"Since the beginning of the crisis, Iran has supported Syria in the war against terrorism backed and financed regionally and internationally", he said.
While US President Donald Trump has floated the idea of withdrawing American troops from Syria, multiple officials from the Pentagon and the State Department have said the US troops are going nowhere, and that territories liberated from IS by SDF will not be returned to the Syrian government unless Assad leaves power.
The Kurdish militia group SDF that is backed by the United States holds the largest area of Syrian territory outside government control, but it has tried to avoid direct clashes with the government during the multisided war.

At least one base belonging to Hamas and four for Islamic Jihad, an allied group, were struck, Gazan security sources said. 28 mortars were fired from from the Gaza Strip earlier in the day, injuring at least five Israelis.
"Do not believe any statements on an agreement about the south of Syria unless the USA forces withdraw from al-Tanf area", he said.
"The Americans should leave somehow". The strikes were in retaliation for the Assad regime's use of the weapons against anti-government forces near the rebel stronghold of Aleppo.

More than 2,000 U.S. troops are now in Syria fighting alongside the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the northeast as well as in the enclave of At-Tanf in the south along the Jordanian border.
Israel has been pushing Russian Federation on this issue for a while, and had conditioned not interfering in Syria's offensive against rebels in southern Syria on getting Iran, along with Shi'ite militias, out of the border region.
