The Syrian army announced on Sunday that planes of the so-called “international coalition” targeted a Syrian warplane over Rasafa in the southern Raqqa countryside while it was carrying out an operation against the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization.
It said in a statement that the flagrant aggression undoubtedly affirms the United States' real stance in support of terrorism, which aims to affect the capabilities of the Syrian army and its allies — the only forces that practice the legitimate right to combat terrorism in Syria.
“The attack highlights coordination between the U.S. and ISIS, and it reveals the evil intentions of the U.S. in administrating terrorism and investing in it to continue the U.S.-Zionist project in the region,” the statement added.
It affirmed that such aggressions would not affect the Syrian army in its determination to continue the fight against ISIS and the Nusra Front terrorist organizations and to restore security and stability to all Syrian territories.
