The military situation in Syria: Assad's army loses the race for oil

According to sources loyal to the Kurds, 26 of October, US-backed VTS continued the successful military operation on the east bank of the Euphrates River and entered the At-Tanak and Galban oil fields. It was reported that a previously supported US formation established control over the Azraq, Jarnuf, Saban, northern Omar, Malekh and Mkaat oil fields.

      surround the igil and offer an exchange for oil - oust the SDS from the oil fields for leaving the igil in idlib or others

    The Kurds have already won the oil race. At the same time, the Asadites who had crossed the Efrat and knocked out a bridgehead there, were knocked out from the left bank in Mayadin. Kurds have oil, power plants along the river - they also have ... It remains to take the border Abu Kemal, and the transport hub from Iraq will also be under their control.

      Yes, this is a failure. It all started with the death of General Asapov and the colonels together removed. In fact, they beheaded the administration in Deir ez-zor. From this moment everything went wrong. The ferry through the Euphrates has stalled. Cut off communications from Deira in several places at once. Hello again, intelligence! The death of many Chvakashniks ... But American proxies brilliantly implemented their plan. And they forced Russian proxies to act in line with their plan.

    -Where is a real documentary refutation of all this ..? - Why are our media silent ..?
    - This is what happens ... the Syrian army recaptured from ISIS and its henchmen only a huge sandy territory and received a “donut hole” ..? -And the oil fields went to others ... -So what ..?
    -Who will explain all this ..?

      Well, what is there to explain. Isn't GDP divided by Trump? It’s just that someone was trying to force Efrat out of the way and get into the territory of the Kurds. It didn’t work out like that ...

        GDP did not share anything with Trump. The position of Russia is united Syria within its former borders. Most likely autonomous. The fact that the Kurds do not climb into their territory will come to them sideways. All the same, they will be thrown out. So it’s too early for Israel to celebrate something ...

    Yes, that all panic raises ahead of time. The war is not over yet. They will deal with the Islamists and take up these hatchets. Who cares who will control the oil right now. Regardless of production, it needs to be sold somehow, but this will be a completely different story. After all, the Kurds will not have access to the sea and whether they will give them Erdogan through Turkey to trade. So they still have to negotiate with official Damascus. And the Russian General Staff is clearly not stupid, unlike our officials and ministers.
