US Likely to Terminate Deployment in Al-Tanf Base in Eastern Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US military is about to surrender al-Tanf military base to the Damascus army as it has already come under a siege by the Syrian government troops and is about to halt operations, a Russian media outlet reported.

The Russian-language Svobodnaya Pressa newspaper wrote on Monday that al-Tanf base in Eastern Syria in which the US and its allies trained militants for fight against the Damascus government is likely to shut down operation soon.

It added that the Syrian army has surrounded the regions near the base after its recent advances in Southern Homs.

Meantime, Endir Omriq, a Turkish analyst, said that the US will likely end deployment of its forces at the base soon given the presence of the Syrian army forces in the nearby regions.

"The Americans have understood that the base has lost its value and its continued operation will not benefit them anymore," he added.

In a relevant report earlier this month, media sources reported that the US occupying forces are attempting to open different ways to transfer terrorists between al-Tanf, Deir Ezzur and Homs by contacting the tribes in Eastern Syria for cooperation.

The Arabic website of Sputnik news agency quoted tribal sources in Eastern Syria as saying that the US forces transfer the ISIL terrorists from the desert region bordering Iraq to al-Tanf through al-Sukhneh in Homs.

Meantime, one of the prominent tribal leaders in Eastern Syria revealed that Mohannad al-Tala, a US proxy and commander of the so-called New Syrian Forces group in the US base in al-Tanf, has contacted the Syrian tribes, calling on them to open a passage for the terrorists to leave al-Tanf for Deir Ezzur to reach al-Omar oil field.

He added that the US forces fear uprisings by the people in Eastern Syria, noting that one of their goals to approach the tribes is to keep deployment in the region as Washington attempts to win the cooperation of the tribes in Manbij, Hasaka and Deir Ezzur have all failed.

Meantime, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has freed its militant inmates and sent them to the battlefield to attack al-Tanf-Sukhneh road in Homs and open a passageway and the Jordan road to al-Tanf.

The US forces had in the past 10 days been busy with transferring the ISIL terrorists with at least 10 armored trucks and heavy artillery to attack Albu Kamal from Abu Hameseh in Hasaka.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian Parliament Vice Speaker Najdat Ismail Anzour underlined that the Damascus government is determined to liberate Syria and Western countries and Israel's support for militants cannot help the terrorists to survive.

"The decision to make free Syria has been taken and Washington cannot do anything in this regard," Anzour said while referring to all-out support by Israel and the US for the terrorists.

He pointed to the Syrian army's military operation in the Southern parts of Syria, and said that the first phase of military operations was successfully conducted and the second phase of operation to regain control of Dara'a and Nasib passage and its surrounding areas will not last more than few days.

Anzour also referred to the political, military and media supports of Israel and the US for the terrorists and the efforts made by the US to impose obstacles to the Syrian army's decision to purge Syria of terrorists, and said, "The US is aware that the Syrian government is determined to liberate Syria, but it cannot do any decisive move in this regard."

The Syrian vice speaker categorically dismissed any agreement reached between Russia and the US on Southern Syria, and said that these days are the worst days in Russia-US relations and the two sides are in a dangerous and complicated situation.

Anzour also pointed to the recent Israeli aggression on the surrounding areas of International Damascus Airport which took place concurrent with the Syrian army's military operation, and said, "Israel has not ceased support for terrorists even for one day."

In a relevant development on Wednesday, almost 1,000 militants who had laid down arms received government amnesty in Dara'a.

Field sources reported on Thursday that 550 ex-militants in the towns of Southern Karim, Ayeb, Jadal and al-Rawisat as well as the village of al-Shara'eh in Northeastern Dara'a surrendered themselves and their weapons to the army on Wednesday.

They added that 450 more militants asked for government's amnesty in Northeastern Dara'a in the past 24 hours, increasing the number of ex-terrorists to 1,000.

Meantime, the army is still conducting military operations in Southeastern Dara'a from several fronts.

The Syrian army started the second phase of its large-scale anti-terrorism operation in Southeastern Dara'a after imposing control over the Northeastern part of the province on Wednesday.

The army men kicked off the second phase of their operation in Southeastern Dara'a by opening heavy fire at terrorists' positions in al-Sawameh region, Qaraz prison and East of Refugee Camp.

The army men intend to advance towards silos to cut off the roads from Eastern Dara'a to Dara'a al-Balad district and from Tariq al-Saad to Dara'a al-Balad that will end at the border with Jordan.

In the meantime, the army's artillery and missile units and aircraft pounded terrorists' movements and positions in Dara'a al-Balad and the small town of al-Qariyeh Sharqi in Dara'a countryside.

The army had already imposed control over al-Lajah region and completed mop-up operation in Busra al-Harir and Maliheh al-Atash settlements in Northeastern Dara'a and Northwestern Sweida, respectively.

Local sources said that the army has purged Northeastern Dara'a completely of terrorists.
