US-Led Coalition ‘Will Not Allow’ Syrian Army To Cross Euphrates River In Deir Ezzor – Reports

Donate

On Saturday, the US-led coalition announced in an official statement that it will support the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC) advance towards Deir Ezzor city.

The US-led coalition said that it will provide equipment, training, intelligence and logistics support, precision fires and battlefield advice for the SDF and DMC during the operation.

The US-led coalition stressed that it will support the SDF until it fully captures the Khabur River valley. This could mean that the US is not interested in capturing other areas in Deir Ezzor governorate. Kurdish sources claimed that the aim of the attack is to reach Markada town south of al-Shaddadah town just to secure the US base near al-Sahdadah.

Meanwhile, a member of the SDF-linked Raqqa Civil Council claimed that Major General Rupert Jones, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the US-led coalition, said in a meeting that the US-led coalition will not allow the regime forces to bypass the Euphrates River.

Others even claimed that Jones threatened to strike any units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) if it crossed the Euphrates River. However, none of these claims have been confirmed by the US-led coalition so far.

In a separate development, the SDF fighters advanced in al-Mansour and al-Thkhnah districts in the centers of Raqqa city and in al-Nahdah district in the western part of Raqqa city according to Kurdish sources. The source added that SDF fighters killed 30 ISIS fighters and destroyed a vehicle of ISIS during their advance.

On Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) claimed that 15 SDF fighters were killed in clashes with ISIS fighters in Raqqa city.

Furthermore, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq announced that a number of SDF fighters were killed and injured in a VBIED attack on their positions in al-Barazi roundabout in the eastern part of Raqqa city.

Amaq also claimed that US-led coalition warplanes targeted by mistake –again- a unit of the SDF in Tal Abyad street in Raqqa city. According to Amaq 7 SDF fighters were killed in the friendly fire accident.

The SDF is now focusing its attacks on ISIS positions in the western part of Raqqa city. If the SDF captures the western part of Raqqa, ISIS will be in control of less than 20% of Raqqa city in its northern and eastern parts.

    Perhaps Major General Robert Jones would be advised to sit and reflect in the Officers Mess one evening whilst looking at the old paintings of British ‘Derring Do’ and to consider whether the current British Military support of the Illegal US invasion and their direct support of proxy terrorism in Syria is a worthy accolade for the British Army .

    so the US sees SAA as threat to their favourite SDF….ok lets take that as true and obvious.what about the Turks that see the SDF as the same as PKK and all as terrorists.what will happen if Turkey desires to expand the gap between the 2 (now) SDF regions.And where was the US when Turkey invaded Syria and blocked the Kurds of uniting the 2 regions they have gained from ISIS…..and lets not forget that Turkey has a friendly army of terrorists (moderate opposition) which commands, supplies etc.

    By chance the morally superior US military happens to be in Syria, so that if according to the syperior heavily armed IS vandal windbags the Syrian Arab Army gets above its station in its own country, these heavily armed visiting windbags shall deem it necessary to attack the legitimate army and government.

    Yes, because USA generals are experts in Geography, they think that crossing the Euphrates is the same as crossing the Mississipi river. So, the USA are heroes defending its country with all their heart and force.

    Just past the Euphrates are Syria’s oil fields. This is what the US and their Kurdish stooges are trying to steal. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ecd199867760ef42cd2306ece9e94d273ba0c1b2b2286672e29186f4cda539c5.jpg

    Hmmm

    US law prohibits aid and support of any terrorist group. Both the SDF and the DMC are neither freedom fighters nor in any way shape or form “democratic”. These 2 groups are mercenaries, agents and plain old fashioned terrorists directly and indirectly supported by the US and israel for the sole purpose of regime change and eventual annexation (theft) of a very large portion of Syria by israel. The US and israel are without question the terrorists and criminals in all of this. Syria is the victim and has been ever since the US/israel began their secret war of regime change nearly a decade ago.
