BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – Russia accused the U.S. military on Thursday of training militants inside the Al-Tanf region of southern Syria.

During a press conference on Thursday, the Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that the Kremlin has information about the U.S. military training militants in the Al-Tanf region.

“In fact, under the excuse of fighting against the ISIL [the former name of the Islamic State terror group outlawed in Russia – TASS] and – as we were told – in order to contain Iran, a big US military base was set up there – in a strategically important area adjacent to the borders of Syria, Iraq and Jordan, which is close to the highway connecting Baghdad and Damascus. And there, according to numerous witness accounts, militant training is underway,” the Russian diplomat said.

The U.S. has been in control of the Al-Tanf region since the New Syrian Army (NSA) captured this border area in 2016.

Amrika will never announce MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. If they do this then they have to quit Syria & Iraq and go back. U S has other plans after Syria.

They will continue to breed mosquitoes & snakes in their back yard to use them against Turki & Iran.

We systematicly has heard Assads and Turks here telling lies about the misson of Al Tanf. ISIS for a short period were hard supported by USA as the ultimative weapon against Assads, but after that and Saudis there and Turks stopped, there has been the opposite. Kobani made ISIS a hard time – and Al Tanf since then -now in reduced importenece has delayed and stopped alot of ISIS logistics.

Cela ne sert plus à rien de dénoncer.
Ceux qui ne savent pas maintenant, après toutes les informations depuis des années, ne voudront jamais savoir.
Et ceux qui savent et ne font rien sont des complices de la lente mort des plus anciennes civilisations dont nous sommes issus!

United States of Terrorists : ” after the Second World War, the United States and their allies installed a “free and open international order in order to safeguard the freedom of the people from aggression and coercion. This order is presently undermined by Russia and China, who are violating the principles and rules of international relations”.

Certainly slowmail from Russins.

Most others in the whole world knows USA(and GB) has done it with 2 kinds of Semi-FSA for years.

Some like me even think it could be possible, that they until ISIS got out of hand even trained ISIS there for advanced weapons.
