Iran Will Withdraw Its Forces From Syria If Damascus Requests

On January 30, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Jaberi Ansari said that Iranian forces will withdraw from Syria after finishing their mission there if Damascus government requests this, according to the Russian news agency TASS.

“When all the tasks are achieved, Iranian forces will leave the country with the consent of the Syrian authorities,” Ansari told reporters at the Russian city of Sochi, according to TASS.

Ansari also stressed that the Iranian forces were deployed to Syria in the first place only to “resolve issues that the Syrian people have been facing.”

Both the Iranian Army and the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) deployed in Syria in early 2012 to counter the terrorism and to secure the Iranian interests in Syria. Iranian forces achieved two of its main goals in Syria by securing the holy Shiite shrines around the city of Damascus in early 2012 and then securing a land route from Iran to Lebanon through Syria and Iraq in late 2017.

One of the last missions of Iranian forces in Syria is breaking the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) siege on the towns of al-Fu’ah and Kafriya in the eastern Idlib countryside, according to the sources.

Top Israeli officials have accused Iran on several occasions of building military bases and even missile factories in Syria in order to maintain a military presence in the country after the end of the war. Moreover, Israel even claimed that Iran is planning to use Syria as a platform to strike its territories.

    Of course, this is the right way to proceed, and not because Israel wants to.

    Respect.

    When will the Zionist colonists decolonize the Golan, and even the whole of Palestine?

    • FlorianGeyer

      That could be part of any Iranian deal with Trump Bru.

      If the Israeli squatters on Palestinian land leave and Gaza is freed. from being an Israeli Penal Colony for good, the Golan heights returned to Syria and the nuclear weapons that Israel says they do not have are decommissioned , then Iran might agree to withdraw from Syria. :)

      • Rakean Jaya

        Yes it is agree 100%, it should be like that in the end.

      • Daniel Castro

        Well, I think this is very unlikely to happen on the next 10 years at least…

        • FlorianGeyer

          I live in hope that seismic events in the Middle East will soon hobble Israel.

  • Rob

    What Washington is doing in Syria that is not their job. Washington must leave Syria if they have a little shame.

    • FlorianGeyer

      ‘Washington’ has no scruples or shame .

    • Rafik Chauhan

      US government is run by Zionist thugs . so they don’t have any kind of shame. they are the biggest shameless people in the world. Humanity is like ants for them just to crush them

  • Rob

    US is determined to keep interfering in Syria until it breaks it and split it to several smaller countries. Is that a victory to US? no, it is a direct victory to Israel on the expenses of US budget and military, and YES, everybody else is stuck in this conflict and can’t find a way out!

    • al quaida

      Actually that would be a victory to Washington. Because Syria is an ally of Iran, and Washington wants to weaken their alliance. This conflict is different to Afghanistan, because Washington’s regime change attempt has failed, thanks mostly to Russia.

  • Rob

    This Syrian conflict made Russia so much stronger in the region, a lot more influential than USSR ever was in the Middle East. Russia comes off as a trustworthy partner unlike US who quickly loses respect.

    • Joe

      In fact if , I say if, Turkey is a reliable partner with Russia and Iran plus not grabbing Syrian land, Russia becomes Dominant power in ME.

      The word is ‘if’

  • Rob

    The US is becoming more and more marginalized in the world over. Assad is still in power and the humiliation of the US by Turkey who have totally ignored US and attacked their allies while US is standing and watching like a duck. So soon kurds will see how useless this deal with Wasington really is.

  • Rob

    Washington DC doesn’t represent United states they represent the Zionist terror network Israel.

  • Ivanus59

    Well yes, not like any of us thought Iran would or could keep it’s forces there against Syria’s will. :P Quite obvious. But obvious statements are sometimes what the press needs to hear I guess.

    • Mikronos

      You don’t belief the obvious statements that the US has been making about Iranian fighters in Syria? One of them is that they’re “invading” Syria and ‘the good Syrians’ don’t want them there.

  • Feudalism Victory

    Only leave after they finish their missions? What if syria asks them to leave right now?

    • FlorianGeyer

      Because Syria has endured years of punishing terrorist conflict that has been orchestrated, armed and funded by the richest countries of the world.

      Syria needs the support of Iran and in the future Syria will be able to support Iran if the occasion arises.

      That is what real allies do.

      • Joe

        Without Iran’s help Syria would have long gone.

        Help from Hez, Iran and Russia are critical .

        • FlorianGeyer

          Indeed they are. Hezbollah has really pulled its weight in Syria and without any preconditions. A true friend indeed.

          • Daniel Castro

            I guess killing Mossad scum was reward enough for them.

    • Joe

      Try asking Syria to ask of you can or if Syria wants Iran to leave.

      Silly question

    • Ronald

      General Soleimani is in Syria at the request of the Syrian government . They stand a good chance of fending off the jihadists , the “moderate rebels” , with the help of the Iranian forces , Assad is not a fool and not about to ask them or Russia to leave .

  • John William

    That MFstill ain’t dead?I wonder if Trump knows that piece of shit has American blood on his hands

    • John William

      Ya know the white beard coward in the pic

      • Ronald

        A coward , no , the Iranian general who beat ISIS to the ground in Iraq despite the US doing everything they could to prevent that . He’s the best since Romel .
        There will be a lot more American blood on his hands if the Pentagon doesn’t move American troops out of Syria . Those boys belong back home repairing the back 40 acres , before the whole ranch is torn apart .

        • FlorianGeyer

          That time is fast approaching I suspect Ronald :)

        • Daniel Castro

          Actually they do really belong on a bodybag, but I guess if they just leave Syria would be good enough…

      • Mountains

        The trolls in here would even sell their moms to that fat and beared iranian gypsy general just because he fought someone else in somewhere..

    • Augsta “Augsta”

      Fuck you Dick breathe…

I guess the respect thing is the most important thing n it hurts to say America doesn’t respect anyone that doesn’t have something we want

          • FlorianGeyer

            Sadly the US Empire and in fairness all empires need to plunder wealth in order to maintain their armies that control their vassals.

            However in time as the source of plunder is diminished by rapacious theft the Empire grows weaker and deeper in debt.

            This has been he fate of all empires that thought they were Exceptional. Some collapsed quickly and some took a few hundred years , but all collapsed.
            It is now the turn of the USA to fade away.

  • Toxicus Mechanicus

    an “islamic sh!thole,dictatorship” behaves more humane and reasonable than the “democratic,free and just” USA.

    • Astar Roth

      Absolutely.

  • Mikronos

    Would the Turks match that offer? Nope.

    Regime change or busts!

    • Astar Roth

      Really? Wow! But that actually means WWIII.

  • Bob

    Sounds like Pre-Sochi Iranian diplomatic talking points.

  • Eskandar Black

    All Turks fighting on Syrian soil should be harvested for organs, and the money used to rebuild Syria.

  • Bill Wilson

    Methinks the Iranians took a hint from Putin.
