WASHINGTON – Russia soon could return some 3,000 troops to Syria, Middle East experts tell Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, suggesting the compromise cease-fire between Moscow and Washington has failed along with the Geneva talks.
The negotiations in Geneva currently are suspended as a result of renewed fighting by jihadi groups outside Aleppo, Syria’s largest city.
Moscow had intervened militarily in the civil war in September 2015 following a request from the Syrian government. But on March 14, 2016, Russia ordered the withdrawal of most of its forces there.
