With US out of the Way Syria's Elite Tiger Forces Will Finish off ISIS

•, The Twisted Genius

"BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army's elite Tiger Forces wing has been ordered to redeploy to eastern Syria this week after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his troop withdrawal from the country. According to a government source, the Tiger Forces were given orders to deploy to the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor province after spending several months at the Abu Dhuhour Airport front in southeastern Idlib."

"The Tiger Forces' mission in eastern Syria is still unknown; however, they could be deploying to this front in order to prevent a Turkish military expansion. With Turkey's announcement of a new military operation east of the Euphrates, the Syrian government and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have entered talks to deal with the threat of this invasion." 

"According to a military source in Damascus, the reason for the redeployment is due to the growing Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) that is posed by the upcoming Turkish Army offensive east of the Euphrates. The source said that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are fighting ISIS right now, will be forced to redeploy much of their troops to northern Syria as they attempt to deal with the looming Turkish Army threat. The Tiger Forces are expected to clear a small Islamic State pocket that has remained near the border-city of Albukamal."
