Australia’s Defense Department have admitted that its jets have participated in an airstrike against Syrian Army positions near Deir Ezzor that left tens dead.

Australia has offered its condolences to the victims of the soldiers families and has announced it will fully cooperate in the review of the incident.

“Australian aircraft were among a number of international aircraft taking part in this Coalition operation,” the Defence Department said in a statement.

“Australia would never intentionally target a known Syrian military unit or actively support Daesh (ISIS). Defence offers its condolences to the families of any Syrian personnel killed or wounded in this incident.”

So blatant was the airstrike against the Syrian Army that even anti-Assad mainstream media in Australia have suggested that the airstrikes purposefully attacked their positions, supporting Russia’s claim.

Australia is one of many countries participating in the illegal US-led Coalition airstrikes in Syria that are without coordination with Damascus.

Dead are dead, but will the US and Australia pay damages to the family and the Syrian government. There are families who lost their father, brother and son.

Australian government not only did embarrass themselves by attacking an army not at war with, but did it during a cease fire while ISIS gained ground in that area.

They were probably flying American aircraft. – the British have done that in the past. Now Australia should withdraw from the US anti-ISIS coalition because it’s obviously not fit for purpose.

That appears to be true as the Australian AF has no F-16s in its fleet. However, the falsehood assumes the statement that F-16s were actually used is true. Either way, the US coalition is lying through its teeth.

There are reports that the attack was conducted with jammers on which could though not necessarily indicate a growler was involved.

If you’re going to post about the Australian Airforce in this context … then you should make sure the picture is in context. The picture ISN’t the RAAF.

Not saying it didn’t happen, but what I AM saying if you’re going to publish stuff like this then make sure your case is iron tight … because right now I see the headlines, see the picture and throw your article into the virtual rubbish bin.
