Former Turkish Consul to Mosul Aydin Selcen commented to Sputnik on the recent airstrike by a US-led coalition against Syrian forces near Deir ez-Zor.

According to the diplomat, the attack cannot be justified as a “mistake.” By conducting the airstrike, the Pentagon, which is opposing the Moscow-Washington agreement on Syria, tried to sabotage the deal.

“It was also a signal to other regional players to show what kind of ‘mistakes’ the US could do,” he added.

“Taking into account my work in Iraq and analysis of the recent developments in Syria, I can say that the airstrike is unlikely to have been done by a mistake,” Selcen said.

In fact, Russia raised a question on who is controlling US policy – the White House or the Pentagon.

“We know that the US military has opposed the ceasefire deal with Russia on Syria. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that this agreement violated the law. This looked like a mutiny within the US government. As I see, the Pentagon made an attempt to sabotage the agreement and undermine Moscow-Washington cooperation before it even started,” the diplomat said.
