Forces must leave Tanf base

Bashar Assad World War 3: US THREATEN Assad with ARMED FORCE if he tries to remove troops from Syria

A Russian source said that Moscow refuses to offer details about the understanding with Tel Aviv to respect the balance in its separate relationships with each of Israel and Iran.

But Assad said Iran's presence in Syria has been limited to officers assisting the army.

Long-simmering tensions between Israel and Iran in Syria stepped up considerably in recent months, beginning in February, when an Iranian drone carrying explosives was flown from the T-4 air base in central Syria into Israeli airspace, and was shot down by an IAF helicopter.

Al-Muallem said that Iran has stood by Syria since the very beginning of the crisis in that fight against terrorism and "we thank the Iranian people and leadership for their help".

American military advisers and their counterparts in the Syrian Democratic Forces - a coalition of Arab and Kurdish militias battling the Islamic State - have operated from the Syrian city of Deir-ez-Zour and the surrounding Euphrates River Valley for most of the war against the terror group.

Israel has enjoyed amicable relations with Moscow regarding Syria since 2015, when Russian Federation began to intervene more heavily in the Syrian conflict.


But, she did call upon Syria and Iran - along with Russian Federation a key military ally to the Assad regime - to pressure the Assad regime to ensure violence does not break out between Syrian and American-backed forces. However, neither Jerusalem, nor Moscow, publicly acknowledged any agreement between the sides regarding Iran's military presence in Syria. The SDF, which Assad dubbed the "only problem left in Syria", would be confronted with force if negotiations fail, the president said.

Al-Moallem denied reports that an agreement was reached between regional and other powers over the situation of southwestern Syria where the country's Israeli-occupied Golan Heights are located. This comes as Russia's United Nations envoy tells reporters about Moscow's agreement with Tel Aviv on the withdrawal of Iranian forces from southern Syria.

Muallem also said that the presence of U.S. forces in Syria was illegitimate and they must withdraw from the Syrian territory, including Tanf area in the south.

Shamkhani was further asked about a recent agreement between Russian Federation, the USA and Jordan on a "safe zone" in southern Syria, and media reports that the deal was aimed at withdrawing Iranian forces from the region bordering Jordan and the occupied Palestinian lands. The area between the southern province of Daraa and the Golan Heights has emerged as a flashpoint in a wider standoff between Israel and Iran, and the United States has warned it will take action to protect a cease-fire there.

"Iranian military advisers have no presence in southern area of Syria and have had no role in operations there", Shamkhani was quoted as saying.
