TEHRAN (FNA)- The ISIL members withdrew from al-Hamimeh desert in Homs under a ground assault launched by the US forces in support of a rival terrorist group, Jeish Maqawir al-Thowra.
Abu Abdollah, head of Jeish Maqawir al-Thowra terrorist group’s media center, underlined the US ground forces’ partnership in the operation in al-Hamimeh desert in Eastern Homs, and declared the start of the operation from al-Tanf camp to Deir Ezzur province.
He reported that the ISIL forces retreated collectively and without any resistance from al-Hamimeh desert after the ground forces’ advance.
The operation was also supported by the US fighter jets.
Maqawir al-Thowra intends to establish some bases in al-Hamimeh and turn the region into a start point for offensives against the ISIL position in al-Bu Kamal city.
Certain sources also reported that 150 US and British forces have been deployed in al-Hamidiyeh region East of Palmyra to launch operations in the Southern parts of al-Bu Kamal in Eastern Deir Ezzur in cooperation with Maqawir al-Thowra terrorists.
They entered the region through al-Tanf crossing in cooperation with the terrorists that were stationed in Iraq’s al-Akashat district.
Arab media sources reported last week that the US Army forces have entered al-Tanf border-crossing in Southern Syria to continue training more militants called by opposition groups as moderates.
Adaleh al-Hamourabi website said that the American military forces are now training militants of Maqawir al-Thowra in al-Tanf mountain Southeast of Homs.
In the meantime, Charles Lister, a British analyst at the Middle East Strategic Research Association, released several images of terrorists along with the US forces in al-Tanf border-crossing via his tweeter page.
The website quoted sources as saying that the militants have been trained by Washington to fight against ISIL terrorists.
A number of sources affiliated to terrorists wrote on their Facebook pages that military movements have intensified at Syria’s border with Jordan.
Military sources disclosed last Tuesday that the Syrian Army troops continued their anti-ISIL operation in the Southeastern direction of the ancient city of Palmyra to kill the chance for a US-led plan to access Deir Ezzur.
The sources reported that the army soldiers started a fresh round of operation against ISIL in Badiyeh al-Sham and managed to retake the region, thwarting a plan led by Washington to reach Deir Ezzur.
The sources went on to say that tough battles are now underway between the US-backed militants and ISIL and also between the Syrian soldiers and the US-backed militants in Badiyeh.
They added that the army units engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL in areas surrounding the protected region of al-Talileh in the Northeastern direction of Palmyra, trying to take control of the region earlier than any other rival.
In the meantime, the army units utilized the opportunity of ongoing clashes between the US-backed militants and ISIL in Badiyeh and advanced in some regions near al-Seen airbase and Kaziyeh Fallahin towards Damascus-Baghdad highway, taking back several positions.
According to reports, the US intends to occupy several regions in the Central part of Syria’s Badiyeh to launch military operations to access Deir Ezzur. According to a military source, the Syrian Army is trying to win control of the al-Tanf Border-Crossing with Iraq before the US, Britain and Jordanian military men enter Homs province.
The US-Britain-Jordanian Coalition has increased their presence at the Jordanian border.
