First Day Of Ceasefire In Southern Syria

Donate

The provinces of Daraa and Quneitra are witnessing complete calm following the start of the ceasefire agreed supported by Russia and the United States in southern Syria on Sunday. There has been no official breach of the ceasefire so far.

“I think this is the first indication that the United States and Russia can work together in Syria,” US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Saturday. “As a result, we have had very long discussions with regard to other areas of Syria where we can continue to work together to reduce the escalation.”

From his side, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the agreement includes “securing access of humanitarian aids, establishing contacts between the opposition in the area and a monitoring center being established in the Jordanian capital”. This means that the Russian and US sides have already agreed on the technical side of the ceasefire, and a mechanism to monitor it.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) used the last hours before the ceasefire yesterday and launched a quick attack enabled it to control Al-Mukhtar strategic palace east of the village of Al-Samadaniya al-Sharkia in Quneitra countryside.

Opposition sources confirmed that they withdrew from the position, and claimed that they were able to destroy an SAA tank and killed a soldier before the withdrawal. However, the attack ended before the ceasefire officially began.

    So correct me if i am wrong, but Trump agrees to a ceasefire and the terrorists in South Western Syria stop their attacks? Its almost like the US controls them.

    • Stephen

      Agreed. ISIS was there near Al-Tanf and fucken US and their allies did not attack them but instead of ISIS, US attacked SAA and their allies. So it proved that ISIS and other terrorists in the Middle East are America pets.

      As the SAA also ceased its advances against Daraa, are they also under control of the US? Or under that of Russia too?

  • Rodney Loder

    Of course israel was always about sabotaging the peace that I think Obama wanted in 2010/11, but England and France demanded Arab Spring as a mammoth colour revolution, and they got it, Trump wants out, to concentrate on Obama’s pivot to Asia, Kim Jong Un has really progressed due to Arab Spring, Trump wants Kim to disarm, only one Nation has ever given up nuclear weapons, Ukrainian, and they wouldn’t do that again, israel is trying to pivot to Russia, and is feeding US technical secrets to the Russians, Trump is aware of this.
    Trump has missed the bus, but he wouldn’t have been allowed on anyway, the price we pay for the after life is the same price Allah paid for reality when He was up against the Alien, in our situation the Alien is two of two of them, Salman and Netanyahu.

      To much nonsensical and gibberish in one post from a grown ass man

        Mid 2014 I was told by my informant in Heaven that Allah had empowered Brother Baghdadi to bring Russia and the US to an amicable working relationship so we can get on with it, now I’m also informed that this has come to fruition, so what’s next, you may ask, all I’ve been told is that the focus has moved to the Scriptures, after all without them Allah wouldn’t need me, and even for Allah now replacing me would be impossible, Christians have got to advise their congregations which other Prophet is Coming back other than me, maybe there reading the Bogomill Bible the one the Protestants inherited from the Bogomill, the one that claims the devil created Earth. That’s what’s next if you must know, Christians are going to spill their guts.

    • Concrete Mike

      I agree these evil men are from the same coin.

      • Rodney Loder

        That is a great personal advantage, unfortunately what people fail to recognise is that in the beginning nothing was actually everything, to be something meant fighting everything, and so it is today, not much has changed and what has would quickly change back, most people want it to, but Allah has a few tricks up His sleeve that the Christians have no knowledge of.

  • Stephen

    America, Israel and their all allies are all fuckin evils terrorists. They are anti governments and anti nations in the world. They have screwed up entire Middle East and Yugoslavia.

  • Ronald

    So has anyone heard any information on how many “troops” ( ISIS – FSA ) there are built up , on the Jordanian side of the border .

      Israel has been occupying roughly 70 percent of the Golan Heights since the 1967 Middle East war.
      Fighting between government forces and opposition fighters has intensified in the Quneitra province in Syria’s south, situated in the 30 percent part of the Golan Heights under Syrian control.(June 26/2017/Al Jazeera )

      Unless Rebels/ISIS return their areas of South West Syria to Gov control, …
      Israel gains more Golan and possibly land in Daraa.
      Seems to me the descalation zone/ceasefire here …..benefits Israel.
      With Qunetria /Daraa entangled in new legal whatever which is the Agreements leading to some future accord/mandate,
      Israel will not have the previous Golan grab with its condemnation UNSCRs hanging over it.

      • Ronald

        “Israel will not have the previous Golan grab with the condemnation UNSCRs hanging over it ” . Would you elaborate on that last sentence .
        So would this “negotiated agreement” void the said UN resolutions ?
        Will this in effect grant Israel the Golan Heights and therefore the oil along with it ?

          Syria’s Sovereignty has been claimed in word during this conflict,
          Yet it’s integrity is not present currently.
          http://www.timesofisrael.com/marking-50-years-of-rule-netanyahu-says-golan-will-forever-be-israeli/
          Notice how recent supposed artillery falling in occupied Golan was violation
          Of Israel’s Sovereignty.
          The above article has Netanyahu boasting on same.
          Israel is seeking by intrigues to have the Golan UNSCRs bypassed via some
          Legal mechanism.
          The US is occupying Syria under grey legal wording and terrorism.
          There is no World law enforcing US illegality, …or Israel’s
          I’m concerned Putin/Lavrov are soft on both. ..and Syria will loose in the end.
          Wish that were not so.
          Israel using laws passed in numerous countries enforcing the Holocaust
          Narrative.
          Now why would that be so important 70 years later?
          It suggests that the Holocaust claim is deception and political leverage.
          Not the actual full historical account.
          Israel knowing their claims are infact exaggeration. …fear awareness removing
          Their primacy over social media.
          They** move in illegal circles with full political cover.
          Hence the concern….they will steal more of Syria Golan, ..And steal the oil,
          And have Syria a shattered piece of glass

  • Trustin Judeau

    Ceasefire in South Syria is not big deal really . The big deal will be if you achieve this in Idlib .

    • MeMadMax

      Last I heard, financial support for the idlib “fsa” has been cut off since the Qatar issue, which means they will probably never regroup/rearm.

  • christianblood

    They cannot be trusted. U$, Nato and their jihadist allies cannot be trusted. Russia, Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and allied militia should finish the job militarily!

  • MeMadMax

    Cease fire can only happen after Total Victory…

    Otherwise, this is just buying time for both sides to rearm and regroup… Prolonging the war…

    • PZIVJ

      I disagree. This conflict in SW Syria is going nowhere, it just consumes SAA manpower and equipment. Have not heard of any Israeli airstrikes as of late. Time to deescalate this front and concentrate on E Syria.
      ON TO DEIR EZZOR !

    95% of the worlds Jews live in the US, Israel, France, Canada and the UK. These people are a huge problem and are responsible for more of the war and other problems on this planet then anyone else. Allegations of Russian interference in US elections are a distraction from massive Jew interference in US and other elections. The Jew world order and their collaborators are the enemy of humanity.

    Anyone interested in the Jew world order and the tragedies that these criminals manufacture would find this article interesting:

    The Lebanon border, Homs, Aleppo, Palmyra, the Turkish border, the Jordan border, the Iraq border. Everyday the Syrian government footprint increases and the regime change footprint decreases as the invaders retreat in defeat. And this will continue until there is more firepower and state of the art military capability on Israel’s border then has ever existed before, capable of dealing with Jew crime. And the world will be a better and safer place for it.

      Your take on the military situation in Syria is quite retarded.
