Bashar al Assad goes old school in response to Trump's 'animal' insult

"This is the first option".

Earlier, Russian sources pointed to the preparations made by Moscow through several weeks of negotiations with the U.S. and Jordanian sides to develop the features of a comprehensive agreement in the southern region, based on the exit of the Iranian militias, handing over of the rebels' heavy weapons to Russian forces and the extension of the regime control over the border. It is true that the United States has a huge military and naval presence in the Mediterranean and the Gulf, but America's beefed-up presence in Syria, where the real battle for dominance between adversarial powers in the region is taking place, is central.

"The only problem left in Syria is the SDF", Assad said. Although Israel has and will continue to attack Iranian military installations in Syria, the presence and further augmentation of United States forces will, in and of itself give credence to the US' recent demands that Iran leave Syria and stop threatening Israel's existence with impunity.

Assad said that the Douma incident came after the victory of the Syrian troops in Eastern Ghouta, where locals and even Western journalists saying they had not seen any chemical attack.

Fourth, the continuing military presence of the USA and its further enlargement will prevent ISIS from reemerging in Iraq and Syria. Iraq is no exception.

More strikes by USA ally Israel have further raised fears that the devastating seven-year war could still escalate.

It was not the first time that Assad has threatened to attack USA troops, but it was his most explicit expression yet of his determination to rid Syria of American forces.

Responding to U.S. President Donald Trump's description of him as "Animal Assad", the Syrian leader said: "What you say is what you are".

White House trade adviser says China trade dispute was never 'on hold'
According to China this decision announced by the USA contradicts the decisions made between two in a meeting held in Washington . The statement came more than a week after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the trade war was being put " on hold ".

Iran is a close ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and its advisers are embedded with his troops.

He added: "I think there is a very known principle, that what you say is what you are". While Mr Putin has called for foreign forces to leave when the war is over, Iran's foreign legion, the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which some countries classify as a terrorist group, seems bent on staying.

In exchange, Russian Federation reportedly promised to ensure that the Syrian pro-government troops deployed near the Israeli-Syrian border would not include Iranian forces and the Lebanese Hezbollah movement. "The result should be a situation in which, on the Syrian border with Israel will stand by the Syrian army", he said at the global forum "Primakov read" on may 30 in Moscow.

According to Elaph, the two sides agreed at the meeting that Hezbollah and other Shia militias would refrain from taking part in any future conflict between Syria's Assad regime and opposition forces near the Jordan-Syria border.

"Fortunately, it has been avoided, not by the wisdom of the American leadership, but by the wisdom of the Russian leadership".

Assad accused Israel of being in contact with Syrian militants from the start of the seven-year war. Israeli forces have carried out increasingly intense strikes against Iranian targets in Syria in recent weeks and in the process have inflicted serious damage on the Assad regime's air defences.

The Defence Minister of Israel, Avigdor Lieberman is scheduled to meet with the Defence Minister of Russia, Sergei Shoigu on Thursday in Moscow to discuss the steps which need to be taken at the Syrian broader.
