Rev Guards repair Syria’s Deir ez-Zour-Palmyra road – first link in Iran’s new transnational land corridor

Repairs are underway on the war-ravaged 200km long M20 road linking Deir Ez-Zour in eastern Syrian to Palmyra, DEBKAfile’s exclusive military sources reveal. This is the first road project undertaken by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) to consummate the transnational land corridor Iran has opened up from Tehran to the Mediterranean via Iraq and Syria. This important section of the corridor starts at a point near Syrian Abu Kamal and connects to Iraq’s Highway No. 1 and Baghdad to the east, and to the main Palmyra-Damascus highway to the west. When completed, the M20 will enable Iran to run military convoys from Iraq to Syria and on to Lebanon. (See DEBKAfile map)
Our sources report that the IRGC has already sent at least three test convoys through the road in the last few days, each of 15-20 military trucks with tarpaulin sheets concealing their freight. Their purpose was to find out if they were under US and Israeli surveillance and whether any attempt would be made to interfere with the traffic using the new route. But so far, neither the US nor the Israeli air forces have reacted to stop it.

The road was badly damaged in the fighting raging in the past six months to dislodge the Islamic State’s grip. But after the jihadists withdrew to western Iraq and no more than a few hundred were left in Syria, the IRGC got down to the repair work. Our sources report that the Guards’ construction branch Khatam al-Anbnia is employing Syrian firms for the project. It will have only two lanes and broad wayside bays for heavy convoys to make way for traffic coming from the opposite direction.
When the work is finished, Iran’s transnational land corridor will have gained access not just to the Mediterranean but to a vital foothold for keeping  Lebanon under constant IRGC oversight and control.

    Well, bomb it when completed – best during the photo op for the naming of the bridge!

      The one thing the military of european squatters does is destroy things from 35,000 feet–thanks to those VOLUMINOUS welfare checks received from Great Uncle Sam.

      Roger Waters puts it best: “zap and maim with the bravery of being out of range”.

        You’re quoting a long time drug user to diss the greatest military power in the world. What would you prefer – kitchen knives at high noon? Looser….

          Remind me again of how Roger the dodger Waters served his country… he is an expert stuffing his pockets with money from his now dwindling music career. Probably he lives in the nicer, more secure parts of Britain and the world and does not yet have to worry about rape gangs, terrorism or sharia law ruining the lives of his fellow citizens…but he might come to experience such horrors in his lifetime.

        Foreign policy by Pink Floyd, eh? Set the controls for the heart of the sun, Iran. Bushes, Clintons and Obamas no longer in command.

      Did you not know, Israel no longer flies over Syria. Not allowed I guess. They have been using missiles fired from over Lebanon lately.

    • Dec 27, 2017 @ 22:32 at 22:32

      just how a terrorist would do it.

        No, terrorists use chemical weapons on their own people…with the help of both Iran and Russia.

      Ha ha ha! Who’s going to kill them, skeeter? The same land grabbers that got chased out of Lebanon twice by a non-state militia?

      It’s not 1967 anymore, and the days of bombing US ships and sneak-attacking countries are long gone!

      Mossad groupies spit many words on behalf of a military that only attacks Palestine’s children. Their impotence explains why NuttyYahoo sends the ladies of the squatter army to the Stolen Golan as comfort women for alCIAda cannibals.

        Bushes, Clintons and, Obamas crying for Israeli restraint is only reason Hezbollah survived. That time is passed. Just as they do today, Israel’s enemies boasted loudly in June ’67, “Tomorrow I will kill you.” Israel woke early, and killed them first. Not a “sneak attack”.

        That camel dung you’re eating just causes brain damage. Marrying your sister and reading the koran 8 times a day doesn’t help either.

        The problem with Palestinian children is you treat them like slaves and bugger them whenever you feel like it. You teach them only Jew-hatred in school so they’re only fit to be human knives and bombs when they grow up. You’re a child-molesting, child-hating culture and that’s why you can’t produce anything that anyone else wants generation after generation.

          The moderation policy claims that comments containing libel or offensive language are barred on this site. It looks like they are lying.

        You are right (ISISrael Defeated Yet Again) – the next time they are in Lebanon the Israelis should stay. They should not listen to the UN which wants Israel erased and replaced.

  • Dec 27, 2017 @ 16:22 at 16:22

    I just got double stuffed by Mohammad bin Salman and the corpse of Abu Mussab al Zarqawi.

    I never thought backing into a corpse could be so enjoyable!

  • Dec 27, 2017 @ 16:39 at 16:39

    Surprise, surprise!!! And soon: Russian nukes in Syria! Waiting for Israel to bomb the fucking road…….. Oh, and don’t mention the subs……..

  • Dec 27, 2017 @ 16:42 at 16:42

    The repair of the infrastructure will benefit the entire population of Syria, and the Middle East. Finally the TIR Trucks can roll again and trade between Europe and the Middle East can resume.

    The population along the road will once again make a living.

    This is good news.

    • Dec 27, 2017 @ 16:59 at 16:59

      Next connecting Israel via peace initiative and build a road connecting Israel
      Make peace and it will turn to be the best thing for everyone .

      Keep pretending that ISISrael hasn’t lost in Syria!

    Is the road only one way or two?

  • Dec 27, 2017 @ 20:18 at 20:18

    Russian nukes in Syria? Then American nukes next to Israeli nukes, Syria goes boom and the prevailing winds blow from west to east, then goodbye to Iraq and Iran. This is modern warfare moron, not some hopped up idiot with a bomb vest, you all die!

      The crook NuttyYahoo sent me to the Golan with instructions to sexually service our beloved mujahideen fighters. Despite humping dozens of Zionist officers during my 3 weeks of mandatory service, I never tasted a semite before.

      I don’t like their cannibalism fetish. But my, my, my: they hump like camels!

    To my GREAT Jewish and Israeli friends I extend my apologies to you for offending in the past. I have always resented how I turned out being the child of a worthless and toothless Whore and my father Tappy the Donkey. The shame of having long floppy ears and HeeHawing all day long has prevented me from ever getting laid and that created all my bitterness which I have thrown on the GREAT people of Israel. I have to go now and scratch all of these fleas of my back and front
    Zei Gzundt to my new JEWISH FRIENDS

      Mad love to my dogg Fat Avgidor:

      Tonight I went around the world on 3 different IDF harlots sent to service alCIAda in the Golan! 69 more to go!

      Who said losing wars sucked?

    Your friend Jim Camel won’t be pleased with you for stealing his line.

    Iran piggybacking on Russia and doing all the stupid things trying to establish some power status in the region.
    If anyone is asking for war, it is Iran.
    They will get what want; in good time.
    I am just not sure about the idea of wiping Israel off map.
    Totally unwise.

    • Dec 28, 2017 @ 8:34 at 8:34

      Iran hasn’t invaded a nation for hundreds of years. Like Russia, Iran helps Syria kill alCIAda and kept Syria’s legally recognized government in power.

      Like Uncle Sam, the european settler colony serves as ISISrael’s air force in the hopes of creating a failed state. But they FAILED, since they specialize in LOSING WARS!

      The country that wants war is the country that always wants war. Crooked NuttyYahoo is begging for a war to help him avoid jailtime.

      • Dec 28, 2017 @ 10:20 at 10:20

        Israel has always extended a hand of peace to its enemies.
        All the wars that Israel fought were defensive.
        Today we are about to see history repeating itself.
        Yes. And Israel will be forced to defend herself yet again.

      • Dec 28, 2017 @ 13:23 at 13:23

    Resign third worldists world domination is free and democratic countries, simply for the reason that where people can live without religious conditioning, (especially in Islamic countries) and / or dictatorial manages to be at the best of human creativity and to improve the own life . Those who understand it can only be part of our culture. Does your culture admit that we can define cultivation? It only leads to mental and material poverty and death after having lived a life of shit. Of course you can do damage but the majority of you will end up by God (and I do not give anything that exists or not) without being able to harm us. You are a loser tells the story.
