TEHRAN (FNA)- Russia’s airbase in Lattakia province, known as Humeimim, complained that Washington supports the ISIL terrorists through the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, as the SDF continues pressures against civilians in Deir Ezzur.

Humeimim announced on Monday that it has gained field reports disclosing that Washington is indirectly supporting and equipping the ISIL terrorists.

It added that Washington supports the ISIL through its illegally created allies, the SDF forces, who pursue disintegration of Syria.

Meantime, local sources in Deir Ezzur reported that the SDF forces have detained tens of civilians in the province, including women, children and the elderly, en route from Damascus to the region and prevented their move to the province.

A well-informed source reported on Monday that the US forces were building a new military base in a desert-like region in Eastern Deir Ezzur two weeks after the Washington-backed SDF claimed to have started their anti-ISIL operation in Eastern Syria.

The source said that the US military is building a new base equipped with advanced military tools and systems in Badiyeh (desert) al-Sha’afa in Deir Ezzur province, adding that the construction of the base has been justified as a move in support of the SDF against ISIL in Eastern Deir Ezzur, while SDF has been engaged in several confrontations against the Syrian army.

The sources further said that the US forces and the Washington-backed militias claim to be preparing for a possible operation against ISIL in the region, while they are spreading to the territories held by the Syrian army.
