TEHRAN (Defapress)- 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.
