BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura stressed that with the Russia-Turkey deal over Idlib “there is no reason not to move forward expeditiously with the political process,” during a UN Security Council in New York City on Tuesday.

Russian representative Vasily Alekseevich Nebenzya, however, told Mistura to “facilitate but not to lead the process.” He added “The Syrian decisions need to be owned by the Syrian people themselves as is stipulated in Resolution 2254.”

“If Russia is interested in bringing peace to Syria, it should make sure Iran and its militias leave Syria once and for all. The risk of a broader conflict will leave with them,” US representative James Jeffrey stated.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Monday that Russia and Turkey have agreed to establish a demilitarised zone in Idlib by 15 October, along the contact line of the armed opposition and the Syrian army.

Putin about 1 year+ ago said that the only ones really fighting ISIS at ground level were SAA and the Kurds. There are just a few thousands Iranians and a few thousands of their proxies. The goal is to gain political influence and technically Lebanonise both Syria and Iraq to make ’em vassals too… I’m gonna help you to understand what they are really doing. – Khamenei/IRGC openly back Hamas which is part of the Muslim-Brotherhood, the cradle of al-Qaeda. Hamas openly backs al-Nusra in Syria but also ISIS/Sinai-Province which hides in Gaza. – Khamenei is the Farsi translator for… Read more »

WWII is coming……. Tragic circumstances? Not! This was an attempt by Israeli AF to stage a false flag by getting the Russians to fire on the French frigate as an attack on a NATO country to activate Article 5’s clause that NATO would respond. Although President Erdogan and Russian President Putin step back from the of brink of WWIII, Israel has tried to pull off what appears to be false flag attempt by flying in over the French frigate and in the immediate vicinity of the IL-20 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces [VKS] that was attempting to land to… Read more »

Ridiculous conclusions and for good reasons : Russians were NEVER targetted by IDF and the attack wasn’t on the VKS or Ru-Navy premises. In fact, what we do have are Iranians and Hellbollah doing their arms trafficking and planting arms depot where there is Russian air defences since these are inter-connected with SyADF, in the hope SyADF will shoot down anything coming after their shenanigans or, ideally, that Russians will feel under threat and start to launch S-300/400 missiles. A NATO frigate into doing cruise missile strikes wouldn’t stay only 50km from the coast! Hey, Hellbollah could even shoot their… Read more »

Here’s the consistent theme in all of this: Chabad Putin will consistently sell Syrians out for the sake of the likudnik theft of Syrian land, oil, gas and water, and his own pocketbook. And he’s doing this for benefit of the very same savage Bolshevik yids who did the 1917 revolution.

And drunken Russkies are happy with this guy?
