CNN - Politics: Reports " For the first time, Iraqi fighter jets carried out airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria, according to a statement issued Friday by Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, and Iraq's Joint Operation Command. "
Lets Get Real:
As the above article notes the attack was agreed by the Assad Government, thus this rises the question was the US part of the process, if so the Russians must have been informed. Thus back again to the question of the links between the Trump Administration and Russia. One can discount the theory that Iraq would have taken action without at least the US knowing about the attacks, there are a lot of planes flying in Syria these days, for security and operational information the US must have know, it will be interesting if reporters can get the White House to make a comment. Is the US Government having secret back channel talks with Assad through Russia ? Syria get more complicated every day.
