    Syrian army reach Iraqi border, announce 'strategic turning point’ in war on ISIS

    Published time: 10 Jun, 2017 17:32

    The Syrian army, in cooperation with its allies, have taken control of a vast territory in southeastern Syria, reaching the border "with friendly Iraq," Syrian military officials have announced, describing it as a decisive moment in the fight against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

    "This achievement is a strategic turning point in the war on terrorism and a springboard to expand military operations in the Badia [region in southeast Syria] and along the border with the friendly Iraq," a Saturday statement from the General Command said, as quoted by the state Syrian news agency, SANA.

    The latest advance establishes a bridgehead for further anti-terrorist operations along the border, as it "tightens the noose around remaining ISIS groups" in the area. It further cuts IS supply routes from several directions.


    The successful operation underlines the ability and determination of the Syrian army to defeat jihadists, and demonstrates that it is the "only effective force in fighting terrorism," the Syrian command said.

    Pro-Syrian government forces have recently been targeted by the US-led coalition in that region, with Washington claiming that they represented a threat to opposition groups backed by the US.

    In its statement Saturday, the Syrian command reiterated it saw such US-led attacks as an attempt to "hinder the advance of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies in their war on terrorism."

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.

    I love how Al-Jazeera has suddenly stopped insulting the Syrian forces by calling them "regime forces".
    And also how the Syrian forces ignored Washington's directive to stop and pushed on. They've just dealt a serious blow to Washington's plans for 'regime change'.

    Syrian Army Has Reached the Iraqi Border, Cutting off the Americans at al-Tanf -- Russian MoD

    A major move to cut off the US in southern Syria from taking more territory
    Fri, Jun 9, 2017

    -snip-

    In essence, as Americans were busy bombing small Syrian groups entering their declared exclusion zone via the main road, a separate Syrian force staged a lightning-quick advance through roadless desert, well to the east of the "deconfliction" zone enveloping the Americans.



    If the US forces are not cut off from ISIS they no longer have an excuse to continue occupying this part of Syria. (Or will they insist they get to leapfrog over the Syrian army?)

    Russians are saying it will be them and the Syrians -- rather than the Americans -- who will be advancing along the Iraqi border towards al-Bukamal (the major border crossing in the Euphrates valley coveted by the Pentagon):

    Russian officers also accused the US of hindering the Syrian war effort against ISIS, by blocking its military from opening a new front against the group:

    “The coalition air forces and the strongholds of the forces of New Syrian Army have blocked the way of the government forces, tasked with defeating IS groups.”

    “This is a violation of the sovereign right of Syria to protect it borders."



    -snip-


    The Syrians advanced 184 kilometers in a single day!

    Massive build-up of Hezbollah, Syrian Army soldiers in Palmyra
    By
    Leith Fadel -
    10/06/2017

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 P.M.) – A large amount of reinforcements from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah have poured into the Palmyra countryside, recently, to aid in the ongoing operations to lift the siege on the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

    According to Al-Masdar’s Ibrahim Joudeh, thousands of soldiers have arrived in the Palmyra countryside for the Deir Ezzor offensive, making this one of the largest operations to take place around the country.

    While operations have already began to liberate the Arak Gas Fields, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have not launched their main assault, which will consist of their forces attacking the key town of Sukhnah.

    Sukhnah is strategically located along the main highway to the Deir Ezzor Governorate; it is also the Islamic State’s (ISIL) most important stronghold in central Syria because of its numerous gas and oil fields.
