What is the global counterterrorism strategy? Why is there a lack of international cooperation on fighting terrorism? Are unilaterally approved actions justified in tackling Syria crisis? RT asked UN Under-Secretary-General Jeffrey Feltman.
The US has sanctioned some 271 Syrians who Washington believes are involved in the research and production of chemical weapons. The move is yet another retaliatory measure for the Idlib incident which was pinned on Damascus without any investigation.
Tel Aviv remains so “neutral” in the Syrian conflict that even Islamic State terrorists have on at least one occasion “apologized” to Israel for mistakenly attacking IDF soldiers in the occupied Golan Heights, according to a former Israeli Defense Minister.
The safety of over 400,000 people in Raqqa, Syria, where US-backed Syrian opposition forces are bombing ISIS, is of "deep concern" to the UN. The offensive has resulted in "an escalating number of civilian deaths” as well as damage to vital civilian infrastructure, the organization added.
The US has never liberated a Middle Eastern country - ever. And the fear of the civilians in Mosul is understandable considering the indiscriminate carnage occurring there, Mike Raddie, editor, BSNews, human rights activist, told RT.
In a move that may affect the protracted Raqqa offensive, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists have “essentially moved” their so-called capital in Syria to the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor, Fox News reported, citing unnamed US defense officials.
