Report: Tension Building Between Russia, Iran Over Demand for Iranian Army to Withdraw From Syrian Areas

A major rift has developed between Russia and Iran in Syria over the former’s demand for the withdrawal of Iranian and allied forces from strategic areas of the war-torn country, a new report says.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, “reliable sources” have revealed that Russia and Turkey have reached an agreement to push for the removal of all Iranian forces from northern Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has already called for a “mutual” withdrawal of “all non-Syrian forces” from southern Syria near the border with Israel, saying, “The result of this work which should continue and is continuing should be a situation when representatives of the Syrian Arab Republic’s army stand at Syria’s border with Israel.”

According to the Observatory, Russia is also demanding the withdrawal of Iran’s proxy terrorist militia Hezbollah from areas near the strategic city of Homs. Hezbollah has thus far refused to comply.
