A commander of Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC) of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Ahmed Abu Khawla, declared a start of the SDF advance towards the border with Iraq on Wednesday, according to a SDF-linked media outlet Hawar.

According to Khawla, the SDF already started the operation and was progressing in order to liberate Sour area. The SDF is also aiming to liberated areas east of the Euphrates and eastern areas of Deir Ezzor from ISIS.

“Sour area, adjacent to the Iraqi-Syrian border, is 50 km away from the city of Deir ez-Zor [Deir Ezzor]. This area includes many villages are still under the control of ISIS mercenaries,” Hawar quoted the DMC leader as saying. “Our purpose of liberating this area is to expel ISIS mercenaries from vast geographical areas, from the lands of Deir ez-Zor and from the rest of Cizîre’s territory [Jazira Canton of the self-proclaimed federal region controlled by the SDF ].”

Khawla added that the SDF pretends to take control of “the triangular border area between Iraq and Syria, which is the link between Cizîre and eastern Syria, and west of Iraq.”

Eearlier on Wednesday, the SDF claimed that it has seized 80% of Raqqah city and is advancing further against ISIS inside it. If the ISIS defense fully collapses in Raqqah, this will allow the SDF to redeploy more forcest towards Deir Ezzor frontlines.

On Tuesday, the SDF already started deploying additional equipment preparing for further advances in eastern Syria.

    Terrorists and their sponsors mustn’t be allowed to advance any further in Syrian lands. SAA should focus efforts for this purpose.

  • DJ Double D

    The reason for this optimistic announcement is that the battle of Raqqah will soon end as a source in Raqqah is claiming that US has offered huge money to the remaining ISIS commanders inside the city to surrender and be airlifted to a safe zone or anywhere of their choice. The source said that the battle will indeed come to a close sooner than previously anticipated by the experts. The reason for this is because of the situation in Deir Ezzor where the price is very high. US is also offering money to some commanders over there – some to concentrate more power against the Russians and SAA and other to leave their positions so the Kurds can quickly capture them and foil the SAA plan at liberating her territory from ISIS. This is looking ridiculous now from the American side. Remember, they keep talking about fighting ISIS but it is clear that they are after Syria’s resources.

      This is all very interesting.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      it is not necessary. the frontline is extrelmy shortened in the city. it is enogh less troops, that means they can transfer part of them to another front.

  • Zainab Ali

    show the proof, where are the dead isis terrorists, sdf are typical liars just like their zio masters

  • TheSecular

    If I were Russia.
    I’d give them one last warning: Let the Syrian Army Liberate most of Deir Ez Zor or You will meet the same fate as the Wahhabis. There’s no Third Option.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      but russia is weak for confrontation with yanks

  • FlorianGeyer

    Its time for Turkey to do something useful and attack the Kurdish enclave to give the Kurds a dose of their own medicine. It is also in the interests of Turkey as well.

    • Skagos

      Turkey was preparing for an operation to Afrin last week(its now 2 weeks by now i guess) but got cock-blocked by Russians.

        An attack on the Kurdish/Turkish border by Erdogans forces North of Deir Ezzor city would be good :)

          why? little commie, where turjish soldiers come, there stay.

            Turkey performed tens of operations into Northern Iraq and never stayed.

            are you sure? check better.

            Tis better to have Turks in the Kurdish enclave than the US and Israeli militaries.

  • DJ Double D

    They have already captured around 15 kilometers of road towards Al-Suwr. Their aim is to capture Markada. This is ridiculous. We can see a situation where SAA will loose this thing big unless something happens very quickly.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      no. democracy = rule of people (demos). that means, tere are elections. democracy has nothing with human rights. e.g., in switzerland only in the 70-ties of 20th century got the women rigth to vote in elections.therefore in ancient athens was slavery democracy (persians freed the greek slaves), in usa also slavery democracy, and hater democracy (the death indian is the good indian), and olso the people democracy is democracy. the truth is, the democracy is the biggest whore in the history of menkind. :))

        Schwitz started voting in 1230 before the Switzerland

        Today Switzerland is voting about 30 times a year.
        They can oppose any government decisions,
        propose new laws and are controlling taxes…

        Few years ago the Government decided to buy Gripen jet-fighters
        a referendum said NO ! (lol)
        They even had the opportunity to suppress the Army,
        but the “Initiative” lost the votation… 45/55

        Taking one year with another, centuries after centuries,
        it’s works and everybody looks happy, peaceful and prosperous(lol)

        • Solomon Krupacek

          you are right. i wrote about women. vote = democracy =/= human rights

          • AlexanderAmproz

            To vote in the US, France, etc. is a none value vote,
            give it to who you want, it doesn’t change anything !
            Their Governments do what their Zionist Puppeteers want
            France Democracy is done with cobblestones, strikes and Rallies.
            In the US it’s the National Guards(lol)

            Democracy is by the Peoples for the Peoples !

        Democracy is a highly misunderstood and abused term in popular culture and the media. The actual reality is, across the western states, there are systems of representative democracy and proportional representation democracy. These are not direct democracies in ancient sense – modern citizens do not regularly gather in forums and vote on ongoing specific issues – rather a periodic individual vote is for a set-term representative, who will theoretically pursue a course of direction based on a party ideological platform.

    ONE WAR CAN HIDE ANOTHER

    After the Caliphate, Rojava

    by Thierry Meyssan

    While the Syrian Arab Army, the Russian aviation and Hezbollah are preparing to finish off Daesh, the Pentagon is planning a new war against Syria, this time with Kurdish troops. Just as the mission of the Caliphate was to create a Sunnistan straddling Iraq and Syria, so the mission of « Rojava » is to create a Kurdistan straddling the two states, as the Pentagon has been publicly stating for the last four years.

    This map was published by Robin Wright nine months before the offensive by Daesh into Iraq and Syria. According to this Pentagon researcher, it rectifies the map published in 2005 by Ralf Peters for the reshaping of the Greater Middle East.

    According to US grand strategy, as defined by Admiral Cebrowski in 2001, and published in 2004 by his assistant Thomas Barnett, all of the Greater Middle East must be destroyed except for Israël, Jordan and Lebanon.

    Consequently, the imminent victory against Daesh will change nothing of the Pentagon’s intentions.

    President Trump is against the manipulation of the jihadists. He has stopped the financial and military support that his country was giving them, and has managed to convince Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to do the same. He has modified NATO policies in the matter. However, nothing yet hints as to whether or not he will also oppose the Pentagon’s grand strategy. As far as the US Interior is concerned, the whole of Congress is in league against him, and he has no possibility of preventing a procedure for destitution other than negotiating with the Democratic Party.

    Donald Trump has composed his administration of ex-senior civil servants from the Obama administration, a number of opportunistic politicians, many improvised representatives, and very very few trustworthy personalities.

    His special representative against Daesh, Brett McGurk, is an ex-collaborator of President Obama, and is supposed to serve Trump’s new policy. On 18 August, he organised a meeting with the tribal leaders to « fight Daesh ». However, the photographs he published attest to the fact that, on the contrary, several of Daesh’s leaders also participated in the meeting.

    In the same vein, helicopters of the US Special Forces exfiltrated two European leaders of Daesh and their families from the outskirts of Deiz ez-Zor, before they could be taken prisoner by the Syrian Arab Army on 26 August. Two days later, they also exfiltrated about twenty more Daesh officers.

    Everything looks as though the Pentagon were storing away its jihadist structure and conserving it for other operations elsewhere. Simultaneously, it is preparing a new episode against Syria with a new army, which, this time, will be composed around Kurdish forces.

    This war, like the war against the Caliphate,was announced four years ago in the New York Times, by Robin Wright, a researcher at the US Institute of Peace (equivalent to the NED for the Pentagon). It also planned to divide the Yemen into two states, potentially shared between Riyadh and Abu Dhabi – and finally, last but not least, to dismember Saudi Arabia.

    Meanwhile, the « Rojava » project corresponds to Israëli strategy, which, since the end of the 1990’s and the development of missiles, is no longer concentrated on controlling its border regions (the Sinaï, the Golan and South Lebanon), but on taking its neighbours from behind (hence the creation of South Sudan and eventually, Greater Kurdistan).

    The recruiting drive for European soldiers for the « Rojava » project has only just begun. A priori, it could assemble as many combatants as there were for the jihad, insofar as the members of the anarchist groups which provide manpower are as numerous in Europe as common law prisoners.

    Indeed, the jihadist network began in French prisons before becoming a generalised « crusade ». It is probable that the recruitment within the anarchist movement will also spread as the conflict goes on. Washington, London, Paris and Berlin, who organised this recruitment, planned in the long term. I use the word « crusade » deliberately, because these wars in the Middle Ages, like the one we have just experienced, were in fact European imperialist operations against the people of the Greater Middle East. It is just as grotesque to claim that there is a link between the message of Christ and the crusades as to claim a link between the Prophet and jihadism. In both cases, the commanders were « Westerners » [1], and these conflicts exclusively served Western imperialism. The successive crusades bled across two centuries, and the majority of Chrisitians in the Levant fought alongside their Muslim compatriots against the invaders.

    Not long ago, the French Minister for Foreign Affairs, Laurent Fabius, publicly declared that President Assad « did not deserve to be on Earth », and confirmed that the jihadists were doing a « good job ». Many young people answered his call by joining Al-Nusra (Al-Qaïda), then Daesh. Today, the French ex-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bernard Kouchner, publicly announced that France would support the creation of state which would include Iraqi Kurdistan and the corridor to the Mediterranean via Syria. A few young Europeans have already answered this call, and many others will follow.

    Today, as in 2011-12, the Western Press has taken the side of this new anti-Syrian army, supported by their governments. It will never question the treachery of Abdullah Öcalan, who renounced Marxist-Leninism for anarchy. It will repeat that Kurdistan has already been recognised by the Sèvres Conference, in 1920, but it will avoid looking at the documents which specify its boundaries. It will believe it to be legitimate in Iraq and Syria, although it is currently situated in Turkey. It will ignore the fact that the frontiers in fact correspond to nothing other than the plans developed by the Pentagon.

    The referendum for the independence of the Iraqi region of Kurdistan and the territories annexed with the help of Daesh will launch the beginning of this operation, on 25 September. As in 2014, it will be intended to simultaneously destroy Iraq and Syria, this time without creating a « Sunnistan » from Rakka to Mossul, but a « Kurdistan », on a territory linking Erbil and Kirkuk to the Mediterranean.

    What are these kurds talking about…. there is not border with Syria. They are in Syria land. They are stealing land from Syria. SDF (kurds USA-puppets) have to back off !!, point. SDF are just opportunists which are handle by USA and do only what USA tell them to do. Probably SDF are not terrorists, but…..how well SDF cooperate and coordinate with terrorists.

  • Lupus

    Its a wrong historic mistake move of the Kurds. US backstabbers will not protect them in Efrin, Manbic and other places in Rojava against the Turks and their mercenarie puppet’s. SAA will turn against them while they once protected them in Manbic and Efrin. The arab tribes from SDF will become enemies as soon as ISIS is defeated. DeZ aint their soil. They should only give their lifes to liberate Syria from ISIS not to fight fellow Syrians.

  • According to Khawla, the SDF already started the operation and was
    progressing in order to liberate Sour area. The SDF is also aiming to
    liberated areas east of the Euphrates and eastern areas of Deir Ezzor
    from ISIS.

    So when the US backed SDF comes up against the Russian backed SAA?
    How big will be the flames of war.
    SAA fighting for their country.
    SDF invaders and occupiers with occupation, greed and plunder in mind.

    200,000 Israelis expected in “Kurdistan” once independence is declared

    According to the magazine Israel-Kurd based in Erbil, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and Massoud Barzani, the self-appointed President of the future independent Kurdistan, have reached a secret agreement.

    Tel-Aviv is committed to installing 200 000 Israelis of Kurdish origin in Kurdistan.

    The announcement has been widely repeated in the Turkish, Iranian and Arab press. The plan to create a South Sudan and a Kurdistan has been an Israeli military objective following missile development at the end of the nineties. These territories, largely administered by the Israelis, have enabled a rear attack on Egypt and Syria.

    Out of the 8.5 million Israelis living in Israel, around 200,000 are of Kurdish origin. In March 1951, “Operation Ezra and Nehemiah” (named after the biblical persons that organized the flight of the Jewish people from Babylon) permitted 11,000 Jewish Kurds to emigrate from Iraq to Israel. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee of New York funded this operation. The planes used for this air lift were made available by the Cuban dictator, Fulgencio Batista.

    The Barzani family that governs the Iraqi Kurdistan with an iron fist, is historically connected to Israel. Mullah Mustafa Barzani, father of the current president Massoud Barzani, was one of Mossad’s high official.

    The Israeli Prime Minister is the only head of government to have publicly declared his support of the creation of an independent Kurdistan outside the historic Kurdish territory (which would also be to the detriment of the indigenous populations).

    Despite the prohibition declared by the Iraqi Constitutional Court, a referendum will take place on 25 September 2017 with a view to declaring this new State.
