Despite the humanitarian pause announced by 27 in February, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation claims of constant rocket and artillery bombardment by the militants. This makes it difficult for civilians to leave the combat zones. Actually, this is the calculation of the terrorists - they intend to hide behind civilians as a human shield.
Along with real battles, an information attack began. Terrorist groups have accused the “Assad regime” of using weapons mass destruction. These statements are aimed not only at stopping the advance of government forces, but also at provoking the United States to the actions of a military nature.
Earlier, the United States Permanent Representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, said that her country reserves the right to military response to the actions of the Syrian authorities in Eastern Gute.
