UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United States, which seized Syrian oil with the help of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) / Self-Defense Forces (YPG), deployed thousands of troops in the oil-bearing areas. The US Secretary of State acknowledged that the terrorists were provided with huge resources to protect oil.
US President Donald Trump, who during the operation “Source of Peace” in Turkey decided to withdraw the US military from northeast Syria, later admitted: “We are in Syria for oil.”
With the beginning of Turkey’s operations in northern Syria, the United States left 16 bases and military points in the region. But in Deir ez-Zor, Al-Hasak and Raqqah, where there are billions of dollars of oil, they have not budged. Moreover, two thousand American troops withdrawn from northern Syria were sent to rich oil fields.
After the suspension of the Turkish operation, the United States returned to six bases and points.
Two new bases in Deir ez-Zor
Trump, openly announcing that the United States was flattered by Syrian oil, approved a plan to send additional troops to the region to protect oil fields. This made it possible to deploy about 800 US troops in the 150-kilometer zone between Deir ez-Zor and Al-Hasakah.
In addition, the U.S. leadership set about creating two new military bases at the oil-rich Deir ez-Zor. 250-300 troops, armored vehicles, heavy weapons and ammunition were additionally sent to these areas. The US military continues to patrol the oil fields occupied by the PKK / YPG terrorist organization in Syria.
We are proud of it.
The day before, during his visit to Germany, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that the US provided “huge resources” to the Syrian Democratic Forces, which serve as a cover organization for the PKK / YPG in Syria. “We are proud of this and will continue to support them, because we believe that it is in our interests,” he admitted.
The US plans to keep oil under control, providing protection to terrorists, and this plan is not limited to Syria. This region has strategic importance for the transfer of Iraqi oil to the Mediterranean Sea. Through the pipeline that goes through this region, the oil of Kirkuk and Deir ez-Zor will be delivered to Israel, and from there it will be sold all over the world.
US Department of Defense spokesman Jonathan Rath said the U.S. is funding the PKK / YPG terrorist organization through revenues from oil fields in Syria.
Oil will be transferred to Israel
It became known that there is an 85-year plan involving the transportation of Kirkuk and Syrian oil to the Israeli port of Haifa. It was he who determined the latest events in the region. If the pipeline, which will be laid in the region now controlled by the United States, can be launched at full capacity, then 5 million barrels of oil per day can be transferred to the Israeli port of Haifa.
As part of the above plan, an Abu Kemal checkpoint between Iraq and Syria was opened. And the fact that this checkpoint is controlled by the Syrian regime shows that Russia is also involved in this plan.
