CNN: Russia is ready to strike at the territory with the American base of Al-Tanf
The American television channel CNN, named by the President of the United States as a “fake television channel,” released a material in which it claims that Russia allegedly twice in the last week notified the United States of its readiness to strike on that part of the Syrian territory where there are “dozens of US military” Tass
At the same time, the channel refers to its own sources in the Pentagon, which claim that the greatest concern of Washington is the security of American troops at the base of Et-Tanf in the province of Homs. This is due to the statement of Moscow that "militants of terrorist groups are under the protection of the US military in this territory." At the same time, the Pentagon fears that the Russian side may apply Aviation or their warships "for launching a missile strike against those whom Moscow calls militants."
CNN claims that on this occasion, Washington allegedly "warned Moscow about the danger of challenging the US military presence," as this could lead to confrontation in the event of an unintended defeat of the US military "during an inaccurate Russian missile strike." In connection with this, the channel reports, the US military "recommends Moscow to stay away from Al-Tanfa", since "the United States is ready for retaliatory actions."
