Pro-Assad Commander: Syrian Army Ready for Southern Battle

An Iranian Air Force jet prepares for takeoff on a Syrian base

Trump has also blamed his predecessor for supporting Syrian rebels trying to overthrow Assad after a 2011 uprising, saying in 2015 that "Assad may be bad, but we have absolutely no idea who these people are that we're arming".

Israel has lengthy stated it might not enable Iran to achieve a everlasting army foothold in Syria and has seen Iran's ally Russian Federation as the important thing to stopping it.

Israeli Prime, Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said Monday he will press German and French leaders next week to support his position that Iran should have no military presence in neighbouring Syria.

The Syrian army had completed preparations and was fully prepared to attack the rebel-held city of Deraa on Tuesday, as Russian Federation announced plans to meet with the United States and Jordan.

Government forces recently dropped leaflets on rebel-held areas in Daraa, warning of an imminent offensive and urging anti-Assad fighters to lay down their arms.

"The regime in Tehran is the main destabilizing party in the Middle East, and the campaign against its aggression is not over and we are still at its peak", he added.

"The fact that Russia allows Israel a little bit of freedom to act to side-line Iran, Israel is doing it for the Russians", he said.

It was not the first time that Assad has threatened to attack US troops, but it was his most explicit expression yet of his determination to rid Syria of American forces.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that only the Syrian military should be on the country's southern border.

Iran-backed Shi'ite militias, often spearheaded by Lebanon's Hezbollah, have played a critical role fighting in support of Assad.

In the interview, Assad said US and Russian forces would have come in direct conflict long ago in Syria if it were not for Russia's prudence and judgment.

On Sunday, Israel's Haaretz newspaper wrote that Moscow may convince Iran to pull its troops back 60 kilometers from Syria's border with Israel.

According to Elaph - the negotiations were organised by Iran in response to the recent stream of casualties inflicted by Israel on its troops in Syria.

(Reportedly, a deal is in place to keep them there until 2092.) The Iranians just seem to enjoy causing any trouble they can stir up for the United States and Israel. We can't exactly ask Israel to jump into this battle openly.

Sources said the two national security advisers will make changes to the agreement that reflect the "new reality" of the United States no longer being party to the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran. "Somehow, they are going to leave".

Assad said that his generation had been forced to live under the threat of Israeli attack since they were children, but that it was "nonsense" to say that they were afraid.
