(RINF) – These weapons have been around since 1970, upgraded over time for greater accuracy and destructive power.
ISIS was earlier supplied with shoulder-launched, man-portable, easy to operate, surface-to-air missiles (SAMS), able to down helicopters and low-flying aircraft. Perhaps terrorists in east Aleppo are getting them.
According to Russia General Sergei Rudskoi, they “continue receiving modern types of weapons, including” TOWs – indicating Washington wants endless war, not diplomatic conflict resolution.
At the same time, Moscow unilaterally declared an 8-hour humanitarian pause in Aleppo on October 20 – unlikely to be observed by US-supported terrorists.
“We are prepared to cease fire and ensure the unhampered access of medical personnel to the city and ensure the evacuation of injured and sick as soon as we get a request from humanitarian organizations,” Rudskoi explained.
“The Russian side is prepared to discuss any initiatives and proposals for a settlement in Aleppo.” US obstruction undermines its good faith efforts.
