On Monday evening, the Syrian Arab Army’s spokesperson issued an official statement regarding the recent news of the Russian military’s gradual withdrawal from Syria.

“After many victories achieved by our armed forces, alongside our allies, in the war against terrorism, the Russian Federation has decided to yield control of the military initiative to the Syrian Arab Army command. With our ongoing operations against several terrorist organizations and the recent expansion of the cessation of hostilities agreement, the Russian Federation has decided to reduce its military presence in Syria.”

The Syrian Arab Army spokesperson then followed with an ambiguous statement that alludes to the continuation of combat operations with their allies – the “allies” in this statement were not defined or listed.

“The Central Command of the Syrian Armed Forces confirms its steadfast commitment to continue combat operations against Da’esh (ISIS) and Jabhat Al-Nusra until these terrorist entities are defeated. We (Syrian Army) will defeat them in cooperation with our allies and friends in order to restore security and stability to every inch of our beloved soil. 

The statement was short and to the point; however, the spokesperson for the Syrian Armed Forces did not specify what kind of presence Russia would have inside the country.
