Syria: Russian Ministry of Defense claims US special ops forces and hardware spotted at Islamic State positions

Source: Russia Today [Russian state media]

"The Russian Ministry of Defense has released aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment north of the town of Deir er-Zor, where ISIS militants are deployed. US Army special units provide free passage for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) through the battle formations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, the ministry said in a statement. … The images released by the Russian Defense Ministry encourage speculation that the US and SDF forces have some sort of 'understanding' with IS terrorists operating in the region, according to Ammar Waqqaf, the director of the Gnosos think tank." [editor's note: Yes, it's Russian state media. No, it doesn't seem noticeably less reliable than the US stenography outfits pretending to be a free press – TLK] (09/25/17)
