ISIS Advances in Aleppo Under Regime Air Force Cover

"We have long seen that the regime avoids Isis lines, in complete contradiction to the regime’s claims to be fighting Isis", the US embassy in Damascus tweeted

A report published by the The Guardian newspaper said: " The US has accused the Syrian government of providing air support to an advance by Islamic State militants against opposition groups north of Aleppo".


The United States Embassy in Damascus posted a tweet late on Monday evening in response to reports of regime air strikes in support of ISIS fighters in Aleppo.


The embassy tweeted: "We have long seen that the regime avoids Isis lines, in complete contradiction to the regime’s claims to be fighting Isis".


The Guardian reported the statements of the military commanders of the opposition factions, including the official spokesperson for the Army of Islam, Islam Alloush, who said yesterday: " Yesterday, the regime bombed Mare’a (which was held by the opposition) exactly at the same time when Isis was attacking us, and this helped them greatly ".


A second opposition leader of the Suqr al-Sham Brigade said: "They have hit us with Grad rockets, artillery, air strikes and everything else since Sunday. They have not hit an Isis position", the Guardian wrote.


Syrian National Coalition President Khaled Khoja said in a press conference yesterday: "Regime air forces work for the benefit of ISIS, as the opposition-held areas are bombed prior to ISIS fighters attacking them. The international coalition led by the United States does not care for the slaughter of Syrians at the hands of ISIS”.
