(Worthy News) – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is set to regain control of his country’s frontier with Israel in a major victory over rebels who have agreed to surrender in negotiations with Russia, sources on both sides say.
The resumption of Syrian control over areas bordering the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, one of the last remaining rebel strongholds in the country, appears to be part of a larger Russian plan to reinstitute Syrian control in the border region while clearing the area of pro-Iranian militias, as sought repeatedly by Israel and the United States in talks with Moscow this year.
Backed by Russian air power, Assad’s forces have swept through southwestern Syria in the last month in one of the swiftest campaigns of the seven-year civil war, forcing surrender on massively outgunned rebels. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More…) ]
