Reading the news about it, it seems that the election was won by an anti-US shia cleric who has close ties to Saudi Arabia and distances himself from Iran. Sounds like a puppet and controlled opposition to me, tbh, but it's too soon to pass judgement.

https://www.rt.com/news/426617-gaza-protests-embassy-jerusalem/

https://archive.fo/zqWuY

>Fifty-five Palestinian protesters, including six children under 18, have been killed by Israeli fire during demonstrations on the day of the US embassy's inauguration in Jerusalem, the Palestinian health ministry said Monday. More than 2,700 protesters have been injured in Gaza on what has been the most violent day of the six week long Great March of Return. Those wounded on Monday include 203 children and 78 women, according to the ministry. The Palestinian government denounced Monday’s violence as a “terrible massacre” perpetrated “by the forces of the Israeli occupation”, and called for an immediate international intervention to prevent further deaths. A day of national mourning has been declared by the government in Ramallah, to be held Tuesday.

>Around 35,000 protesters gathered at the border fence and thousands more within half a mile of the vicinity, according to Israeli Defence Forces. Clashes have also reportedly broken out between protesters and the Israeli Defense Forces in Bethlehem. The first of Monday's deaths was 21-year-old Anas Hamdan Qudeih, killed east of Khan Yunis, a spokesperson for the ministry said. A 29-year-old man, Mosaab Yousef Ibrahim Abu Laila, was later killed east of Jabalya. Some of the dead have yet to be identified. Six children under the age of 18, including one girl, are among the fatalities.

Nobody in the West cares about Palestine. The media and government are either paid off or have vested interest in supporting Israel. The left is funded by kikes who ain't gonna fund no kvetching against Israel, and most of them only know what the MSM tells them. The right is controlled oposition capitalising on the fact that after WW2, few people have a personal experience with kikes and that being anti-jew is a tabboo, BUT after Europe's enrichment, most people on the right despise muslims and wish for their total genocide, so messages of Israel slaughtering arabs by the dozen makes them just like Israel more.

The only people who support Palestine are muslims, anti-semites (a rare breed in the west nowadays), and people who actually do know the history and current events of the region (even rarer).

It's all about "enemy of my enemy is my friend, hence Israel is our greatest ally!" and pure, undiluted ignorance when it comes to history and current events. This shit is a textbook example of why democracy is fucking bullshit that doesn't work – because the average voter is this much of a retard who, despite having easier access to information than anybody else in history, does not know and does not WANT to know about the shit he supports or denounces – he's fully satisfied with second hand rumours and impressions along with someone in position of authority telling him which side is the "good guys".

>after Europe's enrichment, most people on the right despise muslims and wish for their total genocide, so messages of Israel slaughtering arabs by the dozen makes them just like Israel more.

Since you bring it up, I have a theory about this. I've seen Galut Edom prophecies brought up on /pol/ before but most anons don't seem to realize how important it is. Below is a link where an average American rabbi writes about these prophecies and how amazing it is that they match contemporary world events, seemingly not realizing that the reason they're happening is because of manipulation of global politics by powerful kikes.

http://www.betemunah.org/edom.html#_Toc454393180

>The Sages speak about a great battle between Edom and Ishmael. This great battle was foreshadowed by the Crusaders against the Turks in their battles for control of Eretz Israel. The final battle between these two titans will make the crusades pale in significance. […] So, Ishmael and Edom will wage war against each other for three months and end up destroying each other. Wow!

In case its not obvious, to the kikes:

<Edom = Romans/Christians = Whites

<Ishmael = Arabs/Muslims = Middle Easterners

Its too early to tell exactly what they're plotting, but we know that the kikes want the sandnogs living in war-torn Middle East to migrate to Europe so that they can take over whats left of it for "Greater Israel". With that happening, considering how Muslim birth rate is way higher than White birth rate, as some people have predicted the two could eventually become equal in numbers. So one theory I have is when that happens, kikes might try to ignite a war that ends up severely weakening both sides. To "destroy" both of them could also mean to mix them into a single lower IQ mongrel race, which is what /pol/ thinks they're trying to do, but tbh I think it would be easier for the kikes to simply import workers from Sub-Saharan Africa if thats what they were after. I could just be totally wrong about all of this, but its worth considering I guess.

>>1663

it's difficult to say that the actual end goal is, but it's easy to say that it's nothing good for us. They entrench themselves in positions of power and then try and subvert the host society, to destroy the country. Maybe they're motivated by revenge? It's fairly obvious they despise gentiles and would love to see them all dead. Muslims in Europe are just means to an end; a poison to weaken the society further and pave way for whatever they plan next.

>The Syrian military’s offensive in northern Latakia has been postponed due to the recent developments in the northern part of Aleppo city. According to a military source, the recent attacks by Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in Aleppo city has forced the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Russian counterparts to beef up their numbers in the provincial capital. Furthermore, the Russian and Turkish delegations at the Astana Peace Conference are currently discussing a plan to reopen the Aleppo-Gaziantep Highway, which is partially blocked by HTS in Kafr Hamra.

>HTS has long been a problem in northwest Aleppo, as their forces continue to wreck havoc on the Al-Zahra Association Quarter and its nearby districts in Aleppo city. The goal of the Syrian Army’s offensive will be to not only clear Kafr Hamra, but also, the nearby districts of Al-Layramoun and Al-Zahraa.

The leaflets specifically called on the rebels to lay down their weapons and seek reconciliation with the government. The government warned the rebels that they are already winning and that taking their arms with them won’t change anything on the battlefield. In addition to addressing the rebel forces, the leaflets also called on the residents in Daraa to join the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in their war on terror. With the battle of southern Damascus nearly finished, the Syrian military is starting to move their forces to the Dara’a Governorate, where they are planning to launch a big assault in the near future.

>The US military is building a new base equipped with advanced military tools and systems in Badiyeh (desert) al-Sha'afa in Deir ez-Zor province, adding that the construction of the base has been justified as a move in support of the SDF against ISIL in Eastern Deir ez-Zor, while SDF has been engaged in several confrontations against the Syrian army. The sources further said that the US forces and the Washington-backed militias claim to be preparing for a possible operation against ISIL in the region, while they are spreading to the territories held by the Syrian army.

>According to Sergey Lavrov, Egypt has numerously stressed that it will not send its troops outside its territory as its military doctrine stipulates that the armed forces must defend only the borders. Russia views positively Egypt’s decision against sending its troops to Syria as was proposed by Washington, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after negotiations between Russian and Egyptian foreign and defense ministers in the 2+2 format on Monday.

>"We touched upon this issue in the context of discussing the Syria situation, in the context of discussing actions of the so-called foreign players, including, of course, the United States, because it is precisely its idea to invite Arab countries to send their contingents to the Syrian Arab Republic. As I understand, this is done for the dual purpose: on the one hand, to share responsibility for the direct and gross violation of the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Syria, which did not invite the United States and other participants of the US-led coalition to its territory, and the second goal is to share the financial burden. Washington is talking directly and openly about this. I believe everyone understands what stands behind this invitation and we appreciate the position assumed by Egypt," Lavrov said.

>On May 16, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the al-Hula region in the western part of the northern Homs pocket, thus imposing its control of all the former positions of the militants in northern Homs, according to the Hezbollah media wing in Syria. Earlier, the SAA and its allies entered into the towns of Rastan and Talbiseh in the northern Homs pocket and reopened the Homs-Hama highway. The General Command of the Syrian Armed Forces announced the liberation of 1200 square kilometers and 65 villages in southern Hama and northern Homs. The national flag was raised on Wednesday over the city of al-Rastan and Talbeisa town in the northern countryside of Homs after cleansing the area of terrorists who were evacuated to northern Syria. Units of Internal Security Forces entered al-Rastan city and Talbeisa town amid warm welcome of citizens, according to SANA’s correspondent. The locals gathered in the main squares of the two areas, expressing satisfaction at the return of security and safety to their areas.

>Over 31,000 militants and their relatives withdrew from these towns and villages under the agreement. Sources reported that most of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) officers and fighters in northern Homs pocket had chosen to reconcile with the Damascus government and handed over all of their weapons. These fighters are expected to join the SAA and other pro-government forces in the upcoming months.

What actual ramifications are there for Russia looking "weak and inactive"? There's certainly a lot demoralization shilling.

But any country with two brain cells can tell that the course of the war would not change and the US would only further hemorrhage money propping up a half baked puppet state.

Are they shilling themselves?


ab5854 No.1681

>>1679

"weak and inactive" is just the latest round of shilling aiming at swaying public support. In Russia, looking weak would be a reason to change the leader, but Putin got fucking Crimea – Russians will never think him weak after that. Russia's allies take note of Syria and think Russia stronger than in decades, and Europe is fed with fearmongering so that doesn't fit either. It's really only there for burgers and maybe some european countries like France, in a "Russia is dangerous but we can totall win easy! Don't be afraid of a war!" kind of way.

It's not going to work save on people who are already rabid estabilishment supporters anyway. Anyone with two braincells to rub together can see Russia is a reemerging superpower – just consider:

>South Osetia and Abkhazia taken

>Crimea taken

>Luhansk and Donetsk likely also eventually taken

>turned the tide in Syria

>regional US allies buying Russian weaponry in bulk

>Diplomacy over Syria held in Astana under Russian supervision; US talks in Geneva ignored by everybody

And more. For example, the Crimea bridge – a veritable megastructure finished in a little over 2 years, showing Russia is both capable of building big and modern and of building fast, something many countries in the west can only dream of.

In the end, a massive amount of US influence lies in being perceived as the strongest country in the world that has no competitors – it's why it gets away with so much bullshit; it relies on might makes right. If that perception is damaged, its influence will suffer – maybe not in Europe, which is controlled by the same kikes US is, but distant allies in near east and other places? They'll happily tell US to go fuck itself if they think they can get away with it and if Russia offers them a better deal. And so US shills itself as the most powerful and Russia as weak, to maintain the illusion to as many people as possible. The fact of the matter is that while US indeed is the most powerful, it is no longer without rivals.

Four American military helicopters conducted four sorties of heliborne operations in the villages of al-Qeirawan, Haresat Sinjar, al-Ta'ef and Abu Kabra, evacuating a group of ISIL terrorists to an unknown location.

>Field sources reported that a US military convoy moved to Northeastern Hasaka from Iraq on Wednesday. The convoy consisted of several military vehicles and personnel carriers, noting that it entered Tal Beidar region between Qamishli and the town of Tal Tamar which is occupied by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).The sources said that the military equipment will likely be transferred to one of the US bases on Eastern Euphrates.

>Russian President Vladimir Putin has held a meeting with the Syrian leader Bashar Assad in Sochi, the acting presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. The two leaders conducted “extensive” negotiations, he added. s the two presidents talked about the conditions that would facilitate the peace process development, the Syrian leader said that he had decided to send a delegation to a committee tasked to rewrite Syria’s constitution, which was championed by the UN. he agreement on the creation of the constitutional committee was one of the major results of the Sochi peace congress held in January this year.

>The participants of the congress agreed on January 30 to set up the constitutional committee in Geneva, and to hold democratic elections in Syria. At that time, Moscow said it expected the UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, to take practical steps to implement the decisions taken at the Sochi Congress, and to actively participate in the drafting of a new constitution for Syria. The three countries, who brokered the Sochi Congress, Russia Iran and Turkey vowed to fully support the UN and de Mistura in the implementation of its outcomes. The Constitution Commission is expected to comprise some 150 members including the delegates from those groups who did not attend the Sochi gathering in January.

>During the Thursday meeting, the two leaders also discussed the necessity to intensify humanitarian efforts in Syria as well as the issues related to economic recovery of the war-torn country, Peskov said. Putin also congratulated Assad on “significant advance in fighting against the terrorist groups” on the Syrian territory.

>US, Israel can aid coup in Iran & if it fails, let Iranians fight each other – ex-Mossad official

https://www.rt.com/news/426980-mossad-iran-regime-change/

https://archive.fo/1L6LP

>The US, Israel and Saudi Arabia – can change regime in Iran, and Trump’s policy provides an opening for it, a former top Mossad official speculated, adding that if a coup fails, Iranians will still be fighting each other. Haim Tomer, a former Mossad official said to lead Intelligence, Counter-Terrorism and International Divisions, explicitly talked about possible options for regime change in Tehran during an interview with the Jerusalem Post. Claiming that the “Khomeini-ist Islamic state” wants to destroy Israel, Tomer argued: “We can deal with the threat itself: nuclear weapons, conventional Iranian missiles. We can defend against them.” The former intelligence chief went further, saying Trump’s policy on Iran “created a major opening… to carefully weigh pushing for regime change as a formal goal.”

>Tomer outlined what a possible coup in Iran would look like. Israel could “clandestinely help facilitate regime change” and the US “could support it on various fronts,” while the Saudis could fund the effort. Asked what exactly Israel could try, he said “clandestine actions can lead to change… There is a lot that the Mossad can do when it gets a mission. I cannot go into the details… but it would be clandestine.” Tomer, who now works as investment and tech advisor, bluntly said that the Iranian government – presided over by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei – is unpopular with the Iranian public, and the Supreme Leader himself is old and has health issues.

>He said Mossad, widely believed to have carried out several clandestine operations on Iranian soil in the past, can play a crucial role in conspiring against the Islamic Republic. “The Mossad carries out substantial and complex operations – and has carried out many,” referring to 2013 reports that Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz was ravaged by a Stuxnet malware. “The Mossad has done many things in Iran before. This was among the most important, but there have been operations like it, and maybe even more important,” Tomer said.

>The ex-Mossad official also said that the Israeli intelligence agency is one of few which carries out targeted killings. “[Regarding] targeted killings, very few [foreign intelligence agencies] do this; Israel [is one that] does, according to foreign sources,” he added. However, he acknowledged: “I am not saying it will be a piece of cake – The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Basiji militias are very strong.” But even if it does not succeed, “it is better to have the Iranians fighting among themselves.”

https://southfront.org/senior-russian-official-us-turkey-iran-and-hezbollah-should-withdraw-from-syria/

https://archive.fo/saTZ3

>On May 18, the Russian president’s special envoy for Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, said during a press conference in the Russian city of Sochi that all “foreign forces” should withdraw from Syria after the defeat of ISIS, including Iran and Hezbollah. “The talk is about all the foreign military units in Syria, including the Americans, the Turks, Hezbollah, and of course the Iranians,” Lavrentiev said answering a question about what “foreign force” should withdraw from Syria, according to the Russian news outlet Sputnik.

>Lavrentiev noted that the withdrawal of “foreign forces” don’t include Russia, as it has two permanent bases in Syria. The Russian president’s special envoy said that once the situation in Syria is stable again the Russian military units will remain inside these two bases only. “On the other hand, except for our two bases, there is nothing, and with the stability of the situation [in Syria], we will of course still have these two bases,” Lavrentiev said.

>A day earlier, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stressed during a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad that all “foreign forces” should withdraw from Syria after the recent achievements of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). Despite Russia’s calls, local observers doubt that US, Turkey or Iran will withdraw from Syria anytime soon, as the three countries are using their presence in the war torn country as a bargaining chip each against other.

>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.

>Smart news reported that the French Forces paid a visit to Kandal Field in Western Raqqa in Northeastern Syria that is under the control of Washington-backed militias. It further said that the French forces left their base in the town of Manbij in Northern Aleppo to set up a security base in western Raqqa, adding that almost 140 militias will go under intelligence- security trainings under the French forces' supervision. Meantime, other reports said the French are running talks with ISIL in Eastern Syria.

>The Arabic-language al-Ahd news website quoted militant-affiliated sources as disclosing that the talks between the French forces and the ISIL meant to reach an agreement for the release of 5,000 captives in ISIL's jails, adding that the French forces, in return, would insure the ISIL terrorists' safe evacuation from the villages and towns of Hajin, Albu Hassan, al-Sha'afa, al-Shouseh and al-Baqouz in Southeastern Deir Ezzur. Based on the agreement, the ISIL would be relocated to Abu Hamezeh and Tal al-Shayer regions in Southeastern Hasaka near the border with Iraq. Also, both sides agreed to continue talks over the release of 620 women and children who are family members of ISIL militants that are in the Kurdish fighters' custody.

In other news, Damascus will soon be safer than Paris for tourism destinations (If it's not already).


239e6c No.1700

(What follows is still not officially confirmed but that should change within hours)

ISIS surrendered in Yarmouk. Evacuation buses are already in Hajar al-Aswad but it remains unclear where they will be transported. Earlier reports were denied by the SAA but this time it seems legit. The SAA repeatedly said ISIS wouldn't escape death but apparently everything can change in this conflict. All this talk about ISIS members wishing to fight to the death was seemingly a bit exaggerated. Perhaps they saw recent images of an ex-ISIS commander who now lives comfortably in Turkey (shaved his beard and now running his own business), and felt jealous about it.

>4th Division Soldier : Hajar al-Aswad is under complete control. ISIS in Yarmouk Camp & Taqadom & Tadamon have unconditionally surrendered and have until 5:00 AM to hand over all kidnapped & bodies of martyrs & weapons. Possible destination: Sukhnah countryside desert pocket. The safety of our remaining soldiers and our hope of their return to their normal lives is what forces us to accept any offer of peace.

I'd like to say this is unacceptable but I'm not on the ground getting shot at. If this can prevent more suffering for Syrian families, give security to Damascus residents and allow the SAA to finally make a serious move elsewhere, it's pretty positive. Having said that, let's not forget how ISIS executed a SAA soldier a few days ago. I hope they make it "safely" to their destination and eventually get what they deserve.

There's no (official) Syrian media coverage of what's taking place in Yarmouk. They'll just announce the liberation and pretend no one from ISIS was evacuated or something else. Seems pretty ridiculous given the amount of information made available by 4th division troops on social-media.

>Daraa

Many different sources reporting a new SAA operation in Daraa province will "soon" start. The only reason I mention it this time is because it's not just one or two people reporting it. There was a number of reasons to believe Idlib would be next but Daraa was always a possibility as well. Israel will attempt to get in the way but they won't be able to stop the SAA. The name of the operation seem to have been leaked prior to the announcement but I don't know what it is yet.

>Iraq's new 'Kingmaker?' Nationalist, anti-American cleric scores big parliamentary win

https://www.rt.com/news/427266-iraq-elections-sadr-kingmaker-us-iran/

https://archive.fo/99c78

>A Shia cleric with strong anti-American views is poised to become kingmaker in Iraq. Muqtada al-Sadr's coalition emerged victorious in parliamentary elections, signaling a resurgence in Iraqi nationalism, analysts told RT. Al-Sadr's Sairoon Alliance capitalized on widespread anger over foreign influence and unchecked corruption in Iraq, securing a surprise victory over Iran-backed Shia militia chief Hadi al-Amiri's Fatah (Conquest) Coalition, and US-backed Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's Nasr (Victory) Coalition.

>Anti-America (and corruption) crusader? - The prominent Shia cleric is an outspoken critic of US military presence in Iraq, even leading two revolts against American-led forces after their 2003 invasion. At the same time, al-Sadr is also opposed to Iranian influence in Iraq. His ability to appeal to Iraqis' sense of nationalism seems to be the main driving force behind his coalition's unexpected parliamentary victory. "On the one hand, for example, we see the Nouri Maliki faction is pro-Iranian, as for al-Abadi, it's the pro-American one, and Muqtada is trying to play off the two groups. That is why many Baathists and communists supported his [bloc]," Dr Jamal Wakeem, professor of history and international relations at Lebanese University in Beirut, told RT. A former UN spokesperson for Iraq, Said Arikat, however believes that anger over corruption – and not al-Sadr's anti-American views – was the biggest factor in his electoral success. Although al-Sadr's coalition is "made up of people who have very strong anti-American views… Iraqis feel let down and have had it with the corruption of their government. So that's the bottom line. He was elected not because of his anti-American stance, but because of his position on corruption," Arikat told RT.

Nah, it's perfectly logical. Yarmouk is a goddamn fortress that they've been unable to crack for a month now, every building they bomb is a building they will have to tear down and rebuild later, and there's shitloads of civilians and prisoners trapped in there with ISIS. By moving them to the desert, they need not waste soldier lives trying to take a fortress, they will be free to bomb them to oblivion without fear of civilian casualties or material damage, and they'll get to grab all the heavy weaponry from ISIS before they move them. It's a good deal and not the first time they negotiated with ISIS.. It's just a matter of what you value more – bragging rights about slaughtering ISIS to the last man, or the lives of your people. Syria made the right call, and ISIS is going to get slaughtered sooner or later anyway.

>Nezavisimaya Gazeta: Iran rejects Moscow’s call for it to leave Syria

http://tass.com/pressreview/1005664

https://archive.fo/szkS3

>Tensions between the guarantors of Syria’s ceasefire - Russia, Turkey and Iran - are mounting, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes on Wednesday. Tehran has rejected the Russian leadership’s call for it to pull out foreign contingents from the Syrian Arab Republic stressing that its forces are there at the official invitation of Damascus. Experts link these statements to possible bargaining between Moscow and Washington on Syria. One of the US demands for Russia could be exerting pressure on Iran, the paper says.

>Anton Mardasov, an expert from the Russian International Affairs Council told the paper that Russia, Turkey and Iran used to have tensions, but due to their common goals they were defused. Now Syria has regained control of nearly its entire territory, which is not divided into de-escalation zones, and the major goal is to reach a compromise with foreign parties controlling the remaining areas. "It is not ruled out that Russian representatives are in talks with the Americans on decreasing their presence in Syria and tackling the problem of the Kurdish protectorate. This may occur but probably in exchange for diminishing the Iranian presence in Syria," the expert said, noting that Russia may be also bargaining with the Persian Gulf states.

>The analyst believes that the agreements on Syria’s southern territories, signed in Jordan, signaled a compromise between Russia and the West on the Iranian forces there. "Apparently, Russia should have influenced Iran, but this did not happen," Mardasov said. "These statements [by Russia’s authorities] most likely fulfill political goals amid the talks with some foreign parties, which possibly promise something in achieving a political solution." However, there is no sense in demanding the full withdrawal of Iran’s forces from Syria, the expert stressed. "Tehran will still remain there through many various local groups sponsored by it. The Iranian presence may be cut, but Tehran’s forces won’t go anywhere." However, Russia has the means to pressure Iran, Mardasov noted. "This is Israel," he said. "That’s why strikes by the Jewish state against Syria are very beneficial for Russia."

>Syrian deputy FM says pullout of Iran forces ‘not for discussion’ – report

>Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said on Wednesday that the withdrawal of Iranian forces from Syria was “not up for discussion,” according to Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen TV. “Whether Iranian forces or Hezbollah withdraw or stay in Syria is not up for discussion because it’s the [business] of the Syrian government,” Mekdad was quoted as saying. Washington has demanded that Iran, among other things, pull out of the Syrian conflict or face severe economic sanctions. Mekdad also said that that the Syrian army could head north or south after crushing militants in a string of enclaves around the capital. “After ending the direct terrorist danger to Damascus, the door is open to heading north or south,” the official said.

The above was during an interview with al-Mayadeen. Now what follows is an interview with Sputnik. Notice any difference?

>Damascus: Pullout of Iranian Forces, Hezbollah Units from Syria out of Question

>Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad stressed that the withdrawal of Iranian forces and units of the Lebanese movement Hezbollah from Syria is not on the discussion agenda. "This topic is not even on the agenda of discussion, since it concerns the sovereignty of Syria. We cannot let anyone even raise this issue. Those who ask for something like that — and this is definitely not our Russian friends — are considering the possibility of intervention in all parts of Syria, including the support of terrorists in Syria and elsewhere in the region," Mikdad told Sputnik. Damascus "highly appreciates" the help of friendly forces from Russia and advisers from Iran and Hezbollah in the struggle against terrorists, according to the Syrian diplomat.

>The statements by the United States about its intention to withdraw troops from Syria and replace them with Arab forces are aimed at drawing the Arab countries in direct conflict with Damascus, Mikdad added. "The main goal of such statements is to pump the money out of the Arab countries. This will force them to pay more to the US treasury, which may be empty. As well as drawing the Arab states in direct conflict, as far as I can guess — with the Syrian government, and this is a dangerous situation," Mikdad said, adding that Washington will ultimately not withdraw its troops.

>Iranian Leader Declares Requirements for Continued Implementation of N. Deal with Europe

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13970303000001

>Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Wednesday declared five prerequisites for the EU to keep Tehran under the nuclear deal, underlining that the three European nations are necessitated to prove their trustworthiness after their disloyalty to a similar deal in 2005. Addressing a meeting with former and present Iranian officials here in Tehran on Wednesday evening, the Iranian Leader reminded defiance of undertakings by Britain, France and Germany back in 2005 when Iran embarked on a voluntary implementation of the additional protocol to the NPT and halted nuclear activities, and said the European trio "showed a major disloyalty; they made a promise in 2004-2005, but defied. Now they should prove that today they won't show the dishonesty and disloyalty of that day".

>Ayatollah Khamenei asked officials not to repeat a single mistake twice, and cautioned, "Europe has displayed that it accompanies the US in most sensitive cases." He further blasted the Europeans for keeping mum about the US frequent violations of the 2015 nuclear deal in the last two years, and said "the EU is required to make up for this silence". Ayatollah Khamenei reminded that the US has violated UN Security Council Resolution 2231 that accompanies the nuclear deal, and said hence "Europe should issue a resolution against the US violation" of the agreement. He said "the EU should also undertake to avoid a discussion of Iran's missile and regional power". The Iranian Leader reminded that the nuclear talks were aimed at the removal of the sanctions, "many of which were not lifted, while they have been recently threatening to revive the sanctions desipte the emphasis of the UN Security Council resolution" to the otherwise. The Leader further underlined that the EU should also pledge "to take action against any kind of sanction against the Islamic Republic and stand against the US sanctions on the basis of a clear-cut position".

>"Europe is also needed to ensure Iran's full crude sales," he said, and explained, "In case the Americans manage to strike a blow at our oil sales, (we) should be able to sell whatever volume of oil that we want. The Europeans should compensate (for the loss in crude sales) in a guaranteed manner and buy Iran's crude." Ayatollah Khamenei also underscored that the EU banks should also ensure trade with Iran, and said, "We don't want a fight with these three countries, but (we) don't trust them either because of their past record." He further warned that "if Europeans delay in complying with our demands, then Iran would preserve its right for resuming nuclear activities". "Once we observe that the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) produces no fruit, then one way would be reviving the operations that have been shut down."

>Syrian-Russian Delegation Dispatched to Dara'a Province to Start Reconciliation Talks with Militants

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13970302000438

>A Syrian-Russian reconciliation delegation has been forwarded to Dara'a province to offer the militants to lay down their arms and join the peace agreement with the Syrian Army, military sources in Damascus reported on Wednesday. The sources said that the reconciliation delegation has been sent to the towns of Nahij and Mohaja to call on the militants to end battle with the army and endorse the peace agreement. The sources further said that if the militants reject the peace offer the army will launch military operation against them.

>Also, the sources said that the army has sent a long convoy of military equipment and thousands of fresh forces to Azra base in Dara'a. The sources said that the army plans to reopen the strategic Nasib Passageway at the border with Jordan as its first priority of operation in Dara'a, adding that the passageway was occupied by the terrorists four years ago. On Tuesday, the army forwarded a large number of forces and more military equipment to the town of Azra'a in Dara'a province. A number of armored and personnel carrier vehicles were sent to 175th Regiment Base. In the meantime, the army's helicopters dropped thousands of leaflets over militant-held regions, calling on the militants to agree to the army's peace offer. A military source pointed to the army's last ultimatum to the terrorists, saying that the army will launch its operation if the militants oppose Damascus's reconciliation plan.

(Just when Tiger Forces are launching an offensive against the ISIS pocket. Probably just a cohencidense.)

>US-led coalition warplanes have bombed several Syrian army positions in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, state media outlet SANA reports, citing a military source. The attack took place shortly after midnight on Thursday. SANA reported that the US-led coalition aircraft inflicted limited material damage. It is unknown if the attack caused any casualties. The airstrikes, which hit near the city of Al-Bukamal, were reportedly coordinated with anti-government militants. Earlier, Lebanon’s Hezbollah group, an ally of the Syrian forces in the fight with Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL) said the coalition jets targeted two Syrian army outposts, including an energy installation near the Iraqi border.

Casualties

No casualties reported thus far.
