Iran and its proxy forces, such as Hezbollah, are preparing to withdraw from southern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Thursday, as part of a Russian-backed plan to return Syrian government forces to the country's border with both Israel and Jordan.

Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has said that Damascus is ready to reassume control over northern Syria if talks break down between his regime and the YPG/PKK terrorist group.

"We are concerned by these reports of an impending Syrian regime operation in southwest Syria within the boundaries of the de-escalation zone previously negotiated between the US, Jordan and Russian Federation", U.S. Army Lt. Col. Earl Brown from the US Central Command told i24NEWS in a statement.

"We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces", Assad said.

He also claimed that direct conflict between Russian military and US forces had been "close" in Syria, and that it had only been avoided thanks to Putin's leadership. "We are looking for ways to force Iran out of Syria", the envoy stressed.

Last year, the USA began arming them before an offensive to recapture Raqqa, the former de facto capital of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS).

"Next week I am going to Germany, France and Britain", he said Wednesday in Tel Aviv. There has been no confirmation of such a deal, however, from Russia, Israel or Iran.


Trump blamed Assad for the attack, calling him an "animal" and securing the support of UK Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron to launch strikes on his regime. "It represents him, and I think there is a very known principle, that what you say is what you are".

"We have Iranian officers, who work with the Syrian army as a help but they don't have troops".

Assad said he would attempt negotiations first with the SDF, "because the majority of them are Syrians, supposedly like their country, they don't like to be puppets to any foreigners".

Syrian President Bashar Assad said that Damascus has almost won the seven-year war, stressing that every iota of the Syrian land will be liberated.

The comments followed Syrian President Bashar Assad's insistence that the U.S. should leave the Arab Republic.

During a meeting with Russia's Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu in Moscow on Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told his Russian counterpart that Israel appreciates Russia's support of Israel's security considerations in Syria and in the Palestinian territories. Israel wants Iran-backed forces removed from areas near its border and from Syria in general.

According to him, Israel and Russian Federation have been intensively discussing the issue of Iran's military presence in Syria, which "is aimed against Israel".
