BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Syrian delegate to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’afari, told the Security Council on Wednesday that Israel provided air support to the Islamic State (ISIL) forces fighting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Palmyra.
“Israel provided air support to ISIL with airstrikes in Palmyra,” the Syrian delegate told the audience.
Ja’afari is alluding to the Israeli airstrikes that were conducted near the T-4 Military Airport late last month; this attack provoked a direct response from the Syria Air Defense.
In addition to aiding ISIL, Ja’afari also accused Israel of providing medical relief and air support to Al-Qaeda in Syria.
