The war in Syria did not stop but the fighting decreased as arrangements are underway to end it. Promises to achieve a “peaceful” settlement have spread optimism to the point that several governments sent back their ambassadors to Damascus and the opposition was declared dead. “Victorious” parties, i.e. Assad’s government, Iran and Syria, began to act arrogantly by ignoring the Geneva conference as they think the Sochi negotiations are the only means to finalize Syria’s fate as per their wishes. Iran increased its military presence and its armament of Hezbollah. It seems this is all an attempt to finalize the last days in its favor and to impose its presence after the war.
As long as the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and its foreign militias are stationing in Syria, we will witness a new round of the Syrian war. It will be like quicksand that’s centered against Iranian forces.Abdulrahman al-Rashed
