In the last 7 days, the Russian Air Force has launched a total of 148 airstrikes inside Syria, while the U.S. led “Anti-ISIS Coalition” has reportedly conducted 6 aerial attacks to contrast their U.N. Security Council rival.

According to statistical data provided by the Syrian Air Defense, the Russian Air Force has conducted 148 airstrikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra”, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Shamiyah, and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) inside Syria in the last 7 days.

Meanwhile, the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition has only conducted a total of 137 airstrikes against both ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra inside Syria’s northern countryside; however, these 137 airstrikes are the total number of attacks launched by the U.S. led Anti-ISIS Coalition in the last 13 months.

These statistics could be somewhat misleading, given the fact that the Russian Air Force is also targeting Islamist rebel groups that the U.S. and their allies either militarily/monetarily back or disengage completely.

But the statistics provided by the Syrian Air Defense also raise the question about the effectiveness of the Anti-ISIS Coalition because the Russian Air Force has not only bombarded the terrorist group frequently, they have also discovered numerous ISIS sites that have been untouched by U.S. and its allies.

As the U.S. and Russia attempt to join forces to combat the terrorist group around Syria and Iraq; it has become apparent that the U.S. resents the Russian presence and military endeavors inside Syria.
