BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:05 A.M.) – The U.S. Coalition’s official spokesperson claimed on Sunday that their jets had killed 85 Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists and destroyed over 40 of their vehicles that were traveling from the Syrian-Lebanese border to Deir Ezzor.

“Hezbollah-ISIS update: 85 Daesh killed, 40 separate ISIS vehicles destroyed; @CJTFOIR NOT targeting or preventing aid to civilians,” the official Twitter account of Operation Inherent Resolve claimed on Sunday.

This claim comes just days after the U.S. denied their air assets were targeting the ISIL convoy that consists of 300 combatants and 500 civilians.

Both Hezbollah and Iran have urged the U.S. to halt their bombings in order to prevent the 500 civilians from being killed by Coalition jets; however, this has been ignored.

Terrorism has no sovereign nation. Thank you, America, for making the fighting in Deir ezzor easier for the SAA

I feel that you are being rather disingenuous here. The US does NOTHING to help the SAA.

…they lied again. This is just punishment for not fighting to the death for US purposes. Wait and see how many unarmed women and children were killed, the US militarys favorite targets. The US NEVER helps without and agenda of their own.

The convoy was under the protection of the Red Cross/Crescent , numerous vehicles of the said organization were among the green buses , which were Syrian citizens’ property. The jury is out- the US has committed a war crime , flaunting the Geneva Convention. Of course , if killing hundreds , if not thousands , of civilians in Raqqa is no problem for the US , the killing of the ISIS family members was not a problem either.

I guess I’m with the Panda here…Any dead Daesh is good news, if it helps the SAA all the better, but even if it doesn’t it’s still dead Daesh and thus good.
