In the Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighting against President Bashar al-Assad, consider the Russian Federation as the invader, and do not believe she can not be the guarantor of anything in the country, the General said PAS Ahmad Rahal in an interview with Newsader.
«I think the ceasefire agreement is a test of intentions. The Kremlin wants to make sure that the United States will talk about all outstanding issues: missile defence, Ukraine, Crimea, sanctions. For its part, the Washington examines Russia’s intentions, though, and considering each problem separately rather than all at once. In addition, the U.S. looking South, Syria from the point of view of Israel and Jordan, which need to remove Iran from its borders. This is the so-called «truce in the South». Emphasize: we consider Russia as an interventionist and believe that it can not be the guarantor of anything in Syria», – he said.
According to Rahal, the rebels suspect that the US and Russia agreed to exchange: «Iran will be allowed to control Kalamun ridge on the border with Lebanon in return for a truce in the South-West. We do not agree. Iran must completely withdraw from Syria.»
The General added that Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to prove that «disposes of all the forces on earth.»
«If the forces of Iran, asaditov and heslov will not observe the truce, it will be a big blow to the Kremlin to the United States, which Putin said that there is pragmatism in relations – pragmatism, which Moscow understands as concessions from the American side. That is why Russia will try to pressure forces of Iran and asaditov to the ceasefire broke down. However, I’m sure «silent mode» will fail, because the situation is the opposite: that Putin is on Iran and asaditov, not proasadovskaya coalition – Putin», – he said.
The military conflict in Syria lasts since 2011. The fighting involved government forces, the opposition, radical Islamists, Kurds and other forces. A significant part of the state controlled by ISIS militants.
7 July 2017 at the meeting of the President of the United States Donald trump and the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin approved a Memorandum on the establishment of a zone of de-escalation in the South-West of Syria. According to the document, the ceasefire needs to act on the Syrian 12.00 time on July 9. According to the head of the Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, at first safety around the area of de-escalation will be provided with the use of forces and means of the Russian military police, in coordination with Jordan and the United States.
Based in the UK monitoring organization «the Syrian Observatory for human rights» reported that the first seven hours of the truce passed without violations. On the morning of 10 July, it was noted that «silence regime» is violated.
