At the base in the area of Al-TANF on the border with Iraq, the Americans have deployed a new batch of long-range rocket systems of volley fire. About it reports Reuters with a reference to the intelligence data.
Americans do not hide that a highly mobile system HIMARS delivered from Jordan, “significantly strengthen the US military potential in the region.” This system can hit targets at ranges of up to 300 km before the Americans used the HIMARS complexes from the territory of Jordan and Turkey. Then they were deployed in the North of Syria, where it was used to attack militants(banned in Russia organization).
However, the strengthening of the American group is in the South raises some questions, as district At-TANF have repeatedly been the subject of conflict and strife between Syria, USA and Russia.
There is a training camp of the Syrian opposition, and the base is regularly used by the American and British special forces for operations against extremists.
Let me remind you that in may, the aircraft of the international coalition led by the United States, was inflicted on the convoy of Syrian government forces and their allies. On the eve of the air strikes these units in 27 km from the base clashed with the opposition forces supported by Washington. The Pentagon said that coalition air forces tried to stop the advance of the convoy to the base side at first warning of fire, but then was forced to put an airstrike. Then in early June the district At-TANF coalition aircraft was twice attacked by militia supporting the government in Damascus. Now this is where they reinforce their position by bringing in this difficult region, where the interests of the various parties, a large party of long-range rocket systems of volley fire.
Recently in the sensational film by American Director Oliver stone about Vladimir Putin has sounded the position of the Russian President about the struggle of Washington against terrorism. In particular, Vladimir Putin said that Moscow had been counting on Washington’s support in the fight against terrorist threats, but saw that the Americans, in practice, is evil only support. According to the President, the Russian side has developed a strong opinion that the American partners in words talking about the support of Russia and cooperation in the fight against terrorism, but in fact use this phenomenon as a tool of its policy.
