Iranian troops have made no movements towards US forces in Syria
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Iranian forces in Syria have not made any threatening movements towards the U.S.-led Coalition, a source from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told A-Masdar last night.

According to the source, the Iranian troops have remained in the same area they were previously deployed to in eastern (Deir Ezzor) and northern Syria (southern Aleppo).

When asked about the situation at the border, the Syrian Army source said there has been no increased Iranian or Iraqi presence, nor has there been any military movements in this region.

He would add that the U.S. claims of an ‘imminent’ attack by the Iranian forces are highly exaggerated as many of these groups affiliated with Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units) in Iraq have made similar threats over the last two years.

These threats by the Hashd Al-Sha’abi groups are often nothing more than some demand that the U.S. forces leave Iraq or else they would force them to withdraw.

Furthermore, it was Hashd Al-Sha’abi who said the U.S. and their proxy rebel forces were planning on launching an offensive in eastern Syria to capture the border city of Albukamal.

The claim alleged that the U.S. forces were seeking to block Iran’s access to the international highway, as they were planning on using it to evade sanctions.
