Israel Releases Two More Captives Under Prisoner Swap Deal With Syria

On February 18, Israel released two more Syrian captives as a part of a prisoners swap deal the was recently brokered by Russia.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency, the freed captives, both shepherds from al-Quneitra, were abducted by the Israeli military a while ago.

“The two captives, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein and Tariq Ghassab al-Obeidan, were freed and brought back to their hometowns in the al-Quneitra governorate,” a Syrian official told the state-run news agency.

The Israeli military confirmed the release of the Syrian captives. A spokesman for the military, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, claimed that both men were arrested after crossing the separation line along the Golan Heights.

Under the prisoner swap deal, which was recently brokered by Russia, Israel released two Syrian captives, Nihal Almukt and Dhiab Qahmuz, a day earlier.

In return, Syria released an Israeli girl who entered Syria under unknown circumstances a few weeks ago. According to Israeli media, the girl is currently in Russia and should arrive in Tel Aviv within a few hours.

The deal was not the first of this kind. Two years ago, Israel recovered the remains of Zachary Baumel, a U.S.-born Israeli soldier missing since a 1982 tank battle against the Syrian Arab Army, as a part of a deal brokered by Russia. A number of Syrian prisoners were released from Israeli jails in return.

So the girl was worth 4 Syrians so that means she must have been a spy. She should have been used as an SAA comfort girl and only returned home once her work was done..

Er… no… diplomacy, the middle man, negotiation… WTF are you waffling on about!

Fog of War

Why was she flown to Moscow so fast ? Wasnt she captured in Syria by the Syrians ? What did Syria get out of this besides some innocent sheep herders ? Open your geo-political eyes she was a Khazar spy who was quickly extracted by Putin when her mission went bad. Nothing more nothing less.

Michael Knight

Nope – captured by Syrians, and detained on Syrian territory, negotiated release by Putin, the dirty Yid sent to Russia to be shipped to the bastard state of Israel. Syrian hostages released direct to Syria. Same as when Russia began searching for Y!d bodies on Syrian territory. When found, the Y!d carcasses are shipped to Russia to be sent again to the bastard state of Israel.

daniel

For her release Netanyahu called Putin, Israel FM called Russian FM and Israel DM called Russian FM, do you call this “middle man negotiation”?

Russia has allowed Iran to transport missiles near Israel

Russia’s Aviapro news agency, citing field sources, claims that Iran is transporting missile weapons and systems to Syria using Russia’s Khmeimim airbase’s services. The agency claims that Israel’s refusal to implement the agreement between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu on the de-escalation of Syria’s situation is the reason for the Russians’ decision.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

Syria’s lowered alertness levels for the military and they’re doing deals with the Israelis curtesy of their Russian allies, and all this while the Israelis are actually intensifying their attacks and their stance against the Iranians, so what am I missing, what isn’t adding up right, something doesn’t make sense, or does it.

The Objective

Could you find time to write an article on this?. I can post it on my blog, in your name if you want. With a few edits, your comments often qualify for a good article due to their length and amount of information each has.

I would like to write about what’s going on in Syria, but you have much more intel than I. You and I agree on everything, but disagree on whether or not Turkey’s presence in Syria is justified. However, we could avoid such controversial subjects until things become clearer to me regarding that matter.

I hope you can be a regular contributor to the blog, because I find your intel unusual and likely to draw a lot of fans. I wish I could compensate you now for your contribution, but I cannot at the moment. However, if the blog becomes a success, I’ll do something about compensation.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

I’m flattered that you think I have something positive to contribute to your blog but I’m afraid the lack of available time would prohibit me. But please feel free to use anything I’ve written or will write in the future if you think it can help you in any way.
And if you do want to repost one of my comments or parts of a comment, you can either choose to do so with a credit to me or not, controversial things I say or assert perhaps should be credited to me, otherwise you may get the blame/animosity for the things I say or assert, and I wouldn’t want that happening.
I don’t mind looking stupid if I’ve made a genuine error but I don’t want to do the same thing to you if you use something I’ve gotten wrong, so always confirm with your own research first before you repost without a credit to me.
And if ever you need some help on an article you’re writing, some additional info, another perspective, tips on what to research, relevant info or links, please feel free to send me a message, I’d love to help out in any way I can time permitting, your endeavor sounds intriguing, as well as well intentioned.
We both want what’s best for the Syrian people and all Syria’s immediate neighbors, so in essence we’re both on the same side, we just have different perspectives on how that’s achieved.
One point of compromise that I think should be explored are the pre civil war Adana Protocols/agreement.
If Turkey and Syria could reinvigorate that previous agreement they could possibly find some common ground to work with on other matters.
At the moment Assad’s refusing to reinstate them due to Turkey’s permanent presence in Syria [which is contrary to the original agreement], but a lot’s changed since Assad refused both Turkey and Russia’s attempts to revive them. Turkey’s invaded north east Syria since Assad’s last refusal, so perhaps Assad could be persuaded to apply the Adana protocols to north east Syria exclusively leaving the western occupied territories as a separate issue, a pullout of Turkish forces in the east in return for the reinstatement of the Adana protocols [or a new version] would go a long way towards guaranteeing Turkeys security problems concerning the PKK/YPG/SDF, and also allow Assad to displace SDF forces from the Turkish border and replace them with SAA.
I know Erdogan want’s this territory to be the relocation center for displaced refugees living in Turkey but that’s never going to happen, I keep reminding people that this safe zone is actually the unsafest place on earth now. So I’m pretty sure Erdogan would make a compromise on that commitment if he could get something substantial in return, like the reinstatement of the Adana protocols.
The very best of luck with your blog, I’m sure it will do well and look forward to checking it out.
