Syria Conflict: Russia's action in Syria forcing moderates to extremists - U.S.


The U.S. says Russia's increasing military action in Syria is forcing moderates within the opposition into the hands of extremists.

But Russia has accused America of trying to spare a Jihadist group in its bid to oust Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad.

The US says it may end co-operation with Russia over its action in Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the US had broken its promise to separate the powerful Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly known as al-Nusra Front) and other extremist groups from more moderate rebels.
Mr Toner said the Russian allegations were “absurd”. He told reporters that the US had not targeted al-Nusra for months because they had become “intermingled” with other groups and civilians.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the US had broken its promise to separate the powerful Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly known as al-Nusra Front) and other extremist groups from more moderate rebels.
State department spokesman Mark Toner said the Russian allegations were "absurd". He told reporters the US had not targeted al-Nusra for months because they had become "intermingled" with other groups and civilians.
He said a recent attack on an aid convoy, which the US blames on Russia, and renewed air strikes on the city of Aleppo were driving moderate rebel groups closer to the extremists.

He said a recent attack on an aid convoy, which the US blames on Russia, and renewed air strikes on Aleppo were driving moderate rebel groups closer to the extremists.
“What has happened now, with the hitting of the humanitarian convoy and with the subsequent siege on Aleppo, you've got a scenario now, a dynamic where, as these moderate opposition forces are under increasing pressure from the regime, that they are driven into the arms [of al-Nusra], and they have to fight side by side,” he said.
“It escalates, and makes more confusing, what is already a difficult situation.”
On Friday, Syrian government forces and rebels fought in the centre of Aleppo and north of the city, a week into the Russian-backed offensive by the Syrian army to take the city and surrounding area.
Monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and a Syrian military official said government forces had captured territory north of Aleppo and buildings in the city centre, but rebel sources denied this.
Mr Lavrov made his claims of US broken promises during an interview on BBC World News TV on the first anniversary of the beginning of the Russian air campaign in Syria.
