SDF Releases Statement Accusing Syrian, Russian Warplanes Of Airstrikes Against US-backed Fores Near Deir Ezzor

FILE IMAGE

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has released an official statement accusing Russian and Syrian warplanes of conducting airstrikes on the SDF near the industrial area north of Deir Ezzor city. The SDF also demanded “the attacking sides to stop these attacks that do not serve anybody but terrorism and terrorists.”

However, the SDF has not provided any photos or videos confirming their claims.

The pro-Kurdish/US media outlet AHNA provided an English version of the statement (source):

“While SDF forces are achieving great victories against IS [ISIS] mercenaries in al-Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor [Deir Ezzor] and as terrorism reached their end, some parties are attempting to obstruct SDF progress, consuming the energies that must be used against terrorism in addition to threatening the area’s safety and stirring lateral conflicts aiming and aborting struggles against IS mercenaries.

On Saturday dawn (September 16, 2017) at 03:00, our forces in the eastern part of the Euphrates River were exposed to an attack by the Syrian and Russian regimes warplanes that targeted our forces in the Industrial City and in the result of the attack, 6 fighters got wounded with various wounds.

In addition, this area has been liberated from IS mercenaries, and clashes are still ongoing for purging it completely from IS.

We condemn this aggressive attack and demand the attacking sides to stop these attacks that do not serve anybody but terrorism and terrorists. We also assure that these attacks would not undermine our insistence to fight terrorism and our progress in the area would continue till all the area would be purged completely form IS mercenaries’ abomination.”

Besides the accusations, the statement confirms that the SDF has not reached the western bank of the Euhprates River so far and is still struggling in the industrial area north of Deir Ezzor.

Earlier on Saturday, reports appeared that unknown (according to some media activists, Russian and Syrian) warplanes bombed SDF positions near the industrial area north of Deir Ezzor. Pro-government sources denied the claims that the Syrian Air Force bombed the SDF.

However, if the airstrikes really were conducted (by Russian and or Syrian warplanes), this was a clear signal to the SDF and the US-led coalition.

Probably, the SDF has not expected that the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance could implement the same strategy that the US-led coalition has implemented to stop the Syrian Army advance towards At Tand at the Syrian-Iraqi border.

  • gustavo

    This is just an statement, if SDF (USA) wants war, it will have it !!! Better for SDF to go back and stay away from Deir Ezzor. Now USA will use these SDF puppets to create problems to Syria people, wow, these USA-NATO-israel intentions are in continuous process.

  • BL

    I hope it’s true and that it is only the beginning of things to come

  • WinstonSmith

    Kurds have never inhabited that area, the land and resources there belong to the Syrian state based in Damascus, sometimes when fighting against terrorists invading your country, you just can’t help but make a mistake confusing them with other kinds of langrabbers with better PR acceptance in the West. The US has made tons of such mistakes.

  • Vince Dhimos

    While the last sentence is speculation, I would also suppose that is true. All they have to say is that it was a mistake.Tit for tat. The problem is, the SDF is US-led and the US is the invader, unlike the SAA. AND as Zainab Ali reminds, the US and its poodles threatened to kill SAA if they crossed the Euphrates, which makes them the enemy and therefore a legitimate target.Now if Deir Ezzor were part of Rojava, that might be a different kettle of fish, but these Kurds are far from home there.

    • dontlietome

      Minor correction Vince, the Russians fired Sub-launched Kalibr cruise missiles, not Iskander’s. There are Iskanders in that theatre, but they are based around their Airbase at Hiyuinim (excuse the incorrect spelling ).

      • Vince Dhimos

        Yes, sorry. They are both cutting edge missiles and I do confuse them (would that base be Hmeimim (also written Khmeimim)?

        • ruca

          I have great difficulty pronouncing it.

          • Goldfinch

            In Arabic it is exactly , H’May Meem.

          • ruca

            Well. Problem solved. Thanks!

        • dontlietome

          Yup, you’ve hit the nail on the head !

      • batavian01

        One further correction…The missiles batteries at Khmeimim are S-400 SAMs. There are many reports, including satellite images of Iskander launchers at the airbase but they have not been confirmed by Russia or Syria. There is one photo of a launcher just a few meters off the runway’s edge, claiming to be confirmation, makes no sense at all. This image, and others remind me of grainy out of focus images of UFOs and doctored photos a la MH-17. Stories about Iskanders in Syria abound, but they all originate and still float around in the blogosphere.

        • dontlietome

          Thank you for the feedback. My knowledge comes from one of the many RUPTY news shows from RT. They actually toured the base and its defensive perimeter. One got to see the Radar installations AND one of two trucks which serve as Iskander launchers. No I did not see the missiles AND the trucks could have been carrying Kalibr’s as they are interchangeable ……………….but Military common sense leads me to believe that there is more than a single launch platform at the base.

          • batavian01

            In Nov. 2016 RUPTLY posted a video on YouTube of Bastion missiles launched at anti-Syrian government forces.The launcher looks similar to that of an Iskander but the location was not disclosed. It would make sense if they were launched from the airbase because the Bastion is primarily a coastal defense missile but can also be used for offensive purposes.

  • Simon Gould

    The BBC, rabidly anti-Assad, had a report from downtown Deir Ezzor on the evening news showing people being given food and praising the SAA and Russians for liberating them. The reporter was accompanied by Russian special forces and there were Syrian soldiers in the streets, looking relaxed and in control. The SDF aren’t wanted or needed in the region.

    • AMHants

      BBC – my goodness, did they know what they were showing?

      • batavian01

        Heaven forbid. How did that get out of the editing room?

        • AMHants

          Precisely. Somebody looking for a new job, shortly afterwards?

  • eric zweistein

    False Flag ??

    • Simon Gould

      Maybe not – I hope they did attack the SDF

  • MD Ranix

    the sdf are selling their souls to the devils so easily – pathetic and dumb these losers are

  • Ivanus59

    I hope this airstrike killed many Turdish ultra-nationalist invaders. May much more Turdish terrorists die in the days to come.

  • Tudor Miron

    This Zio serving invader has a nerve to call my government “a regime”. Freely elected leader that proved his worth and has support of his nation – that’s who you’re talking about. That’s what you and your zio masters are affraid of so much.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    SDF Kurdish want petrol oil fields for the new Kurdish state…ISIS are the pretex…SAA dont let them!

    • FlorianGeyer

      The US wants the oilfields as well so that US companies can charge a lot for extracting it and the Trump can proclaim that the Syrian invasion is self funding.
      Mind you, IF the US gets its way the Kurdish held areas will be surrounded by their enemies, even in Iraq, so how will the oil get to market ?

      • Tudor Miron

        US promised them thick and thin and they were stupid enough to hope that “They (US) betrayed everybody other than Israel, but we’re somehow different and US will honor our deals and will stand behind us” God, have mercy for Kurds… they clearly don’t know what they are doing.

      • batavian01

        Probably the same way ISIS/ISIL oil got to market.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Yes, via the network of US coalition black market traders :)

  • cortisol

    I bet rest of ISIS will soon be absorbed by SDF.

  • Floyd Hazzard

    Lol….who legitimized the SDF? Don’t they know they are illegal under both Syrian and International law? If I was the SAA I would prefer my land to be under enemy ISIS with no Airforce, than usurper traitors backed by unprincipled foreign armies and airforced. Reclaiming them would be easier that way.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      That is what people forget they are only a ragtag militia and have no legitimate reason to be formed unless approved by the Syrian Govt , as the truth is they are a proxy of the US, which they think legitimizes their position.

      • John Whitehot

        we must not forget that the kurds are the only ones that held Kobane from ISIS two years ago, even with Turkey supporting the ragheads.
        What is just is just, and they should be credited with that.

        • RichardD

          Yes, they helped secure the northern border from more virulent Jew world order miscreants. But now they’ve turned on the government and are pursuing regime change in the area that they control and are capturing. Which makes them one more regime change element to have to deal with. If they were working with the government in the ares that they’ve captured rather than trying to exclude the government from these areas and secede with these areas, then it would be different.

          • John Whitehot

            I’ve just talked about kobane, and that was enough for hotheads to go boom. now these ones that are talking how the kurds are the pinnacle of the nwo go on and state that it was better if isis took kobane.

            Deal with it, the kurds are the only ones that fought isis from the start alongside the SAA, while the “fsa” was playing games with the jihadists basically since mambij ended.

          • RichardD

            They’re not fighting along side the government. With the exception of western Kurds. They’re trying to take area from Isis to keep it for themselves. That’s the problem. Hopefully they’ll negotiate recognising Syria government sovereinty without violence. Right now they’re trying to secede.

          • batavian01

            Exactly right.

          • George King

            I reject your obvious lunacy about events, either you are a shrill or a Zionist puppet or a zionist, you just can’t make up stuff or ignore past criminal aggression against Iraq or Syria by hook or crook.

          • John Whitehot

            you’re crazy as fuck.

          • batavian01

            The fact that Deir Ezzor is a very long way from Kobane and is an Arab city with barely a single Kurd in sight has been mentioned several times now but you seem to avoid addressing this issue.

            You wrote: “What is just is just, and they should be credited with that” in reference to Kobane. Should that credit include the gifting of Eastern Syria to the Kurds?

          • John Whitehot

            “What is just is just, and they should be credited with that” in reference to Kobane. Should that credit include the gifting of Eastern Syria to the Kurds”. lol no.
            you gotta be kidding.

          • Vince Dhimos

            They were on their turf at the northern border. Deir Ezzor is in the south and far far away. They have no justification being there and think the US will protect their assses.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Have to agree with RichardD , but they had even help from the SAA in securing it Manbij is not totally on board with the Kurds , why they asked for SAA support and they are the ones on the front lines fighting ISIS and get attacked by friendly fire of the US.

        • George King

          The Kurds have had their deals with ISIS in exporting stolen oil by ISIS and the Kurds in both Iraq and Syria through Kurdish territory to Turkey and shipped to Israel among other transnational criminal cabals in western countries. This supported the war against Syria and must not or will not be forgotten!

          Your selective memory is not innocent but as a Zionist or Zionist vassal.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Have to agree since the media doesn’t like to dwell on these deals they had with ISIS even to blame them for actions of terrorism and murders they committed.

          • John Whitehot

            you can agree all you want, normally most people having more than one day of life tends not to see things in black and white.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Many miss the obvious as they forget it’s the sum of the parts that make it whole. Things are easier when you don’t subconsciously try to deflect because of a bias even though you want to be impartial.

          • John Whitehot

            the problem is when you lack understanding of one or some of the parts and try to add them up nonetheless. the result cannot be valid.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            You try to add in external circumstances that don’t add anything to the situation but try to detract from it , is just diluting blending non essential facts.Saying they all have various reasons for the why is not the point an by that virtue your point is invalidated. The conclusion and the result are the end of the equation it doesn’t change the answer by declaring an unknown probable as part of it.

          • John Whitehot

            I didn’t do nothing but saying that the Kurds have held Kobane.
            You and the other posters did the rest.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            The city is called Ain al Arab not Kobane, the SAA held the city and had to leave to Damascus. The original origins of Kurd comes from the Persian word for wolf called Gurga or Kurdeh in Arab-Persian dialect spoken by Kurds.

          • John Whitehot

            keep the suphisms for discussions among jews. the name of the city isn’t relevant in the context i was talking, it was meant only to remember a certain event in the war.
            If I used GPS coordinates instead of the name “Kobane”, nobody would understand what I meant, yet it would not had changed the meaning at all.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Sorry not a Sufi Muslim, but much of what you argued is a fallacious argument , which can be alluded to as sophism.

          • John Whitehot

            lol, the zionist (and jihadist) way of things is accusing somebody (me) who tries to outline that the kurds did good things in this war (holding during the siege of kobane) of having selective memory.

            It’s not my “selective memory”, it’s yours, unless you are a turk and that mean that kurds are “all-wrong”. In any case, there is only one side that did basically “all-wrong” in this war, and that’s Israel plus Saudia.

            And in regards of WW3, it’s strange you mention it’s already raging. I’d expect missiles falling, bombers flying and nukes exploding, in the least.

          • Brother Ma

            Have you heard of the phoney war of 1939 in wwII?

          • John Whitehot

            uh ok.. but “phoney war” happened after ww2 was started. a certain period in which war is declared but not fought.

            yet if you state that ww3 has started without being fought you probably are rooting for it to happen.

            And we all know that there is only one side in this world that roots for a global nuclear war among the christian powers – again Israel with Saudia.

          • Brother Ma

            Yes , too true.

          • batavian01

            The stand in Kobane is one thing, but invading and occupying (which is what they are doing) cities and territories that are Arab, with not a single Kurd in sight is something else. The destruction of al-Raqqa is just one example.

            To suggest that their defense of Kobane justifies further expansion to the South makes no sense. Konabe, from the outset of hostilities was/is within a strip of land along the Syrian/Turkish border occupied by a primarily Kurdish population. Deir Ezzor is a very long way from there.

          • John Whitehot

            i didn’t suggest nothing.
            again, yall seem out of control for just a single phrase, in fact a correct one. Who the fuck ever talked about the Deir Ezzor scenario? Not me.

            At some points you give away the impression that you would prefer ISIS to win in Kobane, something that would give some heavy clues on your allegiance.

          • batavian01

            This article is about Deir Ezzor. Scroll up to confirm. You offered that the Kurds defeated ISIS at Kobane eventhough the Turks supported ISIS. “What is just is just, and they should be credited with that”….your words. What is this justice you speak of? Does their stand at Kobane justify their taking large chunks of land belonging to the Syrian people. Does it justify their standing in the way of the SAA? Does it justify taking Arab lands that are not now and never have been Kurdish?

            These are just normal questions that outside observers would ask and are asking.

            I’ll ignore your remark about my allegiance. Answer the questions.

          • John Whitehot

            “This article is about Deir Ezzor”
            That does not make it forbidden to talk about Kobane. I liked Kurds until their bosses started to become servile to US and Israel.

            “What is just is just, and they should be credited with that”
            I should had said, what is right is right.
            The Kurds held at Kobane and killed a lot of jihadists in general. This is the truth and negating it does not to any good.

            You keep asking if the above justifies anything, when I never said a word that suggested that. If the Kurds allow themselves to fight for US or more likely, Israeli interests, they will pay the consequences.

            That’s what happen when you start whoring around, you end up losing everything. If the US and Israel promise the Kurds an independent country and land taken from the Syrian people, they will have to fight for it, and this time they won’t be the “defending partisans”, but the invaders. Something that will cost them all the respect they have got both in and outside the region.

            With that in mind, I still think the public (us) knows too little to make up a correct idea on what to expect in the future.

        • Bru

          I understand, I used to have sympathy for them , but now, discovering that they were the ones who butchered the Armenians to steal their land, plus now their actions of stealing much Arab land moved me to side with the Turkish view and see the SDF as the Turks see the PKK.

    • Brother Ma

      No country appreciates that! Every country supporting us in syria thinks it is the exception.this wont happen to us. Just like every coubtey was happy to carve up czechoslovakia in forties because it was someone elses country. Foreigners who could not speak english etc!!!

      Well guess what! It failed.hitler still invaded and chopped every country.

      So when same thing happens with zionato allies you watch them cry like babies! Fcuking exceptionalists!

  • roger temple

    We will see. If Assad/Russian air forces did it more power to them. I doubt it very much. Such an action is simply not in character with Russian behaviour in Syria. They have not responded militarily to far worse provocations………
    Might conceivably be a genuine mistake on the part of Syrian/Russian forces; more likely US friendly fire, or even a false flag event.

    • John Whitehot

      yawn.

    • batavian01

      I’m leaning towards false flag.

      • roger temple

        Yes. And the Coalition has shown no photos = no event………

  • dontlietome

    It should not be forgotten, that it is the ISRAELIS who are directing the the SDF and Americunt Mercs. The Jooz have several fairly large Battlefield command and control centres entrenched in what is at the moment SDF territory. We can expect more fireworks in this area. The zionist filth is the root of all evil and needs to be liquidated, we shall have to wait and see if the Kalibr’s launched earlier are sufficient notice to the jooish filth, that Syria is NOT going to be Balkanized, and that the SDF will gain more from sitting an negotiating with Bashar and his Government. God Bless Bashar Al Assad, his brave coalition army, Hezbollah and the Iranians and the Russians for standing their ground and meeting this force of Evil head-on. God Bless them all.

  • Marinos Ricudis

    Airstrikes “causing injuries” sounds like a Russian warning shot to US-backed forces to stay in their lane away from the Euphrates.

  • If true – GREAT news!

  • The SDF also demanded “the attacking sides to stop these attacks that do not serve anybody but terrorism and terrorists.”

    enough of this PKK outshoot…

    Payback is a bitch.

  • Gary Wells

    I don’t believe this bombing occurred, but I think it could happen for real at any time. The SDF are probably trying to provoke a response from the US that will deter the Syrians and Russians from bombing them. So far, it doesn’t seem to have worked.

  • EL ZORRO

    SDF the United States MERCENARY TERRORIST AND SEPOYS.

  • dontlietome

    Sadly for them, the SDF have made many mistakes, and since they were always in a position of weakness, and the Yankees offered the hand of friendship, they accepted it not really considering how the Yankees would use them as proxy terrorists, just as the ISRAELIS created ISIS to do their bidding. Its never too late, but the SDF leadership should approach the Russians and ask them to mediate with the Al Assad government. Bashir is not stupid, he his a smart statesman and it is now when he might be far more amenable to the Kurds and allow them a Autonomous Homeland to start with. Anything is better than being poodles of the Yankee’s.

    When they are losing the battles; They suddenly are the victims like $shilter and her book,which she did not write; Same thing with the KURDS and the illegal squatters USA, they have “rights” as criminals??? hehehe?

  • zman

    Big boo-hoo for the Kurds, not. The Russians informed the US liars where the would be striking next and that the target was where the shelling on SAA was coming from. Keeping talking US, your about to shoot yourself in the foot again.
