The US is seeking explanations from Russia about the airstrike allegedly inflicted in Syria on the opposition unit

77
The US embassy demanded an explanation from Moscow about the strike inflicted on the formation of the Syrian opposition by the plane of the VKS, reports RIA News Post by spokesman for the embassy William Stevens




Earlier, American publications, citing an unnamed official, reported that the Russian aviation attacked the positions of the Syrian militias in the area of ​​the Jordanian border. This allegedly saw the pilots of the American FA-18, located in the same zone. They tried to contact the Russians, but received no answer.

“Yesterday, a Russian plane conducted a series of air strikes against the forces of the Islamic State grouping in the (border) Al-Tanf area in southern Syria,” said Stevens.

Then, he said, he attacked the position of the Syrian opposition squad. It "included the militia, which is supported by the United States."

“Russian aircraft was active in this region of Syria for a while. There were no forces of the Syrian authorities or Russian ground forces, ”the diplomat noted.

“We are seeking explanations from Russia on what happened and why, and also guarantees that this will not happen again. By stopping hostilities, the United States wants to achieve a way to de-escalate (conflict), protect the population, support moderate opposition, and achieve concrete steps toward a political transition of power in Syria. Unfortunately, these efforts are repeatedly stopped by the regime (Assad) and its supporters who are not fulfilling their international obligations ",
Curled Stevens.

“The recent actions of Russia cause serious concern regarding Russian intentions. The United States participated in working with Russia intensively and professionally in order to achieve conflict-free attitude towards anti-Igilov actions and in order to find ways to de-escalate violence and restore a complete cessation of hostilities in the country, ”he said.

“Russian airstrikes against Syrian groups that are involved in the fight against IS, as was clearly the case here, undermine the potential of collective efforts to fight IS and call into question Russia's stated intentions to fight terrorism in Syria,” concluded Stevens.

            It seems to me that these demands to "report" on the destruction of the "correct" terrorists are a continuation of the SaSha idea, on the establishment of a "no-fly zone" over Syria negative
            Now they’re inflating that we’re not bombing those, but tomorrow (remember my word), a howl will rise about the unprofessionalism of the Russians and the attempt to force Syria out of the sky negative
            It is clear that this "coalition" is exceptional and not very, nothing shines. But the stench and slop, there will be an immeasurable amount negative

          He also noted that the Russian Aerospace Forces acted within the framework of agreed procedures, warning the US-led coalition in advance about choosing ground targets in Syria. At the same time, during the strike, the American side did not provide the coordinates of the regions where the opposition units controlled by it were operating, which did not allow taking measures to clarify the actions of Russian aviation.

    Since February, the Americans have not been able to give us data on the so-called "correct" opposition, brazenly delaying the delivery of strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces. They probably think that we can play with one goal without any consequences. They struck a blow and did the right thing, which means there were militants, and not "the opposition fighting against ISIS."

    They probably violated the terms of the ceasefire and did not report their deployment wink So they were bombed, the pilots had no time to look at the IS or not the IS. bully
    In general, the whole war in Syria is doomed to the fact that we will never agree with the Americans, because they want to eliminate it, and we are quite the opposite.

      Yes! Probably, most likely from the PMC, because if there were military personnel, it would have been howling before Mars and Jupiter. The Yankees are painful to the deaths of marines and special forces. PMCs are another matter, as if they did not fall under the law on the armed forces.

    So what now to scream about our VKS strikes against the "opposition" ?! Not indicated - keep the splash with all the proletarian love. And even better - get out of the area where our VKS was striking, then nothing will come over the head for sure.

    Well, bring it down! This is a persistent invitation to blame the economy of Shoigu.

    Quite an expected argument - "We are fighting with ISIS here, and you are interfering with us", the next one I suppose will be "Step aside and do not interfere"

    But we tried to find out who did not need to be bombed. Didn’t receive a response ..... Bear with me .....

    Apparently, they covered a group of CIA officers or disguised Pentagonists. Hence the screams. Now we will have to pay pensions to the families of the "fighters of the invisible front" who signed up to overthrow Assad, and this is very expensive for the American government.

    The amers seem to end their patience and they launched a large-scale offensive on all fronts.
    They act aggressively, even extremely.
    Something will happen, based on recent statements, the State Department’s petitions to Obama and others like them.
    Now our main thing is to hold on and hold on, T.K. apparently the pressure will increase.
    I am not enthusiastic about the internal politics of our state, but in foreign geo and politics I support, although not completely.
    It seems the moment of truth is coming.

    Everything is wrong, flying incorrectly, intercepting incorrectly, and also bombing incorrectly.
    I remembered a joke, a conversation between two friends
    - Yesterday, my husband and I were fishing, you imagine, I did everything wrong, planted the worm incorrectly, threw it wrong, hooked it, it was also wrong, my husband was tired of saying it to me, in the end it turned out that I caught more fish than he did belay

      Shchya as a milkmaid will begin to clamp the offshore grandmothers of our kremlelezhelyah, so howling will immediately rise universal.
      Americans still milk us economically, and if they throw us something, then only in the form of a handout, like a bone to a dog.

    I don’t give a damn about what the USA cackles. Destroy all illegal armed groups. Moderates go with balls to the demonstration. The rest of the evil one, invented SSHA.

    They did not give us an explanation about the bombing of Yugoslavia, and why should we explain something to them all the more we are there at the request of the Syrian government? And in general, what are they doing in the airspace of Syria?

    Oh! We still have to report, it turns out. We are waiting for a report from the Americans, about the presence of their military in Syria!

    The Americans themselves very often staged the so-called "friendly fire", and the moderate opposition often appears with ISIL

    Why on earth should we explain to the Americans. Our Aerospace Forces in Syria were invited by the President of Syria, and the Americans "help" it is not clear to whom and on what basis.
