TEHRAN (FNA)- The US and Russian backed forces in Syria are preparing for a major battle for the strategic oilfields in the Eastern countryside of Deir Ezzur, a military source said.

The Syrian Army troops and their allies have been amassing their forces along the Western bank of the Euphrates River for nearly two weeks now, massdar quoted the source.

 

The source added that the government forces are planning on crossing the bridge that was recently constructed by the Russian military near the key town of Khasham in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

 

If the Syrian military does in fact cross the bridge, they will be within the striking distance of the Al-Umar Oilfields.

 

The region hosts Deir Ezzur’s largest oilfields, making its capture all the more important for the Syrian government.

 

However, the US-backed forces are not likely to give it up without a fight, despite the fact they are greatly outnumbered by the Syrian military.

 

While Russia and the US will provide their respective sides with military support, it will be the latter that might have to militarily intervene.

 

The US Coalition has bombed the Syrian military before and given their latest attack, they may choose to do so again.
