Syrian opposition agreed to ceasefire in East Ghouta and Afrin

60
A number of groups of the armed Syrian opposition in Eastern Ghouta announced their consent to submit to the UN demand and temporarily cease hostilities, reports TASS.




The document emphasizes that the detachments will observe the truce "in order to speedily deliver international humanitarian aid to the victims of the hostilities in East Guta."

Also, the readiness of the cease-fire in Afrin was declared by the leadership of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). In this case, the formation reserves the right to retaliate against the pro-Turkish forces as self-defense.

Recall, on Saturday, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution that requires all parties to the conflict in the SAR to “immediately end the clashes” for at least 30 days and allow unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid to the population, as well as evacuation of the sick and wounded.

"We declare our readiness to comply with the UN Security Council resolution on the cessation of hostilities against all enemies, while retaining the right to strike back in the context of legitimate self-defense in the event of any aggression by the Turkish army and its allied groups in Afrin," the SDF said.

The Kurds also called on the rest of the warring factions to follow their example and support the ceasefire. In addition, they pledged to “ensure access by UN delegations to the affected areas of Afrin for the provision of humanitarian and medical assistance and the fixation of destruction”.

      A small addition ...
      UN Secretary General António Guterres and US State Department spokesman Heather Noyert demanded immediate implementation of a UN Security Council resolution on a ceasefire in Syria.
      Well, if the head of the United Nations and the US State Department are demanding an armistice in Syria immediately, then ... Americans have been in dire straits.
      This is a well-developed American algorithm, a procedure: through the "pocket" apparatus of the UN, it is possible to quickly influence a situation that is not in favor. Otherwise, "trained personnel" will quickly be beaten out. Ah, there is not far from failure ...

            With the UN intervention - under the auspices of the United States - American "humanitarian" convoys under the guise of observance of a universal "CEREALIA" more than once with impunity evacuated their assistants from the boilers deadly for them to the SAR in order to use them for the benefit of Washington and further for the same goals.

              Russia was originally the author of the resolution, but there was no agreement from the “partners” at the time. but literally right after the bearded were a little bit off in Ghout (including with the help of our aviation), all the moments to the “partners” became clear and understandable, and the consent immediately appeared

            belay Kurds under the USA, they have all of Syria east of the Euphrates, why should they help?
            If you are talking about the Afrikan Kurds, then everything is already agreed there, the Turks took the zone along the border (and they cannot get into their zone), Iran / Syria / Russia Afrin himself. The problem there is to disarm the local Kurds, and not to arm.
            Isil went over to guerrilla warfare. The USA is not needed, they calmly departed for themselves a zone in Syria east of the Euphrates (with the help of the Kurds) and do not steam.

          The resolution speaks of a ceasefire for the delivery of humanitarian assistance to civilians (everyone understands that this is just a screen to cover the militants, but still). Don’t accept Russia’s resolution, Russian tyrants, aggressors and all in this vein will say. Do you need it?

          why did Russia support this resolution

          There was information from Arab sources that in East Ghouta and Afrika, hundreds of American PMC mercenaries and instructors fell under the hand. If not for this truce, then almost none of them would have gotten out of these boilers. And now, under the guise of evacuating the wounded, they will all leave these areas, unless of course they are fools. That is why the US representatives at the UN began such a psychosis with demands to immediately cease fire from the Syrian army.

          So Russia supported the truce with the armed opposition, and not with terrorist groups, but let alone who of them let themselves prove. They laid down their arms - the opposition. no terrorists. Everything is quite simple and clear.

          The Su-57 began to do what Russia promised: to attack the enclaves of the "rebels" in the eastern part of Guta, an area east of Damascus. Su-57, delivered powerful bombing attacks and destroyed a large number of equipment and manpower of terrorists in eastern Ghouta. But as it turned out later, there were also mercenaries from the American PMC.

          In the same source they reported that there are NATO soldiers present, the death toll is of course going through the roof, we will wait and see, I think the real facts and figures will come later. If this is not a fake, then 57 came in handy)))

        Eastern Ghuta is the first, main stronghold of resistance and unrest prepared by the CIA. To overthrow Assad’s power in 2011. It was from there that the infection spread through the long-suffering land of Syria. Therefore, the United States and squeals, losing its last stronghold. They need to be finished there, finally, and irrevocably. Otherwise, the war will never end.

          I tried to track the source of the news, the links eventually go to the American site: halturnerradioshow, and here is another news from this site (via a translator):

          "The Russian government has surpassed the recent United States strike against Russian mercenaries in Syria, but records from local fighters show how hard they hit the United States.

          “One squadron that lost 200 people ... right away, the other lost 10 people ... and I don’t know about the third squadron, but it also broke apart ... So three squadrons were beaten,” the Russian contract soldier said in the first of three audio recordings received from a source close to the Kremlin, Polygraph.info, a fact-checking website linked to Voice of America.

          “They beat our asses as if we had small pieces of shit,” the man said.

          It is believed that the American strike after a raid on the base of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), on which American troops were located, killed hundreds of Russian military contractors fighting along with pro-Syrian irregular forces. US forces killed the attackers with heavy artillery and air strikes. "

          As if from this news, you can understand how reliable this source is.

      By the way, several villages have already been freed.
      At about 8:30 AM (Damascus time), the Syrian Arab Army (CAA) launched the first phase of the offensive in Eastern Ghouta.

      Under the leadership of the 4th Division, the Syrian Arab army stormed the Al-Nashabiyah area in Eastern Ghouta, capturing several points around the air defense battalion, advancing towards Khazrama and Tal Farzat.

        The offensive in Ghout after the resolution is a direct bombing of the Americans. The bottom line is that according to their classification there is no ISIS, AG or Nusra. It was not necessary to sign the resolution.

    Step forward two back. But in general, some kind of fierce nonsense - why did you need to start operations in Ghut to drag troops there to stop without starting?
    Now, to get out of this trap, we only need to finish off Guta, Yarmouk, Rastan's cauldron and somehow settle the influence zones in the south with the USA / Israel. After that, you can finally hand over the affairs to the Iranians in the zone controlled by the government and crossing to leave from there (we still will not knock out more than 2 branches of the Turkish stream)
    With the same schizophrenic policy, even Guta and I will suffer another two years. The only win is "pacification" before the election.

          The ceasefire concerns only a few factions that are quiet. The Americans wanted to push some more of their own, but Russia refused. And only when the list was changed, an agreement was signed. But at the same time, military operations against groups outside the list are not canceled.

            Do not fantasize. The truce does not apply to ISIS, Nusra and AL and groups associated with them. According to the interpretation of the Americans in Ghout, "democratic opposition." The resolution takes effect after 72 hours. These 72 hours Iran and Syria have.
            Further, to attack Guta means simply to stand up under the charge of genocide and direct bombing of the Americans.

          I have already written (upstream) why Russia agreed with the UN resolution - Russia cannot act as an aggressor (even if it is not so and the Russian Federation is legally in Syria). At the moment, Russia does not have such an influence in the world as the United States (fact), and can not afford (but it seems to have never allowed itself) to go against the whole world for the sake of its ambitions.

    As soon as the "moderate" clamped the "Faberge" in a vice, they immediately began to cry about a truce. And before that, even from a dialogue on reconciliation under the auspices of Russia, the muzzle turned and proudly squandered from the meeting. Apparently, even the Yankees understood that the affairs of their puppets were not ice and gave a pointer to agree to a dialogue.

    Not bad “guys” got settled --- they’ll be squeezed a little, so immediately a ceasefire, humcon convoys (ammunition transportation) ...
    If you want to win, then arrange a ceasefire, but only on your own terms, namely: lay down your arms, surrender and filter there. In Stalingrad and during the storming of Berlin, the Germans were crushed to a complete and unconditional surrender, but there is no other method.

      Syria and Russia are beneficial when several "fronts" are frozen. Then more forces can be thrown to other directions. And this truce concerns only those forces whose list Russia has approved, i.e. The Eastern Ghouta region will continue to “process” non-stop.

          Another thing is that all this Brownian movement, first declared Guta a zone of de-escalation, then they began to bomb, then agreed to a truce makes an absurd impression. The right hand does not know what the left is doing.

            Our and Syrian generals are hindered by the constant interference of third parties to the conflict (now I read how Merkel and Macron and our leader talked fruitfully on the phone (from the mouth of the German Foreign Ministry)). Therefore, the “Brownian movement” still has to be taken into account. I’m sure that in the format of our meetings in Geneva on Syrian issues, we present the West with such an argument that we’ll crush all their democratic militants in squares “A” and “B” like insects (I simplify it). What are the West’s concessions and indulgences? , I definitely don’t know what kind of concessions (Syria doesn’t even concern). But I’m sure that we don’t easily cease fire.

              Well, let's hope. From my point of view, the point is that after the de facto division of Syria into 3 zones of influence and Turkey’s consent to 2 TP branches, it’s necessary to leave Syria (especially against the background of Ukraine’s withdrawal from Minsk and the aggravation in the Donbas that has already begun) .
              We can’t fight with Turkey, let alone the USA / Israel in Syria. So nothing better can be achieved and there is no sense in spending money and life in Syria.
              But we cannot leave Syria until we provide at least our own zone of control for the Assad government. One Iran cannot handle it. And for this we need to free all the suburbs of Damascus. All truces only drag us into Syria more and more.

    This is a well-developed American algorithm, a procedure: through the "pocket" apparatus of the UN, it is possible to quickly influence a situation that is not in favor. Otherwise, "trained personnel" will quickly be beaten out. Ah, there is not far from failure ..

    The question is not in the USA. The question is why Russia supported this resolution.

    In my opinion: ours will also benefit, otherwise it cannot be

    Again on the same rake. Once they agree to a ceasefire, the fire needs to be strengthened and finished off. They just need a break. How fashionable to be on it.

    [quote = shura of sailors] Do they have a choice? Judging from the news, they ironed them well. The children will rest, lick their wounds and again into battle, until the next lyuley and the UN ceasefire
    So it is the Americans who demanded the immediate implementation of the UN resolution on a truce! Like ukroin. As they begin to press their barmaley, they immediately demand a truce! crying

    Well, again they pull out their instructors and advisers. So they have not squealed for a long time. Even on our terms, they decided to stop.
