American jets hit targets in Syria on Tuesday in the US-led fight against Islamic State. Although the US has not declared war since 1942, this is the seventh country that Barack Obama, the holder of the Nobel Peace Prize, has bombed in as many years.
The US should change its approach “immediately” if it wants to fight terrorism and particularly ISIS, because airstrikes alone will not be effective, Syria’s foreign minister told RT Arabic. He also believes the US wants the Syrian crisis to continue.
As IS forces waged a campaign of fear sending thousands of Kurds fleeing into Turkey, Ankara managed to “free” its hostages held by the group in Iraq. Allegedly they were exchanged for Islamist prisoners. Does this indicate a Turkey’s new ISIS policy?
The Russian Foreign Ministry has said that those countries initiating one-sided military scenarios take international legal responsibility for their consequences. It comes as the US-led coalition begins its anti-ISIS strikes in Syria.
Many Americans are against the Senate authorizing Obama’s plan to aid Syrian rebels fighting Islamic State militants as they do not believe in Congress, which has its lowest approval rating in history, Media Channel editor Daniel Schechter told RT.
China will never support any sanctions against Russia and will never join them, Valentina Matviyenko, speaker of the Russian parliament’s upper house said, citing Chinese President Xi Jinping, with whom she met on Tuesday.
The Islamic State (ISIS, now known as IS) has released a new video in which its hostage, British journalist John Cantlie, criticizes US-led strikes against the extremist group in Syria and warned that western powers should have learnt from Vietnam.
Britain remains undecided as to whether it will join US and Arab coalition airstrikes against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) targets within Syria. Meanwhile, consensus is growing among UK MPs in support of Iraq strikes.
The US-led coalition is conducting airstrike assault on positions of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) organization on the territory of Syria. The strikes reportedly involve a mix of fighter, bomber and tomahawk land-attack missiles.
