultimately, the SAA has the strategic advantage against the US.
    That is, the SAA has to absorb periodic attacks of US warplanes against SAA and more recently even SyAAF forces. However, when the SAA absorbs these unfortunate losses and simply continues on with their military objectives, the US attempt to halt them just falls flat, as these US ‘messages’ are essentially politically driven – threats and attempts to generate pressure on Syrian leadership. But in reality, the US has very limited options in Syria, and Washington’s ongoing violent threats have very limited domestic backing – due to broad lack of support amongst US public for a direct US war against Syria.

    Do what ?, I even went back to the tope of the page to check the date….. are these rag head muppets having a laugh or what. I nearly fell off my chair when I read ……………..”“The Syrian Democratic Forces and Deir ez Zor [Deir Ezzor] Military Council began ” al–Jazeera Tempest” campaign as a first phase of liberating the city of Deir ez Zor from the clutches of IS mercenaries, “.

    Are we aloud to swear on this site; I better be cautious than “F..k..g moronic t.ats.”.

    Looks like the good ol’, US of effing A is in panic mode; so switch those S-400s on Russia and please SAA / Russia everybody you are even remotely suspicious of.
