USA security services behind Al Nusra offensive in Syria's Idlib - Russian MoD”

"Aircraft were delivering strikes on terrorists, the unit breaking the encirclement was supported by two Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft that attacked militants and their armored vehicles from extremely low altitudes".

The Russian Defense Ministry says that, according to their data, an offensive launched by Al Nusra terrorists and their allies in Syria was orchestrated by the USA security services, aiming at derailing the Syrian Army operation near Deir ez-Zor.

"In the current extreme conditions, Commandeer of the Russian forces in Syria Colonel General Sergei Surovikin has formed a de-blocking group", he said. As a result, the encirclement was broken and the Russian troops entered the area occupied by the Syrian government forces.

The Syrian government-affiliated Central Military Media outlet acknowledged the opposition offensive in Idlib and said that forces responded with intensive air strikes and shelling, killing a number of fighters.

Russian Federation has already deployed military police to the other three de-escalation zones - Eastern Ghouta near Damascus, parts of the south and some areas of the central province of Homs.

"According to our intelligence data, the offensive was instigated by the U.S. security services to stop the successful advance of the government forces to the east of the [city of] Deir ez-Zor", the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement, commenting on the incident.

The fighting comes just days after Iran, Russia and Turkey announced they would jointly police the de-escalation zone in Idlib and parts of adjacent Hama and Latakia provinces.

The offensive was launched by the militant group formerly called Al-Nusra Front and its allies on Tuesday morning, a statement from the General Staff said. He said Jabhat al-Nusra militants had mounted a large-scale offensive against Syrian troops in the de-escalation zone Idlib.

A Russian military police unit of 29 personnel was encircled as the militants sought to capture it and was repelling the attacks for several hours together with a local tribe that had signed a cease-fire agreement.
