The Pentagon has responded to data on a shootout with the military of the Russian Federation in Syria

In December 2019, a single-member organization, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) from London, London, disseminated data about a fight between Russian and American military in Syria. Then the Ministry of Defense called this is a "primitive fake", and the Pentagon has not reacted at all. But the "democratic" public did not calm down and the fake overgrown with data on the shootout. After which the Pentagon could not stand it, deciding to put an end to this issue.

It should be noted that the mentioned NGO has a very dubious reputation. She has been repeatedly caught providing false information. Moreover, SOHR itself denied the information about the above fight.

Jonathan Hoffman, spokesman for the US military, commented on the "shootout." According to him, the US military has normal relations with the Russians, they maintain contacts and there is no misunderstanding between them. That is, a conflict prevention mechanism has been established between the parties.

We made clear to other countries and forces that are in the region where our forces are located. We work through conflict prevention channels to ensure that there is no misunderstanding, no accidental clashes. We keep doing it

said Hoffman.

I have no information regarding what you call a “shootout." I can only say that we are located where we were, and they know where we are

- specified Hoffman.

It should be recalled that the United States, allegedly to fight ISIS (a terrorist organization banned in Russia), illegally entered its troops into Syria in 2014. In December 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump announced his victory over ISIS and promised to withdraw the U.S. military from Syria.

The Americans did withdraw some of the troops, but this was influenced by the Turkish military operation "Spring of Peace" in the fall of 2019 in northern Syria, and not by the good will of Washington. Now the United States controls only small areas of western, northwestern and southwestern Syria. As Trump explained, the US military “guards the oil” needed by the Kurds.

    Just someone wants a US war - RUSSIA. But I still wonder how the United States from Syria, Putin and Lavrov will be expelled without war.

    Do you have a plan, Mr. FIX?

      Considering the experience of the Second World War and Vietnam - there is only one conclusion - the Syrians themselves must liberate themselves, for this we need to help them consolidate, train, arm the army, providing them with the opportunity to pay for our services so that it is not so insulting, because when the Americans flee, they will certainly write off : because of the Turks, Iranians, partisans, Americans performed international duty ...

        You do not confuse soft with warm. The Syrians themselves can not cope. Parallels with Vietnam, and even more so with the Second World War, are not appropriate.
        In Vietnam, 97 million people, and in Syria 17 million. Of which half went to Barmalei. The difference in opportunities between Vietnam and Syria is enormous. The Syrians are already trying their best. But the forces are unequal. And without outside help they will not stretch.
        Yes, and Vietnam without the help of the USSR and China would have lost.
