BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – A Syrian military source in Deir Ezzor told Al-Masdar News this morning that all reports claiming the U.S. Air Force bombed the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in Albukamal are false.

The source said reports claiming that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) clashed near Albukamal are also false.

He would add that there are tensions in the area because the Syrian military and Hashd Al-Sha’abi believe the U.S. is preparing an operation to capture the towns of Albukamal and Al-Mayadeen.

The Syrian military believes the U.S. wants to take hold of Albukamal to prevent Iran from using the international highway that links Tehran, Baghdad, and Damascus.

Iran is eager to reopen this highway because the ongoing economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. have prevented them from not only delivering oil to Syria, but also military supplies to their allies like Hezbollah.

It make no sense reopening like that. Assads and Iraq(Iran) says they for some time control the 500 km alll the way to Al Tanf. There are 2 asfalted roads there even they wil need some repair. The biggest on is a direct line from Al Qaim by T2 oilstation following the pipeline. The other one is from the last railway station of the old phosfat area. In Iraq, there also are/were good road from Al Qaim as well as possible from Al Rutbah. The Rutbah is not well, but one good thing about Syria/Iraq is, they have cheep asfalt… Read more »

What? Sanction on Iran mean Hezbollah cannot get military weapon and oil?
But why? You mean Hezbollah dont have hands or could not purchase oil and weapon by themselves.

You mean Hezbollah dont have money is it? Cos I’m sure, if Iran support them with cash mean nothing could exist as problem cos the sanction were not about them.

Somemore oil is something that US need to import from middle east, then how to see, that could exist as problem?

Somemore SANCTION mean Iran cannot buy stuff from specified nation, nothing about using highway nor travel to Damascus.

Then why the sanction could force Iran use that highway?
You mean Iran already sanctioned from using their usual route for delivering stuff to Hezbollah.

You mean US blocking them from getting stuff from their port, that delivered by other nation which not involved in sanctioning Iran.

Wow, US could be that sick?
No wonder Iran need to reopen that highway. If not, then why Iran so desperate about that highway?
