Iran ousted from Syria following safe zones deal

Each of the three nations would be responsible for their own zone and, as a condition, all forces from the Iranian Regime, the pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hezbollah will have to leave.

The American military will have two security zones; one covering the area between the Euphrates River and the Iraqi border. Russia will be responsible for all the area between the Euphrates and the Mediterranean coast.

This will, in part, resurrect the deal between Barack Obama and Putin in late 2015, for the division of Syria. Except for the involvement of Turkey, who will now take control of the area along the Syria-Turkey border, extending up to Al-Bab, the Syrian town where the Turkish military has been fighting ISIS for three months straight.

The second US military zone will be adjacent to adjacent to Syria’s borders with Israel and Jordan. 

DEBKAfile  notes: “Israelis will breathe a sigh of relief over the removal of the threat of Iranian and Hezbollah forces being deployed along their northern border with Syria.”
