US-backed Forces Cut Off Syrian Army From Last Chance To Advance On Busariayah In Deir Ezzor Countryside

FILE IMAGE

On Wednesday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that its fighters captured al-Akidat and al-Bakaara villages 20km southeast of Deir Ezzor city.

SDF fighters killed 29 ISIS members and captured one another during the clashes there. Moreover, two motorcycle and a 12.7mm gun of ISIS were captured by the SDF in the villages.

With this advance, the  SDF cut off the only road that the Syrian Army had been able to use to reach and to strom the important ISIS-held town of Busariyah located on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

The SDF also captured al-Talabah village 40km southeast of Deir Ezzor city. According to the SDF five ISIS fighters and an SDF fighter were killed during the clashes in it.

Al-Akidat and al-Bakaara villages are the hometowns of Syria’s biggest tribes. Nawaf al-Bashe, the leader of al-Bakaraara tribe in Syria, is a supporter of the Syrian government, while many others in the both tribes support the opposition.

However, no one in these two tribes have supported the US-backed SDF so far. This for sure will make things more complicated for the SDF in the near future.

Meanwhile in Raqqa governorate, Syrian opposition sources accused SDF fighters of looting Raqqa Samra village, east of Raqqa city. According to the sources, the SDF looted all the houses in the village before allowing the civilians to return to it.

Syrian opposition activists also reported that Deir Ezzor locals are being blackmailed and robbed by the SDF on its checkpoints. The result of this aggressive behavior against the locals will likely surfaces after ISIS is defeated.

    Everybody needs to calm their tits. The more the sDF captures, the better because it thins them out. We all know that as soon as Isis is defeated, probably 80% if Syrian power will be focused on idlib and jihadist groups. The militants won’t be able to stand and they will surrender much easier than Isis. This will force them to accept whatever negotiations the Syrian government offers. The Kurds will not have any direct problem with the SAA until the ending of the war. After that, it will become just as in Iraq. The US won’t be able to back the SDF as Russia, Iran, Turkey, Iraq and other strategic geopolitical border countries won’t accept it.

    • Lupus

      I think u are right and that the Kurds are betting on the wrong horse. US will backstab them. I do understand them though. The US was the only power availeble to come to rescue when they were overrun and slaugtered by IS like in Kobane and Sinjar. Also to protect them against the Turk agression. But in the end they will find out the Yanks cant be trusted.

      • Serious

        “The US was the only power availeble”. XD. What a joke. These bastards kurds were living very well under Assad.

        • Axis of Resistance

          They rebelled early on, even. So they are part of the problem.

        • Ahmed K Hurmizyar

          yeah thats why he left them to them self in kobani

    • Serious

      It will not be the same as in Iraq because USA wants to kill Assad but don’t want to kill the iraqi president. So if the syrian army attack SDF, USA will respond.

      The first goal of ISIS was to invade Syria not Iraq.

      • Icarus Tanović

        Let’s deal with all, ISIS and liberate all borders from Libanon, Golan, Jordan, Daraa and all Iraqi border, then we’ll HAVE TO deal, with SDF one or the other way.

            What you did 23 years ago (if ever, claims are cheap) is of no interesst ,YOU called for a dealing with ISIS and SDF. (and I doubt that YOU did SOMETHING along this ine in Syria)
            Sure, SOMEONE should do SOMETHING …about the things which bother me

            I’ve been in the War, you fool.
            I wish I’m fuccking 22 years old, and had never been thru this Hell I’ve been through.
            I’d had great life. Maybe not great, but, surely pretty good, 300.000 times better than this I, currently living.
            Have a great day. And night. And all.

    • Floyd Hazzard

      Really? Tillerson said today they are never leaving Iraq even if asked. Now think again. You think they are holding the dams and oilfields and building bases for fun?

      • goingbrokes

        Are the yanks holding Syria’s strategic assets (dams, oilfields) for fun? Absolutely. They have no future there at all, so it is all for fun, trying to control their proxy forces. Tillerson’s words mean nothing, he already stated that “Assad must go” and we know what happens to people like that!

      • Joe

        Assad allies can block all exits that even US will have to give in as no exports would be allowed if in the unlikely event Assad with Russian air cover does not attack Sdf.

        US has only planes nothing else. So will Russia abandon Assad that saved Russian economy?
        I don’t think so

  • Jens Holm

    But SAA has moved all troops for any advance there to somewhere else or they are dead. Before that they made 2 stupid Eufrat crossings right into hard ISIS defend lines for what ?

    All could see they didnt have troops for it as well as it was exhausted ones in lack of supply. There also was no clver defence for almost Sukna once again. Very difficult to be impressed.

    After big losses and ISIS lost many too, SDF`s are blamed there are not so much ISIS resistance left.

    SDF`s are not blocking for anything. They systematicly take territory and clean for the last defenders of ISIS there. In that context SAA are not even able or allowed to take the other side of Eufrat to Abu Kamal.

    Very strange kind of warfare and as if SAA has nothing else to do then countrycrossing using few, they import from Russia.

    I hope SDF go on. It makes sense. Next will be a negosition for sharing the Syrian oil SDF`s having 20% of all of it and not only Jafra, Omar and like that.

    Thats a big changing. Before that the corrupt ones in Damaskus took almost all of it.

    Other dirty version in the name of spendable sheep could be SAA+SyAF making Raqqa into sand and desert as well as trying to take those oilfields from SDF by force.

      Not so quick, they get rid off ISIS! And FSA than. ISIS gone what will uncle sam tell their people! Staying in syria for regime change. PMU SAA Turkey will gang bang the SDF hard! No rush needed! the PMU already cut of the sdf from Iraq!

    It looks to me as if Russia and its partners from the US are building Kurdistan in Syria.

  • as

    Kurds isn’t as popular as they think. Hold or capture the territory and still can’t appoint themselves as the government. When the IS is history there’s always time to restore their control later.

  • Icarus Tanović

    America always nakes chaos and have ace.
    This time those fucckkers are SDF pigs.
    Americans just simply switched from helping ISIS to do all this nonsense disease to SDF, and after the fact that thay will, eventually loose SDF as well, they’ll switch to FSA.
    After that maybe they’ll be trying to directly hit, Syrians, but ain’t gonna work that way, either. One thing all of us can, perceive is that US politics loosing fast paced.

  • John Mason

    When push comes to shove the Kurds will leave. So far the SAA has been rather lenient.

    The consolidation of the national sovereignty will be swift and decisive! Can’t wait for the SAA to clear up this cancer from their country.

  • Bruce MacKinnon

    If the Kurds are going to fight SAA it is not a battle they can win, surrounded by Syria, Turkey and Iraq, who will all be v hostile. SAA might sit back and let Turks finish them off. The US are desperately trying to use them to cut off the imagined Iran highway. Really this is all about Likud’s ideas. ‘But soon Netanyahu will be Netanya Who?

  • gustavo

    Of course, this was expected and predicted two weeks ago,

  • PATRIK

    the SAA fell into a deep sleep and the tiger forces are only kitties. They do not want to conquer Busariyah, otherwise this lethargy can not be explained. The SDF “conquers” villages with 29 !! killed ISIS fighters. Fighters, that would be an arena for an army defeated by the exhaust fumes of the tanks. They want, or are not allowed, to. That’s the only explanation.

  • YODA

    The yanks, as always, have already back stabbed the Kurds… yanks are like the snake in Jungle Book….
