Israel Wins Russia Concession to Move Iran, Hezbollah from Syria-Israel Border

Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the joint staff, said on Thursday that Washington would deem it a bad policy for Syria if it attacked the SDF militant group, which enjoys massive USA support. An agreement on disengagement of forces in southwestern Syria has been reached and it will be translated into life shortly, the Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya said on Friday as he commented on reports an agreement, which concerned a pullout of Iranian forces from Syria's southern regions.

The US has deployed more than 2,000 troops to northern Syria near the border with Turkey, which Damascus has repeatedly condemned as a violation of its territory.

'"But we all know that a new battle will not do any good for anyone", Kino said on June 1. "The maintenance of that deconfliction zone is important and we would view very gravely any actions that tended to change that".

Tensions between Washington and Damascus boiled over in April, when USA and allied warplanes launched a series of airstrikes against suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria.

A handout picture released by the official Facebook page of the Syrian Presidency on May 31, 2018 shows President Bashar al-Assad (L) giving an interview to a journalist from Russia Today in the capital Damascus.

Brief readouts from the Kremlin and Netanyahu's office said only that the two leaders discussed a "Syrian settlement" and "Iran's military entrenchment in Syria".

"We have one option: to live with each other as Syrians".

In an interview with Russia's RT television on May 31, Assad asserted that he is willing to negotiate with Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that are allied with and embedded with USA forces and now hold about one-quarter of Syria's territory.

While US President Donald Trump has floated the idea of withdrawing American troops from Syria, multiple officials from the Pentagon and the State Department have said the US troops are going nowhere, and that territories liberated from IS by SDF will not be returned to the Syrian government unless Assad leaves power.

The Syrian president, however, believes he will outlast the Americans.

"This is our land, it's our right, it's our duty to liberate [these areas], and the Americans should leave", Assad told RT. And look what happened to them.
