There are no Iranian-backed forces in southern Syria, Russian Ambassador in Damascus Alexander Kinshchak told reporters on Thursday.

“This issue has already been settled. I have repeatedly heard from different sources that there are no pro-Iranian, Shiite units in the south of Syria,” he said.

In July 2017, Russia, the US and Jordan coordinated the setting up in the southwest of Syria a de-escalation zone that incorporated three southernmost provinces of the country – Daraa, Quneitra and Suwayda.

The decisions envisage a certain sequence of action, as a result of which no non-Syrian forces will remain in that area. Israel and the US have repeatedly insisted that the region be free not only of Iran’s military, but also pro-Iranian Shiite unites.
