Daesh Carries Out Attacks from US-Controlled Area near Al-Tanf
Local Editor

The 100km area around the US Al-Tanf base near the Syrian-Jordanian border became a "black hole" which Daesh [the Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS/ISIL'] terrorists use to carry out attacks against Syrian troops and civilians, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The base, set up by the US in April 2017 near the border town of Al-Tanf, is becoming a problem for Syrian troops combatting Daesh terrorists in Deir Ezzor province, the statement said.

"Unlawful establishment by the US of this military base on Syria-Jordan border in April this year has been publicly justified by ‘the need to conduct operations against IS,'" the statement reads.

However, "there were no reports of a single American operation against [Islamic State] during the six months of its existence," The Russian Defense Ministry said.

"Though the Pentagon repeatedly claimed that the base is used to train the so-called ‘New Syrian Army' by the coalition instructors from the US, the UK and Norway," it has become "a 100-kilometer black hole" on the Syria-Jordan border, the statement added.

The ministry also accused the US of not letting humanitarian convoys through the area to reach the Rukban refugee camp, which is located close to the base.

The camp is reportedly hosting around 60,000 women and children from Raqqa and Deir Ezzor.
