. refuses to publish the details of the agreement with Russia about the
ceasefire in Syria
. has done nothing over the last days to separate, as promised, the
"moderate rebels" it supports in Syria from al-Qaeda
. today bombed a Syrian army position in support of an Islamic State
attack in Deir Ezzor.
Details of the last attack:
"Today at 17:00-17:50 Moscow time, international anti-Daesh coalition (two
F-16 and two A-10 jets) carried out four strikes on Syrian government
forces' units encirled by Daesh near Deir ez-Zor airport. The coalition's

reinforcements. Government forces have launched a counterattack to regain
the vital position.
At the same time the Israeli air force attacked Syrian positions in the
Golan height after al-Qaeda lobbed a mortar towards Israeli forces signaling
the need for support.
This has become the official format of Israeli support for al-Qaeda in the
area with Israel claiming that the Syrian army is responsible for any and
all attacks from the Syrian side no matter who initiates them.
Intense attacks from inside the surrounded, al-Qaeda occupied east-Aleppo on
Syrian government positions were launched in the late afternoon local time.
Fighting there is ongoing.
