Russia releases footage of US forces deployed at ISIS sites in Deir Ezzor
The Russian Defense Ministry posted aerial footage showing US equipment deployed at ISIS positions north of Deir Ezzor city.
In a post on its Facebook page, the Ministry said US Special Operations Forces units enable US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) units to smoothly advance through the ISIS formations.
Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir Ezzor.
“The aerial photographs, taken on September 8-12, 2017 in the areas of Daesh troops’ deployment, detected a big number of US Hummer armored vehicles, used by the US Army’s special forces,” the ministry wrote on its Facebook page.
The Defense Ministry added that the footage clearly showed that the units of US Army’s special forces were deployed in the footholds previously set up by ISIS militants. However, no signs of ongoing clashes with terrorists, as well as shell craters left after the coalition’s airstrikes were seen.
Despite the strongholds of the US armed forces being located where Daesh militants are currently deployed, there are not even signs of the organization of a battle outpost. This shows that all the US servicemen who are currently there, feel completely safe in the areas under the terrorists control,” the ministry outlined.
