"The Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has published online photos of the seized humanitarian aid, intended for besieged Syrian troops in the city of Deir ez-Zor. Acording to terrorists, the aid was seized on Monday. The photos were posted by the IS Amaq news agency.
According to the published photos, terrorists managed to capture containers and fuel for Syrian military. Mistakenly, the cargo landed not in the city, but several kilometers to the north-west of it, on IS positions.
On Sunday, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria reported that Russian planes delivered more than 20 tons of humanitarian cargo to the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor. Perhaps, terrorists managed to seize some part of this supply." southfront
Some time back I suggested that in a long series of supply drops by parachute into a perimeter like Deir al-Zor some would end up outside the perimeter in enemy hands. At the time I was assured that modern guided cargo parachutes would prevent this. This made the old turcopolier feel sad and obsolete. But, now, we have this picture of a pallet of fuel drums. IS took the picture. The turcopolier feels better about himself. pl
