BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Russian military offered the U.S. Coalition to jointly control the Al-Tanf region in southeast Homs, the Sputnik News Agency reported on Friday.

Citing Russian Chief of Staff General Valeri Gerasimov, the Sputnik News Agency reported that Moscow offered the U.S. Coalition joint control of the Al-Tanf region in order to alleviate the humanitarian situation at the nearby Rukban Refugee Camp.

“For our part, we proposed to end the monopolization of the region and considered a joint Russian-US control over the border crossing, but the American partners left our proposals unanswered,” the Russian commander said.

The U.S. has been in control of the Al-Tanf region since their rebel allies seized the area from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in 2016.

Since its capture, the Al-Tanf region has turned into an area of influence for the U.S. Coalition; it has also allowed them to remain close to the Iranian forces in southeast Syria.

Something for the US to consider when Russia offers something substantial in return, like control over part of Idlib or better, Daraa in the south. Best would be Hadar region along the Golan heights.

Except Russia doesn’t control Idlib, the Great Sultan controls Idlib…

Would not be the first time Russia gives away something they do not control. Think of Afrin.
