Syria Condemns US Strikes on Army Positions in Deir-ez-Zor

Foreign Ministry says aggression is "incontrovertible evidence" that the United States and its allies support ISIS and other armed terrorist groups

US aggression on Syrian army positions on the outskirts of Deir-ez-Zor Airport is considered a serious and blatant attack on Syria and its military, Syria’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

According to the ministry, five US aircrafts launched an air strike on the Syrian army positions near Al-Tharda Mountain, Dier-ez-Zor. The attack began at 5 pm on Saturday, September 15, and lasted an hour.

The ministry said that “this cowardly US aggression is incontrovertible evidence that the United States and its allies support ISIS and other armed terrorist groups. Moreover, it exposes the US false allegations of fighting terrorism and restoring security and peace to the Syrian territory.”

It noted that the strike resulted in dozens of casualties among the Syrian armed forces which, the ministry said, are defending tens of thousands of civilians who still suffer under the siege imposed by the Islamic State on Deir-ez-Zor city.
