Russia And United States To Announce Ceasefire In Southeastern Syria

FILE IMAGE

The Associated Press reported on Friday that Russia and the United States have reached a ceasefire agreement covering the entire south of Syria.

According to the report, three US officials assured to the Associated Press that the ceasefire will be implemented next Sunday, and that the agreement had been reached after talks between Russian President Putin and his US counterpart, Donald Trump.

Jordan and Israel are allegedly part of the agreement as well, but US officials did not talk about the details of the agreement or how it will be implemented. However, they stressed that it’s different from the de-escalation zones agreement. And it’s believed that the new deal will include both Quneitra and Dar’a at least.

Separately, Syrian Air Force warplanes and attack helicopters carried out 30 air strickes on the villages of Ayyib, Umm al-Kharz, Al-Musab, Al-Jisr and Jadal in the Al-Lujat area in the northern Daraa countryside. The Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed that it shelled Khalkhalah air base in the northern Suweida countryside with dozens of Grad rockets, in response.

It’s worth mentioning that all the ceasefire agreements in the Syrian south have failed previously, mainly because of the existence of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its great influence over the FSA in southern Syria.

    The US and the Zionist trash want the PMU and Shia Militias to be limited in their military reach.
    These cease fires give Occupiers** legitimacy to remain …And political leverage,..when infact,
    The occupier is chicken neck weak positionally.
    Remember the Russian General who lit into Putin/Lavrov over ceasefire and Terrorist get a ride out with weapons?
    Turkey/Erdogan just screwed Astana for another month more…
    Lol….all these illegal squatters dictate the tempo/direction of the conflict.
    ISUS is finished in Syria and Iraq…
    The US will of course create another fake narrative to justify it’s smash dicks into every opening and bomb.
    Russia does Kabuki theatre. …While Iran is Forced play like baseball to support the Shia Cresent
    Which the Masonic/Zionist gamesters of Triskelion (Star Trek)…..Want!!
    If US packs it’s bags after ISUS is gone…..I’d be most happy to admit I was wrong .
    The Masonic MIC game since the 1700s needs war,chaos and intrigues,….they know of no other
    Way….to play the game.
    Putin and everyone you think is on the opposite side of the coin toss, ….know the Measure of the
    Game. ….before them.

    Something wrong is with the author of the article: AP’s info is about ceasfire in southWEST Syria starting Sunday, not in southEAST.

    • Mountains

      exactly. The race for the southeast have even intensified more and more

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      The US are trying to say that the Southeast is the region ,but its not and that border was last active in the time Leading up to the Saddam’s coup back in ’83 and even then it was light . Mostly saw Civilian travel and very light commercial , Iran has been using other methods for decades . This is just a staging point for US forces and nothing more in order to attack Damascus .

  • Daniel Martin

    The only problem is that Trump can not deliver on this promise, since he is not in control of his government the pentagon and CIA call the shots in US foreign policy. It is more likely that we will have another U.S strike on SAA in the coming days that will sabotage this deal as such incidents all ways happens when some sort of agreement takes place between the US and Russia.

    • EL ZORRO

      The United States is RUN by the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS, they CONTROL THE CIA, PENTAGON, FBI, NSA, STATE DEPARTMENT, JUDICIARY AND BOTH HOUSE OF CONGRESS, THE UNITED STATES IS A BANANA REPUBLIC. The very same saboteurs of the American Republic today found their genesis in the Illuminati secret society of Adam Weishaup of Bavaria May 1, 1776. The warmongering traitors, who now operate at the highest echelons of the U.S. Federal Government and are responsible for turning the USA into a BANANA REPUBLIC and a feared military juggernaut, are the product of the Illuminati agenda to thwart the American Experiment. Their primary strategy and MO have been to use secret societies(CFR, FREEMASONRY), FALSE FLAGS and conspiratorial plots(Russian HOAX), respectively, to undermine the nation. This, they have done, since the very day the Declaration was signed.

        El Zorro Part 1. I have to say when I read comments like yours I wonder if you are deliberately lying or just brainwashed. I think in your case you are not capable of independent thought and you are brainwashed as proven by your quoting the Guardian, a racist supremacist Jewish puppet organization. Here is some info to try to help you
        Shouldn’t it be The Guardian, the BBC or The Daily
        Telegraph that look into these matters? Why aren’t they?

        So that you learn how Israel and its Lobby are plotting against Britain and the
        Brits. So you learn about our treacherous MPs who are shamelessly serving a
        foreign state and its foreign interests. Ask yourself, how is it that the most
        important news about the institutional betrayal of our political system is
        delivered to us by a Qatar TV network? Shouln’t it be The Guardian, the BBC or
        The Daily Telegraph that look into these matters? Is it a coincidence?
        The Israeli Embassy told us that Shai Masot was a junior employee. Watch this
        video and judge for yourself, he seems to run the entire Labour Party.
        Britain must probe the activity of the Jewish Lobby and the Israeli Embassy
        immediately !!! And if you want to understand why this plot is embedded in
        Jewish culture just read this.

        Even if it sounds crazy and I may differ on the details I tend to agree with the above. There’s one important detail. In US you have both local/national elites, global elites and a mixture of above. Locals may don’t even understand what is going on (GP shifts its power center off US soil) but Global elites (Trump is their representative) do and they work on schedule. Locals hate loosing priviledges associated with being world hehemon and opposing their very masters – global elites. Opposing in terms of redistribution of wealth between fiew but not in terms of aims. They all serve the same master :) but they have different personal plans.
        Let’s see if prediction of some of Russian experts was right and Trump is going to reformat US and GP’s main power/influence center is moved. Russia would still be a crucial step for GP to regain total Earth dominance. However simply maintaining control over coming “next technological step” of human race is good enough for GP as he’s not on a hurry… yet.

    If it involved Israel then it’s no doubt a bad deal. Netanyahu has been calling for a buffer zone between Syria and the occupied Golan Heights in order to prevent Syria from ever threatening the illegal Zionist occupation of the Golan Heights after the end of the war. I hope Putin doesn’t betray Syria by giving the terrorist Zios a piece of Syria’s territory for the sake of appeasement.

    • Spence Manchester

      Have You heard about The Palestinian that Invented ….. ?

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Have you ever heard of anything a Jew didn’t steal !

  • Ronald

    There have been reports in FarsNews of a massive build up of troops in Jordan , near Israel , across from Dara’a . These troops are so numerous , that VT , was calling it an “immanent invasion” .
    So the southwest , not the southeast , as the headline states , is the area of the US – Russian cease fire . This cease fire may have put off an attack aimed at Damascus , or a big chunk near the Golan Heights .

  • Tom Tom

    SouthWEST.

  • EL ZORRO

    “RUSSIA AND UNITED STATES TO ANNOUNCE CEASEFIRE IN SOUTHEASTERN SYRIA”…HAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHHAHAH Another document to be violated by the UNITED STATES and blame Russia.

    • hhabana

      I will believe when I see it, but Russia should not trust the West. SAA keep up the attacks and Syrian government work with their Allies to consolidate power. Kurds, I’d let Turkey destroy them for their betrayal. Total submission to Damascus or death.

      • EL ZORRO

        Every time the Syrian army is beating the hell out of the UNITED SNAKES COALITION, INTERNATIONAL MERCENARIES TERRORIST, out of nowhere UNITED SNAKES want a “cease fire” as excuse to be used for re-arm/re-group and bring fresh MERCENARY to the front; but the sad part is that always Russia fall for the same TRICK; Russia should said, the only cease fire will be implemented when ALL THE MERCENARIES AND FOREIGN UNITED SNAKE COALITION FORCES are DESTROYED AND LEAVE THE SOVEREIGN TERRITORY OF SYRIA.

  • gustavo

    Bad news for Syria army since this help only to terrorists.

    • Rodger

      How? They hold mostly useless ground and the Syrian army can now focus more on ISIS. Because the ‘opposition’ is made up of many groups whenever one breaks the deal they can eliminate that group. But it’s all about the details. Israel will probably demand a complete withdraw of all Hezbollah and Iranian troops in Syria or something silly like that.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Israel can’t make any demands since this area could very well include the Golan Heights . That would be the ultimate joke on those Hasbara Jews !

  • gfsdyughjgd .

    Hallo and yes my friend and Russia runs for ceasefire and implementing it with Syria government enemies instead of requisting the legitimate government of Syria.If Turkey gets involved just one and the same story.This is the weakness of Russia it never put allies like Iran and Syria on agreement agendas.The world does not belong to any nuclear overloaded country never does human life attached to it God is in control.Destruction of human life were plan by devils children from the very beginning of human life but were never achieved so far.Even during coming tribulation which devil himself will run his achievedments will be limited.Wait and see the army that will be target is SAA with many false acusations by USA/NATO and Israel.Russia will be informed prior to attacks and in return will assure Syria that it will strengthen air defences.Let me tell you both this white countries are busy with weapons testing in Syria.You never see USA , Israel or Russian jets are downed like the misiles only knows Syrian and Iran drones.

  • dutchnational

    While not joining the weird conspiracy theories of other commentors, this agreement clearly shows both countries consider this to be their proxy war and to a high degree they are correct as far as the south goes.

    There remain risks though. Have they indeed full control? Will Iran try to interfere? The exact zones? Will Jordan open the border.? The IS pocket in Yarmouk basin?

    A long term ceasefire remains to the benefit of the civilians.

  • Miguel Redondo

    Here you have the opinion of another big brain in analysis.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DCu0XQe7Ss

    For Ray McGovern the ceasefire agreement is a test to find out how far is Trump controlling his entourage.

  • John Mason

    When the war ends then who gets to keep Southern Syria? Can’t see the US and their terrorists moving out and handing ove rthe territory to Syria otherwise they may as well do it now. Hope Putin knows what he is doing because if Assad comes to the conclusion that Putin has sold him out it would be very embarrassing for Yurria if they are told to get out of Syria.

  • paul

    This is hardly the first ceasefire. None have persisted. We will see but I
    don’t expect this ceasefire will do any better than any of the
    others.

    • Rodger

      And every single one has mostly harmed the terrorists.

  • Miguel Redondo

    I recommend strongly , very strongly . to hear this interview with Paul Craig Roberts. It is absolutely fresh!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnW9-NLAOiM

    If I had the possibility I would send it directly to Vladimir , he must hear this.

  • Boxman

    So Putin is going to sell Syria down the river. Let the US-controlled FSA militias control the entire Syria/Iraq border under the umbrella of US air cover (same modus operandi as the infamous “deconfliction zones”). IOW cutoff Syria/Lebanon from Iran. The Jew/Zio hand is obvious here.

    Maybe Putin doesn’t care about a Shia crescent, Hezbollah or Iranian interests. Maybe he’s content to sell them all out in exchange for keeping the Russian bases on the Syrian coast. This arrangement would screw Syria, Hezbollah and Iran but would allow Putin to declare victory and go home. He took a big risk in Syria and would no doubt like to quit while he’s still ahead.
