Syrian authorities say they have evidence the recent US-led airstrike against Syrian troops was a deliberate strike to advance ISIS forces in Deir Al-Zour.
According to a report from Russian news agency, Sputnik, Syrian intelligence possesses an audio recording of a conversation that took place between the United States military and ISIS fighters shortly before the recent U.S. airstrikes on Syrian government positions in Deir el-Zour.
Likewise, the speaker of the People’s Council of Syria stated as much on Monday. “The Syrian Army intercepted a conversation between the Americans and Daesh before the air raid on Deir ez-Zor,” said Hadiya Khalaf Abbas, Speaker of the People’s Council of Syria, as quoted by Al Mayadeen.
These statements appear to suggest that the conversation recorded by the Syrian government will definitively show coordination between the U.S. and ISIS against the Syrian military. Indeed, during her visit to Iran, after the coalition airstrikes on Syrian government troops, the head of the Syrian Parliament stated that the U.S. military actually directed the ISIS attack on the Syrian army, which saw the terrorist organization temporarily gain territory surrounding Deir el-Zour.
If the claims of the Syrian officials quoted above are true, then we strongly encourage Syria to release the audio recordings for the world to hear. That the United States has been responsible for the creation, support, direction, arming, and facilitation of ISIS has long been known in informed circles. However, an audio recording of cooperation between the U.S. and ISIS would effectively drive the last nail in the coffin of American credibility and any remaining semblance of honesty and logic in the “war on terror” — which is, in reality, nothing but a “war of terror” against the world’s people.
If there was ever any doubt that the United States was supporting and protecting the most feared terrorist organization in the world, that doubt is now erased as a result of the U.S. strike on Syrian military forces in Deir al-Zour on September 17.
The attack took place as a battle between the Syrian military and ISIS forces was raging in Deir al-Zour, when the United States swooped in with air strikes against Syrian military forces, killing “dozens” of Syrian soldiers and allowing ISIS forces to advance. Some outlets put the death toll as high as 80 while others suggest 62 soldiers were killed.
The United States claims that it did not knowingly strike the Syrian military and that it “confused” the SAA with ISIS fighters. However — illegal violations of Syrian national sovereignty aside — claims that the United States could not decipher SAA forces from ISIS forces is hardly plausible, since the former is easily identified by the fact that it is in battle with the latter. Either the United States is incredibly incompetent or it intentionally targeted the Syrian military in order to act as the ISIS Air Force, such as it has since the terror group’s creation.
This time, the U.S. bombing allowed ISIS to take control of the Thardeh Mountains.
“The U.S.’ airstrikes on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions allowed the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) to capture the strategic Thardeh Mountains that were originally under government control.
“According to local activists, the U.S. attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s positions with phosphorous bombs, killing several soldiers and paving the way for the Islamic State to capture the whole area.
“The attack was conducted by 4 U.S. warplanes that were flying west from the Iraqi border.
“This is the second time this year that the U.S. Air Force has attacked the Syrian Arab Army in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.”
Although the Syrian military via the al-Qassem forces (Special Forces) have managed to recapture a number of areas seized by ISIS (by virtue of the U.S. intervention), the U.S. bombing has all but ended the fragile “ceasefire” plan (terrorists never once abided by any obligation of the agreement) and prompted both a war of words between Russian and American diplomats and an emergency United Nations Security Council Meeting.
