The defense Ministry commented on the accusations of the USA due to the fact that the Russian aircraft struck blow to the SDF in the area of Deir ez-Zor, resulting in the SDF 6 300X.
Russian combat aircraft in Syria launched surgical strikes, the U.S. was informed in advance about the limits of military operations in the city of Deir ez-Zor, said on Sunday the official representative of the defense Ministry major-General Igor Konashenkov. He commented on the statement by the Pentagon that Russian shock suffered by the Syrian opposition, said “Interfax”.
“The Russian VKS inflict pinpoint strikes only explored and confirmed through multiple channels targets controlled by ISIS (an organization banned in Russia) the districts,” — said Konashenkov.
“In the first place are destroyed the firing points of terrorists from which leads a massive fire at Syrian troops,” — said the official representative of the defense Ministry.
Konashenkov said that in the last few days on the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates Russian control and intelligence there were no clashes with ISIL terrorists armed representatives of any third force.
PS. What is important about this statement? In fact, the defense Ministry said that the US is well aware that there is a designated area of interest from Russia in the area of Deir ez-Zor, where the Russian air force strikes on ISIS (while the strikes on the other side of the Euphrates as a hint that this area is also included in the area of operation) and if there is someone else who is not fighting ISIS (there is an obvious hint of when the Americans and their proxy ISIS), and doing something different (such as contacts with ISIS),the problems of Indians of the Sheriff not very concerned. A kind of response for At-TANF, where the United States bombed an Iranian “proxy.”
It is noteworthy that this story happened exactly a year after the US “accidentally” bombed the positions of the SAA near the airbase of Deir ez-Zor, which led to the deterioration of the operational situation in the area of the enclave. But over the years the situation has changed.
PS2. It is still not clear what is meant by foreign Minister when he talked about the bridgehead on the other Bank of the Euphrates. Well, except for the most banal explanation associated with the fact that there is a marking of territory, which hold for SAA.
In other respects, the operation is continuing quite successfully to develop – liberated towns of Ayyash and Jafri, peeled 2 quarter in the city, there is a small progress on the road of Deir ez-Zor-Maadan.
