Kurds Hand over Key Passageway to Syrian Army in Deir Ezzur
TEHRAN (FNA)- The predominately Kurdish US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) handed over al-Salehiyeh passageway in Southeastern Deir Ezzur to the Syrian army, Syria's state-run media reported on Tuesday.

The Arabic-language al-Watan daily reported that the SDF embarked on handing over al-Salehiyeh passageway near the Euphrates River in Southeastern Deir Ezzur to the Syrian Army.

The passageway is located between the SDF-held '7km Square' and the small town of al-Salehiyeh that is under the army's control, al-Watan said, adding that the Syrian army and Russian Military Police will run the passageway.

The passageway will be open to ease return of civilians to their regions on the Western bank of Euphrates River that is under the army's control.

On Sunday, the army dispatched a large number of equipped forces to Southeastern Deir Ezzur, preparing for purging the border region with Iraq of ISIL terrorists.

The army's convoy, including hundreds of fresh forces along with heavy military equipment, was sent to Albu Kamal Desert in Southeastern Deir Ezzur near the border with Iraq.

Local sources said that the army intends to kick off a major operation near the border with Iraq to end ISIL's presence in the region.

US-Backed SDF Goes on Alert as Raqqa Residents Voice Support for Syrian Army
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) went on a full alert in Raqqa as the city residents have started showing their support for Damascus Army, including painting graffiti.

"The SDF forces are on full alert in Raqqa city in security terms as the Kurdish forces have arrested a large number of civilians," local sources said.

They said that the wave of arrests came as unidentified groups painted graffiti on the walls of al-Badou district in Raqqa city and welcomed the presence of the Syrian Army in the city.

Media activists in Raqqa city also pointed to the fury of Raqqa residents over SDF's measures, including arresting a large number of people on different pretexts and death of a civilian under torture by SDF in Raqqa city.

The news comes as the SDF has detained several civilians on charges of imaging the SDF movements.

In a relevant development on Monday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) opened fire at protesting civilians in Raqqa city on Monday, injuring several people and arresting a number of others.

The SDF militias engaged in fighting with protestors in al-Mashlab neighborhood in Raqqa city, opening fire at people.

A number of civilians were injured in the clashes.

The SDF further arrested over twenty civilians and kept gunmen on alert to suppress further demonstration.

On Sunday, the SDF stormed the farms near the village of Abu Qabih in Western Raqqa and forced the owners and their family members to leave their properties.

Local sources said that the SDF turned the farms into bases and command posts.

The sources said that the SDF occupied tens of farms, lands and houses of the people under different pretexts in the region.

Other sources reported that the SDF again arrested a number of young men in the town of Tal Abyadh under a forced recruitment plan.

Syrian Kurds Stress Cooperation with Army in Fighting Terrorism
TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian Kurds underlined preparedness to cooperate with the army in fighting terrorism as talks between them and Damascus are underway to deliver control of the occupied regions to the government.

Riad Darar, the Arab co-chair of the Syrian Democratic Council (the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)’s political wing), was quoted as saying by the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel on Saturday that the SDF will cooperate with the Syrian army in any military operations against the terrorists.

He added that the ultimatum by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has persuaded the SDF to go for an agreement with the Damascus government.

Syrian Democratic Council declared in a statement that it has reached an agreement with the Syrian government on the formation of committees to continue negotiations until the end of war.

A preliminary agreement was made between the US-backed SDF and the Syrian government on transferring control of different parts of the country to Damascus and withdrawal of the US forces from Syria, media reports said on Saturday.

The Arabic-language al-Quds al-Arabi newspaper quoted informed Syrian sources as saying that the SDF has agreed to give control of Raqqa city and a large number of districts in Hasaka city, including those near the government and security centers, to the Syrian government.

Based on the report, the meetings were held in the presence of the Kurds close to the Syrian government, adding that they have told the SDF officials that regaining control of the occupied areas is possible but Damascus prefers to retake them through political ways and negotiations.

It added that the executive council of the SDF has also informed Damascus that the US intends to withdraw its forces and evacuate its military bases from the Syrian territories.

A delegation of the SDF was sent to Damascus to hold talks on the future of regions occupied by the Kurds in Northern Syria.

Relevant reports said on Friday that an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militants in Syria sent a delegation to the Syrian capital for talks with Syrian government officials.

Kurdish Delegation in Damascus for Peace Talks
TEHRAN (FNA)- An alliance of Kurdish and Arab militants in Syria has sent a delegation to the Syrian capital for talks with Syrian government officials.

The so-called Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), which is linked to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) − a US-backed coalition of mainly Kurdish militants holding a grip on northeastern Syria − sent the delegation to Damascus, according to SDC co-chair Riad Darar, press tv reported.

The delegation, led by executive head of SDC Ilham Ahmed, was expected to discuss matters of service provision in the areas controlled by the Kurdish group, but “the talks might widen to political and security matters," Darar said on Friday.

"This is certainly the first visit that happened," he added.

The militants are allied with the United States and French troops deployed to Syria under the pretext of fighting ISIL.

Chief among their demands is having an autonomous region within the Syrian borders. Darar, however, said that the outcome of the meetings is not yet clear, and that he did not know which Syrian officials will be meeting with the Kurdish delegation.

He also did not clarify how long the delegation will stay in Damascus.

Their Kurdish militant group, once called by President Bashar al-Assad as “traitors” to the nation, announced last month that it was ready for “unconditional” peace talks with the government amid the Syrian army’s major gains against the foreign-backed terrorist groups.

Assad said back in May that he was “opening doors” for negotiations with the SDF, who have apparently become wary of their unpredictable “ally”, the United States.

In an interview with Russia's RT television network, Assad said, “we started now opening doors for negotiations, because the majority of them are Syrians, supposedly they like their country, they don't like to be puppets to any foreigners. If not, we’re going to resort... to liberating those areas by force.”

According to Syrian media, the Kurds had expressed readiness to hand over control of the Eastern Euphrates to the government after Washington withheld its support for the Kurdish militants in the northern Syrian cities of Manbij and Afrin.

The presence of the Kurdish militants in the area have been a source of tension between the US and Turkey. Last month, the two sides reached a deal about the withdrawal of the Kurds from Manbij.

The Kurds have stressed that that they do not seek independence, but say they want a political deal to safeguard an autonomous administration which is now under their control in the north.

Kurds Likely to Return Control of Manbij to Syrian Army
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army is in talks with the Kurds to retake control of the strategic town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo, media reports said on Thursday.

Media sources affiliated to the dissidents in Syria reported that representatives of the Syrian government and a number of officials of the Manbij military council, affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), have held a meeting on the future of the town.

They added that the two sides conferred on the process to deliver control of a security region in Manbij as well as al-Shahba (Tishrin) dam South-East of the town to the Syrian army forces, noting that it can pave the ground for the army's full control over Manbij.

Meantime, earlier reports said that the US and Turkey had agreed on a roadmap to expel the Kurds from Manbij.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted informed sources as saying last Thursday that meetings between the Syrian government and the Kurdish forces have recently increased but they have not yet produced remarkable results.

They added that the Kurds have opted for delivering control of the Eastern Euphrates after Washington withheld its support for the Kurdish militias in Manbij and Afrin.

Meantime, Turkey is preparing for an agreement with the Americans in Eastern Euphrates after its recent elections, which would give the Kurds a hard time if made.

The sources told the Arab paper that the possibility has increased for an agreement between the Syrian government and the Kurds at present as Americans are trying to hinder any such agreement.

Media: Kurdish Forces in Hasaka Deliver Control of Key Region to Damascus
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army has reached an agreement with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to retake control of a key neighborhood in Hasaka, media reports said on Thursday.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported that implementation of an agreement between the Syrian government and the SDF in Hasaka province in Northeastern Syria has started with the transfer of the control of occupied regions to the army.

It quoted dissident sources as saying that the SDF has surrendered control of al-Nashweh district in Hasaka city to the Syrian army, adding that the army has set up checkpoints near the region.

The SDF is now required to bring down the flags and slogans of Kurdish parties in the city in line with implementation of the agreement with the army.

Also, during the talks underway between the two sides in the town of al-Shadadi in Southern Hasaka, the SDF has proposed to deliver control of the bordering areas with Turkey to the Syrian government.

Al-Watan had also reported on Sunday that the Kurdish militias had agreed to deliver control of oil facilities in Hasaka province to the Damascus government as part of an overall agreement to surrender their regions to the army.

It quoted some opposition sources as disclosing that several government delegations have had meetings with commanders of the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) that control the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River, adding that some Syrian military officers, and governor generals of Raqqa and Hasaka provinces had attended the meetings.

In the meantime, some Kurdish-affiliated sources disclosed that a new agreement has been endorsed by the YPG and the Syrian government based on which the Kurds will hand over oil facilities to Damascus to the sole exporter of Syria's crude oil.

The daily further said that a team of repair and maintenance experts have left Damascus for the town of Tabaqa in Western Raqqa and entered regions that are under the control of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to have meeting with the managing committee of Tabaqa Dam presided by Mohammad Oso.

In the meantime, local sources reported that the Kurdish units have taken photos of their commander Abdullah Ocalan and the group's flags down from Qanat al-Sowis street in Hasaka city.
