    Russia: US actions in Syria's Al-Tanf amount to war crimes

    November 3, 2017 - Fort Russ News - Paul Antonopoulos



    Russia’s Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria told reporters on Friday that the refusal for the US to help injured refugees near al-Tanf on October 29 can be considered a war crime.



    "In the skirmish there, 13 Syrian refugees were killed, another 20, including children, were injured. The US did not offer any medical assistance to the injured refugees. Actually, all those injured are doomed. Such actions of the US military and the so-called international coalition near al-Tanf constitute a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and can be qualified as a war crime," the center said in a statement.

    "The US advisors are putting together another "moderate opposition" - the National Syrian Army, which is based on groups from Lions of the East, Kuwat Shahid Ahmad Abdu and Liwa Shuhada al-Karyatein," the center said.

    "Noteworthy, the US advisors directly bargain with the militants’ field commanders to negotiate the cost of enrolling every group. As a result, the revenues of the one particular group of militants may lavishly differ," the center said. "This difference was the reason of a major armed confrontation between the militants of the Liwa Suhada al-Karyatein and the Lions of the East, where 13 Syrian refugees were killed and another 20 people - including children - were injured in the skirmish."
