Protecting the Oil Fields: Syria Army Deployments on the Northeastern Borders with Turkey

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues its deployment north and east to secure as many Syrian people and as much Syrian land it can in a race with NATO and their terrorists.

The importance of the SAA and Syrian Border Guard units deployment at the northeastern border areas with Turkey in Hasakah province is highlighted in this report by Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news station:



Following is the transcript of the English translation of the above video report

Border Guard units of the Syrian Army were deployed from Qamishli to Qahtaniyah and Jawadiyah to the outskirts of Rumilan oil fields at 9 points and locations along 60 kilometers of the borderline of these towns.

This deployment is of great importance in the field, it is the first entry of the army to these areas in seven years, in addition, it is expanding its deployment at the northern border by more than 150 kilometers from the countryside of Darbasiyah to the outskirts of Rumailan.

It also carries economic significance, most areas have hundreds of oil and gas wells, this means restarting these wells after the agreement between the Syrian government with the Kurdish autonomous administration.

Observers believe that the entry of the army into areas that were a place for US military patrols a few days ago that the Kurds block the road to any US attempt to impede the agreement with Damascus, they also show confidence in the Russian guarantor to remove the Turkish pretexts to carry out an attack on these important and densely populated areas.

In addition, the army’s entry to a depth of 60 kilometers east of Qamishli will open the door to the final phase of deployment at the borders with the distribution of additional units from Jawadiyah to Yarubiyah through Rumailan and Malikiyah, this will pave the way for the deployment of the army on most of the border strip of Hasakah province, which will bring the northern border with Turkey and the eastern border with Iraq back to Syrian sovereignty.


Upon the declaration of the Erdogan – Trump agreement to allow the Turkish invasion of north and northeast Syria, the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad gave his orders to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to move to the north and northeast at all costs, the move that further convinced the Kurdish separatist militias to strike an agreement with the advancing SAA instead of getting crushed by all the parties. It was the acts of the separatist Kurds and their dream to Israelize large parts of the country they occupied with the help fo their NATO and Israel sponsors that allowed the current state of destabilization and chaos. They kept refusing to drop their separatist dreams and turned their back to the Syrian people hoping the US will protect them forever.

In a recent trip the frontlines with NATO terrorists in Idlib, President Assad told the SAA units they’re ready to resume their operation to clean the province of Idlib from al-Qaeda and its affiliates in addition to the deployment to the north and northeast, and that the current attempts by NATO to disperse the SAA forces on multiple fronts should not succeed and to clean Idlib remains a priority.
