So there’s supposed to be a ceasefire? Then why is the U.S. bombing Syrian army positions?
September 17, 2016
Syrian army positions were attacked today by four U.S. warplanes (two F-16 fighter jets and two A-10 ground attack aircraft).
The U.S. warplanes flew west from the Iraqi border and carried out four strikes on Syrian army units who were encircled by ISIS near Deir Ezzor airport.
62 Syrian soldiers were killed and at least 100 other soldiers were injured in the strike.
The four air strikes by U.S. warplanes allowed ISIS to immediately launch an offensive -- within minutes. ISIS was waiting on the outskirts.
The US attack on the Syrian Army enabled ISIS to capture a strategic area of the Thardah Mountains that were originally under the control of the Syrian Army.
Deir Ezzor province consists of many Christian villages. Assisting ISIS to gain more territory will only promote more massacres of Christians.
