“Moderate Islamists” Free Syrian Army Rejects US Help

ALEPPO, SYRIA (11:20 P.M.) – The Free Syrian Army’s “Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah” issued a statement on Friday declaring their refusal to work with the U.S. Armed Forces in northern Aleppo.

According to their statement, the Free Syrian Army will not fight alongside the U.S. Armed Forces because of their support for “PKK separatists” in northern Syria.

All of the rebel groups participating in “Operation Euphrates Shield” against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) are backed by the Turkish Armed Forces and Erdogan regime.

‘There was no revolution in Syria’–Czech Ambassador To Damascus

Eva Filipi, the Czech Ambassador in Damascus, stressed that there was no “revolution” in 2012 and rather it was an attempt by some countries to implement their agendas which proved to be unachievable in Syria.

Filipi said “what is going on in Syria is a proxy regional and international war”. She added that “though many strategic experts in the West had realized what kind of situation will be created in Syria, western countries insisted to press ahead with their schemes to impose the changes they want.”

Her comments were said during a debate on the current developments in the Middle East organized by the Czech Institute 2080.

Kerry Cries “Foul” For Failed Ceasefire, After US Fighter/Bombers Destroy It

[ Syria war ceasefire: Assad army declares peace deal over with no promise of renewal ]

[After pretending that the American murder of 80 Syrian soldiers did not happen, or did not matter, Kerry is now howling that Russia must hold up its end of the Syrian peacemaking and enforce a non-existent ceasefire.  He is making a big stink over attacks upon an aid convoy to Aleppo, blaming Russian and Syrian airstrikes, even though it is his Free Syrian Army terrorists who are attacking the convoy and blocking it on the highway (Rebels send more fighters to block humanitarian aid to Aleppo).]

NEW YORK (AP) — The United States is demanding that Russia live up to its commitments in Syria’s fractured week-old truce. This comes after the Syrian military announced it was over amid numerous violations, including an attack on an aid convoy, and apparent Russian unwillingness to press Damascus on the point.

The latest developments placed added importance on a meeting Tuesday of the International Syria Support Group, or ISSG. The group is comprised of countries with a stake in the conflict and endorsed the truce, and is led by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Kerry called the convoy attack an “egregious violation” of the cease-fire and said the U.S. “will reassess the future prospects for cooperation with Russia.”
