U.S. coalition has bombed 13 bridges in Deir Ezzor, to the benefit of terrorists

It's no use my making a comment. What can I say? My government is a sponsor of terrorists, have a nice day. But the head of Deir Ezzor (spelled maybe 100 different ways) province had plenty to say:

TEHRAN (FNA - October 8, 2016)- Governor-General of Deir Ezzur Mohammad Qadour al-Aynia expressed regret that the US-led coalition is bombing Euphrates bridges to the benefit of the terrorists in his province.

"The US-led coalition recently pounded 13 bridges over Euphrates river from al-Bu Kamal region to the borders of Raqqa under the pretext of cutting the ISIL's supply routes but destruction of these bridges was aimed at annihilation of Syria's infrastructures and the Deir Ezzur people would face more hardship for commuting between the villages on the two sides of the river," al-Aynia told FNA on Saturday.

He said that the ISIL now takes a lot of money from the Deir Ezzur villagers to transfer them with boats, adding that the US created a new source of revenue for the terrorists.

The US-led coalition fighter jets once again conducted air raids over Deir Ezzur province on Friday, destroying another key bridge in the North of the provincial capital.

The US-led Coalition aircraft targeted al-Syasia Bridge in the city of Deir Ezzur on Friday which resulted in the destruction of the largest bridge in the province.

Last Monday, local sources in Deir Ezzur said the US airstrikes had destroyed more bridges and supply routes in the province, adding that 50 civilians were killed in the attacks.

"50 civilians, including women and children, were killed in the US-led coalition airstrikes on Deir Ezzur," the sources said.

A number of bridges have been destroyed by the bombers of the US-led Coalition in Deir Ezzur province in recent weeks, which, according to prominent analysts and politicians, is the Washington strategy to prevent the Syrian Army and its allies' further advances in the fight against the ISIL terrorists.

Local sources in Deir Ezzur said last Sunday that the US planes pounded 7 bridges in the past four days.

The bridges on the Euphrates in al-Mayadeen, al-Bu Kamal, al-Ashara, al-Basira, al-Tarif and al-Nowam in the Eastern and Western countryside of Deir Ezzur were attacked before the airstrike on al-Abbas bridge on Sunday.

The US-led Coalition's airstrikes had also destroyed al-Shihan Bridge near al-Salhin neighborhood in al-Bokamal countryside and Tarif Bridge in the Western countryside of Deir Ezzur that extends between Deir Ezzur and Raqqa provinces late September.

The bombers had also destroyed al-Asharah Bridge that links the two banks of the Euphrates River in the Eastern part of the Deir Ezzur province, only few hours after demolishing al-Mayadin Bridge in the same month.

The warplanes of US-led coalition targeted the Syrian army troops near the city of Deir Ezzur on September 17, leaving over 90 military personnel dead and a hundred wounded.

Russia’s Defense Ministry confirmed a report by the Syrian state news agency that an ISIL offensive began right after Syrian Army positions were hit by the bombers of the US-led coalition.

The actions of the coalition “clearly paved the way for ISIL terrorists to attack the position and take control of it,” the agency said citing the General Command of the Army and Armed Forces.

The General Command called the bombing a “serious and blatant aggression” against Syrian forces, and said it was "conclusive evidence" that the US and its allies support ISIL terrorist group.

A day later, a military source disclosed that the ISIL launched attacks on the Syrian army positions in Deir Ezzur only 7 minutes after the US-led coalition's airstrikes.

The military source reiterated that the air and ground assault were highly coordinated.

A Syrian top official said the country's intelligence unit possesses an audio recording of a conversation between the ISIL group and the US military before the airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the Syrian army troops near Deir Ezzur on September 17.

The speaker of the People's Council of Syria, Hadiya Khalaf Abbas, said that after the US coalition's airstrikes on the government troops, US military directed terrorists' attack on the Syrian army.
