Syrians security source slammed a statement, previously made by the US officials that Russian side deliberately halts Syrian Army’s progress against ISIS.

The source said these rumours are nothing but blatant lies, showing hypocrisy of the Americans, adding that Syrian army has full authority to extend its presence and carry out operations within the sovereign Syrian land, reminding that the American side has no right to interfere in affairs of the Syrian state.

The source further added that Syrian Army has the right to respond to any form of foreign aggression or interference.

The source also confirmed that new agreement between Syria, Iran and Russia about making further efforts against ISIS in sparsely populated regions of Syria between Palmyra and the Iraqi border, has been reached.

Yesterday, jets, belonging to the US-led “anti-ISIS” coalition, struck the convoy, consisting of Syrian Army soldiers, NDF, Hezbollah and Imam Al Ali Battalion. 6 persons were killed and 2 tanks were destroyed during the raid.
