Why does the United States expand the Al-Tanf military base in Syria?

41
Satellite images have appeared on the Web, where you can see that the United States has expanded the military base At-Tanf, located in the province of Homs (Syria). Within three months, several additional buildings and structures were completed at the base. Also on the territory of the base for quite some time now there are at least 30 military vehicles that were not previously recorded there.

Earlier it was reported that the United States was allegedly ready to transfer Et-Tanf under the control of the CAA in exchange for guarantees from Russia that the Syrian government army would refuse to attack the positions of US-backed forces in eastern Syria.



Against this background, the Syrian army is forming a strike fist to inflict a final defeat on militants in the southern part of the ATS, in the province of Daraa.

Satellite images are published on the Lebanese portal AMN.

Why does the United States expand the Al-Tanf military base in Syria?


Now:


Meanwhile, the militant groups, calling themselves the "Southern Front", turned around and declared their readiness to confront the CAA government army. Tanks, Infantry fighting vehicles, pickups equipped with memory and heavy machine guns. It is reported that to raise the spirit, the militants even carried out a kind of military parade. However, this step was called meaningless, since in the end, under the pressure of the SAA, terrorists in any case have to transfer from pickups and infantry fighting vehicles to "green buses to Idlib."

        The Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Harry Koren, said on the air of Ekho Moskvy radio station that Israel was “pleased with its relations with Russia”, “appreciated the Russian position” and “shared many interests with Russia about the future of Syria”. Koren added that "one of the main interests is that foreign forces leave Syria."

        Speaking about the need to withdraw foreign forces from Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not specify what forces he had in mind. Israel insists on the complete withdrawal of pro-Iranian armed forces from Syria. Moscow did not give such obligations, but in Jerusalem they hope to gradually achieve this goal by continuing to “move in the right direction”.

        Hadashot 2 mentions in passing that the planned offensive of the Syrian-Russian forces in the area of ​​the Israeli border “worries” Israel not only because of the danger of Hezbollah appearing there - judging by recent reports, it has already been eliminated. Most of the sparsely populated border zone is controlled by Syrian rebels, who are still considered the "strategic allies" of Israel.

        Do they have options? They are nobody there and there is no way to call them. The hegemonic hat is pulled over, but today this is no longer enough. Today they won’t be able to intimidate Syria, due to the fact that for 7 years of war the Syrians are philosophical about the type of "Allah tidied up", which can not be said about mattresses. Assad previously had an interest in negotiating with the United States on some issues that would save cities and industry from destruction, but the United States did not want to negotiate and stupidly demanded "Assad must leave" and smashed everything in a row. Now that everything is in ruin, the Syrians should not be shy about smashing mattresses wherever they fall, since they have nothing to agree on. Than mattresses will justify the death of their w / sl. in front of their fellow citizens, if they themselves entered Syria without an invitation? Nothing! No wonder they have now muddied the topic with the creation of a coalition from among the Arab countries that will uphold "democracy" after the departure of the mattresses, which Trump himself recently announced.

      Probably the stripes want to create in Syria for us, Russia and the Russian Aerospace Forces, a maximum of problems, frauds, villains and filth. For this we need a good material and technical base, with a communications center, airfield, training ground, underground warehouses, air defense, artillery. So they work.
      Ours also do not sit back ....
      It is reported that the Russian military is deploying an observation point in the village of Sami next to Suweida.


      SAA continues to draw strength to Daar for the upcoming assault.

      A bearded:
      After the creation of the joint headquarters of the militants of the so-called The “Free Syrian Army” began a massive mobilization of its forces. Parts of the Islamists are pulling manpower and armored vehicles to the lines of contact with the Syrian army in the provinces of Daraa and Kuneitra. In addition to traditional techniques with ZU-23-2 or heavy machine guns, BMP-1 and T-55 tanks were transferred to the front line. Also, militants use the Kamaz-6511 platform to install S-60 anti-aircraft guns.

      It is better to intimidate them to death and make them surrender and leave for Idlib, or for the Euphrates to the striped. And save life and cleanse the territory. And we will gather the bearded in a heap in the desert and kill them from planes and artifacts. In the idlib, the Turks will disarm or kill them. And then they will return to normal. Again, everything is in a heap, it is easier to destroy.

        They rely on the help of Abdala, as well as the fact that the United States officially threatened the government army with the most serious consequences (including the military) if the ceasefire in Daraa ceases. Given the location - Americans can work with Jordan artillery and aircraft.

        Actually - 100% will be fights, at least until the stage, verification of all these assurances in practice. If sponsors help out on Twitter, then yes. Special Chances 0. And a week and a half will fight and surrender.

        If sponsors fit in, then there will be a different alignment.

      So in response to fly on an action movie in Damascus. And it’s good if not Tartuse / Hmime.

      The US position is a crushing blow to those who will threaten them. They constantly voice it and show it in practice. They tried to squeeze the same Tanf - in response, they burned everything that entered the 20 mile zone with artillery and aviation. And the planes that flew there - one shot down, the second case - dodged a rocket and left.

      They very harshly suppress any attempts. Therefore, no chance - if you do not arrange a large-scale war.

          When the government army attacked Tanf, the Americans responded to everything from naval F-18 to artillery. The result of the 2 offensive was halted. Losses are substantial including a downed aircraft.

          When Assad's forces attacked Koniko, they were stopped.

          When it was necessary to keep Assad’s forces at DeZ - in order to gain time for their SDFs that were taking oil fields, they were attacked by the Air Force.

    Why does the United States expand the Al-Tanf military base in Syria?
    Because they understand that it did not work out quickly in Syria and will have to stay for a long time. They cannot get out of there - in order not to become number sixteen in the Middle East. And therefore, there to maintain a mess and tension is their task for the foreseeable future. And for this we need operational bases ...
