The USA will continue to provide assistance to the Syrian opposition which fights ISIS in Syria, US Department of Defense’s spokesperson Adrian Rankine-Galloway told journalists on April 13.
“We continue to support vetted Syrian opposition forces that are taking the fight to ISIL [Daesh] in a host of ways and we’ll continue to monitor the situation on the ground and enable those local motivated, capable forces fighting ISIL,” RIA cites the US official.
At the moment, it isn’t clear which kind of “assitance the US is going to provide.
Recently, there have been numerous reports in mainstream media that the US and its regional partners are concerned about violations of the ceasefire (mainly by “the regime”) and are preparing “Plan-B” for Syria.
We remember, on February 23, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said the US was “not ruling out a Plan B” in case the ceasefire did not hold. Nonetheless, there are no information what “Plan B” means.
In any case, the recent developments clearly show that the US doesn’t want to cooperate with Russia on the cessation of hostilities in Syria.
Thus, the negotiations on Syria is just an attempt of the American leadership to achieve a success on the diplomatic field after the lose on the battlespace where the government forces show a significant success with support of Russia and Iran.
