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.

Not criminally insane. Just criminal.

For those who took the red pill, that's nothing new since 1775/1776. And even before this date.

Basically, Trump's announcment that they were ceasing aid to jihadists in Syria was a bunch of lies to feed to his base. He's a fucking scumbag like John Brennan and all the other Deep State parasites.

Yet,  Russians are the only one calling Americans partners... We all  know this for long time already.

"American partners" is code for "Gay partner, trying to fuck you up the ass."

(((Someone))) is getting nervous....

I also noticed FOX is doing a special tonight on the murders of 2 Pac and Biggie, its not a secret anymore. Michael Jackson too.

They're blaming it on the Las Vegas Police, the Illuminati killed them, for breaking the oath, speaking out.

This is another attempt by (((them))) to pit blacks vs. police.

I used to think the Illuminati was a conspiracy theory, not any more, (((they))) also killed Chester of Linkin Park and Cornell of Soundgarden.

Why? (((They))) know we're onto them and are about to be exposed for the world to see.

Its too late to stop this now. Your days are numbered.

Go ahead and call me crazy. Do your homework and you will see too.

So what ? WTF do  do people think is going on over there ? there is a legal term , Ultra Vires, Acting beyond the Lawfull authority to do so.

Every Cop in the Land should quit and every truck driver. If we no longer have the Law of the land then we have lost everything and are therefore Slaves.

Someone in the Chain at sometime is going to have to say No and bring Ten friends with Him/Her. It's time to shut this bullshit down, one way or another.

After the Russians telling the Americans about 78 hours ago. Any further shelling of the Russian and Syrian army marching North of Deir Ez-zor to secure the Oil Fields, the American, Kurd and Arab forces are also trying to grap. The Russias said those sites where the shelling is coming from will be taken out. And now today this happened. Expect blowback coming from these Russia Syrian fotces in the coming days.

No American girly man general or flag officer would ever get that close to actual combat. They want to go to work for one of the Merchants of Death and make millions after they retire from the Pentagram.

Well, yes. It IS the American Way.

Someone needs to show this to Trump so he can kick Kelly and McMaster to the fucking curb.  This shit has been going on since the poofter Muslim became president.

madashellron's picture

Why you don't think Trump knows what's really going on in Syria?

Duc888's picture



No, it has already been established that Kelly lets no one get past him.  That's why Trumps personal security man bailed last week.

Your poofter Muslim sure surrounded himself with Jew after Jew after Jew after Jew after Jew from chief of staff to Supreme court Justices.

Wake the fuck up and stop spouting hollow Republican talking points. You are part of the problem. 

Republicans are NOT Americans-they are republicans

Obama is fucking Jewish, likely converted in a pagan style baby blood drinking ceremony, topped off with fresh foreskins..What else could explain his appointments???

We're giving them ground support and the Jews gave them an air force. Pretty arcane coordinated effort just to destroy Europe.

Assuming Trump is legit, (Yeah, I know the kneejerk reaction is to say he isn't, but go with it),  getting control of the CIA/MIC should be his only priority.

Yup, right up to the point where they slide an envelope across his desk with his grand kids pics  (in crosshairs) in it.

Same goes for Sessions.  And THAT ZH'ers is how shit is done.

Duc i applaud your loyalty/faith, however, not many of us want to see President Trump fail, in fact, if he'd said 'Fuck You Deep State ' and sat down with Russia and China to put some sanity back into Geopolitics, then we'd all be doing somersaults! With his Base, fair-minded folks in US, Governments of Russia & China and most of the EU/ROW, Intellectuals, Religious Institutions. PEOPLE, any attempt on his Life by Deep State would mean their Demise. Like Putin will, he'd go down in History as having cleaned the SWAMP. WIN/WIN Compromised or not, the World's on the Brink and he's behaving in a rather gung-ho manner, in order to what, save a Lost Cause, the Power & Privilege of the current World Order/Elite. The US needs to take its Medicine and find its own place in the NWO. We're Beyond Fence-Sitting.

Duc888's picture



I actually do not want to see Trump fail either.  He's in a den of vipers and back stabbers.  He has to pick his battles wisely.  He will win some.  He will lose some.  I stand behind him for his SCOTUS pics as well as the many other Federal judges he is seeding throughout USA who will have a LASTING impact on how our lives will unfold LONG after he is gone.  He's not too shabby on the Second Amendment either.

Just as Reagan was neutralized early on, and WH was lead by ex-CIA chief Bush Sr

So too Trump was neutralized and WH is run by MIC/Goldman et al .

Trump is like the Nobel Peace Prize winner and HRC on steroids in respect to foreign affairs.

Dotard is chomping on the bit to start another war.  Putin, Xi and Kim all want to talk this out but the negotiator in chief doesn't want to do that as he feels he is superior to everyone.

Bush played the same game and Afghanistan and Iraq paid dearly as he accused Saddam of trying to "kill his daddy'

Obama expanded the playbook.

Now Russia and NK are in the cross hairs, maybe Turkey is too.

Meanwhile Israel and Saudi Arabia are jumping in the streets for joy as big bro with the orange hair is behind them all the way.

And Americans feel comfortable with this stuff?

The Nork shit is just a shit show.  Trump is headed off to Asia soon.  TPTB over there will let him know what he will be allowed to do regarding the Norks...there might be a regional fart fest with some shit flying for a few weeks but there is no WWIII scheduled so relax and just watch the show.  The real interesting thing will be Trump discussing with China,  the terms of US Bankruptcy.  China wants gold at 6K.

You may be right, we have seen it before, but then again they did go into those countries and killed a hell of a lot of people.  One day someone is going to hit back and hard.

If my loved ones were murdered by foreigners who have no business there, I would be looking for an equalizer.

Again, USA is a corporation largely run by MIC.  Illegally invading and trashing countries as we see in Syria is nothing more than a jobs program.  Cheney owns a LOT of fucking stock in the company that wants to run a pipeline through Syria.

As you've mentioned I'd also agree we've pissed off more then a few million people over there and all it takes are some asshats like Saudi Arabia to set up madrasses and radicalise them and "poof" there you go, instant future terrorists.  Can't hardly blame them

The up vote for your idealism, but entire internet is being censored of any comment critical of Israel, ziocons etc. zero h. hedge is one of last free speech sites. Facebook controls comments in over 350,000 sites, Google is censoring too, not as bad as Facebook but it is slow and methodical. The level of censoring on Facebook, Yahoo, Disques, and others is an industry wide end of freedom of speech, it was one of last freedoms to be taken. I'm old, and most can't remember or never knew America before. This is a Zionist totalitarian dictatorship. It is in the open and easy to compare with America before extreme controls. Young born into this have no idea, even historical evidence of the past is being erased. Zionism is a communist dictatorship ruled by Jews. It is International Communism, the long term goal is one world government, one world bank, one world currency and one world religion of worship of the state ruled by a uber rich Jewish tribal elite. All money and knowledge is being moved up into fewer and fewer hands. It is a generational take down of America and freedom. 50% of billionaires are Jewish and Kristol told the plan of moving all wealth and knowledge into fewer hands nearly 12 years ago at LBJ school, only one student stood and said it's not right, he was grabbed and dragged out. You're being grabbed and dragged out of internet debate everyday. No longer is free of speech allowed in Zionist controlled America. In other words, this is no longer America.

Are you a Jew, well what do you think of Israel admittedly enabling genocide of over 500K Syrian Christians? Israel admitted creating Syrian terrorist army, over 500K Christians murdered with help of Israel. Can't you debate this or is censoring the truth your answer?

The truth hit a nerve. Not one mention of Nazi, only your whine. LOL Nazi or national socialism is a form of communism. If anyone is a Nazi, it's the Zionist. Are you a Zionist? Are the Arabs Semetic? Are the 500K murdered Syrian Christians Semetic? yes and you use semetic because of your programmed racism. And most if not all of the Jews are not semetic/ origin is Eastern Europe, and original region was Khazaria, in other words, Khazars and too many know the truth. So the ant-semetic accusation is used by racist against REAL SEMETIC Arabs because of racism. And, the word Jew is a place name in Bible not a people. But keep parroting your programming and no critical thinking allowed. Right/all critical questions and thought must be censored. SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE A NAZI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL
