Syria: Heading Towards a Cease-Fire?

On February 21st, the US Secretary of State announced a “provisional agreement in principle” with Russia for a cease-fire in Syria.

On the next day, the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, confirmed the agreement and said that it will be enforced on February 27th.

However, Russia has announced that it will not stop its air strikes against the terrorists’ locations during the cease fire. “ISIS, Al-Nusra Front, and other organizations that are considered terrorists by the UN Security Council will not be affected by the cease-fire. The strikes against terrorists will continue” said the Russian head of state.

The Russian intervention in Syria was unforeseen by the United States and its allies and it disrupted their Zionist plans in the region including their determination to take down President Bashar al-Assad.

Since January 2014, Russia and the United States have called for a cease-fire prior to the Geneva II Conference. However, the United States and its allies have imposed a precondition for negotiations, the urgent departure of Bashar al Assad, who according to Russia and the head of Syrian diplomacy was needed to stop terrorism in Syria. Now both parties responsible for the provisional agreement acknowledge that the fall of Syria should be avoided because it would plunge the entire region, including the Zionist entity-into chaos.

The cease fire will stop hostilities and allow free movement of humanitarian convoys to the civilian population which has been suffering and under attack by terrorists since March 2011 through a war imposed by the West to protect the Zionist entity of Israel and sever the Axis of Resistance which is seen as the first security threat to Tel Aviv!

The temporary agreement will also legitimize the Russian air strikes against all terrorist organizations, including those of Ahrar al-Sham (an Islamic Movement of The Free Men of Syria) and Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) which is funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey, acting in agreement with the Syrian pseudo-opposition, but have publicly stated their links with terrorist groups cited by the UN security Council. The dreams of these pseudo-opponents who saw themselves at the head of the country are gone!

The Anti-Zionist Party hopes that the cease fire will be an opportunity for all sides of the Syrian society to gather around the negotiation table – excluding those who are commanded by foreign powers. The only solution to the Syrian crisis is a political solution.
