BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS) last pockets of resistance are located inside areas controlled by the U.S.
forces, the Russian Ministry of Defense Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov said this morning.

“As for the current situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, we recommend the Pentagon chief to examine the map showing the situation in this country. All remaining pockets of resistance of Daesh terrorists in Syria are located only in areas controlled by the United States,” Konashenkov said.

The spokesman noted that the Russian Defense Ministry was bewildered by “verbal manipulations” of Mattis regarding the situation in Syria, stressing that the expansion of the Daesh terror group to Syria had become possible due to “criminal omission” of the United States and the international coalition.

The Russian general was responding to U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ claims that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad was creating problems in his country by inviting both Iran and Russia to enter Syria.

Furthermore, the Russian MoD’s Spokesperson slammed the U.S.’ ventures in Syria, adding that their weapons often fall into the hands of terrorists.

“All this time Washington focused on financing and direct arms supplies to fictional ‘Syrian opposition’ totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. However, the vast majority of US-supplied arms and ammunition fell into the hands of the Syrian al-Qaeda branch – Nusra Front [terrorist group, banned in Russia] and Daesh, who sought, like Washington, to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government,” Konashenkov said.

Well, we all know the truth.
America claims to be in Syria to fight Daesh.
Daesh only survives in Syria because America protects them . . .
So they can “justify” remaining in Syria . . . to fight Daesh!
This is Alice-in-Wonderland stuff – and Mattis thinks the world believes him.
What a terrible, dangerous joke the Americans have become.

The problem is of course that the US Zio Mafia leadership are ‘A joke’ with many guns and lots of plundered cash.

Generally the Zionist everywhere blame others for what they do themselves.

It is the manipulation technique of spoilt children but nevertheless very effective.

Actually, ISIS controls 2 areas inside SAA controled zone, 1 area into Kurd controlled zone, 1 area into FSA controlled zone an 1 area between SAA and SDF, So it’s mostly equal! And I don’t deny at all “that the expansion of the Daesh terror group to Syria had become possible due to “criminal omission” of the United States and the international coalition.” I actually 100% agree with Maj.Gen. Igor Konashenkov, the infamous Kerry even bragged that Yanks simply let Daesh entering Syria to pressure Assad into negotiating and instead, he stunned them by calling Putin for help instead. Kerry… Read more »

In the first place who invited America in Syria, America created ISIS so as to create a pretext to invaded Syria. Russia and Iran were invited by an elected government of Syria

But this is not quite true since there is a large pocket of ISIS in the Deir Ezzor deserts west of Al Bukamal and south of Deir Ezzor city. Once that pocket has been annihilated, THEN this statement will be 100% correct.
