After Zarif’s visit, Hizballah troops pulled back from Zabadani in first retreat from Syrian war

In our continuing look at the peace negotiations taking place in the Syrian crisis, On 12 AUG 15 NEC-SE posted the article: #2) The beginning of a new era for the oldest region (Syria)

In the article we stated: “NEC-SE believed that before Assad leaves and is “replaced” the Alawites who have been tied to Assad and the Christians will have their own “region.” This is what Russian, U.S. and other key players in Syria may have agreed upon. The Christian “region” will be geographically linked to Lebanon.”

“The link analysis and our understanding of the operational environment show us that these key players have turned over the execution of their policy to Iran’s FM Zarif, who negotiated his country’s nuclear deal with world powers, which is why he is in Damascus and Beirut talking about the possible peace process in Syria.”

Todays article states: “A miles-long convoy of 200 trucks began rolling out of the Hizballah and Syrian positions around the strategic town of Zabadani, 30 km west of Damascus, early Thursday, Aug. 13. Their exit, after failing to break the Syrian rebels’ grip on the town in weeks of fierce fighting, marked the Lebanese Hizballah’s first retreat from a major Syrian battleground….”

“They were the first of the 8,000 Hizballah troops fighting in Syria for three years to quit and return home to Lebanon. The withdrawal followed the instructions given by the visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif after he met Hizballah chief Hassan Nasrallah in Beirut Tuesday and President Bashar Assad in Damascus the next day.”
