Syria terrorists 'operate near U.S. forces,' Russian military wants explanations

Militants from US-controlled areas have seized two convoys with medicines and food aimed for two Syrian settlements, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.

October 10, 2017 (EIRNS)-The Russian Foreign Ministry announced that over 91% of Syria has been liberated from Islamic State (IS) forces, RT reported yesterday.

The respite in bombing had allowed militants to cross the border and reinforce Isis' front line against the advance of the Syrian army, Moscow said.

Russian Federation has raised the alarm over some 300 Daesh terrorists on pickup trucks infiltrating through a US-controlled zone in Syria's al-Tanf.

"The actions of the Pentagon and the coalition demand an explanation".

The accusations come amid prolonged tension unraveling as the two countries support the opposing sides fighting Islamic State in the province of Deir el-Zor - while Moscow backs Syrian government forces, Washington supports Syrian Democratic Forces spearheaded by Kurdish People's Protection Units militia. "Is their change of tack a desire to complicate as much as they can the Syrian army's operation?", Mr Konashenkov asked.

"The continuing arrival of terrorists from Iraq raises serious questions about the anti-terrorist objectives of the United States air force and the so-called 'international coalition'".

Over the past month, Moscow has repeatedly accused the U.S. of hindering the Russian-backed Syrian army offensive in the east of the country.

The SDF is now clashing with ISIS fighters north of Deir el-Zor city, where jihadists are besieged by SDF forces from northern and western side, and Syrian Army and its allies from southern and eastern side.

He recalled that the ministry had already drawn "the American counterparts" attention to the fact that the base illegally deployed by them to southern Syria is turning into a "black hole".

Russian Federation also claimed this week that displaced civilians in Rukban camp in the southern At Tanf deconfliction zone were "human shields" against Isis for the USA military base there.

The Pentagon dismissed these allegations, pointing out that data about the conducted airstrikes is available to everyone.
