Rastan Pocket Militants Reach Recosiliation Deal With Government Forces

Donate

A recosiliation deal between the Syrian government and militants operating in the Rastan pocket has been reached, according to pro-government sources.

According to the Syrian state-run media, militants and their families will be able to evaucate from the Rastan pocket in northern Homs towards the militant-held parts of Idlib or Aleppo provinces.

The militants have to hand over their heavy and medium weapons to government forces within 2 days from the start of the agreement’s implementation.

“The agreement also provides for settling the status of militants who are willing to settle their cases, , the entry of the Syrian Arab army into the region, the return of all state institutions and departments to the area in addition to opening the international highway that connects Homs and Hama during three days as of the signature of the agreement.

According to the agreement, terrorist groups pledge to hand over maps of tunnels, landmines and ammunition depots,” the SANA reports.

The strategic Homs-Hama highway will also be reopened.

The negotiations between the government and militants in the Rastan pocket were relaunched earlier this week after the Syrian military had deployed its offensive units preparing for a launch of a military operation in the area.

  • I wonder about the deal where the “former” terrorists are not conscripted into SAA for 6 months. What is it that these Orcs plan to do in the interim? Learn a foreign language? Play chess and shuffleboard? :D

    • Michał Hunicz

      They will volunteer and train to fight for the SAA.

      • χρηστος

        i remember some occasions that this backfired…..they turned against them and butchered saa soldiers that were in the area…..

        • Michał Hunicz

          When?

        • MH370

          i would love the know the link

          • χρηστος

            trying to find that…….damascus district …..some months ago….

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          never hear this before.

          • χρηστος

            has happened in a Damascus district im sure about that…..letters from SAA soldiers were all around fb, social media in general that emphasized the fact that reconciliation deals were made very stupidly fast, dozens of terrorists signed the deal…then turned against saa …result?a bloodbath for the saa. whole units surrounded and slaughtered like sheep……took the rescue forces a while to break the sieze….i’ll try to find a link here..

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            never had face book, but I ask my people to search this.

    • Oscar Silva Martinez

      Jenga is way more fun LOL!!!

  • David BlackBeard

    so Daraa is going to be next stop for Tiger Forces and SAA in this fucking zoo full of jihadi goatdicksuckers ?

    • Michał Hunicz

      Or Deir Ezzor.

      • David BlackBeard

        maybe , but cleaning up Daraa should give them posibility to gain control over border with Jordan … so they will cut off Jordanie support to ”rebels”

      • King Tudor777

        Yes, much more necessary than Dara’a at this moment.

      • Bob

        SAA actions in Darra and Dier Ezzore are both going to cause serious friction with respectively Israel and the US, and who will act to protect their occupying proxies, and the direct US occupation personnel in east. In those theatres it may get worse before it gets better for Syrian state and forces. But those conflicts are inevitable if Syria is to reestablish full state sovereignty – and that is going to require Russian involvement at some level.

    • @Inc2Get

      I really hope they launch an operation in the deir ezzor desert because Isis launches many hit and run attacks that proves very costly, more than 180 SAA (NDF) soldiers have died from these attacks in less than a month and a half. After deir ezzor, they should cleanup

      Daraa and then there will only be Idlib. Keep in mind that Al-Tanf doesn’t count because the US controls that area. That should only be dealt with when Syria is freed from terrorists so they can lay a heavy siege and bomb their way closer. Manpower is everything now.

      Many pro government sources speculate that there won’t be a military operation in Idlib when Daraa and deir ezzor is cleaned up, instead, Assad will tell turkey to kick out HTS and negotiate with Turkish backed militants instead.

      • David BlackBeard

        yeah , good luck with negotiating with turks …. ther will be a lot of military operation … and also u can’t negotiate with SDF ( backed up by USA ) , they just not going to leave Syria that easy and SDF will ask a lot from Syrian goverment in case they agree to negotiate… to be able to make a good negotiation , syrian goverment has to deliver a devastating blow to SDF and militants from idlib to force them accept Syrian goverment terms or at least to start negotiate on terms of syrian goverment .

    • Toni Liu

      Clean the middle first then going to other, so that big black stain at deir ez zor need to be cleared

    • Redadmiral

      Daraa is where Russian GHQ stated on Monday last, that the next Chemical Attack will take place. They have outlined where the Rats were trained in the use of CWs, how they got these CWs and how they are going to provoke the SAA into a response so as they will be able to use these CWs. They have also outlined how the US, its Proxies and its poxy allies intend launching a full scale attack on Damascus to murder Assad, his Family and Supporters. However, Russia will stop this planned atrocity and has warned US if it goes ahead, it will be the last thing they’ll ever do.

  • Michał Hunicz

    What next? Only 3 opposition pockets remaining!

    • Siegfried

      ……. AND DISQUS quick jumped-in and stamped my post as SPAM :)). F*king J€wish-Zy0nist c€nsorship
      Reconciliation Deal With Government Forces” .. when they cannot oppose resistance anymore. And ALL may go.. where the USA and ISRAEL wants them, in neuralgic points IDLIB, ALEPPO..

      WTF is this? The Syrians fought hard and lost a lot of good men for ALEPPO and now all that J€wish-Zionist mercenaries MAY GO THERE?

      Sometimes I have to ask myself WFT is going on :do the Russians a double-game and “dance tango” with ISRAEL’s paid garb@ge in Syria over the head of ASSAD ??

      OK , out of question !! =>without the Russians ASSAD would be already dead, but what’s going on there is a little TOO TWILIGHT. A dangerous game for ASSAD and the Russians, to make DEALS with the f*king USrael mercenary cr@p.

      The SAUDIS already want to pay, arm and send another bunch of thousands of such g@rbage into SYRIA.. And the old cr@p regroups in VITAL PLACES in Syria..

      These dog-fights will never end like this. Maybe the Russians should finish the sh*t and let this “courtesy” to that anYmal Bibi Netanyahu.

      Because Putin & ASSAD would have better poker-cards in the hand if some ISRAELI-planes get shot-down by “Syrian air-defense”.. like the Russian S-400 (sic!).

      Just shoot down 5 or 6 Israeli F-15 and let them bark after that, tell them that you didn’t know that ISRAELIS have something to do with that what happens in SYRIA.. OR DO THEY HAVE and SINCE WHEN? ISN’T THIS AN INTERFERING into a sovereign State, recognized by the United Nations? ..

      Too much care of the “Zi0n-Jid0w-“feelings” there..
      By the next attempt, shoot a few missiles into their air-base and tell them .. “-NOW WE MAY TALK…. The next ones are 5-6 ISKANDER NUKES, if you don’t get your brains out of your a##es and pull them up, back between your ears.”

      • Redadmiral

        Interesting rant, you have hit a lot of points that appear in my mind
        but are eventually dismissed, because I believe Syria would have been
        smashed to smithereens only for Russia’s intervention. Unfortunately,
        what has become abundantly clear over these past 18 months is that Syria
        will not get S 300 AD System let alone S 400. There really does appear
        to be something unsavory playing out in the background.

        • Joe

          He is the same one that talk bad about Putin and seems to know all Putin’s moves

        • Tudor Miron

          I’m not so sure about S300.

      • gustavo

        Yes, Russia position with respect Israel-Iran-Syria is not clear totally. Russia position with respect Kurds (USA-puppets) is even less clear. Russia position with respect Turkey-Syria is the least clear of all. Russia ambiguity with respect to give Syria and Iran excellent defense weapons (S-300 and S-400) (because Israel does not want to) is an amazing statement (assuming Russia policy is not controlled by jews).

      • Joe

        You changed your name from starlight?

    • Redadmiral

      The pockets might have to be put on the back-burner. Looks like a major confrontation is about to explode in Deir Ez Zor. Yanki Scum pushing their fodder proxies towards SAA for all out war with SAA. Worried that SAA will not have the air cover they will need. Russia need to guarantee air support and deliver S 300s Now. http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13970211000542 en.farsnews.com/newstexhttp://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13970211000878t.aspx?nn=13970211000878

  • Barba_Papa

    I reckon this is the first time that just having the Tigers show up was enough to force a surrender. East Qualamun went pretty fast but this set a new record.

    But let us not cheer too soon though. Headchoppers have a tendency to change their minds at the last minute. Especially the ones of the Al Qaida brand.

  • Rob

    Excellent. Well done. There is any better news than this?

    • Barba_Papa

      Sure there is. How about:
      – Netanyahu caught in a motel room with a cheap Palestinian hooker doing him up the ass!
      – Trump caught grabbing Hillary by her pussy. To his horror found dick instead.
      – Saudi crown prince narrowly avoids death by Houthi missile. Instead slips on lose dollar bill on the way to his bunker and breaks his neck.
      – Macron’s 60+ old wife divorces him in favor of a 20+ African illegal immigrant. Says she needs a real man instead.
      – Boris Johnson trips on the way to his car, accidentally opens his briefcase and releases a cloud of Novichok gas that kills half of Westminster. Only surviving cabinet minister for Horses and Hounds is now sworn in as new PM.

      • palegreendot

        Damn, that’s some good stuff. Gives me reason to hope.

        • Ronald

          My bets on # 1 , but Boris would be better.

        Thanks for the larfs Barba_Papa – that cheered me up a lot!

    Lots of great thinking in these comments!
    Thank you all!
    My feeling is that Russia needs to do something soon.
    This rickety ladder of threats and skirmishes makes all outcomes in doubt – and vulnerable to ownership of the first strong hand. That hand need not be military – but it needs to be decisive. I would hope it is not Trump’s hand – it might be strong, but it is inept and will cause more problems than it solves. And it cannot be Netenyahu – that thing is hardly human – and is not representative of life. Assad could do it – if backed. China perhaps?

  • RichardD

    This is amazingly good news if it transpires. I hope that it does!

  • goingbrokes

    Hurrah! Way to go!

  • Tudor Miron

    Another part of Syrian map turning red – what a beautiful sight!

  • Eskandar Black

    Well, they are either surrendering, or buying time to prepare a gas attack.

  • gustavo

    Reconsiliation means more suicide bomb for Damasco civil people ?

  • eagleye13

    Fascism and Communism are both totalitarian systems of government.
    That is why striving for those systems under any name, must be reversed.
    Globalism has been striving for that for decades
    To understand that agenda; Google: “CFR,TC,Bilderberg”

    *Council on Foreign Relations CFR & Trilateral Commission TC Background & Quotes*

    “An end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal attack” – Richard Gardner ,
    Ambassador to Italy – quoted in (CFR)Foreign Affairs, April, 1974
    “Actions at the multinational level will be needed, if the process of international relocation of industries is to be accelerated in an organized fashion…….” TC Report #23, 1982
