Also from the latest edition of the DEBKAfile news letter yet one more worrying development.
Abu Kamal the border crossing between Iraq and Syrian now capture by proxy forces as aligned with the despot Assad.
"Last ISIS stronghold in Syria Abu Kamal falls to Hizballah-Iraqi Shiite force"
"Syrian Abu Kamal was captured from ISIS Thursday, Nov. 8, by a non-Syrian army - a combined Hizballah-Iraqi Shiite militia force fighting under Iranian command . . . The last push into the fallen ISIS bastion was conducted by Hizballah units, which crossed the Syrian border and first headed east into Iraq to fight jihadist targets in the Iraqi province of Anbar."
"Crossing in the opposite direction, from east to west into Syria, were the Iraqi Shiite Popular Mobilization Forces (PMU), to join Hizballah and together mop up the last remnants of ISIS resistance in the Syrian-Iraqi border area"
"Hizballah played the dominant role in this operation and makes up 80 percent of the fighting strength in the east. Since both Hizballah and the PMU were fighting under the same officers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, their victory presented Tehran with full control over the central segment of the Syrian-Iraqi border. Israeli leaders, who declare tirelessly that Iran and its proxies will not be permitted to deepen their military grip on Syria, made no effort to thwart this achievement and have yet to respond."
THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR IN MEASURE CHARACTERIZED BY THE PRESENCE OF PROXY FORCES UNDER THE COMMAND OF THE IRANIAN!
LAND BRIDGE BETWEEN IRAN AND SYRIAN NOW COMPLETE!
