Daily Messenger - - International -

MOSCOW: The United States is pro­vid­ing de-facto cover for Is­lamic State units in Syria and only pre­tend­ing to fight ter­ror­ism in the Mid­dle East, the Rus­sian De­fence Min­istry said on Tues­day.

The min­istry said the U.S. air force had tried to hin­der Rus­sian strikes on Is­lamic State mil­i­tants around the Syr­ian town of Albu Ka­mal.

“Th­ese facts are con­clu­sive ev­i­dence that the United States, while im­i­tat­ing an un­com­pro­mis­ing fight against in­ter­na­tional ter­ror­ism for the global com­mu­nity, in fact pro­vides cover for Is­lamic State units,” the de­fense min­istry said.
