Deir Ezzor | Iranian forces continue boosting positions in the desert
[SYRIAHR] Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that Iranian forces continue boosting their positions in the Syrian desert, as activists have monitored periodical military and logistical reinforcement arriving in the area.

The fortifications are concentrated along the desert from al-Bokamal near Iraq-Syria border to the south of Deir Ezzor city. These fortifications and reinforcement come in the wake of reports about a possible military operation which aims to eliminate Iranian presence, if Russia’s political solutions fail.

On Wednesday, SOHR sources reported that three powers, Israel, International Coalition and Russia, converging on the same road, just like an indirect coalition with a purpose of blocking Tehran-Beirut international highway and eliminating the Iranians in the Syrian desert.

According to very reliable SOHR sources, a delegation from Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) met with commanders of "Maghawir al-Thawra Forces" and "al-Nukhba Forces" operating in al-Tanaf area in the Syrian desert.

The meeting, held a few days ago, was centered on coordinated advances of these forces into the desert, as well as carrying out military operations, backed by the International Coalition, against the Iranian forces and loyal militias in order to block Tehran-Beirut international highway in Syria.

During the meeting, it was agreed that "Maghawir al-Thawra" and "al-Nukhba" forces would advance at the beginning under the pretext of fighting the "Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
".

The issue of launching military operations depends mainly on the results of Russia’s attempts to persuade Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
to pullout its forces and loyal militias from the desert and replace them with Russian-backed forces. The alternative forces are supposed to comprise tribal factions and ex-fighters who have struck reconciliation deals with security services.

If Russia fails to persuade the Iranians to retreat from the desert, a military solution comes to the fore and a ground operation will be carried out. There is a specialist network whose task is to collect information and geographic coordinates of Iranian targets and positions in "al-Shamiyyah" area. This network is affiliated directly to Israel and the International Coalition, while at the same time it has an indirect reporting line to Russia.

Furthermore, U.S. forces conduct reconnaissance tours and pay intensive and daily visits to SDF positions on the banks of Euphrates River.

For their part, the Iranians, the ultimate loser if Tehran-Beirut "artery" is blocked, formed a strong line of defence along the desert, from al-Bokamal near Iraq-Syria border to the south of Deir Ezzor city, as SOHR activists reported seeing large military reinforcement being delivered to Iranian-backed militias, via al-Bokamal crossing. A group of this reinforcement was transported in civilian buses to evade detection.

"Iranian forces boosted several positions, including ’T2′, M’eizileh, Haql al-Ward, al-Mazare’ in al-Mayadeen desert, Ain Ali in Mahakan desert, al-Majabil in al-Quriyyah desert, al-Imam Ali base, ’T3′, other positions in al-Wa’er desert, Hamimiyyah, Faydat Ibn Muwayni’, and other positions in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor," SOHR sources added.
