Haley Claims Israel, Syria Agree To Reopen Key Crossing in Disputed Golan Heights

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said that Israel and Syria had agreed to open the Quneitra checkpoint in the Golan Heights to help UN peacekeepers  to “prevent hostilities” in the area.

“We look to both Israel and Syria to provide UN peacekeepers the access they need as well as assurances of their safety. We also call on Syria to take the necessary steps so UNDOF [the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force] can safely and effectively deploy and patrol without interference,” Haley said.

In late September, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that his state is ready to re-open the Quneitra checkpoint adding that “now the ball is in the Syrian court.”

As to the Russian attitude on this issue, Lt. Gen. Sergei Kuralenko, the deputy commander of the Russian forces in Syria, said that the upcoming reopening of the Quneitra checkpoint was “preceded by significant work carried out by the armed forces of the Syrian Arab Republic with the assistance of the Russian Aerospace Forces.”

“The work at the checkpoint was launched by the Russian servicemen, by the Russian military police. First of all, we came to the site, checked it, then proceeded with extensive work to demine the area. At the final stage, the territory’s clearance was checked by the mine clearance specialists of the UN mission,” he stated.

Earlier this year, the Syrian Army backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces restored control of the entire south of Syria after a series of successful operations against ISIS and other militant groups there.

      We could only expect that zio cunt bitch to say such ridiculous things. Indeed. Occupied by ‘israel’ and one day they will be sent packing.

      • Jens Holm

        Thanks for some realisme and hopes.

        It is about bringing in a lot of help. That seemes not to bother lena Jones.

    • You can call me Al

      You beat me to it. Spot on.

      Who the hell wrote this article ?.

      • Jens Holm

        The point is, that so many different sources tell they agree for probatly massive help into Syria and maybee parts of the rest.

        It has no relevance, who wrote it.

    • Jens Holm

      Its theirs. They destroyed it too.

    The Deep State In America is dying. Please bear with is.
    If we can Make America great again, they will in fact be great. and we can all live in peace for a while.
    Root for MAGA. Make America Greate, they will have no reason to fight if they have everything.

    Well if Israel could bring itself to accept the reality that Syria is ruled by the Syrian government, that would be mostly a good thing. Look at how hard it is for the SAA to clear that isolated al-Safa pocket, even with Russian support (yes I sorta know about the tough terrain there). The notion that they’re in any shape to take back the Golan without such support is just a fevered delusion, I’m sorry to say.

    Of course, our kosher partners have a … reputation, so if they hold an olive branch in one hand I’d look very carefully what’s in the other.

    She has no clue of what`s going on the ground, she just spews her usual hatred Neocon mantra every time she opens her mouth.

    Oh well, if Nimrata says it, it must be true……..not.
    Nimrata keeps forgetting which country she represents at the UN. Easy to do. One raving Zionist is much like another.

      I afraid they are not like that. They are very good learners. Else they would not be there at all.

      But You keep it easy for them too being experts in learning nothing and even insist.

  • Jim Prendergast

    Is this Haley’s way of thanking the Syrians for killing-off the Israeli terrorists?

    • Jens Holm

      no. Some say she take a vacation and run for president next time.

      I see she has a big trust from the Trumpets. Thats a good beginning.
