Russia and US in suspected deal in southern Syria

Russia and US in suspected deal in southern Syria


has stopped attacking Syrian forces near the Jordanian border and has
held back its jihadists. Many are suspecting that a deal has been
reached with Russia.

The Syrian Arab Army has been making strong and swift advances
through the deserts of southern Syria near the Jordanian and Iraqi
borders and are all ready moving north on Deir ez-Zor, one of the last
major terrorist strongholds in Syria.

According to Al-Masdar,

“Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army and
their allies stormed the Islamic State’s positions at the Talilah
Reserve, inflicting heavy damage on the latter’s positions.

Following a short battle on Friday afternoon, the Syrian Arab Army
and their allies liberated the Talilah Reserve in eastern Palmyra,
pushing their way to the strategic Talilah Crossroad”.

This comes after Russian Colonel General Sergey Surovikin issued a
stern criticism of the US which has attacked three Syrian and allied
military convoys in southern Syria between May and June of 2017.

Surovikin said,

“The coalition (US) air forces and the strongholds of the
forces of New Syrian Army (now known as the Revolutionary Commando
Army) have blocked the way of the government forces, tasked with
defeating IS (ISIS) group”.
