The Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria is sounding the alarm over a potential false flag attack by the US military in the occupation base of Al-Tanf.
According to warnings relayed by the Russian Ministry of Defense, militants supported by the United States are carrying out a false flag attack against civilians in the strategic region of Al-Tanf, located near the borders of the Iraq and Jordan, to incriminate Syrian government forces.
The deputy head of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, Major General Oleg Yegorov, said via a RIA Novosti report that the center has received information about members of the terrorist group Maghawir Al-Thawra preparing to launch an attack that allegedly accuses Syrian army troops of indiscriminately striking civilian infrastructure and residential areas.
The report adds that the US military intends to increase the presence of terrorists from Maghawir Al-Thawra and allied Takfiris, with the aim of deploying them to areas in northern and eastern Syria under the militant control of the US-backed army. the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
In June, Al Mayadeen reported that attempts were underway to expand the presence of US-allied Takfiri terrorists in southeastern Syria and deploy them to areas where US occupation forces are located in northeastern Syria. Syria, while the United States reportedly sent two different convoys from Iraq carrying trucks, weapons, logistical supplies alongside military vehicles to Syria’s northeastern province of Al-Hasakah.
According to local media, the oil-rich province was invaded by US military convoys from Iraqi territories in a bid to revive US military bases there, adding that the first convoy had 50 vehicles, carrying cement blocks. , prefabricated walls, security cabins and armored Panzer vehicles as it headed towards US bases near the Al-Omar oil field. The second convoy, however, encroached on the Tell Beydar base north of Al-Hasakah, but also included 50 trucks carrying military supplies and armored machinery and vehicles.
Syria’s Oil Ministry revealed in August that US occupation forces were looting the majority of Syrian oil, with daily production from the eastern oil fields standing at 80,300 barrels.
Northeastern Syria has long been a hotspot for the presence of US military forces, but the Pentagon says the deployment is aimed at preventing the oil fields from falling into the hands of Daesh (ISIL or ISIS), although it is the United States that loots the oil and smuggles it into its occupation bases in Iraq. Damascus classifies the deployment as a way to get its hands on Syria’s natural resources, something former US President Donald Trump himself admitted during his presidential tenure.
