In September 24, 2017, Russian Ministry of Defence published satellite images showing that United States military vehicles, were stationed north of the town of Deir ez-Zor.
I have translated the statement of Russian Ministry of Defence in English, from same page:
Aerial photography of the areas of the ISIS disposition north of the city of Deyr-ez-Zor
Special Forces units of the US Armed Forces provide unimpeded progress through the “Islamic state” military orders controlled by the US to the units of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDS).
Without encountering the resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDS units advance along the left bank of the Euphrates River in the direction of the city of Deir ez Zor.
With the help of aerial photographs that were made during the period from September 8 to 12, 2017, a large number of American armored cars of the Hammer type, which are in service with US special forces, were recorded in the areas of the deployment of the ISIS armed formations.
The photographs clearly show that the US special purpose units are located in strong points(stronghold), previously equipped with ISIS fighters.
However, there are no traces of assault, clashes with the terrorists of ISIS or craters from the attacks of the international coalition aircraft around these objects.
Despite the fact that the strong points of the US Armed Forces are located in the areas of the current deployment of the ISIS troops, they do not even have signs of organization of security combat.
This can only mean that all US servicemen who are there feel themselves in areas held by terrorists in complete safety.
Let’s see what are these aerial photographs,
First one is Russian from the Russian Ministry of Defence web page,
Below it is the same picture, but I have translated Russian terms into English. (Yes, I’ve made my public service to all mankind. 🙂 Also, there is not another translated in English of these pictures, except my translate on whole web. You can use these freely whenever you want.
As far as I understood from the picture number 2, (so upper one),
There is a road where goes to Jisr al-Shabbabi(it should be another province at Syria, I guess); and the Hummer type vehicles, armored vehicles, trucks which are used by “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) units that are controled by US army and ISIS vehicles met on the road. According to propaganda of US government, these SDF units should have been fought against ISIS. But, what is that? They are passing next to ISIS vehicles but there are no fire. (Maybe they didn’t only pass by; SDF stopped and chat with ISIS about the weather conditions, who knows. :))
Second one is again Russian from the Russian Ministry of Defence web page,
And same picture number 3 with my translate:
As far as I have understood from picture number 3, there is a protective area and ISIS vehicles and armored vehicles used by SDF are in the same area. I am wondering, if this is a protective area, they are all hiding together from whom? Maybe they were playing hide-and-seek, who knows?
In parallel with these, Chief Spokesman for the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, Igor Konashenkov asked the most logical question can be asked yesterday at Moscow.
‘Who exactly is the US fighting in Syria?’
And he added:
“There are absolutely no signs of fighting on the images of the ISIS strongholds occupied by the US Special Forces and the Kurdish formations. There are no funnels from the rupture of artillery or air ammunition, moreover, as you can see, there is no even basic protection, not to mention defence,”.
Is there anyone who knows that US army and the local units supported by US government are fighting against whom in Syria?
Of course I do have strong opinions backed-up with facts about this, and many time I have shared them in here.
Well, do you have? 😉
