BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Syrian and Russian governments issued a joint statement on Monday that called on the U.S. to end their occupation of Al-Tanf and all other Syrian territories.

“As the U.S. military command in the al-Tanf area demonstrates its inability to ensure the commitments made by the United States to implement the U.N. operational plan, we call on the U.S. to leave the occupied Syrian territories immediately and allow the legitimate Syrian government to access to the areas,” the statement said.

“We believe that the only way to restore Syria is through the ultimate destruction of terrorism, the liberation of all territories, including those illegally occupied by the United States and its allies, and the return of all Syrians to their homes,” they added

The Russian Armed Forces and representatives from the Russian and Syrian foreign ministries have said several times that the situation in the Rukban Camp is nearing a humanitarian disaster; however, the U.S. has repeatedly blamed Damascus and Moscow for the issues there.

The Rukban Camp is located in the Al-Tanf region, which is currently controlled by the U.S. Armed Forces and their allies.

US is more likely to withdraw its app 1.000 military once Turkey withdraws it 12- 20 k, Iran withdraws it 50 to 75k proxies, Russia withdraws it 10 to 20k diverse forces and Hezbollah 8 to 10k all leave first. Otherwise, they will remain and numbers will grow when relations with Iran get worse.Imo, unles Trump gets even battier, US wil have 3 to 5k before 2022.

Youre wrong. Russia and Iran are invited. Americans are occupiers, that s the difference.

Nope, because Karel is right : US won’t move until Turkey+Iran+Hezbollah are out, but he’s wrong about the Russian presence which is OK for the US. And you’re partly wrong about occupation: it’s more complex than this! Why? Because in most of cases, Syrian army withdrew without fulfilling its duty as an army : evacuating civilians from combat zones! Hey, if an army ain’t here to protect its public, it’s not a national army. So goes Intl. Law (Hague Convention). THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE! What US did was, at least in Rojava, empowering locals who actually already created a working… Read more »

No your wrong. The USA was not invited by Syria. Iran and Russia were. End of story. No excuses. USA should leave now.

All these other nations are from the region. The U.S. is halfway around the globe and has NO LEGITIMATE REASON TO BE IN SYRIA. PERIOD.

cotton is not coming back to the USA not to mill in great quantities at least. it will be where workforces can be abused…in Asia at this point….cotton grows well here…but the milling is where the money is… milling cotton and child labor atrocities started in England, then moved to the north east US than to the southeast US and since 1970;s in Asia millwork…but you are correct…at one time cotton was far more powerful than oil ever will be…oil is everywhere thus no one region is Omni powerful due to oil….the south was brought down much like the lies… Read more »

so the fact that the USA Isreal Saudia Arabia fianced the destabilization does the Hague Convention speak of that scenairo…there was not a civil war…. it was, in fact, terrorism…so no your answer far from neatly fits this situation and your abandonment claim is loaded to the favor of the agenda the USA and others sought by destabilizing…foul play…no dice…differently no abandonment drawing back when attacked by a coalition of countries all stronger then your own and their supplied mercenaries…how convenient an argument to steal Syria oil fields …respectfully your media sources may, in fact, have an agenda

You forgot to say that all kinds of s**t in Syria came from Israel.

Karel : Pompeo was clear in February : US are ready to back Assad’s presidency… Understated : if Syria opts for neutrality with Russia as guarantor. Translate : dropping Iran+Hezbollah. I think that Turkey proxies (FSA etc) were more about 70-80k before the start of the offensive on Hama/Idlib while Qatar’s roaches = mainly HTS (who “officially” broke from Qaeda😁😁😁😁😁) were estimated to 20-40k. There were surely “reductions” since the offensive started but it’s still a serious infestation. 75-80k IRGC and affiliated Afghan/Paki/Iraqi Shias were around before Russia’s intervention, seems they subsequently reduced to about 8k. Hezbo, due to budget… Read more »

You talk about illegal arms trade. So what? I call it equalization. And since when has the USA ever always acted legally. The USA and its puppet master Israel oh and include THE KSA constantly flout international law all the time but nothing happens to them. The world has woken up to this fact and so everyone does what they want. The UN is a toothless tiger.
