“Kobani is a Syrian town attacked by terrorists. We seek to fulfill our duty towards its population,” the Syrian diplomat said. “Our aircraft are pounding IS positions more efficiently that the coalition, by the way,” he added.
“Fight is underway throughout Syria, and the Syrian army carries out its duties at a high level,” the ambassador added.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said earlier that the Syrian air force makes over 159 air strikes a day while the coalition's opportunities are limited to 10-15 or even 5-7 strikes a day. That is why, the spokesman says, the fact that Washington is determined in its refusal to recognize Bashar Assad’s government as an ally in the fight against terrorism is surprising. These statements came after the IS militants seized caches of weapons airdropped by the US air force for Kurdish units.
