There is a proof that the US had all intention to attack Syrian troops near Deir ez-Zor. This proof reveals conversations between the American military and ISIS terrorists.
According to the People’s Council speaker, the Syrian authorities have evidence that the US-led coalition’s airstrike was a deliberate act.
Abbas promised that details of the recording will be released by Damascus.
Syrian troops encircled by Islamic State militants near the town of Deir ez-Zor were bombed by US-led coalition warplanes on September 17.
Sixty-two soldiers were killed and over 100 injured in the airstrike, which was immediately followed by an offensive by jihadists on the positions of government forces.
The bombing was stopped only after the Russian military contacted the US side several times, saying that they were attacking the wrong targets.
Washington acknowledged the fact of the airstrike against the Syrian troops and even apologized for the mistake.
The incident dealt a serious blow to the Syrian ceasefire deal, which Moscow and Washington agreed earlier in September.
During his speech at the UN General Assembly during the weekend, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem also said that the bombing of Syrian troops by the US-led coalition was a deliberate attack, not a mistake as Washington claims.
“The Syrian government puts all the responsibility for the aggression on the US, as the facts show that it was a deliberate attack, but not a mistake – even if America says the opposite,” Muallem said, adding that the bombing “proves that the US and its allies are accomplices of Islamic State and other terror groups.”
