A former US official, critical of the strikes on Syria, is pointing out that the US is acting as the air force for ISIS. Adding credence to the claim is the report that terrorist groups inside Syria coordinated attacks with the US-led strikes.

Washington, D.C. – The United States, France and the UK engaged in limited missile strikes against civilian and military targets in Syria overnight resulting in the immediate benefit of terrorist groups operating inside the country. The bombing without any investigation has prompted widespread bipartisan backlash from all political sects.

The United States is “acting as air force of all these jihadist terrorist [groups] – Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham,” former U.S. foreign service officer Jim Jatras told RT on Saturday, adding that “it’s really morally reprehensible.”

What’s more, Al Masdar News reported that ISIS and forces mounted offensives in coordination with the western missile strikes:

The Islamic State (ISIS) attempted to take advantage of the US-led attack on Syria today in order to capture new areas inside the southern districts of Damascus.

However, this offensive would be short-lived, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their Palestinian allies were able to beat back the encroaching terrorists.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Islamic State had attempt to catch the Syrian Army off guard with the attack, but were completely overwhelmed by the latter’s manpower and firepower.

The Syrian Arab Army is now preparing to launch an offensive in southern Damascus alongside their Palestinian allies.

The goal of this southern Damascus offensive is to capture all of the areas currently controlled by the Islamic State.

Additionally, Jatras said, “preventing a real investigation in Douma was one of the reasons for [the strike],” as it prevented chemical inspectors from the UN’s Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), on the ground in Damascus, from reaching the site of the alleged chemical attack.

Only hours before inspectors from the OPCW was scheduled to visit Douma—to determine if chemical weapons had been used—the missile strikes began.

“So, the big hurry here is, in my opinion, is that you’ve got [OPCW] inspectors on the ground in Damascus now, ready to go now and confirm… there wasn’t any attack,” said Jatras.

The former U.S. diplomat made note that “if you’re Al-Qaeda or its offshoot [in Syria], you’re going to be very happy tonight,” labeling the alleged chemical attack in Douma a “false flag” operation, and explaining that false flag operations “work, especially when you have compliant media.”
