In a stunning allegation, one which would lead to dramatic geopolitical implications, the speaker of the People’s Council of Syria said on Monday that the Syrian intelligence possesses an audio recording of conversation between Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists and the US military taken just prior to the Washington-led coalition’s airstrikes on the government troops near Deir ez-Zor on September 17 which left over 60 Syrian troops dead.
As reported last weekend, coalition warplanes hit Syrian government troops near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor on September 17, leaving 62 military personnel killed and a hundred wounded. The Pentagon said initially that the airstrike was a mistake and targeted ISIS militants. Britain, Australia and Denmark confirmed their air forces’ participation in the deadly airstrikes.
“The Syrian Army intercepted a conversation between the Americans and Daesh before the air raid on Deir ez-Zor”, Hadiya Khalaf Abbas said as quoted by the Al Mayadeen broadcaster.
