The speaker of the People’s Council of Syria, Hadiya Khalaf Abbas, said on September 26 that the Syrian government has a recording of conversations between the Uunited States military and ISIS terrorists ahead of the US-led coalition airstrike on Syrian troops outside the city of Deir Ezzor on September 17.
“The Syrian Army intercepted the communications between the Americans and Daesh [Arabic pejorative for Islamic State/IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL] ahead of the attack on Deir Ezzor,” the Al Mayadeen channel cited the Syrian official.
So, Damascus has evidence that the US-led coalition’s airstrike was a deliberate act. Abbas announced that details of the recording will be released.
We recall, the US-led coalition warplanes bombed (over a hour) the Syrian government forces outside the city of Deir Ezzor on September 17. The bombing killed 62 soldiers and injured over 100 others. The incident took place ahead of the ISIS advance in the area.
According to Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, the bombing of Syrian forces by the US-led coalition was a deliberate act (Washington claims it was an accident). Muallem said this during his speech at the UN General Assembly last weekend.
Muallem said that the bombing “proves that the US and its allies are accomplices of Islamic State and other terror groups.”
