The Kurds almost are a tool in the hands of the United States who want to seize strategically important positions in Eastern Syria. This said the researcher, Center for Arab and Islamic studies, Institute of Oriental studies Boris Dolgov, transfers the edition FAN.
Currently, the armed forces of the Kurds are advancing in the area of Deir ez-Zor, the noted orientalist. On the one hand, it could be seen as a continuation of the fight against terrorists «Islamic state»* (ISIS, ISIL), but on the other it is an operation aimed at keeping the control over the territories of the province, in particular, Abu Kemal, he added.

According to Dolgov, in the heart of the village is the border crossing that allows you to control the movement from Syria to Iraq. So this area is of strategic importance, he said.
This whole campaign is under the command of the coalition, which actually implements the political line of Washington, said of Debt. The United States needs the greatest possible control over Syrian territory, so they need areas with oil fields, the main points of communications, said the expert.

Political ambitions, the United States significantly complicate relations between Kurdish leaders and the government of President Bashar al-Assad, and between different ethnic groups, reported Debts. In his view, promotion of units «of the Democratic forces in Syria» to the South of the region may cause the escalation of the Arab-Kurdish conflict. In other words, the US threaten the life of the local population, said the orientalist.
Living in these areas, the Arab population is not welcomed these armed Kurdish forces as liberators, said Dolgov. The operation of the Pro-American coalition would seriously complicate the situation in the region, he said. These actions and inflame ethnic conflict, and the confrontation between Damascus and the Kurdish leadership, the expert concluded.
