Unexpected developments in Syria. CIA or the deep state of USA, seeing that the Syrian army is only 10 km close to capture the Omar’s oil fields (the largest oil fields in Syria), and the SDF – Kurds was 50 km away, came in deal with ISIS to deliver the oil fields to Kurds without fighting, so as US has the upper hand.
The fact is that the syrian oil is not liberated yet. The Kurds now replace ISIS in the area ? We expect the answer of Russia and Syria to be as power as Iraq in Kirkuk, that captured the oil fields of Kirkuk in one day or negotiation with USA
Lets see two articles
Tribal fighters linked to the Islamic State (ISIS) defected from the terrorist group to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) at the Al-‘Omar Oil Fields in Deir Ezzor, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News this afternoon.
According to the source, the SDF has not reached the Al-‘Omar Oil Fields, but announced they captured this imperative site in Deir Ezzor after the tribal fighters joined the Arab Liberation Council.
Furthermore, this latest move leaves the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in a difficult bind, as the US and Russia have an agreement to avoid hostilities between their forces in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
While it is not clear whether or not the Syrian Army will attack this site before the US-backed forces reach it, their high command is furious over this move because of the loss of future profits from these large oil fields.
On Sunday, ISIS and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) begin negotiations to hand over the eastern bank of the Euphrates river to the SDF, according to a report of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The SOHR added that the negotiations are sponsored by local tribal leaders from Deir Ezzor governorate. The area that might be handed over to the SDF is over 110km along the Euphrates river, according to the report.
The SOHR added that the area include all the villages between Khsham town in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, and Hajin town in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside.
Hajin town is located 20km north of the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, al-Bukamal city. If ISIS hands over the town to the SDF, the US-backed force will likely cross the Euphrates and effectively cut off the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) from al-Bukamal.
Earlier on Sunday, reports appeared that the SDF captured the Omar oil fields as a result of the agreement with local ISIS members. The Syrian pro-government blog al-Masdar News even said that the local ISIS fighters defected to the SDF.
The tension between the SAA and the SDF reached a new level after the recent SDF advance in Deir Ezzor governorate and the supposed SDF-ISIS negotiations. According to some pro-government activists an armed conflict between the SDF and the SAA looks closer than ever. On the other hands, the US military support is an important issue that prevents the SAA from hostile actions against the SDF.
