US-Backed Syrian Fighters Plan to Capture Russian Military Personnel

Sources informed of the situation in southern Syria reported on the meeting between the Syrian jihadi group 'Popular Resistance' leaders and high-ranked US officers held at the US military base al Mafraq in Jordan. The participants discussed a kidnapping operation of Russian servicemen in southern Syria.

US military advisers have ordered Syrian radicals of so-called 'moderate' opposition to capture Russian servicemen or military-police personnel operating in Quneytra and Daraa provinces.

The US representatives pledged to provide modern arms, communication facilities and information about Russian military-personnel movements and their routes for the militants. Besides, terrorists intend to capture Russians wearing other jihadist groups' uniform such as ISIS or Hay'at Tahrir al Sham.

This region was not chosen for carrying out provocation randomly. The situation in the southern provinces of Syria has extremely sharpened recently. Lately the Syrian Arab Army units were forced to conduct an operation against the militants' 'sleeping cells' in al Sanamaine in response to disturbances organized by the radicals.

It's worth noting that US intelligence has a significant influence on the situation on the Jordan-Syria border. US-backed militants have special training courses at the US bases in Jordan. US intelligence and its agents are engaged in vigorous activity in southern Syria, provoking an escalation of violence and not allowing Damascus to establish a peaceful life in Daraa and Quneytra provinces.

Moreover, nine years ago anti-government protests began in Daraa province, that rapidly turned into a radical armed uprising under the banner of extremist organizations. It was a stronghold of the so-called 'moderate' opposition until 2018, when government forces supported by Russia took control over it and disarmed the militants for their further integration into civilian life.

Obviously such provocations lead to escalation of violence and final defamation of any opposition forces in Syria. The terrorist operations organized by the US reaffirms Washington's unwillingness in peaceful life restoration in Syria and readiness of the White House to commit any crimes to achieve its goals.
