The US-led coalition has set up a new military base in Al-Zkuf, 70 km north-east of Al-Tanf near the Syrian-Iraqi border. According to the US-led coalition, the aim of the base is to fight ISIS. The base is located in 130 km from the city of Al-Bukamal in the province of Deir Ezzor. A US-backed militant group, Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra will be involved in the effort.

The US Special Operations Forces as well as units from other US-led coalition member states continued training Free Syrian Army (FSA) members in the Al-Tanf base. The aim is to prepare for an attack on ISIS in the city of Al-Bukamal. However, the FSA has so far prefered launching attacks on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the desert of Damascus.

On the other side, the SAA still maintains positions in 40 kilometers from the Al-Tanf base, as shown in a video posted on Saturday.

According to several pro-government sources, the SAA is still planning to advance to capture the Al-Tanf base in the nearest possible opportunity.

The real purpose of new US-led coalition base in Al-Zkuf is to prevent the SAA advance aimed at reaching the Syrian-Iraqi border. The Iraqi government as well as the Popular Mobilization Units may support Damascus’ counter-terrorism efforts in Syria.

This may also contribute to preventing Iran from transfering weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon, This is an Israeli demand.

They are in violation of international law there and shoud be bombed and pulverized then all other Terrorists! – Who is going with a terrorist risks to die with him!

      That’s the worst thing about the Israeli government for me. Not so much the fact that they don’t get along with the Muslims, but that they take advantage of US politics to pull strings and make the Americans fight their wars for them. The Americans then, with all their [warning for the sarcasm impaired] subtlety and common sense, make a mess of things and risk major escalation through their system of alliances.

      I’m pretty sure most people in the US and Israel don’t want World War 3, but if they keep yielding to the crazies inch by inch, they’ll eventually get there. All it takes is one ugly incident, and “national pride” to prevent the sides from backing down, and there we go.

        All nations are taking advantage of policies of any other for them relevant country. It is a fact of life. Or are you having problems that american policies are taken advantage of?

        China, India, Europe and Russia are going to take advantage of Trump abdicating US leadership on climate change.

        As for matters getting hairy in the wider MENA area, I agree with you there. Fact of life too is that all concerned countries are playing a part in the escalation of forces there, to start with Turkey, KSA, Iran, Russia, US and the local players, no exceptions.

    That is an express order from Israel: sever the land link between the eastern Shiia crescent and the western Shiia part at all cost. An the US dutifully obeys… the local goat fuckers are merely small, pawns to be used for cannon fodder. They cost cheap, max 500-600 $ a month each.

    • dutchnational

      Standard rate in Syria is below $ 200 a month. Iraq maybe up to $ 400 a month.

    USA completely supports terrorists in Iraq and Syria and prevent Iraqi and Syrian governments to not fight with ISIS and other terrorists gangs that US CIA have created. Let them to complete their job.

    So then Syria and their allies what looking for. They should have to fight and eliminate all USA nasty tricks and their terrorists training camps. Show them a lesson.

    The Jew world order parasites aren’t humanity’s only problem, but getting that problem resolved will make it easier to resolve the others. Like vilifying Russia as part of a blame shifting exercise to divert attention away from Jew world order crimes. When Russia is clearly part of the solution rather than part of the problem. And the US and Europe should be working with Russia rather than against Russia to help create a better future. Which the Jew world order cabal is opposed to, because they want to see Russia conquered and exploited.

    The Jew wars in the middle east, and the Jew wars’ terror attacks, 99% of whose victims are Muslims, are the the fabricated “war on terror”. That the Jew world order cabal is doing everything that it can to keep going. To avoid attention and resources from being focused on resolving humanity’s Israel problem.
