Pentagon: Idlib is the "nest of terrorism", and the Russians are to blame

Idlib province in Syria has really become a nest for many terrorist organizations, the militants of which were brought there by the Russian military from several regions, reports RIA News Statement by Assistant Pentagon Chief Storey Karem at a congressional hearing.

One of the congressmen asked Karem what explains the presence in Idlib of the order of 20-30 thousands of terrorists, including al-Qaeda fighters (banned in the Russian Federation), which the US military must destroy. But instead, government representatives oppose any operation in Idlib. And not only object, but also threaten those who want to spend it.

Indeed, there is no doubt that Idlib has become a “wasp nest of terrorism”, but, unfortunately, this was possible because of the territorial control policies conducted by the authorities of the SAR and Russia - they conducted, using de-escalation zones, negotiations on the ground and In order to clean specific areas, militants of all stripes who refused to lay down were taken to Idlib. weapon. Thus, the province has become a "trash" for the most notorious terrorists, said Karem.

He also noted that the threat posed by ISIS (IG, the organization is banned in the Russian Federation) will continue even after the physical destruction of the “caliphate”.

According to the Assistant Minister of Defense, under the onslaught of the enemy, the terrorists began to move to the underground position, organizing a covert rebel network.

Recall, Idlib is the last region, not controlled by Damascus. Recently, the presidents of Russia and Turkey agreed to create a demilitarized zone along the contact line of armed opposition and government troops in the province by mid-October, and the heads of military departments of the two countries signed a memorandum on stabilizing the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone. Iran, in turn, noted that the agreement of the Russian Federation and Turkey helped to prevent a large-scale war in Idlib.

      That's right, if Russia had not intervened, then Idlib and the hedgehog with them would have become the ruling elite and gained the official status of US allies. And so were the terrorists, and remained them.

    Thanks to whom did ISIS arise? What about al Qaeda?

    this became possible due to the territorial control policies of the SAR and Russia
    This is no longer just "from a sore head to a healthy one" - this is ... .... and further on the Russian list. The Americans not only do not see the edges, but in all seriousness they carry outright nonsense, believing that this nonsense will be supported by others. But if some of the congressmen are already asking such a question (the presence of terrorists in Idlib), then all the same, something begins to change in the heads of American politicians. Although this wall can only be broken through with the complete collapse of the United States, which is unlikely today.

      Let me doubt such an assumption ... Rather, this congressman did not go far from his colleague, outraged by the coup in Limpopo, or, as an option, wanted an accusation against the Russian Federation to be voiced. Weakly believe that something can change there in their heads.

    So what? It was better to raze proud land, as the Americans did in Racca? And most interestingly, the Americans are somehow not eager to participate in the restoration of Syria.
    Idlib is the last region not controlled by Damascus.

    I may not understand a little: And Deir iz Zor? And what about Tanf? What about US bases? And the Kurds?

    The very hotbed of terrorists is known where, the difference is that they don't cut their heads with their own hands. Therefore, everyone from the "Idlib gadyushnik" urgently needs to do "suitcase, ferry, London"

      And they were taken out absolutely right - there they are better at blaming them .. And the fact that someone whines about it there ... They would have whined if they started to utilize these ghouls locally.

    And what's wrong with that if you can cover all races with "strategists or calibers" ..
    But together with Turkey they decided to give a chance to many to change their minds .. Time has gone!
    The main thing is that Israel and the United States do not interfere and the provocation is not bloody (white helmets run rats again there)
