Russian Forces Are Establishing New Positions In Southern Deir Ezzor – Report

Donate

Russian forces are establishing several positions in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside, the pro-opposition Deir Ezzor 24 blog reported on August 16, citing local sources.

The sources claimed that several Russian units are currently working to establish new positions in the town of al-Jalaa.

“Russian forces unloaded military equipment and deployed personnel in the town in preparation to establish bases for its units in the town,” Deir Ezzor 24 quoted the sources as saying.

Deir Ezzor 24 claimed that Russia stepped up its military presence in southern Deir Ezzor recently. However, this is yet to be verified.

Located less than 30km away from the border with Iraq, al-Jalaa is one of the largest towns in the western part of the Middle Euphrates River Valley. A highway leading to al-Qa’im border crossing passes through the town.

The deployment of Russian forces in al-Jalaa could be related to the near opening of the Syrian-Iraqi border, or to the ongoing security operations against the remaining ISIS cells in the region.

      The Russians realise that a ‘tripwire’ is necessary to deter US and their terrorist proxies from taking over the re-opened border crossing, I think.

      It will also deter the US play fighting with ISIS in order for the US to ‘Confront and defeat ISIS wherever ISIS appears’, and ISIS of course have the USAF as taxi drivers :)

        Sooner or later the US has to leave Syria because they are not wanted there like Russia is. When that time comes the Kurds and Arabs in Eastern Syria will reconcile with the Syrian government and together they will kick out the tORCS

        • gustavo

          Sooner ¿ 5 years ? or later ¿ 15 years ?

          • Lupus

            My guess = the sooner < 5 yrs

          • Icarus Tanović

            5-6 years, maybe a bit more.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I hope you are correct. Syria deserves peace from US intervention. Military and Political.

          • Toronto Tonto

            They need peace away from the assad family is what they need .

        • Toronto Tonto

          Its funny how Russia is only welcome in shittholes EH .

  • Rob

    That is good idea. Russia is a great country and does not support terrorism like US and Israel.

    • Toronto Tonto

      Russia IS the terrorist ya fucking dumbass .

  • RichardD

    It may have to do with reconciliation work for elements in that region that want to get out of the Yinon plan SDF project and restore Syrian government administration in their areas.

    Other uses could include specops east of the river and expanding SADF capabilities from western and central Syria to eastern Syria.

  • dutchnational

    Russians are setting themselves up to be attacked by IS. They are welcome to do so. IS will be eager to attack the ” infidels”.

    As SAA does not have the region under control, Russians run the risk of being sucked into a guerilla war they cannot win with the few forces they have on the ground. Hope they gave fun in the desert there and the more IS they can take out, the better.

      Explain how it is that the headchoppers don’t consider U.S. and Israelis “infidels.” Methinks they like Rothschild money more than their holy book.

      • Icarus Tanović

        Very good statement, great argument. Wahhabis are dogs and cowards created to destroy all of Islam and moreover to be used wherever America wants instability and War. Take a look by your self, all around the World.

        • Raptar Driver

          Your people didn’t complain when the “Wahhabis” were helping you kill Orthodox Christians.

    • Paul

      What a shit human you are, actually supporting such injustice and wickedness.

      your Zionist Kurd traitor state is soon to be no more.

  • Jacob Wohl’s Nose

    Russia should build an airbase in Deir Ezzor, or at least a landing strip for helicopters/CAS planes. This way they have increased S-400/radar coverage of all Syria

  • Simon Bernstein

    USAF will scare them away like they did many times in the past haha

    • Simon Bernstein

      russkies dont mess with the US air force, especially near east euphrates and deir ezzor. Especially since their 400 little green men got obliterated at Conoco oil field

      • Simon Bernstein

        American firepower > russkie firepower

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          keep dreaming

          • Toronto Tonto

            Dreamin is all YOU and the RUSSIANS have dufus .

        • RichardD

          If that was true the Russians wouldn’t have backed NATO and the IAF out of Syria west of the river. And now with Iraq closing their airspace to NATO. Your Yinon plan Israelistan Kurdish traitor state east of the river is headed for the dust bin of history. Hopefully to be followed by Israel, Jews and Judaism sooner rather than later so that we can have some peace and prosperity on this planet without the incessant Jew world order conflict fabrication.

      • igybundy

        bombing sleeping men not expecting a fight is not scaring them away, its colds blooded premeditated murder. but amerikans have no honor to speak off to bother them to start with.

      • RichardD

        They’re not going to have to with the neighbors closing their airspace to NATO and the IAF.

    • Paul

      You’re delusional. Russia has successfully pushed the US away from Damascus and has somewhat stabilised the country albeit with a small force. You’re beloved LBGT snowflake army and their headchopping friends days are numbered.

    • RichardD

      It looks like that’s coming to an end, as it should:

      You are one ugly piece of shit

      • Simon Bernstein

        tough talk from an antisemite

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    very good, russia should establish more and more positions in syria, one for every one the enemy creates

  • RichardD

    If this holds up, it’s the beginning of the end of Kurdish Israelistan east of the river. The Kurd traitor’s Mossad Jew bosses are going to have to leave NE Syria to avoid being arrested by the Syrian government. Because without US air cover, there’s no way that the Kurd Jew boot lickers are going to be able to implement the Yinon plan destruction of Syria for their Jew over lords in Israel and the US.
