According to the Russian Ministry of defence, support of terrorists “Islamic state” (IG banned in Russia) from the US interferes with their final defeat. This was stated by the representative of the defense Ministry Igor Konashenkov, his words RIA Novosti reported.
“The main obstacle to complete the defeat of ISIS in Syria is not a combat capability of terrorists, and the support and flirting with them American colleagues,” he said. Konashenkov noted that on September 28 around 300 jihadists on the way to the city of al-Qaryatayn traveled all the hidden posts of the Syrian army, and this is possible only if there is processed data of aerial reconnaissance.
In addition, he said: over the past few days, militants have carried out several operations in the 50-kilometer zone around the village of al-TANF on the Syrian-Jordanian border. “Same, where the “military mission”, which literally even a cannon shot, the Americans did not admit units of the Syrian troops pursuing the terrorists,” — said the representative of the Ministry of defense.
Nevertheless, any concrete evidence of his words Konashenkov failed.
On 24 September, the Russian defense Ministry said that special forces units of the U.S. armed forces “and ensure smooth promotion” SDS through fighting orders of terrorists. As evidence was given the photograph, which, according to the Ministry, shows the positions of the IG and a few cars Hummer.
Until 2014, when there is ISIS, the U.S. military gave the Iraqi army many armored Hummer. In 2014 during the fighting in Iraq the jihadists were able to capture several thousand units. Cars Hummer was often used IG, for example, as “istishhad cars”: they are trimmed sheets of armor, stuffed with explosives and used to break through fortifications.
