Iran Demands U.S. Leave Syria, Damascus Threatens Its Ally Kurds
Iran Demands U.S. Leave Syria, Damascus Threatens Its Ally Kurds

Iran and Syria on Monday demanded the United States withdraw its troops from Syria, and the Damascus government threatened to defeat Washington’s Kurdish allies by force if they did not submit to the return of state authority.

The Iranian and Syrian military chiefs were speaking after a meeting in Damascus that also included their Iraqi counterpart, who gave a political boost to President Bashar al-Assad and Tehran by announcing the Syrian border would soon be reopened.

Their remarks point to the risks of a new escalation in Syria after the defeat of Islamic State, with Assad seeking to retake the two major territories outside his control, and the United States working to curb Iranian influence.

Washington has vowed to contain what it calls Tehran’s “destabilising” role in the region, but the entrenched nature of Iran’s ties with both Damascus and Baghdad were on vivid display on Monday.

Standing alongside his Iraqi and Syrian counterparts on live television, Iran’s armed forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Baqeri said the three countries were “united against terrorism” and coordinating at a high level.

The United States said last month it would keep some forces in Syria, reversing course from an earlier decision to pull them all out once Islamic State is militarily defeated.

It has deployed air power and some ground troops in support of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia that is close to seizing the jihadists’ last enclave in eastern Syria. It also has a military base at Tanf, near the Damascus-Baghdad highway and the Iraq and Syrian frontier.

After Washington in December announced its intention to pull out troops, the Kurdish-led authorities controlling northeast Syria unsuccessfully sought a deal with Damascus to protect their area from a potential Turkish assault.

“The only card remaining in the hands of the Americans and their allies is the SDF, and it will be dealt with through the two methods used by the Syrian state: national reconciliation or the liberation of the areas that they control through force,” Syrian Defence Minister General Ali Abdullah Ayoub said.

Large areas of Syria have been brought back under government control through “reconciliation agreements” that have typically been concluded after the military defeat of rebel forces.

Foreign military forces stationed in Syria without the country’s concession or coordination must leave the Syrian soil immediately, according to the Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, who arrived in Damascus on Sunday.

"Any countries that want to have any forces in Syria, it must be done with the permission and coordination with official government of Syria," said Baqeri, who is set to attend trilateral talks with his Syrian and Iraqi counterparts.

It's not every day you see the head of 3 different countries military's meeting and issuing a joint statement for a foreign power to leave the vicinity.

This is the response to the US continued presence and support of Israel, and IAF's strikes on IRGC & Hezbollah in Syria.

Since they took over the USA after staging a false flag attack on 9-11 Israel has been using the puppet leaders in Congress to start wars so Israel can expand it's borders

Iran is right, go home yanks and stop starting trouble and trying to make out your helping because all you are helping is military contractors and banksters.

Yes, but you wish destruction on Israel, as do the Muslims.

Trump has made it clear that the USA stands with Israel and will NOT leave, so long as Iran remains they threaten the security of Israel.
