U.S. Says Russian Use Of Iranian Base “Unfortunate”

Tehran and Moscow are sharing facilities and potential to fight against terrorism. Two sides stressed the importance of closer consultation between Iran and Russia on ways to the crisis in Syria.
Russians warplanes have conducted missions over Syria from an airbase in Iran – the first time a major power has done since the Islamic Revolution there in 1979. Tu-22M3 long-range bombers and Su-34 tactical bombers took off from Hamegan airbase in western Iran Tuesday. The Russian Defense Ministry claimed the August 16 air strikes successfully hit targets including arms depots and training camps belonging to ISIS and the Jabhat al-Nusra militant group in three northern Syrian provinces. In fact the use of the Iranian base would save fuel and enlarge bomb loads.
The United States says this cooperation is “unfortunate”. The U.S. authorities often accuse Russian military operation in Syria of using incendiary weapons in civilian areas in violation of international law. This case isn’t unique one. The American government says targets were hit in Aleppo, Idlib and Deir al-Zour provinces and the main result is – allegedly 27 civilians died. The Russian Defense Ministry denied any civilians were killed.
As usual America acts as general prosecutor criticizing and accusing other countries of numerous victims. But, in fact, what it has done? Nothing. The only country is helping Syria is Russia. US airstrikes killed at least 103 civilians in northern Syria, a majority of them women and children. Its air strikes destroy hospitals, schools and mosques. They don’t fight against terrorists, they fight against citizens. They bring nothing but the destruction. So the main question is “Whose operation is unfortunate?”.
