BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – Several U.S.-backed rebel fighters willingly surrendered themselves to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces in the Homs Governorate this week, Sham FM reported.

According to the Sham FM report, members of the U.S.-backed rebel forces in the Tanf region of southeastern Homs agreed to surrender their weapons and equipment to the Syrian Arab Army after lengthy negotiations.

The conditions of the agreement were not released; however, a source in Damascus said these talks had been ongoing for some time, with some militants requesting to go to the Idlib Governorate.

The Al-Tanf region has been under the control of the U.S.-backed rebels for several years now; they captured the area during a military operation from the Iraqi side of the border.

Despite repeated calls of withdrawal by the Russian and Syrian forces, the U.S. military has refused to leave the area.

The U.S. claims they are maintaining their presence in southeastern Homs to fight the Islamic State; however, there has been little terrorist activity within the Al-Tanf region.

High time for the US to cease its illegal operation and occupation in AL Tanf.
This has long since been a sanctuary for various terrorist groups instead of a base to actually fight terrorism from. So GTFU now!

Looks like these Jihadis just saw that Uncle SAM was doing nothing about getting rid of Daesh and just guzzling the Syrian Oil from the Tanaf Oil fields and giving them peanuts and toilet papers in return opened their eyes. These Jihadis now want to Idlib and do what join HTS or Turki backed monkeys? No wonder once a dumb Islamic JIHADI ALWAYS A

Note that the contract they signed with the Yankees stipulated that they were banned from attacking Syrian army. They were hired to go after ISIS and nothing else.
It’s very possible that many of the “former rebels” that Russia has hired to fight on the behalf of Haftar in Libya come from their ranks.

You are completely a moron to even contemplate to educate us on evil U.S activities in Middle East.
