The military situation in Syria: the war of Assad and the Kurds for the route Syria - Iraq

On October 28, a coalition led by the United States officially announced that it and the US-backed SDS are currently trying to consolidate their successes in the Omar oil fields and launch an offensive against the ISIS-controlled frontier city of Abu Kamal located on the border with Iraq. The real goal of this offensive is to try to prevent Syria and Iraq from regaining control of the Deir ez-Zor-Baghdad highway.

    Running Kurds to Abu Kamal is an absolute adventure.
    1. Kurds move south, but not Arabs but Kurds live in this territory. Kurds in this case act as occupiers.
    2. Abu Kamal is located on the Syrian side of the Euphrates and therefore, to capture it, the Kurds will have to cross this river. They are unlikely to be able to keep on that side.
    3.Even if the Kurds capture Abu Kamal, then sooner or later from the north and west the Syrian troops will come to them, and from the south, perhaps, the Iraqi Kurds will not resist.
    4. The Kurds have no reason to capture Abu Kamal. In this case, they act as US pawns. Which the United States themselves can safely throw.
