Iran sets up command center at Abu Kamal for attacks on US targets and Israel

The small east Syrian town of Abu Kamal near the Iraqi border is under close US military and Israeli surveillance. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that, according to the best intelligence estimates, Iran has set up its headquarters at Abu Kamal for attacks on US forces in eastern Syria and targets inside Israel, as part of its payback for the tight US sanctions on its oil sales. Incoming data reveals the establishment of special training facilities there for the pro-Iranian forces assigned to these attacks, the presence of their command posts and the weapons arsenal building up for their use. Some of the commanders have taken over former schools, while weapons are stowed in former hospital buildings. The Iranians have also erected a communications tower in the town center for links among the various units and facilities. 
Our sources also report the delivery at Abu Kamal of Iranian surface missiles – medium and short range, as well as anti-air rockets. They have been deployed at different parts of the town and in outlying villages.

The positioning of these weapons indicates that the Iranians expect American units in Syria and Iraq to attack their Abu Kamal forward headquarters together with the IDF – either preemptively or as punishment after their offensive. Hence, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s warning on Tuesday from the F-35 squadron that these Israeli Air Force stealth warplanes can reach any point in the Middle East, not just Iran but Syria as well.
According to the information reaching DEBKAfile, Abu Kamal presently houses, in addition to Syrian and Iranian forces, five Shiite militias in the service of the Islamic Republic: Led by the Lebanese Hizballah, they are the Iraqi Hezballah and Al-Nujaba, the Afghan Al-Fatemiyoun and the Pakistani Zainebiyoun.

    I doubt if put in or trump will like to escalate the situation in Syria and Iraq.
    Iran Will probably continue take over areas as they did in Lebanon, Yemen Iraq an Syria. No reason for them to attack USA now.
    They will probably try to hit other places including Israel.

      Cremsi…Agree, The IRGC Shiia well-known to hide behind Children, Weaponize Hospitals, and Demonize Mosques and Churches! It won’t work, and they will be removed like ISIS! The Best Group of Cowards as seen when losing to Iraq in the 1980s. Clearly, the Iranian Shia are Lost as Sheep and Dealing with an Unknown Response is another Gamble after losing 10 Bases last week? Syrian Kurds will expose them as well. “Ourselves Alone”!

        What did Iran lose after being attacked by the US/Saddam alliance throughout the 1980s?

        Then Uncle Sam whacked Saddam.

        Now Iran and Iraq are BFF.

      Translation Turkish to English: “The middle east is not comfortable as long as the Zionist Israel is in the region.”

      Fact is that the those who are at peace with Israel are doing fine. Israel’s enemies are the ones who suffer. They do this to themselves.

    Well, it is an international site. If I can’t read it, it doesn’t bother me. I should think that if they wish to insult Israelis and Christians, then they should do it so that others can read it, too. Hmmm, maybe it is good that I can’t read such insults.

    To the non-English posters, may you find Jesus in the Holy Bible and accept the free salvation that he offers. If you are Muslim, then know that there is only one way to father God. That is through Jesus the Christ.
    If you are a non-Christian Israelite, then God (Jesus) will deal with you differently than all others at the judgement. Peace.

    I sent an earlier post a couple of months ago suggesting that Israeli forces should take part of that narrow fertile Euphrates strip and hold it. From there they can direct operations in Syria, and if necessary, Iraq. They shouldn’t take the heavily-populated small cities, but the villages and fields-and not all of them. As long as it doesn’t become Dien Bien Phu for them.

    Iran will be using Iran air and ask for permission to land either in Israel , Tel Aviv airport or even on USA navy
    in Persian gulf. So please be advised do not give any permissions to do so. This is Iranian surprise for USA and Israel. Please shoot down any Iranian aircraft’s asking for permission to land. It has explosions beyond you may think.
