US continues to ‘stab Russia in the back’ with Syrian offensives — RT Op-Edge

RT: The US has said that in the wake of the incident [the shooting down of the Syrian plane] they will be relocating their air force in Syria. Where might they relocate to?

RS [Rick Sterling, Syria Solidarity Movement member] : I am not sure. What we know is that the US is saying one thing but we have to take their words with a big grain of salt because they often do something totally different. The US will say that they respect Syrian sovereignty, but their actions are completely contrary to that right now. So, what we’ve got going on is a clear violation of international law, it is illegal to fund a proxy army attacking a sovereign state, it is illegal to fly over a state without authorization, and it is an obvious act of war and aggression to go into another country and shoot the army and shoot down the air force of the sovereign state…

The Russians have been saying all along that they want to work with their partners, the US, and Donald Trump ran on a campaign of working with Russia to defeat ISIS, but we keep having these stabs in the back. Last September we had an agreement, and the US forces ‘accidentally’ attacked Syrian forces near Deir ez-Zor instead of ISIS and that allowed ISIS to overrun that Syrian Army camp.”

fnhfal: This isn’t just “War in Syria”. This is the mass exodus of people from Yarmouk, a Palestinian refugee camp in Damascus that has been under siege by the Assad government and military since 2013.

Syria: Palestinians flee fighting in Yarmouk refugee camp - BBC News

“Unrwa spokesman Chris Gunness told the BBC that the situation in Yarmouk was extremely difficult.

‘We now have an intense armed conflict raging in the streets, people are cowering in their homes, too terrified to move,’ he said.

Some civilians have managed to leave. Unrwa confirmed that 94 civilians, including 43 women and 20 children, had escaped and been given humanitarian support.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in Damascus told the BBC that hundreds more had fled from this area of Damascus over the past two days.

A PLO spokesman said that two exits have been opened in the camp and that a rescue operation was being coordinated with the Syrian government and Palestinian factions inside Yarmouk.

Palestinian militiamen opposed to the Syrian government are thought to be leading the fight against IS militants in the camp, along with some Free Syrian Army fighters.

IS gunmen took over large areas of the camp on 1 April, in the group's first major attack near the heart of the Syrian capital.

According to Reuters news agency, IS posted photos of its fighters inside Yarmouk on Sunday.”

ISISが誕生した歴史,社会的な背景と理由

“イラク政府軍は、その規模の大きさに加え、サッダームフセイン時代に多くの特典を有していましたが、軍の解散後、その多くの将校が職を失いました。こうした軍の人々の11万人から16万人が、ISISが現在活動を行っている3つの州にいます。その3つの州は、ファルージャを中心都市とするアンバール、モスルを中心都市とするニナワ、そしてティクリートを中心都市とするサラーフッディーンです。とはいえ、イラク軍の元兵士の全てがISISに加わったわけではありませんが、この地域はISISの戦闘員を集めやすい地域となっています。
スンニー派の不満を抱く人々、この頃に多くの特典を失ったバース党の残党勢力、そしてシリアの過激派が、このISISの主なメンバーとなっています。イラクの政治、経済の舞台から遠ざけられたと感じているスンニー派、イラクの軍と治安機関の内部の裏切り、シーア派の政治的な流れの中の対立、これらにより、ISISは短期間で1500人のメンバーによって、2014年6月、大都市モスルを占領し、その後も急速に他の都市を占領していきました。
イラクの広範な地域、特に産油地域の占領は、ISISが独立した収入源を手にすることを可能にしました。ISISは、イラク北部の一部の州やシリアのラッカの石油を売却することで、莫大な収入を手に入れました。とはいえ、彼らの収入の一部は、イラクとシリアの政府や国民の財産の強奪と、地元の密輸業者や商人からの税金の徴収からまかなわれています。このような莫大な収入により、ISISは、闇市場や自由市場から、最新の武器を購入することができているのです”
