US Special Operations Forces Carried Out More Operations Near Deir Ezzor

According to the “Euphrates Post” website, the US Special Operations Forces carried out an air landing in three sites in the ISIS-held area in eastern Syria last Monday night. The operations were supported by the US-led coalition’s fighter jets.

According to the source, US forces landed in the area of the Maizala Dam, the desert town of Granig and the surrounding area of the T2 in Al-Tanf in the Al-Mayadin desert.

According to local sources in Deir Ezzor, the T2 station is one of ISIS logistical centers and a large ISIS arms depot is located there. . Sources added that in the Maizala dam three US Black Hawk helicopters had landed nearly 60 US soldiers. According to local sources, the Maizala dam is an empty area.

Locals said that US Apache helicopters provided fire support for landing troops. Some UAVs were also reported in the area.

After the US Special Operations  Forces withdrew from the sites, ISIS stepped up his forces and deployed dozens of roadblocks on highways.

On April 19, ISIS announced in Deir Ezzor mosques that US troops had landed in three different areas to evacuate spies who used to work for them. If true, the US evacuated spies from the ISIS-held areas four times this month alone.

    Why russian SOF dont do this ?

    • Paulo Vieira

      Spetsnaz do not need markting.

    • NeoLeo

      Because they do not have zillion agents among ISIS troops who need to be evacuated. The real question is: why (and how) do they have so many ‘spies’ near Dear ezzor? they are obviously very important for some reason, I doubt americans risk their own lives just to evacuate some irrelevant ragheads.

      • Bill Wilson

        The spy the US extracted north of Deir Azzor was the commander of Tabqa before ISIS leaders sent him and 4 other commanders to a safer location, presumably Mayadin since that’s where ISIS has been relocating their capital. His car was intercepted while on the road. The ones they recently retrieved may have sneaked out to the dam and outside of the airfield to await rescue at a predetermined date and time. I’m sure they’re more commanders and officers who can provide a treasure trove of valuable information on the status of ISIS units thru out Syria and their current plans of action.

      CIA is spending millions to buy information from people under ISIS control and ISIS members, they have a whole spy ring set up it seems. After a few months of providing info, they are evacuated.

      The russian intelligence services cannot compete with the money and the … trustworthiness of the CIA. The russians might not pay or may just betray them to ISIS. I can’t imagine Russia paying and risking russian lives to work with (and later rescue) muslims living in ISIS areas and actual goatfucker ISIS beheaders who betray their beheader friends.

      ISIS are becoming a joke, there are a ton of spies right under their noses giving coordinates to US agents for delicious bombings. And there are US forces coming in and out of the areas they supposedly control like it’s a busy train station hahhaaha, retards.

      • Bill Wilson

        I’m sure the US didn’t have a very hard time finding ISIS members willing to become spies and informants due to ISIS cruelty and mismanagement of the regions under their control.

    Putin was conspiring with Obama to pivot East now Obama couldn’t pull it off so the Democrat’s put Trump in as the champion mover and shaker, he shakes like Yeltsin and moved in any direction without being questioned, Putin’s puppet, that’s real “partnership” make it a threesom and include Abdullah Ocalan.
    But listen up, if Putin’s​ plans are a success and the war goes East Syria gets split, as if Putin doesn’t know that, Putin only needs the coastal bit as long as his great ally USA controls the rest, Putin is more the puppet than the master.

    • MeThinks

      full of shi*t… Putin plays to win

      • Rodney Loder

        You know only very little of Russian history, if I’m wrong I’ll apologize Tillerson now has nice words for Iran and Yemen is coming to an end.
        The US has to confront China for economic reasons and Putin is the gate way US are not going to get into two wars at he same time, that’s a fact of life, 1, North Korea is worth 100000000000 White RUSSIANS.

        • MeThinks

          still full of shi*t
          your posts suggest your off

          • Rodney Loder

            Yesterday Tillerson was saying Iran was complying good with JCPOA today he’s saying Iran needs to be brought into line so they don’t become another North Korea, what I think is he’s just saying whatever to make my posts look bad.

    “the US evacuated spies from the ISIS-held areas four times this month alone.” hmm how many spies they have….hey don’t forget to evacuate al-Baghdadi!

  • Bill Wilson

    ISIS is probably using the abandoned T-2 airbase as the munitions depot. It shouldn’t be around much longer now that the US got their spies out of the area. I bet the remaining ISIS leaders are now questioning their officers for being possible spies.

    • PZIVJ1943

      The ops probably work out either way. To collect intel on area and take out some ISUS spies or just make the dead bodies disappear. This should make Daesh paranoid!

  • PZIVJ1943

    Also report out of Iraq that US special forces HQ has moved from Balad airbase to Al Assad airbase in Anbar province. This is much closer to the Al Qaim border crossing along the Euphrates. Hopefully the Shia PMU will start moving west to the border soon (Mosul operation is holding them up).

    • Bill Wilson

      There’s 5 Iraqi airbases south of the T2 airfield, with 4 close to the Jordanian border. Jordan has 2 airbases due west of those. I’m pretty sure that coalition forces ran ISIS out from the western end of Iraq next to the Jordanian and Syrian borders so they can use the 4 airports as staging grounds for Iraqi troops for an advance to the east. There’s nothing out there except a few towns and villages along the two E-W highways and two that run north into Syria. Both run up to Palmyra with one passing the T2 airbase. That one intersects the highway just south of Al Qa Im, which is close to Qusayban on the Iraqi/Syrian border along the river.
      There’s also nothing in the southern end of the Syrian Desert except for a few roads and a smattering of tiny villages. The US probably will aid the FSA in taking those while they help Iraqi forces advance to the east to take the highways and that crossroad south of Al Qa Im to contain ISIS to their holdings along the river.

    They are agents of US and co.. ISIS was created by CIA

    Finally , a back up to my post yesterday . From
    “Britain Conducts Heliborne Operations in Eastern Deir Ezzor> Tues. April18 7:28 .

    Both operations mentioned , the objective , after “acquiring” al-Mayadeen , Bu Kamal , and al Qouriyeh , being ” To cut off the road from Iraq to Eastern Syria and BLOCK any possible Iraqi Volunteer Forces from advancing towards Syrian territories ” .

    • PZIVJ1943

      It could just be a recon raid, it would take quite a few troops to take Al Mayadein and hold it against Daish counter attack. This did not work out well in June of 2016.
      Although ISUS is much weaker now.

      • Ronald

        Looks to me like the US is building a “base” , fly in , unload , fly out and ISIS sets up road blocks to secure the “base” . (that’s in the article if you read it )
        Trump being a business man has figured out how to grab the bull by the nose ring .
        Erdogan is blocked in the north by the SAA , and the Kurds .
        Given fresh funding and a prepared air base , he is invited to enter from the south . Turkey gets the oil fields from the Iraqi boarder all the way up to Raqqa .
        It gives Erdogan a reason created to claim to be , “a legitimate representative of the Syrian Sunni’s” . A “Sunnistan” with the “New Sultan” , and a new Turkish province . Which like Cyprus he fills with Turks and out votes Assad .
        US gets its keystone , blocking and breaking the “Shia Cresent” .

        • Bill Wilson

          You have quite an imagination!

          • dutchnational

            Too many pills.

          • Ronald

            I really do hope that it is just imagination , but if you consider the name “Eastern Shield Army”, and the fact that luring Erdogan in from the southeast achieves many goals . One , as ISIS is basically soon to be done, the US has a new proxy army to move around . Erdogan gets to be a Sultan – with oil , but he also is brought back under American control . Most important is the last , breaking the Shia Cresent .

          • Bill Wilson

            Erdogan has enough on his plate to add more ill-advised adventures. He got poked in the eye when the SDF turned over front line villages to the SAA in Northern Aleppo then kicked in the nuts when the Kurds allowed the Russians to build a base near Azaz. The coalition in Iraq keep telling him to withdraw his troops back to Turkey since they’re no longer needed nor welcomed. Northern Iraq has huge reserves of oil which is worth fighting for, compared to the small eastern Syrian fields of very low grade crude that are being depleted. If Erdogan invades from the SE then it’ll be into Iraq to gain control of those reserves.

      Looks like the green and blue lines have been cut off at Palmyra.
      So what is the next plan ? Turkish border is somewhat mountainous!

      • dutchnational

        Turkish Syrian border is mostly flat or just hilly at the Syrian side.

      • Bill Wilson

        The green and blue pipelines don’t exist. Syria has one oil pipeline entering the country at the SE corner and T2 is the second pumping station along that line. It’s tied into the pipeline carrying oil from the Deir Azzor fields at the T3 pumping station where the lighter Iraqi crude is mixed with the very heavy DAZ crude to make it easier to pump further and sell at market (more usable product can be refined from that mix).

        • PZIVJ1943

          I meant to say “proposed” pipelines (Qatar).
          Thanks for the good info.

  • ….or…its a resupply mission for IS….uhmmm

    Something very devious is being planned by the Americans.
