Great Satan US Seeking to Establish FSA Front in Southern Hasaka to Spread towards Deir Ezzur
The Arabic-language al-Watan daily reported that the US military officials have intensified talks with the Liwa Maqawir al-Thawra affiliated to the FSA to leave their position in al-Tanf border-crossing in Southern Homs for al-Shadadi in Southern Hasaka to launch an imminent operation towards Deir Ezzur.
Al-Watan further added that the US move came following the Syrian Army advances towards Deir Ezzur from different flanks.
The Arab daily said that the FSA, in return, is trying to persuade the US to start Deir Ezzur battle from Badiyeh (desert), adding that the FSA has also called on the US to back them up in a possible battle against the Syrian Army troops and the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in their push toward Deir Ezzur.
Al-Watan further quoted Commander of Jeish al-Maqawir al-Thawra Mohanad Talla’a as saying that they demanded the US army to support their plan to form a new army known as the National Army from Jeish al-Maqawir fighter to enter Deir Ezzur and seize the city from ISIL.
Talla’a was quoted as saying by al-Watan that the US has not agreed with the formation of the National Army by al-Maqawir which possibly means that the US army is not pursuing nothing but evacuating al-Tang base to hand it over to the Russians.
A leading Arab newspaper reported on Wednesday that Washington and Moscow were in talks to make an agreement to deliver the control of al-Tanf military base in Syria near the border with Iraq to the Russian forces.
