BREAKING: Russia denies Kurdish reports of strike on SDF

The Russian Defense Ministry has said that earlier reports of Russian attacks on US proxy SDF forces in Deir ez-Zor are false.

This comes as the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia described the earlier killing of Russian Lieutenant-General Valery Asapov in the following way,

“The death of the Russian commander is the price paid with blood for the hypocrisy of American policy in Syria”.

As The Duran reported earlier today,

“Local Kurdish language media in Syria have reported that both the Russian Aerospace Forces and the Syrian Arab Air-force have bombed positions of the Kurdish led US proxy militia SDF, in Deir ez-Zor, as originally reported in English by Al-Masdar.

While the reports are not yet confirmed by Syria or Russia, the Russian Defense Ministry recently stated that if the Kurdish led US proxy militia SDF continues to attack Syrian and Russian positions, Russia would not hesitate to target the SDF. Syria has also said that they will target the SDF as an enemy force if they continue to prevent the liberation of Syrian territory by the Syrian Arab Army.

Today’s unconfirmed reports from Kurdish media also comes less than 24 hours after the Russian Defense Ministry released photos showing battlefield collusion between ISIS, SDF and US special forces in Deir ez-Zor.

Yesterday, Russia confirmed the death of  Lieutenant-General Valeriy Asapov, who was martyred in Deir ez-Zor after his position was shelled by ISIS terrorists.

While the story of Russia and Syria targeting the SDF is still unconfirmed, the story is similar to a previous report wherein, Russia shelled ISIS positions in Deir-ez Zor and hit SDF fighters. This was yet another sign of battle field collusion between the SDF and ISIS. The onl way that SDF fighters could have been hit in the previous attack, is if they were in the same positions as ISIS fighters. Today’s events could be a similar scenario.

There has not yet  been a comment on the matter from Syria.

US has lost in Syria. Whatever they do here on is “retaliation” for humiliation and loss of face, even deliberate targeted attacks on Russian Generals and service personals like this one.

Judging from their previous killing spree on Russian officials earlier this year, they are no stranger to it and will go on until Russia responds in kind by bumping off US hot shots not just in Syria but anywhere.

We do not know how many Mossad and CIA chiefs were exterminated in the Special Ops confrontation in which the bad guys lost near a thousand, and the GOOD GUYS had three or four wounded.

The Kurds were remiss in rejecting the possibility of joining Assad to preserve Syria’s sovereignty. Instead they have allied with Israel and the US which will ensure that a so-called Kurdish state will be subordinate to US/Israel interest–this at the expense of Kurds, of course.

The only thing America will understand is retribution. If Russia lacks the will to strike at the Americans there is no down side for the US, and they will continue to murder Russian heroes, and walk away laughing.

R.I.P. Lieutenant-General Valeriy Asapov,

“Ami, si tu tombes, un ami sort de l’ombre à ta place,
Demain du sang noir séchera au grand soleil sur nos routes
Chantez, compagnons, dans la nuit la liberté nous écoute.”
