The United States is currently denying that its Air Force struck the Syrian military in the Deir ez-Zor province on the evening of December 6, but the Syrian government is confirming that a direct assault on the SAA did, in fact, take place.
Given the history of the United States and its 5-year proxy war against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad and the hesitancy of the Syrian government to admit when it has actually sustained damage, it is safe to assume that the claims of the latter can be believed.
Thus, it appears that, on the evening of December 6, four US-led coalition planes launched nine missiles against the SAA’s Saeqa military camp in Deir ez-Zor province.
At least four Syrian soldiers were killed and thirteen others were injured. A sizable amount of ammunition, armored vehicles, military vehicles, and various forms of military equipment were also destroyed in the raid.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has stated that “Syria strongly condemns the act of aggression by the US-led coalition that contradicts the UN Charter on goals and principles. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has sent letters to the UN Secretary General and the UN Security Council.”
Coalition spokesman Col. Steve Warren has denied the accusations, however, saying that “We’ve seen those Syrian reports but we did not conduct any strikes in that part of Deir ez Zor yesterday. So we see no evidence.” He admitted that airstrikes did take place in the region but claimed that they were conducted around 55 km away.
The duplicity of the United States and its “coalition” should be carefully noted, however, since the U.S. has, in the past, claimed that Assad was massacring innocent civilians, engaging in chemical weapons attacks, and indiscriminately barrel bombing civilian areas – all claims that have been thoroughly debunked and proven to have been the handiwork of the Western-backed terrorists themselves. Thus, the track record of the U.S. is dirty to say the least, especially when it comes to events in Syria.
It should also be noted that the province in which the attack occurred is one that is largely controlled by ISIS, thus further weakening the SAA presence in the area and initiating a situation in which ISIS is much more likely to gain full control. In addition, Deir ez-Zor has significant strategic importance since the area also contains a number of oilfields controlled by ISIS and used by the terrorist organization to provide supplemental funding.
Clearly, if the United States and its coalition were interested in destroying ISIS, they would be workingwith Bashar al-Assad and his military not bombing it. It would be attempting to shut down theJarablus corridor.
Instead, the United States and NATO are doing everything in their power to destroy the Syrian government while promoting ISIS as a proxy army that will then be used to destroy Iran and Russia.
There is a dangerous game being played in Syria right now and one that may eventually affect the lives of every human being on the planet. Eventually, the Russians – the only military legally bombing inside Syria – will be forced to respond directly or face terrorism running rampant inside their own borders in the not-so-distant future along with an embattled government and the hovering Anglo-American vultures awaiting the perfect time to swoop in and implement their long-sought-after geopolitical goals. Indeed, Russia has no choice in the matter.
While Russia has repeatedly responded to provocations with a level head, it is apparent that a military response will eventually be elicited. After all, violence seems to be the only language some are able to understand.
Regardless, NATO, GCC, Israel, and the United States are clearly the aggressors in this growing confrontation and the responsibility lies with them to cease and desist in their warmongering provocations before it becomes too late. Much of the world has awakened to this fact. It is high time for the people living within these countries to join with the rest of the world’s population and demand an end to imperialist foreign adventures.
