THIS IS THE THIRD WARNING FROM THE US STATE DEPT IN PAST 2 WEEKS. THEY TOLD RUSSIA THAT ASSAD SHOULD NOT START MILITARY OPS IN AN AREA UNDER CEASEFIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN US-RUSSIA-JORDAN BUT ASSAD JUST STARTED THE ASSAULT
US warns Russia, Syria on cease-fire violations
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert says the U.S. remains “deeply troubled” by reports of “increasing Syrian regime operations” within the boundaries of the truce. She says U.S. reports show that Assad’s forces and militias have violated the cease-fire with airstrikes, rocket attacks and artillery.
Nauert says the U.S. demands that Russia “restrain” Assad’s forces from further action in the zone covered by the truce. She says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo relayed that message to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov by phone over the weekend.
