Assad denies presence of Iranian forces in Syria

Russia May Move Iran's Militants From Israel's Border in Unprecedented Deal on Syria, Reports Claim
Russian ally Assad initially embraced President Donald Trump's election, but USA allegations that the Syrian leader was behind toxic gas attacks and subsequent US airstrikes have split the two.
Though he did not mention Iran specifically, Lavrov said that only the Syrian regime should field military forces in the country's southern border areas, Reutersreported citing the state-operated RIA news agency. We can't exactly ask Israel to jump into this battle openly.
His regime had "started now opening doors for negotiations" with the SDF but accused the U.S. and "their puppets in Europe" as "hindering the political process". "Somehow they're going to leave".
The southwest is of concern to the United States, which a year ago brokered a "de-escalation" deal with Jordan and President Bashar al-Assad's Russian allies, which has largely contained the war near the frontier with Israel.
Bashar al Assad has reacted to being called "Animal Assad" by US President Donald Trump with a phrase usually heard in school playgrounds.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war through a network of activists on the ground, says at least 68 Iranian and pro-Iranian forces have been killed in Israeli strikes since April. In the process, the Kurds have assumed de facto control over a vast area of mostly desert terrain amounting to almost a third of Syrian territory.
With military backing from Russian Federation and Iran, he has reclaimed most of the territory lost to rebels in the wake of the popular uprising that swept the country in 2011 and quickly descended into all-out civil war.
If we abandon the Kurds we will look like very unreliable allies and will be effectively stabbing them in the back after they were one of our most dependable and fierce partners in the war against ISIS.
Daraa, located near the Jordanian border, was the birthplace of the Syrian crisis with the first protests erupting from that area in 2011.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned his government would not allow Iran to maintain a military presence anywhere inside Syria.
"The Iranian militia is the spearhead of the offensive of the Assad forces and its role has been clear for five years, which prevented the Syrians from their freedom and topple the regime".
Assad said Iran's presence in Syria was limited to officers assisting the army.
In the past weeks, Israel has struck what it said were Iranian targets in Syria, raising fears of a large-scale confrontation. Its turn, Iran, has yet again reiterated that it has no bases in the Arab Republic, while exclusively its military advisors are present in the country in order to help the Syrian government fight terrorism. Syria's air defences were much stronger than before, thanks to Russian Federation, he added.
