MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The attacks by the coalition planes near the Deir ez-Zor airport were first reported by the Syrian army earlier on Saturday. The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed the attacks saying Daesh started an offensive following the attacks.
"It [Daesh] could utilize this particular strike in order to do something, taking advantage of that to improve its position," al-Aridi said.
"The agreement between Russia and the United States has many gaps in it, especially in monitoring process and accountability issue. If there is real coordination on targeting Daesh and targeting terrorism sources, such things would not have happened. Why don't they expose the details of the agreement? And why not making it public? Everybody is perplexed about these things," Al-Aridi said.
