Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov reminded that Pentagon had repeatedly declared that the job of the American, British and Norwegian experts at their base in Al Tanf border area was to train the fighters of the so-called “Revolutionary Commando Army” and prevent ISIS attacks, although the area itself has actually turned into a 100-kilometer ISIS black hole on the Syrian-Jordanian border area.

“The more progress the Syrian Armed Forces, supported by the Russian Air Force, make against ISIS in the eastern countryside of Deir Ez Zour, the more intense the counter-attacks of ISIS and other terrorist groups against the Syrian Forces become”, the Ministry spokesman said, noting that Al Tanf area is being used as a platform for the terrorists to carry out attacks against the Syrian Army and the civilian population.

“The refugees in Al Rikban camp are in fact human shields for the American base in Al Tanf”, Konashenkov said, adding that the US-led forces are preventing access of humanitarian aid to the camp.

Although the American base on the Syrian-Jordanian border area of Al Tanf is supposed to be carrying out series of intense counter-terrorist operations, nobody there has actually lifted a finger against the terrorists in the past 6 months.
