US-Supported Terrorists Attack UN Humanitarian Convoy in Syria

US-Supported Terrorists Attack UN Humanitarian Convoy in Syria

by Stephen Lendman

A quick check spotted no scoundrel media reports - ready to falsely accuse Syrian and Russian forces of attacking civilian targets, virtually always carried out by US-backed terrorists.

Syria’s conflict rages, peaceful resolution unattainable because Washington wants war, another country raped and destroyed, added to its trophy list - remaining unaccountable for genocidal crimes.

According to Russia’s Defense Ministry, US-backed Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) terrorists shelled a UN humanitarian convoy near Damascus - while desperately needed aid was being distributed to area residents.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said Moscow called for the group to be added to the list of other designated terrorist organizations in Syria. Washington and its rogue allies blocked the move.

Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar ash-Sham are ruthlessly similar to ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and likeminded groups - guilty of daily ceasefire violations and numerous atrocities, including chemical weapons use, serving as imperial foot soldiers.

Russia’s Defense Ministry also said Jaysh al-Islam attacked Syrian military forces with mortars in Arbil and Jaubar villages.

The group is part of a larger Islamic Front coalition - supported by Washington, NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel.

In mid-May, allied Ahrar al-Sham terrorists massacred scores of al-Zara village women and children, took others hostage - confiscating local homes and personal possessions. At the time, Prime Minister Wael al-Halaqi called the incident “a heinous crime against the whole world.”

Washington and its rogue allies back these cold-blooded killers, providing them with arms, munitions and other material support - atrocities repeated on a regular basis.

US-supported terrorists attacking humanitarian convoys isn’t new, nor raiding them to steal what’s intended for desperate Syrians in need.

Yet these groups aren’t included among Security Council-designated terrorists because Washington and its rogue allies supports them. 

While attempting to destroy Syria,  slaughter it people and oust Assad, they’re included in farcical peace talks, dead-on-arrival, now suspended, certain to continue futility if resumed.
