Military Review

The Pentagon admitted that US aircraft in northern Syria struck at the "allies" fighting ISIS

54
The representative of the Central Command of the US Armed Forces Patrick Rider confirms the information that about two weeks ago, US military aircraft launched an airstrike on armed forces fighting ISIS on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic. Then, as a result of a rocket bombing, four members of the so-called Mutasim Brigade, which operates in the Al-Maar region (Syria), were killed; more than 10 people were injured. Initially, it was reported about the death of at least ten fighters of this brigade, which the Americans themselves refer to the Syrian opposition.


The Pentagon admitted that US aircraft in northern Syria struck at the "allies" fighting ISIS


American newspaper Wall Street Journal writes that the Pentagon conducted an investigation into the incident and recognized the blow to the armed units opposing ISIL as a "tragic mistake." At the same time, the Pentagon was forced to declare that striking the positions of the armed groups opposing the Igilovs was "a failure in joint actions with the Syrian allies in the north of Syria."

It should be noted that earlier in the US military they claimed that in the Al-Maar region, US Air Force planes attacked ISIS positions, destroying the 10 militants and two of their vehicles equipped with heavy machine guns. As soon as it turned out that the detachment had nothing to do with ISIS, and even vice versa - it was fighting with ISIS, the Pentagon immediately “reduced” the number of people killed as a result of the airstrike to 4's.

Against this background, Washington continues to drag out the process of separating the so-called moderate groups from those who do not fulfill the terms of the truce and continue to fight both against the government army and against the civilian population of Syria.

      What kind of "their" they are to the Americans? So, short-term travel companions. Surprised that the Yankees admitted anything at all. For them, a dozen more natives, a dozen less, does not matter. Staff members think in global categories. True, until the matter touches their own precious ass.

        The term "friendly fire" was coined by the Americans during WWII. They also hit their allies. I have never heard in the news that the British, French or Germans opened "friendly fire" on US soldiers. I read that up to 7-10% of the losses of the "Western coalition" in Afghanistan came from the fire of valiant American soldiers !!!

          Such "mistakes" by the US Air Force have long been suspiciously disgusting with regard to all of Washington’s policy on BV and Europe.

          I read historical and analytical books on the geopolitics of Nikolai Starikov * and compare with the current state of affairs in the world. And I come to the conclusion - that the Anglo-Saxons - Great Britain and the USA (and France led by them), who very subtly unleashed the WWII and WWII for the sake of their world domination around the world - and now unleash the 3rd World War (!) - laid down, laid down and they will lay the HECATOMBES of the corpses of soldiers and the population of foreign countries! They always stealthily poured here and there oil into the fire of the war of the opposing parties, if only in the final analysis the gain in the war was only in their own favor.

            If the ultimate goal is the continuation of the war, then such mistakes are logical! It depends on how the conflict is treated, what the final goals the parties pursue and not always the talk of peace from the lips of the Americans coincides with their actions.
            Take at least one small fact with the supply of weapons to the two warring parties and I am 100% sure that they also receive money from both sides

      In any war, this happens ... The fog of war has not yet been canceled, and friendly fire too. This has happened, is happening and will continue to happen in any army. I think that the videoconferencing in Syria also hit the Syrians, they just do not advertise it, since our system is not so open. Therefore, it is better not to gloat once again, otherwise they recently "rejoiced", as in the US military aircraft often fall and agreed - the other day "Russian Knight" died.

        WASHINGTON, June 11. / Corr. TASS Anton Chudakov. The Special Operations Command (CSR) of the US Armed Forces asked the American arms companies to begin the development and production of analogues of Russian small arms. This was reported on Friday by The Washington Post.
        Exercising control over most of America's elite units, CSR is exploring the possibility of American companies developing and producing models of Russian weapons similar to the AK-47, which are ubiquitous in combat areas, "the newspaper notes. According to it, the command has asked companies to develop "Non-standard types of weapons and ammunition." "We are exploring the potential and capabilities of the American industrial industry to create the types of weapons that many of our foreign partners use," CSR spokesman Matt Allen told the newspaper. The special forces command's request included such types of weapons as " the world famous AK-47 assault rifle, Dragunov's sniper rifle, as well as Russian easel and light machine guns and 14,5 mm aircraft machine guns, the newspaper notes.
        Sophisticated maintenance of American weapons
        One of the reasons for this decision, the publication named the problems faced by the fighters of the armed formations in the Middle East, receiving weapons from the United States. "American weapons make these fighters targets for other factions," the article says. Another reason is the "difficult maintenance of American weapons." Allen sees "the right use of taxpayer money" to develop weapons "that American partners need to fight extremists and that they know how to handle and how to repair." "If (these) weapons were produced in the states, the government could control their production and distribution more closely," said former Marine Thomas Gibbons-Neff, the author of the article.
        In July 2014, the US and Canadian authorities imposed sanctions against the Kalashnikov concern, the largest Russian manufacturer of small arms, which included an asset freeze and a ban on transactions. Due to the sanctions, the concern was forced to suspend the supply of products to these countries.

        Eagle, everything is clear and anything can happen. But the stripes have a well-tuned Forward Air Control technique, while regularly hammering allies. It is worth remembering the death of 9 Britons during the first Gulf War. The piquancy is that the situation exactly repeated during the second war in the Gulf, the Britons were not at a loss - escaped with wounds. And the story of the usmc pilot who gouged the wedding in Afghanistan turned out to be officially pumped up by dope, invigorating.
        The striped ones always "substituted" allies, from small to large. God forbid from such allies ...

          Six new destroyers of the British Navy are out of order due to warm water

          In the Persian Gulf, because of too warm water overboard, the latest destroyers of the British Navy "Type 45" were out of action, the Daily Mail reports.

          Six ships failed engines that were not adapted to the climatic conditions of the bay. Due to too warm water, the cooling devices of the engines began to conflict with the electronics and as a result, the power units were completely out of order.

      10 June 2016 /
      Israel launched airstrikes on Syrian territory.


      "Units of the Fourth Mechanized Division were attacked
      Israeli airplanes attacked parts of the Syrian army south of the city of Homs. According to the Syrian website Zaman al-Vasal, citing a source in the country's military leadership, the attacks that occurred last weekend were subjected to part of the Fourth Mechanized Division. Eyewitnesses say they heard loud explosions.

      In the Homs region, government forces are opposed by so-called moderate opposition units.

      This is not the first time Israel has attacked Syrian territory. So, on 7 December 2015 his planes bombarded the city of Dimas, located near Damascus. According to some reports, the target of attacks could be the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, which Russia had previously set up for Syria.

      Tel Aviv’s actions were criticized by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

      “Moscow perceives with deep concern this dangerous development of events, the circumstances of which require clarification. In any case, there is no doubt that the use of force in interstate relations is unacceptable and deserves fundamental condemnation. It is important to prevent additional risks of further destabilization of the already extremely tense situation in Syria and the Middle East region as a whole, ”said Alexander Lukashevich, the then official representative of the Russian diplomatic department.
      The answer of the Israeli authorities was unequivocal.

      “I am not worried about the harsh reaction of the Russian Foreign Ministry,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu."
