Free Syrian army admits the possibility of cooperation with the Russian Federation in the fight against IS

Brigadier General of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) Hossam al-Awak said that he admits the possibility of cooperation with the Russian Federation in the fight against the extremist group "Islamic State".




“Our position differs from Russia politically, but we trust it. I believe that our cooperation in the fight against IS will be fruitful. (...) The SSA is now suffering from disunity in the ranks of the command, its members have different views on the action plan of the Free Army. We are against the regime, against the IS and against the Dzhebhat an-Nusra. However, if an agreement is reached with the Russian Federation, it will not remain at the level of the initiative, and a new command will be formed, ”RIA says "News".

As part of the Free Syrian Army, there are many armed groups and squads that participate in hostilities with the aim of overthrowing the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The backbone of the SSA were the former military of the government army of Syria, who went over to the side of the opposition. Formally, the SSA is headed by the Supreme Military Council, which is supported by the opposition National Syrian Coalition of Syria and the General Staff, but in reality the groups practically do not coordinate military operations with them.

Russia joined the fight against the “Islamic State” in Syria on September 30 after Bashar Assad’s request. To date, more than a thousand combat missions of the Russian Air Force have been carried out, during which hundreds of militants, dozens of command posts, warehouses and other military infrastructure have been destroyed. In addition, ships of the Caspian conducted a successful launch of 26 cruise missiles against targets in Syria flotilla.

    They are terrorists everywhere and any - terrorists. In no case should you think that these jackals are "good" and these are "bad". They are all the same. Inhuman ready to kill for the loot and the owner's shout.

        And who is the SSA? Barmalei, in my opinion, all look alike, and there is only one place for them all, in the ground, that the SSA and the igil differ little from each other.

          I’m just wondering, how many real Syrians are in the SSA ?! Ten percent then at least gain ?!

          They will cooperate with us ...! You will cooperate with the devils in Hell, scumbags are not finished!

          "Arm the right Syrian rebel". smile

          By the way, SSA is the far right in the upper row.

          The workers of their SSA want to have time to jump on the bandwagon of the settlement train in Syria. And, perhaps, some of them will come in handy for this matter.

            - No, one quote
            We are against the regime, against IS and against Jabhat al-Nusra.
            - i.e. against most Syrians.

            They want their own regime. Perhaps, at the place of Assad, I suggested that the local militants deserve an amnesty for an attempted armed coup in the fight against external enemies.

            And all sorts of "brigadier generals" - puppet henchmen - have minimal terms without persecuting families, instead of a tower.

            Well, hired hacking - to wash off in a quiet way or a lamppost, definitely ...

            Something like that.

          Even the Pentagon has denied reports of Russian Air Force strikes against allied rebels in Syria. “As for the forces that the Ministry of Defense trains and supplies in Syria, they were not attacked,” the Pentagon chief answered to a question from Senator John McCain about the actions of Russian aviation.

      I don’t agree with you ... the Khokhlyad authorities out there are called Donbass troops as terrorists, it depends and who they call ...
      and as for the SSA, these are gangs united by one idea, but unlike the rest they consist of military personnel from the Syrian army, that is, some kind of brain is present, and our heads have been corrected a bit, so the idea is not bad in general, maybe that will work out !!!

      I suggest, nevertheless, not to chop the shoulder, but to recall the Afghan experience. With the same Ahmad Shah Masood, ours regularly concluded peace agreements and cooperated quite normally.

      True, the next period of cooperation also regularly ended with the next Panjshir operation. smile

      The only reason the cutthroats agreed to cooperate with Russia is that after the defeat of the “notorious igil” (and they are the same, that is, having escaped through Turkey, the militants will re-enter the country through Israel but have already “repainted” under the guise of the SSA ) when there will be a referendum in the country on the political regime and the system (who knows, maybe Syria will be divided into parts) constitute an opposition. But in any case, Washington’s ears will stick behind them.

    We have to do with it. There is a president in their country, even if they agree with him. We just help him keep the country (for moderate concessions - to keep the base there free of charge and for an unlimited time, or whatever trifles). If they are fighting against Assad - that means terrorists, if they repented - join the ranks of the Syrian army - and you will immediately receive an amnesty.

    To everyone who calls here to send them far and destroy them without talking, I suggest recalling Kadyrov.

    This brigadier general is fussing because the GDP in Valdai said that he had discussed this issue with Bashar Assad (meaning Assad’s attitude if Russia would attract the opposition in the fight against ISIS and Assad replied positively). And in the East, who did not have time, he was late. That's why the first bell rang.
    And of course, the thick circumstance is that DRYs will not bomb. And another thick circumstance is that Russia will be in the allies, which, as it were, would not like sworn friends to gain more and more political weight. And finally - saving face - like we didn’t follow Bashar al-Assad’s, he invited the GDP, but how to refuse such a respected person ?!

    Eh, the East is a delicate matter ...

    Actually, the comrade addressed the wrong address. This is for him to Assad, he now decides who is his friend.
    I recall that a certain Nestor Makhno also believed that cooperation with the Red Army in the fight against whites and "for revolution" would also be fruitful. However, he soon disappeared, along with his "free army" and other "greens". I hope that this brigadier general did not study the history of the civil war in Russia, in which, as is known, as in all civil wars, there was only one winner.

    East is a delicate matter! And FAB is the right thing !!!! Do the SSA want to fight? Let them fight, but they will always be able to bomb them ... The main thing is that after the war they would lay down their arms and go on to peaceful life. They have a choice between the world and the FAB!
