Russia Releases Photos Showing US Special Ops At ISIS Positions In Syria

Tyler Durden's picture

The Russian Defense Ministry has released aerial images allegedly showing ISIS, the SDF, and US special forces working side-by-side on the battlefield against Syrian and Russian forces in Dier ez-Zor, Syria.

As Adam Garrie reports, via The Duran,it has long been thought that the US proxy militia SDF is operating in collusion with ISIS in various parts of Syria. This has especially been the case in respect of Deir ez-Zor. In Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry has previously stated that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies are fired on most intensely from positions known to be held by the SDF.

Furthermore, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov recently stated,

“SDF militants work to the same objectives as Daesh terrorists. Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontations between Daesh and the ‘third force’, SDF”.

He added that Russia will not hesitate to target SDF forces that threaten the battle field progress and personal safety of Russia’s allies, namely the Syrian Arab Army.

Other reports surfaced of US military helicopters airlifting known ISIS commanders to safety as the Syrian Arab Army made its advance on the former ISIS stronghold of Deir ez-Zor. All of this has happened as the US is moving its proxy Kurdish led SDF forces from Raqqa to Deir ez-Zor, in a move that appears to be an attempt to stop Syrian forces from liberating their own country’s legally recognised territory.

Now, the Russian Defense Ministry has released a statement followed by 12 photos showing how SDF forces work alongside US special forces in ISIS controlled areas without facing any resistance from ISIS. Furthermore, none of the US or Kurdish led forces even take defensive positions which indicate that they are cooperating with ISIS rather than engaging in a perverse truce. In other words, the SDF, US special forces and ISIS move among each other in the same manner as allies do.

The following is the statement from the Russian Defense Ministry on the matter:

#US Special Operations Forces (#SOF) units enable US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (#SDF) units to smoothly advance through the ISIS formations.


Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the #SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the #Euphrates towards #Deir_ez_Zor.


The aerial photos made on September 8-12 over the ISIS locations recorded a large number of American #Hummer vehicles, which are in service with the #America‘s #SOF.


The shots clearly show the US SOF units located at strongholds that had been equipped by the ISIS terrorists. Though there is no evidence of assault, struggle or any US-led coalition airstrikes to drive out the militants.


Despite that the US strongholds being located in the ISIS areas, no screening patrol has been organized at them. This suggests that the#US_troops feel safe in terrorist controlled regions”.

This demonstrates that in spite of Donald Trump’s apparent wiliness to abandon the policy of aiding jihadist groups, not only has this policy not changed, but such a reality now includes full scale battlefield collusion with ISIS.

This also helps explain why in June of this year, SDF forces allowed ISIS terrorists to peacefully leave Raqqa and head towards Deir ez-Zor, a place which is now unquestionably the largest remaining ISIS stronghold in east of Libya.

But now, not only are US proxies allowing ISIS to peacefully retreat but they are visibly coalescing on the battle field. These realities also corroborate the story of SDF fighters being wounded in a Syrian led strike on known ISIS targets. As I wrote previously in The Duran, this is because SDF militants are fighting beside ISIS.

The fact of the matter is that, the Kurdish led SDF and ISIS now share the same strategic goals, in spite of apparent ideological differences. Both seek to aggressively and illegally prevent Syria from liberating her sovereignty territory and in so doing, both are challenging the territorial unity and integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic. Likewise, each group’s ideology is opposed to the Arabist Constitution of Syria, seeking instead to lay the ground work for sectarian ideologies in the areas they seek to illegally annex.

Most worryingly, both militant groups are clearly collaborating and colluding with each other and with the United States, in a proxy war against Syria and the interests and safety of her allies, including Russia and Iran.

What once was only partly clear, is now as clear as the following colour photographs from the Russian Defense Ministry.

The images released by the Russian Defense Ministry encourage speculation that the US and SDF forces have some sort of “understanding” with IS terrorists operating in the region, according to Ammar Waqqaf, the director of the Gnosos think tank.

“From the footage, the Americans seem to be and the SDF seem to be quite at leisure, they are not expecting any attack any time soon,” Waqqaf told RT.

“The reason why this may be the case is that there has been some sort of understandings with ISIS over there. Probably they were given some amnesty, that they are not going to be prosecuted, … or they were given guarantees that they would not be given back to the state.”

The SDF, ISIS and the United States are fighting on the same side of the conflict in Syria, it is the side of terrorism which seeks to destroy the secular, modern, pluralistic and independent Syrian Arab Republic.

Earlier in September, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov accused the SDF of collusion with ISIS terrorists. “SDF militants work to the same objectives as IS terrorists. Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontations between IS and the ‘third force,’ the SDF,” Konashenkov said.

This proves that the Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman was correct. The US and Russia are at war, albeit a proxy war which includes ISIS.

THese Russian pictures are obvious fakes. Nobody  believes them but Russian mouthpieces.

So Russia should just bomb them I guess?

Conscious Reviver's picture

Sinbad, I apologise. You were right unfortunately.

A Russian general and 2 other officers were just killed.

"Last night a Russian three-star general and two colonels were killed in a mortar attack while they visited a Syrian army headquarter in Deir Ezzor"

Russia responding with airstrikes?

DeepState wants war, too manly skeletons in the closet.?

Is this why we have the NFL tweet storm?

scaleindependent's picture

Those pictures seem to be true.

The Americans are not denying them. They are saying that that was previous ISIS territory and that ISIS has been removed.

The only problem with that theory, is that there are trustworthy reports that I.S.I.S. is not far off.

The "arrangement" is bigger than what is claimed. There are more "parteners".

spyware-free's picture

That's the point of releasing these images and statement. Since the U.S and Russia really have no diplomatic contacts this is the best way to tell the Yanks..."We're watching you and know where you are". Basically, it's a warning to the U.S. not to try any clown-fuckery and attack Russian positions.

Blankone's picture

Welll, a Russian Lt General was just killed in a mortar attack at Deir. This appears to have happened After the threat from the Russians that any further attacks would be responded to with all force available.

The Russians described the attack as a "sudden mortar shelling" which has led some to suggest the US was closely observing his visit to the outpost outside of Deir and called in and directed the mortar shelling. There was NO report from the Russians regarding any retaliation.

Sooo, Russians had a special meeting with the US in Syria and very clearly said if any Syrian forces were attacked there would be a response, then there is s sudden mortar attack just when a Russian Lt General visits an outpost and he is killed (a message is given) --- Now it's time to back up the talk. (And not just disclosing info about the US/ISIS connection.)

JohninMK's picture

The Russians were specific on that, the attack had to be from an SDF area. This was not.

Blankone's picture

That reeks of just making more excuses for not holding a "red line".

The russians mentioned the SDF area specifically because it was being treated as a "safe" area. The Russians made it clear that there would be no such safe areas.

Now a Russian Lt General has been targeted and killed at an outpost outside of Deir. AND now what? Nothing?

By your logic all the US has to do is have their proxy attack the Russian's directly from outside the SDF area and they will be safe.

An interesting thought being voiced from some is that this was too accurate of a hit. They suggest the mortars were fired but they also covered for a smaller guided missile that pin pointed the Lt Generals hiding spot.

"it's a warning to the U.S. not to try any clown-fuckery and attack Russian positions."

Like making a statement is going to change anything on the ground? I doubt the Russians will shame the military into standing down. So, this is propaganda for the US public.

Firstly, I saw pictures that did not have adequate detail. They could say they spotted the Man In The Moon and I wouldn't know any better.

Secondly, Russia made the claim. That's like the US/Marxist MSM saying stuff. Credibility for Russia, China and Mainstream Media are pretty close to zero.

Thirdly, Trump ordered the CIA to stop funding the "US-backed" SDF. It is possible that the Saudi's have filled the void (no longer US-backed). It is possible that the Deep State ignored the Commander-In-Chief. It is possible that Trump stated one thing to the American people and continued CIA operations.

We will never know. The fact that Assad's proxy (Russia) is complaining makes me think the anti-Assad side is making gains. Personally, I couldn't care less. With or without Russia and the USSA, the Middle East will be fighting with itself forever.

Demologos's picture

Hey BrownNose, propaganda for the US public? These pictures and the statements from the Russian Ministry of Defense won't get a second of coverage or an inch of ink in the US propaganda outlets. Russia and China news media credibility pretty close to zero. Like the US media "99% likelihood of Hillary Clinton winning the election" credibility? Are you a Pentagon cyber warrior or is that a roll of quarters in your pocket?

The Russians destroyed a command center full of US, Israeli, and Saudi "advisers" in Aleppo some months ago in a cruise missile attack. Expect a repeat. Then, expect an S-400 enforced no-fly zone. After that, anything goes.

BrownCoat's picture


You misunderstood. When I said Marxist MainStream Media, I meant US MSM that is completely controlled by Cultural Marxists (aka politicially correct Left-Wing extremists). So YES, the established news outlets in the USSA have zero credibility; just like Russia and China.

You Reds should be happy that your Fifth Column activity has finally started to achieve some results in America. Haven't you figured it out yet? It's not about ideology, it's about power. It's fine that you cheer for your home team. Just remember that 'your team' will sell you out when it's convenient for "national policy" or for some govt dweeb's whim.


BTW, I stand by my original post. Russia complaining about a battlefield situation is not going to change the behavior of the "US-backed" forces. They most likely are not watching. This is just for US public consumption.

of course they know.From the very beginning.Like any intelligent,informed person. ISIS/Al Qaeda created,armed,trained by See Eye Ayy,Mo$$ad,Em Eye 6,and funded and having their ideology from Saudi Barbaria.

The beauty is that Russia EXPOSED this for all the world to see. Irrefutable facts.All the US BS debunked piece by piece.In an elegant,calm and mature manner.

They provided the rope for US to hang itself.

If Putin finally gets some stones and lights up some of the Israeli heebs' jets it surely will. Israel will then howl and get the US Armed Goyim to fight their war for them on some ginned-up allegations - just like w/ Saddam.

As an approved "alt-media" script, your outline rings "true" for the purposes of posing what we are supposed to perceive as the current nature of the 'alliance' tween a kabbalist-kontrolled Merika and VARIOUS NEFARIOUS parties...

such as is on display here of the moment. Critical thinking skills, and recognition that ALL media are now produced and directed by the same sionist.... errr... "juggernaut" of judahist origin, however,

causes one to hesitate before jumping the to command of that canard. Putin, seasoned realist that he is, will NOT be conforming to your action-hero fantasies any time soon, nor will Russia be interfering with the advance of Sraeli foreign policy objectives,

which share enough goals in common with Moscows' perceived self interests to allow/ nay / necessitate a tactical alliance between the two, which includes their joint "proxy" Turkiye, and will soon nuff also involve a strangely compliant and eager Iran.

Solntsevskaya Bratva/Mossad herd direction is a powerful drug. Sip at own risk fannbouys of the "alt-media."

Conscious Reviver's picture

Let's see. I say you are full of shit.

"... nor will Russia be interfering with the advance of Sraeli foreign policy objectives,

Iranian troops are digging in by the  Golan as per the Astana agreement. Your true love Bibi said no Iranians in Syria or else.

In fact, the whole Russian involvement in Syria is "interfering with the advance of Sraeli foreign policy objectives". Or did you not notice that?

While Yomutti is the more standard issue revolting zino-troll,  you are the pompous gas bag version. Outed. Save it for / better yet take it to WaPo.

Let's not mention that ISIS is basically an unrecognized Saudi Arabia 2.0. Policies and culture are identical.

This was obvious to ZHers for many, many months. 

What is also obvious, when reading 

"US military helicopters airlifting known ISIS commanders to safety"

is that the US is the Proxy Army for IDF and ISISRAEL.

NWO, it's all the about the coming destruction of the USA and the constitution for the people. Hegelian dialectic, attach the bad to the good and let everything crash. The people will forget about the good and look for a new savior. Our one world government ruled by the Rothschild central banks and the Rockefeller corporations. Those 2 families decided their claims and work perfectly together.
