Syrian political analyst Salim Ali tells Sputnik why the US doesn’t want to see a strong and united Syria cooperating with Russia, and what Washington is willing to do to try and stop that from happening.

Reports continue to come out of Syria on the deaths of civilians as a result airstrikes by the US-led anti-Daesh coalition. Late last month, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported that 45 civilians were killed and 50 more injured following a coalition attack on the town of al-Ghandour outside Manbij, northwest Syria. Earlier, coalition forces bombed Tuhan al-Kubra, accidentally killing and injuring over three hundred non-combatants.

Amid the string of Western bombings accidentally striking civilian areas, the Syrian Foreign Ministry wrote an official appeal to the UN general secretary and the president of the UN Security Council condemning the bombings and reminding the world community of Western, Turkish and Persian Gulf nations’ support for terrorist organizations inside Syria.

On August 4, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated that US and coalition forces had launched over 90 attacks against populated areas since the start of operations near Manbij on July 19, killing hundreds and injuring literally thousands of civilians, ‘by the most conservative estimates’.
