The United States continues holding the 55 km zone around the Syrian community of al-Tanf where 6,000 militants are staying, Head of Russia’s National Defense Control Center Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev said on Tuesday.

“Perhaps, only our American partners do not want to see up to date how much has been done to revive peaceful life in Syria. They are holding with incomprehensible stubbornness the occupied 55 km area around al-Tanf where 6,000 armed militants are on the loose and are preventing the disbanding of the Rukban refugee camp,” the general said at a session of the inter-departmental coordination headquarters of Russia and Syria for the return of refugees to Syrian territory.

According to Mizintsev, this is actually the last stronghold of evil, injustice and horror for ordinary Syrian citizens set up by the United States on the territory of the independent state.

“I would like to emphasize once again that Rukban is the territory illegally occupied by the United States and that is why the entire responsibility for the conditions of the life of Syrian citizens is borne solely by the United States,” Mizintsev pointed out.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Igor Tsarikov said that the ministry was concerned over the dubious activity of the United States and its allies in Syria.

“There is growing concern related to the dubious activity of the United State and its allies in Syria. The illegal occupation of the 55 km zone around the base in al-Tanf continues to be the basic source of destabilization in that part of Syria,” he said.

According to Tsarikov, the humanitarian operation held in early November was a failure from the organizational standpoint. Representatives of the UN and the Syrian Red Crescent Society were not let into the occupied US zone, he said.

As AMN recently reported, Russia offered to co rule the region, they either considered the US to have the right to be there just a week ago but not so when the US refused Russias generous offer or Russia is being it obnoxious self, like always.

The reason for Russians offering help you fktrd is so they can at least monitor the terror squads that the US is training in that region and for humanitarian purpose. Lets not loose sight of who the occupiers are.

As Iranian , Hezbollah and Russians are there at the invitation of the legitimate Syrian government they are unable to be referred too as occupiers. However Turks , American , French and ALL other foreign forces allied too the US in Syria are illegal occupiers. . As they are all there illegally there are a legitimate military target . International Law doesn’t care if you agree or disagree with the ruling government.

That is corret. Furthermore, even a ruling government can act illegally under international law.

Inviting allies to your own country isn’t breaking international law. Invading without a UN mandate or invitation from the local government is against international law.

civil wars have two or more governments until peace prevails. stopping hostilities and disarmanent are relatively easy. shaking hands is the hard part. kurds will never again touch the hand of invading, enslaving, back stabbing arabs. there will never be peace in the me with arabs
