  2. America: Keep 200 of our troops in Syria near the Iraqi border Editorial date: 2019/2/22 8:42 • 160 times read The White House said on Thursday that the United States would leave a "small peacekeeping group" of 200 US troops in Syria for a while after its withdrawal, after President Donald Trump retracted the full withdrawal of troops. In December, Trump ordered the withdrawal of 2,000 US troops from Syria, saying they had defeated a preacher there, although Syrian-backed Syrian fighters were still fighting their final battle against the organization's latest positions. But Trump is under pressure from several advisers to adjust his policy to ensure the protection of Kurdish forces that have strengthened the fight against Daqash, which may now be threatened by Turkey and counter Iranian influence in Syria. "A small peacekeeping group of about 200 will remain in Syria for a while," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a brief statement. The decision was announced after Trump spoke by telephone to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. A statement to the White House said that as far as Syria was concerned, the two leaders agreed to "continue coordination on a possible safe area." A senior administration official said the preparation of the Trump decision had been underway for some time. It was unclear how long the 200-strong force would remain in the area or when it would be deployed. Keeping a small group of US troops in Syria would pave the way for European allies to pledge hundreds of troops to help build and monitor a possible safe area in northeastern Syria. The leader of the US-backed Syrian opposition forces called for an international force of between 1,000 and 1,500 troops to remain in place to help fight the insurgency and hoped the United States would suspend its plans for a full withdrawal. The decision to retain the Trump peacekeeping force could help overcome criticism that he ordered a surprise withdrawal from Syria that could lead to a resurgence of his power. "This is a clear signal to our allies and coalition members that we will still exist to some degree," said the senior administration official. So far, European allies have been reluctant to contribute troops unless they have a firm commitment that Washington remains committed to the region. Belgian Defense Minister Didier Renders told reporters on Thursday ahead of a meeting with US Defense Secretary Patrick Chanahan that the issue of keeping troops in Syria in the future would be discussed with US officials. Turkey wants to create a safe, logistical-backed zone from its allies and says it must be cleared of the Kurdish-backed Kurdish People's Protection Units, which Ankara considers a terrorist organization. The White House did not specify where the troops would be stationed. In addition to northeastern Syria, officials spoke of the importance of keeping troops at the strategic base of the border with Iraq and Jordan. A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the initial plan was to keep troops in northeastern Syria and Tanf. Planning was still under way and changes could be made, he said. The al-Tanf base was established when Da'ash fighters controlled eastern Syria bordering Iraq, but since the terrorists were removed, al-Qaeda has become part of the US strategy to contain Iran's military expansion. US officials told Reuters that when Shanaan was in Munich last week, he held a meeting on Syria with a small group of defense ministers. They said they spoke of the need for some sort of security arrangement in northeastern Syria after the departure of the United States. Shanahan will meet his Turkish counterpart on Friday. US Senator Lindsey Graham issued a statement praising Trump's decision to keep a small US force in Syria as part of an international stabilization force, saying the president had taken the right military advice that would help avoid problems the United States faced in Iraq.
  3. Iran begins major maneuvers and test submarines launched for the first time Editorial date: 2019/2/22 14:38 • 72 times read Iran has launched a large-scale naval exercise at the entrance to the Gulf, which will include the first cruise missile launch from submarines, at a time of increasing tension with the United States. The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) said that more than 100 ships will participate in the three-day military exercises in a wide area stretching from the Strait of Hormuz to the Indian Ocean. "These exercises will include addressing a number of threats, testing weapons and evaluating the readiness of equipment and personnel," Admiral Hussein Khanzadi, commander of the navy, said in remarks broadcast on state television. "Missiles will be launched from submarines, in addition to the launch of helicopters and aircraft from the surface of the destroyer (Sahand)." According to official media, Iran will test its new submarine (Fath) homemade and armed with cruise missiles. The submarine was launched last week. Iranian officials have already threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil route, in response to any US hostile move, including efforts to stop Iranian oil exports through sanctions. US President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran in May and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran. Tehran has expanded its missile program, especially its ballistic missiles. Iran launched the destroyer Sahand in December, which officials say has characteristics that allow it to avoid radar monitoring. The US ship John Stennis entered the Gulf in December, ending a long absence for US aircraft carriers in the strategic waterway. Iran has reviewed new surface-to-surface cruise missiles with a range of 1,300 km earlier this month during celebrations marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

  7. On the brink of defeat with his last pocket in Syria 04:36 - 21/02/2019 BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Syria's demilitarized forces are expected to complete the evacuation of civilians from the last pocket to organize a terrorist crackdown in eastern Syria, paving the way for US-backed forces to stamp out the last remaining terrorist rule that once spanned large parts of the country, From Syria and Iraq. Iraqi sources said Thursday that the Iraqi army had received 150 Iraqi and foreign sympathizers from the Syrian Democratic Forces, which are surrounding the last pocket of the terrorist organization, near the Iraqi border, under an agreement that includes a total of 502 fighters. The Baguoz village on the Iraqi border is the last spot under the control of a terrorist organization in the Euphrates river valley, which has become the last bastion of criminal organization in Iraq and Syria after a series of defeats in 2017. Although the fall of the Baguz is a milestone in the campaign against the terrorist organization and the broader conflict in Syria, criminal organization remains a major security threat. Gangs are increasingly turning to terrorists and continue to control territory in a remote, densely populated area west of the Euphrates River, an area controlled by the Syrian government. Mustafa Bali, director of the Media Center of the Syrian Democratic Forces, told Reuters the troops would attack as soon as the evacuation of civilians from Baguz was completed, a process expected to end on Thursday. Bali did not say what time it would take to eliminate the fighters of an organization calling on the remaining terrorists or giving a new assessment of their numbers. Previous estimates of Syria's democratic forces indicate that the number of fighters holed up inside the Baguz is several hundred and most of them are foreigners. The US-led coalition said on Wednesday the "most dangerous" terrorists were still in Baguoz. Syria's democracy forces said more than 2,000 civilians had left the enclave on Wednesday. More than 20,000 civilians have left Baguoz in the days before the start of its latest operation to control the enclave this month, she said. On Wednesday, Bali said Syria's Democratic forces were not sure whether some of the criminal group's fighters had left the Baguz with civilians. The Syrian Democratic Forces and Coalition Forces record the names of all persons who leave and interrogate civilians. Many of those who left the enclave in Iraqi civilian convoys said some had crossed from Iraq to Syria as Iraqi government forces made gains at the expense of a terrorist organization on the other side of the border. Two Iraqi military sources told Reuters that handing over the fighters to the terrorist on Thursday was the first stage in several stages. An army colonel based on the Syrian border said most of the fighters were Iraqi, but there were few foreigners. Ahmad al-Mahlawi, a resident of Qaim, said some families of criminals had also been transferred. "In the early morning this morning I entered ten trucks loaded with fighters urging the terrorist and their families coming from the Syrian territory were handed over by the Syrian democratic forces to the Iraqi army." "Most of them were Iraqis, the convoy was under heavy security and went to the operations command of the island and the desert," he said.
