US allows ISIS to operate under its nose: Russia

Russia accused the United States on Wednesday of allowing ISIS to operate “under its nose” in Syria, saying Washington was letting the terrorist group move about freely in an area abutting a U.S. military base.

The allegations, made by Russia’s Defense Ministry, center on a U.S. military base at Tanf, a strategic Syrian highway border crossing with Iraq in the south of the country.

Russia says the U.S. base is illegal and that it and the area around it have become “a black hole” where terrorists operate unhindered.

The United States says the Tanf facility is a temporary base used to train partner forces to fight against ISIS. Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning on Tuesday said Washington remained committed to killing off ISIS and denying it safe havens and the ability to carry out strikes.

But Major-General Igor Konashenkov, a spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, said Moscow wanted to know how around 300 ISIS terrorists in pickup trucks had passed through the U.S.-controlled area and tried to block the highway between Damascus and Deir al-Zor used to supply Syrian forces.

He said the U.S. had not yet given an explanation.

“We suggest the American side also explain about another incidence of their ‘selective blindness’ towards terrorists operating under their nose,” Konashenkov said in a statement.

He said about 600 terrorists based in a refugee camp in the U.S. controlled area had driven en masse to a former customs post called Tafas on the Syrian-Jordanian border earlier this month and seized food and medical supplies meant for locals.

“You don’t need to be an expert to now forecast an attempt to rupture the peace agreement in the southern de-escalation zone,” said Konashenkov.

“We issue a warning. All responsibility for sabotaging the peace process will lay exclusively with the American side.”


  1. Russia wants to expose US/Israel as terrorist states. It is not enough to disclose in words , Russia wants to substantiate the accusation of their crimes in practice . There is lots of proof of US/ Israel connections to terrorists , as to you, people, open your eyes , use your brains and make your own judgement .
    It’s my opinion , though .

    • Putin might be the best out of the lot on the political world stage of show business and propaganda but he will not save Americans who are disappointed about their nation, or the trimmed and enslaved Germans in their country nor the subjects of the queen in colonies or at home.
      To make a staged show more interesting a good producer directs all details of the production. The opposition is always run by one and the same who wrote the scripts. There are no coincidences!
      What we are witnessing is just another piece of faked history in 20 years to come.

  2. Can you expert of War academy explain me, why in all world US and western forces are in syria are they seeking bin laden there too? Why the russian can not ask the foreign illegal forces to leave and why the jew jets were never shot by s weapon. Please give me an correct answer !

    • Ariana it is Bin Laden Jr now THEY are looking for. Pretty sure he is in Syria, Iran & Afghanistan at the same time and whenever USIS wants him to be there.

  3. I know from my own experiences that EU USA UK ISISRAEL IDF these are all the same name for ISIS DAESH ISIL AL NUSRA AL JUNKIES AND HASHISHION AL MAD MEN !

  4. The U.S. is an outlaw criminal lying nation today lying to its own population and the rest of the world too. Two plus centuries and Ben Franklin was correct: Corruption took it to the bottom of the cesspool. Shame, shame, shame. America is gone folks. It is only a matter of time now. Our Constitution has been raped to death by the very liars and cheaters who took a meaningless oath to protect it.

  5. This is information that most who use the web already knows. It would be great if any of this would hit MSM, but that isn’t ever going to happen if the kontrollers have their way. This is why RT has to go…one way or another. Can’t be letting the cat out of the bag,eh? I remember when, back about a billion years ago, we here in the US thought the Russians were stupid to believe all the propaganda that their commie bosses unleashed upon them. My, how things have changed. The only difference is that today it’s us and even though there are alternative sources freely available, most still cling to the propaganda ministers willingly. We choose to be led. How sad a commentary is that for the west?

    • We can only imagine how massive in 20 years from now the global brain drainage from US imposed international system of affairs will look like when most of worldwide average young intellectuals are choosing not to follow it. There will still be corruption but modus operandi will be exposed to the ultimate. But still, instead of leading the world in space race, US keeps leading in silly arms race.
