Report: Hundreds of Russian Syria Deaths Remain ‘a Mystery’ After February U.S. Clash

Post by Didge on Fri May 25, 2018 1:31 am

In a four-hour February battle by a small U.S. military outpost in Syria, about 500 “pro-Syrian government forces—including Russian mercenaries” fought 40 special ops forces, despite U.S. officers calling their Russian counterparts and “urg[ing] them to stop the attack,” The New York Times reports. The Feb. 7 attack, which occurred near a Conoco gas plant close to Deir al-Zour, killed “200 to 300” pro-Assad forces, and no U.S. forces were harmed, the Times reported, citing interviews and documents it obtained. After U.S. forces called the Russians, they fired warning shots toward the amassing troops, who were a mixture of private Wagner Group mercenaries and Syrian forces. The troops still advanced on the U.S. personnel, leading to heavy casualties on their side. Russian officials have claimed that “several dozen” Russian citizens were killed or hurt in the fight, admitting four deaths. But the number could be hundreds more: A Syrian officer told the Times that about 100 of their soldiers were killed, leaving about 100 to 200 deaths from the fight unclaimed by either side. The use of mercenaries in Syria by Russians has not been fully disclosed by the Russian government.

It is up to the Syrian govt as to who they have invited in for support...


The US has no legal justification for having any troops in Syria!!!

I am asking you about Hezbollah

They have been fighting ISIS also

Hezbollah are also a terrorist organisation Tommy

I am against both

Are you saying you support Hezbollah, because they fight ISIS?

Kind of like saying you support Stalinism, because he also fought the Nazi's

Actually, I think the only thing I should question is your claim here

Based on what evidence Tommy, that the US supports ISIS beliefs?

I see you avoided my point on Hezbollah, which is interesting.

While you have constantly avoided my point that there is no legal justification for the US to have troops in Syria...


No surprise there though...!!!


Just the usual dodgy waffle that we see here...!!!

Really?

What legal laws are you going on about Tommy?

No surprise there, that you do not understand international law

So based on these same laws that were appllied in Kosovo and also Bosnia. Are you claiming they were also illegal.

I love it when someone clueless tries to apply law to something he has still not even grasped yet

Again Tommy, do you supprt Hezbollah?

Yes or no?

Simple questiom

It is an illegal occupation when you send in military forces without the agreement of the host country.
