"The United States will allow Iranian military elements and Iranian-backed militias operating in Syria to take up positions within eight kilometers of Israel’s Golan border region according to a report released yesterday by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat news agency.
The report stated that an agreement to allow both actual Iranian forces and Iranian proxies in Syria to establish bases as close as eight kilometers to both the Jordanian and Israeli borders was recently reached between US and Russian diplomats following talks in Jordan.
This report comes at a time when Russia has official downplayed Israeli hysteria over the presence of Iranian forces in Syria, refusing to entertain Netanyahu’s claims that Iran is preparing to attack Israel." Andrew Illingworth in Al Sharq al Awsat
Well, well, pilgrims. ASAA has always had deep Saudi royal family ties so one must question the motive for this publication of work by Mr. Illingworth, whoever he may be. Is this Saudi spite at evidence of subterranean Trump Administration cooperation with Russia over both Iran and Syria?
Bibi must be eating his own guts at the thought. All that and Sarah up to her hips in corruption investigation, being PM just isn't what it used to be,
Can it be that the whisperings between the Trumpian foreign policy gaggle and the Rooshians actually had substance. Can it be?
BTW The last I heard was that the buses were still out in the desert somewhere near Sukhna having been re-routed. CENTCOM still can't work out what to do with them.
And I sure hope that IS keeps throwing troops at the R+6 in SE Raqqa. pl
