A couple of days ago, the Iranian forces and their linked militias withdrew from the Hadir town, in the southern countryside of Aleppo, in what it seemed to be a response to repeated calls by the Russian military police to evacuate the area. However, it is believed that the withdrawal falls under the implementation of the agreements of the de-escalation areas agreed upon by Russia, Turkey, and Iran.
A private source indicated to Aleppo24 that the Russian forces, along with Assad’s forces, have been deployed to Hadir, where they shut down all roads, exits and entrances of the town, arresting everyone who opposed this move. The withdrawing Iranian forces had insisted on securing the situation in Kufriya and Fuoa before leaving the aforesaid town. Russian officers, in turn, confirmed to them that the Shiite-majority towns were part of the de-escalation agreements.
In other news, Russian forces arrested five Iranian militiamen at the entrance to the town of Hader after attempting to break into it. Our correspondent said that this is the second time, in a few days, the Russians arrest Iranian militiamen.
