Earlier this week a photo of the alleged ceasefire deal between the US-backed Syrian Democratic forces (SDF) and ISIS appeared online. According to the document, the two sides reached a ceasefire agreement to avoid clashes in eastern Syria, especially in the province of Hasakah. The SDF allegedly agreed to avoid engaging ISIS units, fighting with sides not involved in the agreement – in other words, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Within the framework of the agreement, the sides would establish a hot line and a military coordination room to maintain the ceasefire and to inform each other about military movement close to the contact line. Civilian and economic traffic would also be open between the SDF-held and ISIS-held areas.

On Tuesday, the SDF media wing released an official statement on the issue and claimed that the circulating document was fake adding that this is a part of the propaganda campaign against the SDF.

Even if this particular document is fake, the SDF is the main side responsible for the fact that people are ready to believe in such reports. The US-led coalition and the SDF have repeatedly insisted that they make no deals with ISIS. Meanwhile, they made deals with ISIS in the cities of Manbij, Tabqah and Raqqah and allegedly made a deal with ISIS-linked tribes in the area of the Omar oil fields.

In the province of Deir Ezzor, the SAA eliminated the entire ISIS-held pocket south of Mayadin and are now deploying units for an advance to clear the ISIS-held area northwest of al-Bukamal.

In northeastern Hama and southern Aleppo, the SAA has liberated the villages of Abisan, Aziziyah, Ramlah and Rasm Khala and repelled an attack on the village of Rashadiya by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formelry Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda). In total, government forces have liberated 17 villages from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham since the start of the advance west of the Ithriyah-Khanasser-Aleppo highway earlier in November.

    ¿ SDF-ISIS Ceasefire agreement ? I wonder whether there was a time where there was fire. Both of them are Israel-USA-NATO puppets.

    • Frank Behrens

      omg…you are soooo right, since the sockets, trolls and tin-foil-heads here declared to us again and again, that ISIS and SDF are the same. So this document HAS TO BE a fake. :D

      Btw. who is writing such “articles” (no name , no responsebility…something to hide?). This is no information at all (since we already had all those infos )…especially the last third …again the great SAA and its allies “liberating” towns and areas. What has that to do with the issue?

    to fight and resist the evil zionists ZOG ,the evil zionists rothschild’s evil israHell and and the evil house of saud crypto-jews in saudi arabia wahhabia who do nothing but damage ( who’s king in the late 1960’s addressed all the UN and arab countries requested them to recognize and accept israHell as a country) and their allies’s control/occupation of governments and the arab land of palestine and its neighbouring arab countries, to fight and resist those zionists is to fight to remove them from governments and economic power without removing them out of these office from these positions and freezing their USD currency assets monopoly dominanting global markets and trades( the 1 dollar bill has shapes of the stars of david ) wars instigated by zionists bankers on sovereignt independent states and and against their territory’s integrity will continue and the zionists’s scheme to establish a one global government control could be all set .

    they must be removed from these positons (by us who are fighting them and only by us ) in order to get international peace progress prosperity and a good better and more positive dialogue between all countries and their peoples who their own peoples will lead and decide what to do by and for themselves. manage what their internal and foreign affairs to other countries and people’s would be and not led by some private zionists’s monopoly organisation who wages wars on whoever they want and on behalf of whoever they control and whoever bans rothschild influence and rothschild’s-controlled banks into their country!

    should such a future international peace progress proccess dialoge between countires is to be then israHell turkey saudi arabia eritrea/ethiopia and pkk-rojava-peshmerga-kurdistan could be excluded because of their evil role of their tyranny and the logic of them even not being officialy recognised as countries (or maybe even by then they would already cease to exist before that) but rather occupiers of stolen lands by wars of aggression who occupy arab Palestine land and other neighbouring arab countries’s lands and their natural resources assets illegally from wars of aggression like e.g. Yemen and Somalia afghanistan with daesh and AQAP muslim-brotherhood-extremists and taliban and other plots of the the mossadistic so called “alliance of periphery” with their puppet collaborators alCIAda and MI6 .

    all of Western Sahara and its people will be freed from the corrupt dynasty government of morocco’s illegal occupation which has a long history of collaborating with the zionists’s mossad and will be a recognised country by all nations ( hassan II and the mossad were behind Mehdi Ben Barka’s dissapperance / kidnap / assassination !

    Birobidzhan isn’t enough for the evil zionists’s obssesion of world domination conquest . .

    When a politician have no knowledge then he cannot reply to injustice argument. Most of Muslim politicians are illetrate, unprepared and have no political leadership qualities. From them donkeys are better because no nation will keep expectation on them.

      The Arab Jewish were poached by the Zionists as cannon fodder to ethnically cleanse Palestine of Palestinians. Mossad false flag operations, such as bombing synagogues, were carried on by Mossad agents. UN Watch is a well funded and mendacious Zionist propaganda organization, and nothing more.

      • Rob

        The original Palestinian Jews are against Israeli fake state. They don’t want disintegration of Palestine or formation of Israeli fake state.

    Look at map colors, and for all the B’S of victories by Syria proper the truth remains, US and its’ mercenary forces have control over every position of economic and tactically advantaged Syrian lands.
    Lands that , once again despite hype, The SA A and it’s Russian military advisors and equipment dare not cross into.
    Look at all the known pockets of resistance the SAA left behind in their failed attempt to Beat NATO/US owned ADD forces from gaining Syria’s most productive oil fields.
    Pockets where not the SAys proper is clearing but multiple malitias groups, groups that may want a combined Syria but are not exactly in love with Assaad.
    Syria has about 10-12 seperat e commands and each vies. Begs and wheeleds for both new troops and supplies from Russia not Damascus.
    The difficulties SA a has against relatively few nut cases who seem to sprout up anywhere, anytime and any place they want, goes to show how weak their military really is.
    Without Russia air power they could not hold a Safeway store from unarmed shoplifters. And just imagine trying to go up against both Kurds and ISIL who are as well armed, if not better, and aided by US airpower.
    ANY SKIRMISH NO MATTER HOW MINOR THAT HIZ/LEBANON OR IRAN GETS INTO means Syria goes backwards once again as those foreign troops head for home fronts.
    There are only tiny battles being won by Syria and by time they get done mopping up what lands they have left Hiz, Iran, Turkey and Russia are already saying ISIS defeated battle won, so where does that leave ASSAAD but to accept some political settlement dictated to him by US allies and Russian allies.

    : Turkish army still preparing a military attack against Syrian Democratic Forces in Afrin region and getting reinforcement

    Turkish media claim that the attack on SDF will start in the next 2 days. However, such claims have often been made in the past.

    It doesn’t matter, SAA will come for you.🐯

    ISIS instead of defend Raqqa, Al Bad, Manjib, Omar oil fields and north east part near Turkey/ Iraqi border to link with sunni islamicTurkish population…go to a war in the middel of the desert without any strategic position to defend and backcover to fight vs SAA…so anyone can explain it?..or everyone knows that ISIS only offered a few resistence in Raqqa and had an agreement with USA/Saudis to sell oil fields in exchange of money and to rescue ISIS commanders and their families and send them to Saudi Arabia or another part!?.. so the answer of my friend is blowing in the wind… of the Raqqa/DZ desert……

  • FlorianGeyer

    This mini ISIS caliphate will have to be liberated by the SAA in due course. The US will of course be resupplying ISIS in the meantime. Perhaps Iraq will be willing to provide a corridor so that the SAA can avoid avoid the Trip Wire of the SDF.

    NO SISFIRE TAK YOUR COUMTRY SYRIA ASSAD OVER ITS OVER UNDER RUSSIA PROTECTION AND GOLANHAY TOO NO MORE GAME DONT PLAYING TO LAND NAVER

  • So…. the US does negotiate with terrorists?
    Or just those they make?

    • jerry Hamilton

      Negotiate with them? The US are the terrorists.

      they give their dogs the occasional bone it seems

  • Larry Larsen

    Ceasefire means ISIS keeps a toutable presence in Syria. ISIS presence, however nominal, means US stays in Syria.

    Document very likely, but not certainly, real.

    I hope the SAA moves across the Euphrates in Iraq and backdoors this deal by wiping out this last major ISIS pocket. What’s the US going to do, bomb forces fighting ISIS and/or Iraqi troops? Hard to justify either of those things, but they will try to find a way.

  • Keith Smith

    Better communication lines than the US offered Russia when they entered the war. This is just so that ISIS can join SDF forces and run to somalia, and SDF forces can fight for ISIS, re supply them, and allow them to fight Russia further down the line
