After successfully sealing Syria’s coastline against the flow of supplies for rebels and terrorists, along with the closure of the Turkish-Syrian border, there has been substantial progress in recent days and brought a small calm to the country.
Meanwhile Russia has deployed weapons, spare parts, and commando trainers for their strategic naval base in the Mediterranean port of Tartus.
During the Sunday weekend, Syrian security forces stated that another spectacular move might be on the way for the UN observer mission (UNSMIS) since the UNSMIS headquarters might be moving to Hama.
Analysts point out that his move might allude to direct UN blames regarding the Syrian government in the past. Other parties believe it’s a contradiction to the third phrase of the “Presidential Statement” of the UN Security Council regarding the “six-point peace plan” of UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan.
The phrase states a “strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of Syria,” however the move made by the UN could be seen as a growing official UN solidarity with the insurgency. In the meantime the insurgency accuses constantly the observer mission of siding with the Syrian government. (AV)
