Pentagon: "We continue the operation in the area of Deir ez-Zora"
According to the statements of the American side, seven oil tankers belonging to the Igilovites were destroyed by three air strikes in the Deir-ez-Zor area. In addition, the militants supply routes were damaged. The Pentagon does not provide any photo and video evidence.
Syria’s state news agency SANA reports a Syrian military plane shot down in the Deir ez-Zor area. Earlier from Syria there were reports that the plane crashed, but without mentioning the causes of the crash. SANA writes that the strike on the plane was struck at the moment when he was carrying out actions against ISIS terrorists.
After striking a strike by the American coalition on the positions of the SAR troops, the ISIL militants launched an offensive. Not less than a thousand terrorists infiltrated into Deir ez-Zor, raising the flag of a terrorist group in one of the districts of the city.
Against this background, the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov, reports that, according to the Coordination Center for the Reconciliation of the Parties in Syria, the Americans do not have any contacts with the so-called "opposition." Although, in the agreements, the United States pledged to control the “moderate opposition” for its compliance with the conditions of the ceasefire regime and separation from terrorist groups.
