Moscow: US Strike on Syrian Army IS 'Assistance to Islamic State'

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the US-led coalition air strikes on the Syrian Army positions near the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor borders between “gross negligence” and “direct assistance” to ISIS terrorists.

“The coalition pilots’ actions – if they, as we hope, were not ordered by Washington – were on the edge between gross negligence and direct assistance to Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] terrorists,” the ministry said in a statement.

According to the Russian ministry, the US-led coalition air strike that killed 62 Syrian soldiers at Deir Ezzor on Saturday was “inevitable given the stubborn refusal by the US to cooperate with Russia in combatting IS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other affiliated terrorist groups.”

We recall an ISIS offensive started shortly after Syrian Army positions were attacked by two F-16 fighter jets and two A-10 ground attack aircraft.
