Russian Defense Ministry responded to the US accusations of an airstrike on the Syrian opposition

The Russian command in advance designated to the forces of the western coalition the borders of the military operation in Deir ez-Zor, reports RIA News statement by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Major-General Igor Konashenkov.





With the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces of Russia, the Syrian government forces have been successfully fighting for the destruction of the last ISIL bridgehead (IG, a grouping banned in the Russian Federation) in the Deir ez-Zor area. In order to avoid unnecessary escalation, the command of the Russian group of troops in Syria, through the existing communication channel, in advance brought to the American partners the frontiers of the military operation in Deir ez-Zor,
said the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

According to him, “in the framework of this operation, the manpower, armored vehicles and objects of terrorists are destroyed both on the west and on the east bank of the Euphrates.” Russian VKS "deliver pinpoint strikes only on reconnoitered and confirmed through several channels" targets in areas controlled by terrorists.

First of all, the firing points of the terrorists are destroyed, of which massive fire is being conducted on the Syrian troops. Over the past few days, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, Russian means of control and reconnaissance have not revealed a single clash of ISIL terrorists with armed representatives of any "third force",
added the general.

Therefore, Konashenkov emphasized how “oppositionists or military advisers of the countries of the international coalition” could “penetrate into the military forces of the IG in the eastern part of Deir-ez-Zor”, only the representatives of the international coalition themselves can answer.

We will remind, earlier in the Pentagon stated that several fighters of the US-backed detachments of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDS) suffered during an air strike of the Russian ASC. According to the ministry, "September 16 Russian forces hit a target east of the Euphrates River in Syria near Deir ez-Zor, because of which the forces of the coalition partners suffered."

    The command of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) informed the United States in advance about the military operation in Syria Deir ez-Zor against the militants of the Islamic State terrorist organization (IS, banned in Russia). This is stated in a statement by the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov. “In order to avoid unnecessary escalation, the command of the Russian group of forces in Syria via the existing communication channel brought the boundaries of the military operation in Deir ez-Zore to the American partners in advance. Over the past few days, on the eastern coast of the Euphrates, Russian control and intelligence have not revealed a single clash of IS terrorists with armed representatives of any third force, ”he said.
    Thus, Mr. Konoshenkov commented on US accusations that the Russian air forces during the operation in Deir ez-Zor hit the Syrian opposition from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) group, which has been supported by the Americans since the beginning of the civil war. “How oppositionists or military advisers of the countries of the international coalition could get into the combat formation of the IS in the eastern part of Deir ez-Zor, only representatives of the international coalition themselves can answer,” the representative of the Ministry of Defense said.

    Too bad Jane psaki no! She would say - '' we cannot say what they did there - this is classified information! But they were needed there ... ''

    In the West, the following expression is popular: "Whoever reads Zakharova does not laugh at Psaki."
    Do you want to refute?

    Why disprove it? Western delirium? I do not like talking heads, but Zakharova even understands what she’s talking about, I think many will agree with this! And the expressions in the West ... Tolerant to foolish, iridescent to pigs, they saw a woman who also says the right thing! Their brains did not boil from this? So the opinion of the West for us is not an indicator of intelligence, but just the opposite!
