Russia is fighting terrorists, US is killing civilians

On September 27, at least three civilians were killed and five more injured in an airstrike in the south-eastern al-Suwar district in Deir ez-Zor province. The strike has also damaged public and private buildings in the area. This is the just latest case of civilian casualties as a result of US-coalition air raids in Syria.

On Monday, coalition’s airstrikes left nine civilians dead in the northeastern province Hasaka. Those killed included an Iraqi family of six that had escaped ISIS violence in Mosul. Moreover, the coalition had also launched airstrikes on the villages Hadaj, Huneidis and Hassan Ali near the Iraqi border, which has resulted in huge material damage. On September 17, the coalition’s warplanes left at least 12 civilians dead near the city of Deir ez-Zor.

US admitted in August that at least 624 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes since the start of Operation “Inherent Resolve” against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

While American coalition is killing civilians, Russia is fighting terrorists. Thus, Russian Air Force in a special operation in the Idlib province liquidated five prominent field commanders and 32 militants. The five field commanders are Abu Sulman al-Saudi (chief of southern sector in Idlib province), Abu al-Abbas Anadin (emir on financial issues), Abu Hasan (adviser to military minister Abu Muhammad al-Djulani), Walid al-Mustafa (aide to spiritual leader Abdallah al-Muheisni) and also Abu Mudjagid (sharia judge).

During the operation, an ammunition and explosives depot and also six trucks with large-caliber armaments were destroyed.
