Coming just days after an Israeli airstrike against Syrian military positions under apparently false pretext, US sources claim that Syria has launched cross border strikes against ISIS positions inside Iraq.
The airstrikes connected with several targets inside Anbar province in Iraq, which is located on the Iraq/Syria border.
According to the Washington Post, Iraqi sources initially reported that the attacks were carried out by US drones but the Pentagon has denied any such strikes.
Subsequent reports stated that Syria is responsible for the airstrikes.
The airstrikes are said to have killed 50 people and injured over 130. Although it is unclear how many ISIS fighters were killed in the strike, the deaths and injuries are being seized upon by Western governments and their media mouthpieces who incessantly claim that the dead (or at least the majority of them) are innocent people.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf stated that “it wouldn’t be surprising” if Assad launched the attacks because he has launched attacks against marketplaces and civilians many times in the past. Of course, Harf made no mention of US carnage wreaked by drones, US military aircraft, and American soldiers in a number of different theatres. Nor did she make any attempt at reporting reality such as the fact that there has been absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Assad has launched attacks against civilian targets.
The Syria/Iraq border has been porous for some time with death squad fighters funded by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Britain, France, and NATO crossing into Syria in order to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad.
It should be pointed out that, at this point, it is still unclear as to who launched the airstrikes.
However, it should be remembered that the United States has been allegedly considering airstrikes in the area since the seizure of large swaths of Iraqi territory by ISIS. After the airstrikes in Anbar, the U.S. is now attempting to claim that bombing was never strategically viable.
We are still awaiting official word from the Syrian government regarding their position on the responsibility of the airstrikes.
