Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Vitaly Churkin: “Over 200,000 Residents of Aleppo are Hostages of the Al-Nusra Front and Groups Allied With it.”


In a meeting with the United Nations Security Council, Russia’s envoy Vitaly Churkin reminds UN members, that Western backers are still supplying arms to Al-Nusra, while the US turns a blind eye. Securing peace “is almost an impossible task now” says Vitaly Churkin.

According to Churkin, the rebel militants inside of Aleppo are equipped with tanks, armored personnel carriers (APCs),  rocket launchers, and heavy weaponry.

It was about a week ago when Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov announced positive signs about maintaining a ceasefire in Syria. I remember feeling a sense of relief, that the US and Russia found a respectable middle ground.  But less than a day later, US-led coalition jets bombed the Syrian army in Deir-ez-zor. 62 Syrian soldiers were killed, and 100 others were wounded.  The four jets involved were from Australia, Denmark, the UK, and the US.

Not even one day had passed, before the US-led coalition broke the ceasefire.

Less than 7 minutes later, ISIS ground forces entered the area.

An Iranian military source said an ISIL ground attack was conducted after 7 minutes, indicating that ISIL took advantage of the errant airstrikes.[8]

Following the strikes, ISIL briefly captured the Tharda mountain. The mountain was seen as strategic as it looks over the government-held Deir ez-Zor military air base. By the end of the day, after heavy ground fighting combined with Russian and Syrian air-strikes that left over 38 ISIL fighters dead, the Syrian Army recaptured all of the positions they had lost on the mountain (including Tall Kroum). During the clashes, a Syrian MiG warplane was shot down by ISIL over the mountain and the pilot was killed.[9][10][11] However, the next day, ISIL was once again in control of the mountain after the military withdrew, creating a serious threat to the airport’s southern flank.[12][13][14] Also, ISIL captured the Artillery Battalion (south of Deir ez-Zor Airport).[15]
