“Talas Al-Salama” one of the commanders of Aswat al-Sharqiyah in eastern Euphrates, regarding the Americans support of the ISIS terrorist groups in eastern Euphrates, said:
US forces have banned all groups and armed groups under their protection, including The Syrian Democratic Forces and other local armed groups, from attacking and approaching ISIL positions, especially the village of al-Shaafa, in the northern suburb of Abu Kamal in eastern Euphrates. The ISIL forces in eastern Euphrates, located in Hezghin, Baghaan, Al-Shaafa, Island of Al-Bahaoz and al-Sousseh, penetrate the al-Shaafa area and cross the Euphrates River to the western suburbs of Abu Kamal, then enter the area under their control in the west of the valley and the T2 area to the nearby the base Tenef and fighting against the forces of the Syrian army and its allies.
He adds, “I myself am from these regions, there are no people left in these villages and there are very few localities, and the majority of ISIS-dependent forces in these areas are non-Syrian elements, many of them European, who have a secret mission. The Americans are aware of all the issues and do not intend to liberate these areas and villages and end their ISIS presence in eastern Euphrates. They once exasperated the existence of people and fears of casualties, but now that only ISIL forces are present in these areas, they still prevent military operations against them. I truly know that some of the wounded ISIS elements are being treated in US hospitals. “
