  1. I hope there are consequences for those who do not abide by the ceasefire.Also ways to mitigate regrouping and replenishing supplies by the “opposition”.The so called opposition have have been using this chances in the past to regroup,replenish supplies and then attack Syrian army positions.

      • 360k shithadists+mercenaries entered Syria ONLY from Turkey since 2011, Sept 2016 numbers. At this moment, 120k went back home, 95k were killed, thus, some also crossed to Syria to join ISIS in Iraq or in Lebanon… Not counting what came from Iraq, Jordan and locals. Hard to say if some went home through Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq or even Israel

  2. Note that in //, some of them are supposed to merge in a HUGE alliance very soon!
    So, the Hudaybiyyah treaty for them is :
    1. Keep quiet for a while
    2. Resupply weapons and replenish manpower
    3. Wait most of Russian troops and aircraft are gone, wait that numbers of IRGC and Hezbollah go back home
    4. Strike fucking hard
    5. As agreed with Erdogan and al-Jubeir : Assad must go, Jolani for prez!

    “It will be interesting how Turkey separates ‘Moderates’ from ISIS/AlNusra in North Aleppo though”
    => 😀
    “I notice the Al Zenki child killers are not on the list.”
    => Grilled as a group. Be sure they merge with another.

    “I don’t trust any of em. Just me though.”
    => I actually trust them… Only when pushing up the daisies.
    Although… You also can trust the fact they’re doing taqiyya 😉

  3. “Ahrar spokesman Ahmed Karali said they did not sign the truce agreement because they had some reservations.”
    => Wait for the next one to not sign…
    “Hezbollah says fighters from the party will remain in Syria indefinitely, despite Turkey’s demands that the group withdraw”
    => Gollum won’t be happy.

    The main question now : who will torpedo the ceasefire?
