According to the US political circles, the country are keenly interested in demonstration of the American success in the Middle East region to the American voters.
For this purpose the US President gave instructions to begin the operation to liberate the city of Mosul from the “Islamic State” in the near future. The success of this operation must show a positive outcome of an eight-year Barack Obama reign.
According to the US and Saudi Arabia plan, the fighters will be asked to leave the city with their families before the assault. The coalition aircraft strike will only be aimed at certain objects in the city but will not damage the terrorists’ positions under the pretext of presence of civilians including women and children. Saudi representatives expressed their willingness to act as the ISIS militants exit security guarantor. A similar scenario was performed by Saudi Special Forces in Iraq during the liberation of Fallujah in June 2016.
The fictitious assault on Mosul provides to the White House an opportunity to accomplish another important task. It is to discredit Russian actions in Syria and explode positions the Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
It is obvious that after more than nine thousand ISIS fighters leave Mosul they will head to Syria to strengthen the ISIS positions in the Eastern areas of the country. Also they may try to capture cities of Deir ez-Zor and Palmyra. According to the White House, in case of loss of these zones Syrian government will completely lose control of the situation and Russia will be forced to quit the Middle East.
