Syrian Army And Iranian-backed Forces Withdraw From Key Positions In Southwestern Aleppo

Illustrative image, by SANA

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Iranian-backed forces handed over their positions around the key town of al-Hadher in the southwestern Aleppo countryside to Russian forces on May 17 and withdrew to nearby Izzan Mount, the Syrian pro-opposition news outlet Enab Baladi reported on May 18.

Syrian pro-government sources said the Russian Military Police will establish an observation post in al-Hadher in order to monitor the de-escalation zone in the southwestern Aleppo countryside.

The Turkish Army established a similar observation post in the town of al-Eis, only 3km west of al-Hadher town, on February 5 in order to monitor the same de-escalation zone.

The establishment of these Russian and Turkish observation posts was agreed upon during the Astana talks. These posts are a part of a bigger plan that’s aimed at opening the strategic highway between the cities of Hama and Aleppo, according to Syrian opposition sources.

Local observers believe that Russia will establish more observation posts in the southwestern Aleppo countryside, northern Hama countryside and the northwestern Hama countryside during the upcoming days.

    Turkey must go home and to stop to pretend it is helping to defeat terrorists. Turkey is protecting and helping terrorist at Idlib,

    • Merijn

      But Turkey will go back home… After the U.S. & Allies Left Syria is my bet…they are also a Bufferzone against SDF & their HeadchopperFriends….Splitting up Syria ain’t an option…and they Know it… it will become the Final Swamp for the Americans if they Do….is me guesstimate

      • Neurasth

        I dont think so. Dont be fooled, Turkey is still NATO, this whole ‘US & France’ so called ‘confrontation’ in Manbij is all theatrics for goyims. It was an excuse to move hardware to the Kurds. At the end of the day Turkey is Zio’s b*tch. They were never Syria’s friends, they are in Syria to partition it and they will annex Idlib.

        What I’m wondering now is what Russia is doing in dealing with them. The only positive I can see is that the ‘observation points’ that the Turks are picketing all over their shithole allows the SAA to disengage and mobilize troops elsewhere – for now. But in due time, the Syrians will have to confront them. The mass graves aren’t going to fill themselves.

        • Merijn

          You can be right… and I can be right too… it is just one Big Smokescreen… Even Putin & Assad don’t know all the details…

          • Neurasth

            Right. To be clear, I would prefer you were right than I am. Hopefully you will be, and the turks will leave. But when is there ever a positive intrigue coming out of anyone or anything related to Israel? Sadly, pretty much -never-.

            Look at how bibi treated the japanese prime minister at dinner with the”shoe dessert”.anybody believe the jew bibi that that was all a coincidence, and a bad “mistake”? no…thats the way of the jew showing his disrespect.look at hollywood controlled by the jews…anybody who checks out hollywood and its history will find out its the biggest child porn racket on our planet.ask corey feldman…charlie sheen….kevin spacey…and the KING fucker jeffery EPSTEIN, including bill clinton chris tucker and loads of others.

            The Jews, the Israhell is doing this in goal to take revenge for what happen 70 Years ago. The main goal is to destroy complete nord hemisphere like you said it. All this country must pay because they wher part of WW2 and they wher Jews killed.
            To bad that Hitler did a bad job at the end and did not have killed them all. It would be Paece once and for all , in Midlle east first place and then Worldwide!!!

    • Freespirit

      ” Gustavo “,

      A THOUGHT, not yet my THEORY, just a thought – What if TURKEY has been
      designated to take on Israel? Why do I query that idea?

      Is Russia using “War by Deception” against Israel?

      Russia is selling, top-of-the-linie, S400’s to Turkey , but changed its mind Not to sell S300’s to Syria. Israel had already stated it would not accept S300 being in Syria’s arsenal, which meant Israel would attack Syria if they were provided with such.

      Syria is in a very weakened condition because of long-term fighting Washington/ Israeli Mercenaries, called Terrorists, and in no way, could handle another and DIRECT front with Israel BUT Turkey could.

            Bin Laden was millionarie from Saud Familly a proud Muslim. He ordered attacks the Americans as response to their pressence and hositility…

            This is clear and doirect statement from our seikh:
            All the false propaganda about the
            supposed rights of Islam was abandoned in the face of the attacks and
            massacres committed against Muslims everywhere, the latest and most
            serious of which–the greatest disaster to befall the Muslims since the
            death of the prophet Muhammad–is the occupation of Saudi Arabia, which
            is the cornerstone of the Islamic world, place of revelation, source of
            the Prophetic mission, and home of the Noble Ka’ba where Muslims direct
            their prayers. Despite this, it was occupied by the armies of the
            Christians, the Americans, and their allies.

            how about joining together Shites and Sunnis and clean house. you are divided as you have always been. every western nation has taken advantage of your disarray. the brits, the germans, the italians, the u.s. and still you buy into the BS. wake up.

          • Hayʼat Taḥrīr al-Shām

            Yes it is a very good idea but how to achieve that? The doctrines are so different and opposite to each other in some ways that it seems to be impossible tasks without breaking up or reforming the religion of Allah (swt).

          • JustPassingThrough

            how do you do that?
            maybe you start by stopping the slaughter of each other.
            F* your doctrines. You live by an idea? An idea that is not even yours?
            Do you even know the difference in doctrines (i am not accusing you personally)? I doubt it. What is wrong about starting to talk to each other? Why do you have to break anything up? Can you not allow each other the freedom to choose their own way to god? It’s the same god isn’t it? You are being manipulated by people that know how to use your cupidity for their benefit. read your history. you have been screwed over by every western nation in existence and you still fight each other. at one time your people were glorious civilizations. you gave the world, music, art, science, mathematics and humanity in the face of barbarians. now you opt for the promise of some snake oil salesman that your future is in the next world. how does he know? he’s never been there. and he’s only interested in sending you there. it’s insane.

            prophets Muhammad will not let you in the better world if you do wrong .he never ask to kill people . Humans life only God = Alahh can take .who kill a human will be go to hell. Man can’t take other man’s life this is what prophet Muhammad says but .don’t believe to other people .just look in Quran .prophet Muhammad when he was fighting in Arab land he ask help from Christian king to win the war in soudi Arabia .

          • JustPassingThrough

            you keep believing that. its what your masters want you to believe. that way you don’t start thinking for yourself and therefore you are a tool, a drone, a patsy, a fool, cannon fodder. wake up.

        Turkey is ruled by aWH0RE. Today he is with you tomorrow with whom gives more.
        Putin bought the scvmbag with helping him to block the CIA-attempt to topple him and the Western-cold-shoulder to his megalomaniac ambitions drove the Turkish wannabe Sultan into the arms of PUTIN (and ASSURED the Russians the FREE-PASS from SEVASTOPOL-Crimea thru Bosporus, the shortest SUPPLY-WAY for the Russians in Syria.

        So Putin lets that Turkish @pe to play “Magnificent” a little, till things get clear in Syria.
        What STILL helps a lot is the DESIRE of this Erdogan to play the Protector of all Muslims .. and his engagement for GAZA, brought already TURKEY once in conflict with ISRAEL. NOW IT’S THE SAME since Netanyahu slaughtered Palestinians in Gaza again..
        Turkey has its own soup there, with the YPG-Kurdish Forces.
        Sorry for that Kurds.. but THEIR corrupt Leaders are MOSSAD-boots-lickers and this way the Turk kicks two flies with one hit: bombs the KURDS and f*cks ISRAEL..

        There is “half-time”, the game isn’t over.

        • Freespirit

          Could that be “War by Deception” ?

      • Liberty57

        I dont beleive that Turkey will really get the S400’s at the last minute it will be stopped, or a backdoor will be put into them so that the Russians can disable them electronically without them knowing. Russia must attack and invade conquer and occupy Turkey
        Turkey is Gog and Magog, and the seat of Satan ( Zeus throne I think ) is located there according to the bible. Once Turkey and USA are out of the picture then PEACE can come… ITs an EVIL AXIS,,,, its Saudi, Israel, USA, UK, France, all wanting to take over and not leave anyone at peace. The river Eurphrates can be a flash point. Better to confront them all now.. .French body bags, American body bags, UK body bags, Israeli body bags, anyone else ? like the stupid countries in Eastern Europe who sold their souls to NATO might have been NAZI hitler.

    the highway crosses HTS territory

    • Xanatos

      You’re right. This highway will never be open to Syria so long as HTS remains there. The turkish observation posts are east of the highway. Are Turks and HTS going to pull back? No. They are not. They have to be driven back.

      • Benjamin Facochere

        To my knowledge HTS is not part of the deescalation. It is considered a terrorist organization by both Turkey (at least officially) & Syria, Russia, Iran and also USA.

  • Rodney Loder

    A good bit of cooperation there, I think that Trump wants to pivot to the Pacific, which isn’t good for Australians, they become anxious about losing China as a primary trading partner, this is what happens when slimey Christian hop in bed with thriving Talmudists what you end up with is a venal bed of pox.

      islam is just another filthy branch of the same sick tree…

      • Rodney Loder

        There is not two trees in Islam only one, which tree in Christianity are you referring to ?, the tree of Knowledge or the tree of Eternal life, because as far as I know the tree of Knowledge is the tree of Eternal life, but don’t confuse knowing stuff with real knowledge which is a quality of decisio.

        Of course, ! this is philosophical but as a personal belief it can’t be garnered from a secular identity, actually no ethical behaviour can, because as individuals we only can deliberate within the context of self interest and emotional empathetic relationship, which is more or less the same thing.

        Qualitive measurement has to have a starting point or method of calibration, two trees is not valid in that regard because the cause of failure to come up with a correct decision can be off-loaded on to someone else (in this case Eve).

        Now, ! this is probably why queer bastards are so prevalent, mainly because everyone blames Eve so much that women have have become dominant as the cause of effect thereby taking over and replicated their sexual aspirations on to their subservient men folk, who enjoys being house pets.

        • matt

          the tree is called abrahamic religions, the branches are… you know!!

          • Rodney Loder

            I know about it, what happened was that there was a mistake, now, ! that mistake was replicated by Marx and the Bolsheviks put it right, what it was, was , Marx said it goes Slavery to Feudalism to Capitalism to Socialism but the mistake was with regard to symbiosis, whereby the Consumers become the consumption “not” of the surplus value but rather of the capacity to manufacture products thus no longer being able to ‘ be ‘ creating surplus values.

            Again Now, ! Alas unfortunately the first condescension had arisen following up the original symbiotic mistake that was symbiosis itself and evident in the beginning of reality even before substance was a conceptualization of a prognosis.

            Yes unfortunately Reality became an illness, and satan is to blame, again what happen was greed wasn’t evident until the greedy harbinger found himself in a position of authority and couldn’t let go.

            Allah had no choice but to put him in that position, because there was only Him, Space, Fate and the devil standing in as the Representative of Fate, I tried my best to be good, holy shit iveI replicated the mistake again arrrr.

  • Deo Cass

    The betrayal of Russia and the sell out of Syria is complete. It is simply a way to consolidate the partitioning of Syria into 4 countries deceptively called “Frederalism” according to the Zionist/Russian plan which was sold to the Syrain governmnt as: “de conflicting zones.” With this move Syria will never be able to liberate the remaining 48% of its sovereign territory harbouring over 80% of Syria’s natural hydrocarbon and water resources. Syria is de facto defunct as a state and the Zionist Putin is the main architect of this Zionist plot.

    • Merijn

      Do you have any links perhaps? Just to verify…because I’ve been searchin’ for this Evidence for quite some time… thanks in advance

      • Deo Cass

        The evidence is there for everyone to see. Nethanyahu in Moscow while the Zionist tyranny carries out one aggression after another against Syria with Putin and Russia remaining completely silent. Nethanyahu said quote: “We co-ordinate all our military operations against the Syrian regime with Russia.” No further proof needed.

        • Merijn

          What if Satanyahu was in Moscow to offer Putin 10 Billion Dollar to Pull Back from Syria, or Satanyahu made a little Threat Here & There..or Putin Threatened Satanyahu Here & There… or perhaps Satanyahu had to Lick the Dogshit from Putin’s Shoes..?

            That is long time gone and probably never existed anyway.
            The real reason why i come to this and many other kinds of websites is that i want to know what is different people tend to believe. It is like anthropology, one of my hobbies.

            Don’t know why you have not added matt to your block list.
            I think he qualifies to be on it. :)

            I did, but I unblocked all the Hasbaras again… to see what they write…so I can ask them a Question here and there… they don’t like Questions….

            And you have a childish view on native americans, the “noble pure” humans, that were ALL wiped out by the evil europeans.
            Were you raised as a christian, or one of your parents did?

      Russia is the last country on Earth that would support or enforce illegal partition of Syria or any other country because the very same scenario is planned for Russia itself by the Neocons. Russia controls 15% of the Globe with less then 150 million people of various ethic and religious backgrounds – perfect place for “balkanisation” or in this case “syriasation”. The very reason for Russia to fight in Syria is to prevent these Neocon scenarios to take place on home soil…

      You are looking at the small picture.
      The big picture is that American aggression is finally turning the other major powers against the USA.
      The US is in Syria because it wanted to stop the Iranian gas pipeline to Europe.
      The US has grabbed the southern Russia to Europe pipeline in Ukraine, stopped the proposed pipeline to Bulgaria and is now trying to stop Nordstream2.
      The US wants Europe to buy American gas, and only American gas.

      WWI was about the oil monopoly in Europe, the major battles in WWII were over Germany trying to gain access to oil.
      Germany will fight over this, this is their red line.
      A German Russian Chinese alliance would dwarf the USA.

      When you make a statement like that you need to include the supporting evidence. I’m sure there are many here harbouring similar conclusions. In this instance, circumstantial evidence is at best suggesting our worst fears. It might also be revealing a more sophisticated approach to undermining observed Russian tactics at the expense of their overall strategy, which we obviously know nothing about. I’m sure the Syrian Government have quite different goals than Russia, however without Russia, Syria would be in a far worse condition than it is today.

    If only Turkey slotted into place, the Empire would crack. But instead they play the double game. Hopefully a few more bitch slaps by the US will enlighten them to be less two faced!

    • You can call me Al

      I don’t know IIlya, we just do not know, what the agreements are. I change on a daily basis, but always just keep the hope close, that Turkey will not stitch the Syrians up.

      Remember the last thing that Syria, Iran, Russia and even Turkey will keep their real agreements away from the yanks – for obvious reasons.

    • BMWA1

      Even triple games are possible with Turkey.

  • Siegfried

    Well.. this time a clever move: THE RUSSIANS are there, so the Turks and the USA cannot bomb the area without being f*cked-up by the Russkis in retaliation.

    The TURKS are TOO CLOSE TO ALEPPO. It was understood that ALEPPO and the region around were liberated by the Syrian Army, so WTF are Turks and Al-Qaeda CIA and /or Turkey- “moderates” there?

    Too many “stops & goes” starting with January 2016 there..

    The word observation post seems more and more to seem to be code for a occcupying military force within an occupying paramilitary militia.

  • Bill Wilson

    Syria needs to start rebuilding it’s economy so having this major highway open to everyone will facilitate that.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    The SAA and Iran must never surrender. Putin is in bed with Benjamin Netanyahu.
    If need be, then the Monotheist of the ME must also kick out the Russian/Israeli alliance out of the earth forever!
    Monotheist Unite!

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    I thought they were being overrun by terrorists or soneone at first, scared me lol
