Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said that he is ready to cooperate with the US President-elect Donald Trump. This news can be pretty good given the fact that there is secret document floating around that shows ISIS got specific instruction not to attack U.S. aircraft! During US election season, WikiLeaks confirmed what many already suspected, that the US government, or at least certain members of it, were implicitly aiding the Islamic State – with Hillary Clinton even accepting millions from the very same governments who fund the jihadist group. Despite this, Mosul, an ISIS stronghold in Iraq, has been the target of a much-publicized US-Iraqi joint military campaign to liberate the city from their control.
Photographs were filtered by Sputnik Arabic journalists, who claimed US planes are constantly accused of blasting the Iraq military and supplying ISIS with “aid”.
A source told Sputnik: “It should be noted, that the competency to conduct airstrikes against Daesh in the Nineveh region lies [strictly] with planes of the international coalition led by the United States, which has repeatedly been accused of airstrikes on forces of the People’s Militia and the Iraqi military.
The document uncovered by a local militia instructs ISIS fighters not to target coalition aircraft in the area Credit – Sputnik Arabic>Recent developments suggest that the cooperation between ISIS and the US government goes both ways. Just days ago, the Nineveh Plain Protection Unit, a local Assyrian Christian militia, made an interesting discovery in the recently-liberated Iraqi city of Bakhdida, 19 miles (32 km) from the city of Mosul.
The militia acquired documents from a so-called ISIS “mobilization center,” which ISIS sets up in cities they control in order to mobilize the local population and train new recruits. One of the documents found there explicitly tells ISIS fighters not to attack US coalition aircraft. The document itself reads: “It is strictly forbidden to shoot down, using any weapons whatsoever, any aircraft that is in the air, no matter what height they are flying at, even if the aircraft lands on the rooftop of houses.” The decree was signed by local ISIS leader Abu Muawia.
Though the decree refers to all aircraft in the area, the only active military aircrafts in and around Mosul are US-coalition planes. If ISIS is so intent on holding onto Mosul in Iraq, why would they not try to defend their territory by any means necessary? Why are US coalition planes being excluded? The answer could lie in how coalition planes, tasked with hitting ISIS targets, are frequently accused of hitting local militias and the Iraqi military instead, making their continued incompetence (or complicity, depending on your perspective) useful to the jihadist group.
Mr. Trump has suggested withdrawing support for the Syrian rebels still fighting in eastern Aleppo, neighboring Idlib province and the south of the country, which could prove to tilt the war in the Syrian government’s favor finally.
Mr. Trump has also advocated changes to the current US-led coalition’s strategy in dealing with Isis. He memorably elaborated on his policy on the campaign trail last year, saying he would “bomb the s*** out of them.
So the solution to this problem is simple and Trump will try and fix that problem!
