Turkey, Russia and Iran, the countries of oppression and aggression on our people in Syria, and the guardians of the talks between the criminal regime and some factions of the revolution, have agreed in a memorandum signed on Thursday 4/5/2017, at the conclusion of the Fourth Astana Conference, to set up four “non-conflict zones” with the establishment of “safe zones” along the borders of these areas, where “checkpoints” will be activated to ensure free movement of unarmed civilians, humanitarian aid access and the continuation of economic activities. These areas to be designated within two weeks. As for Al-Qaeda and ISIS, they will continue fighting them both inside and outside the non-conflict zones and the safe areas. The agreement will be for six months as a first phase and units from guarantor countries will manage those areas.
We in Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah of Syria make it clear to our steadfast people in Ash-Sham that the consequences of this dangerous agreement include the following:
1- New strife, row-division and fighting amongst the rebels starting with inbetween those factions opposing the agreement and those who approve it, and then between those who satisfy the West and those who enrage it.
2- Transforming the revolutionary factions into guards of the regime’s regions, as happened in Kafria and Foua, to suppress any serious attempt to make a sincere move.
3- Relieving the regime and freeing it to restore other areas.
4- Paving the way for the idea of disarming the sincere in the liberated areas, in order to create demilitarized areas.
5- Isolating those who go against the international will and reject the American solution in a small area to hit and eliminate them.
6- Legitimizing the continuation of the Russian bombardment, and the bombing of the American-led coalition of the areas they do not control, and the killing of Muslims without differentiation between them under the pretext of bombing terrorists.
7- Entry of Turkish and Arab forces into the liberated areas under the pretext of separating the regime from the opposition to directly supervise the associated factions, and restructuring and rehabilitating them for integration with the army of the regime at a follow-up phase.
We in Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah of Syria are sounding the alarm of the evil of what is coming to the revolution of Ash-Sham, and remind the sincere ones that history has proven that every internationalization of Muslim issues means surrendering them to their enemies and thus losing them.
Allah (swt) said:
((وَلَا تَرْكَنُوا إِلَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا فَتَمَسَّكُمُ النَّارُ وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنْصَرُونَ))
“And do not incline toward those who do wrong, lest you be touched by the Fire, and you would not have other than Allah any protectors; then you would not be helped.” [Hud: 133].
The “Safe Areas” agreement is a new abyss in which the world’s masters of deception want to make us fall into it, in order to eliminate the revolution before it reaches its goal ... Do we remain spectators until our enemies instil daggers in our hearts or shall we move quickly and efficiently to prevent implementing those terms of this dangerous agreement, and strike back hard on the hands of those toying with Muslims blood. And then adopt a clear political project emanating from the doctrine of ‘La Ilaha Ila Allah, Muhammadun Rasulullah’, this project which is presented to you by Hizb ut Tahrir, and take Hizb ut Tahrir as a political leadership leading the ship to safety?
Allah (swt) said:
((إِنَّمَا وَلِيُّكُمُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُمْ رَاكِعُونَ* وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا فَإِنَّ حِزْبَ اللَّهِ هُمُ الْغَالِبُونَ))
“Your ally is none but Allah and [therefore] His Messenger and those who have believed - those who establish prayer and give zakah, and they bow [in worship]. * And whoever is an ally of Allah and His Messenger and those who have believed - indeed, the party of Allah - they will be the predominant.” [Al-Ma’idah: 55-56].
