DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:35 P.M.) – The Russian warplanes did not conduct ant airstrikes against the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in the Syrian eastern city of Deir Ezzor, Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

MoD spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that ” Russia’s Aerospace Forces deliver surgical strikes against the terrorist facilities, which are identified and confirmed via several channels.”

“The strikes are delivered against the firing points of the IS group, which shells the positions of Syrian forces and also against the terrorists heading from the back areas,” Konashenkov said.

Reports published earlier today cited an SDF official claiming  that Russian jets bombed the Kurdish militia near Coneko gas field in Deir Ezzor.

Perfect answer. “We are bombing terrorists. (Get out of the way!)”

It is a perfect answer indeed.
If the US declares that American and SDF forces were bombed they de facto admit to consorting with ISIS and if not, they have to keep their loudmouths quiet.

Yes Sir. That was my first thought too.
What the NATO-crime syndicates and friends use to forget (wouldn’t change anything anyway because they are just not smart enough)? They deal with Russia, Syria and Persia. Countries with millennia of civilisation and coming with that.. the art of diplomacy.

Yes, very excellent answer. A bomber pilot can not know which terrorist is from the SDF and which terrorist is from ISIS. Especially when they stand together and shake hands. 🙂

No
The attack is correct because SDF is fighting alongside ISIS. The SDF just drove into Conoko gas field and are with the ISIS there as of now. Since Syria wants the Conoko gas field they have to clear the place for the infantry to get in because ISIS is still present there. SDF wants to become human shield for the ISIS.

Either is Russia playing mind games or someone is trying to instigate a conflict between Russia and U.S. (Hint: Israhell)

US and their proxies are all child rapist terrorists and are hence viable targets for bombing.

No mind games. There is serious collaboration between ISIS and SDF; both are now terrorists the coalition of Russia, Iran and Hezbulla has to deal with. SDF has teamed up with ISIS to steal Syrian resources with the support of the invading Americans. ISIS have changed their uniforms to SDF uniforms. SDF=ISIS

SDF.eq.ISIS
How can RuAF make a diff. who is who?
Maybe morning ISIS afternoon SDF and next day IDF or CIA?
Putin, you promissed a-bombs on ISIS, now you can deliver your commitment, drop a-bomb on them.
