BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:50 A.M.) – The U.S. State Department released a statement on behalf of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo regarding the downed Russian aircraft in Syria.

“The United States expresses sorrow for the death of the aircrew members of the Russian plane that was downed by Syrian regime anti-aircraft fire.”

The State Department said there needs to be an urgent solution to the Syrian Conflict that is also in line with the U.N. Security Council’s Resolution 2254.

It underlines the urgent need to resolve the Syrian conflict in accordance with UNSC Resolution 2254 and to end Iran’s provocative transit of dangerous weapon systems through Syria, which are a threat to the region.

The statement also touched on the Iranian weapons transfer to Hezbollah that is often Israel’s reason for bombing Syria.

When you express sorrow to someone whose relatives were killed you never express the reasons or circumstances around their death. Otherwise it sounds like you exploit their death in your own beneficial account…

Hipócritas…!!!. El pronunciamiento de Rusia debe ser el rechazo a la falsa dolor que expresa EE.UU.
Al contrario los patrocinadores del terrorismo debe estar contentos o felices con la desgracia ocurrido con el avión Ruso y su tripulación.

Yes just more lies from this man, former CIA Director, Pompeo. CIA funds these proxy terrorists as they did in Kosovo and everywhere else. He could care less about all the pain and misery has caused innocent Syrians. How does this creep sleep at night? I wouldn’t want to be him on judgement day.

You’re mistaking the Trump admin with the Obongo one… BTW, CIA wasn’t so hot about the actions of Killary’n’co… They deliberately sabotaged a lot of things, lots of intelligence was passed to Mossad which passed it to the Russians which passed it to Bashar or made it public… You can’t know so much we do about an operation like Timber Sycamore if they don’t deliberately leak stuff in order to torpedo the operation. And you also had DIA and the DoS leaking even more… Let’s say that Killary or Kerry dubious ‘friendships’ were very very badly seen in US intelligence… Read more »

Yeah Right! We’re so sorry………And Israel’s Tyranny goes for a walk in the Park. A well Executed plan By the US swapping transponders, France firing missiles and Israel using an agreed flight path the US squeezed out of the Russian path of it’s defense….. Oh Lorde! The Whiteman can not be trusted

France fired ZERO missiles.
You don’t switch transponders at will, actually in military case, it is IFF

And there is serious cyphering with individual coding, you don’t lure it at will. For sure it can be cracked, but by the time you crack it, the flight has long landed 🙂
Sorry, you’re really drawing clueless conclusion on matters you obviously have seriously incomplete knowledges.
Russians are also “whitemen” and frankly, Levantines are of Mediterranean type, so they are ‘whitemen’ to…
I feel some racism pointing, am I wrong?

America apologizing is like the Mafia killing someone and going to the funeral, America is behind everything Israel does.
