Russian defence ministry doubles down, again accuses U.S. of supporting ISIS

Russian defence ministry doubles down, again accuses U.S. of supporting ISIS | 04 Oct 2017 | Two week after Russia released a set of satellite photos from Syria, which allegedly showed US special ops located in immediate proximity to ISIS [I-CIA-SIS] positions, the Russian defence ministry doubled down on Wednesday and again accused the United States of supporting Islamic State jihadists, enabling them to mount counter-offensive attacks in eastern Syria. "The main thing preventing the final defeat of ISIS in Syria is not the terrorists' military capability but support and pandering to them by American colleagues," Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement. Quoted by AFP, he said recent attacks on Syrian government forces were all made "from a 50-kilometre zone around At-Tanf on the Syrian-Jordan border" where the US-led coalition is operating a garrison. As we first noted at the end of September, in recent weeks Moscow has repeatedly accused the US of hindering the offensive in the east of the country against IS jihadists mounted by Syrian government forces with the support of Russian airstrikes and special forces on the ground.
