Who in their right, rational mind would believe that ISIS actually seized a Deir ez Zor Oil Field from the US backed Kurds? In territory that the US occupies, having built multiple bases in that territory, having all those bases filled with both PKK/YPG & coalition troops?
What kind of hard core drugs would one have to have sniffed, snorted or popped to believe that absolute nonsense. If SAA so much as comes close to their oil fields, or look sideways at them, they are bombed to smithereens!
The US-led coalition killed more than 100 Assad regime fighters in eastern Syria on Wednesday, officials said, in the largest deliberate strike carried out by Western forces against pro-Syrian government troops.
This is a costume change. That's it!
It is nothing more then that. YPG/PKK changed to black clothing and are flying their ISIS flags- This "move" only serves the Usrael thugs! PKK et al.
Kurds and ISIS have always intermingled. Deal with that reality. Because it is THE REALITY.
The so-called Islamic State (ISIS) launched a big offensive against the US-backed forces in rural Deir Ezzor this week, targeting several areas east of the Euphrates River.Sputnik
ISIS began their offensive by storming the key town of Al-Bahra; this would result in a series of intense clashes that lasted for several hours on Monday. The terrorist group would ultimately take control of Al-Bahra before reinforcements from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) arrived today to help retake the town; it is still contested.
Meanwhile, at the large Al-Saykhan Oil Field, pro-opposition activists allege that the Islamic State has taken control of the site following the withdrawal of the US-backed forces.
