Washington has used its military garrison in the Syrian area of At Tanf to contribute to the creation of a terrorist reserve in the war-torn country, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin told the Russian TV news network Rossiya 24. He noted that this is done this is done “under the leadership of the special operations forces and other units of the United States.”
“We are concerned about the situation in the 55-kilometer security zone near the settlement of al-Tanf. It is located on the border with Iraq in western Syria, where a reserve for terrorists has, in fact, been created, and where they are rearmed and prepared for relevant sallies,” the official said.
Fomin also recalled a poor humanitarian situation in the Rukban refugee camp, which is located in the US-occupied 50km zone. US forces do not allow the Syrian government to deliver humanitarian aid there.
