Khaled Khoja, the president of the main Syrian exile opposition group, accused Mr. Assad of deploying his warplanes “as an air force for ISIS.”

“Reports indicate that the regime is making airstrikes in support of #ISIL’s advance on #Aleppo, aiding extremists against Syrian population,” the embassy said in a series of Twitter posts. In another post, it added that government warplanes were “not only avoiding #ISIL lines, but actively seeking to bolster their position.”


Assad’s Forces May Be Aiding New ISIS Surge

Assad showing his true colors and siding with Islamic State.

The big question is, does this now officially make Islamic State a Russian proxy?

They are doing the bidding of Assad by wiping out the rebels that seek to topple him. Assad is aiding Islamic State's troop movements and only hitting their opposition with an air force Islamic State is totally without. From their first appearance in Syria's civil war they were dividing Assad's opposition so that it could never coalesce into one force opposing Assad. This all protects the interests of Russia in the region by keeping their stool pigeon in place in Syria.

Will Assad's airforce get wiped from the sky over this by US air power? Maybe not now but when do nothing Obama is out of office?

Conspiracies are only allowed to contain the US as the perpetrator, did you not get the memo?

I doubt Russia is behind ISIS, most likely Assad just thinks he is better off letting his 2 enemies fight and then clean them both up after.

Well well. Obviously a stand up guy with no personal axe to grind.

The main Syrian exile opposition group would be those that have the backing of the West and Saudis and are fighting the Syrian army.

Yeah, very believable stuff.

And it is written by an upstanding newspaper in the West. They too are likely to be upstanding citizens.

Just the headline alone tells you all you need to know about this pile of bullcrap.

He is not "letting them fight", he is actively supporting one side militarily by using his airforce only against the moderate rebel forces and allowing Islamic state safe passage to form up battle lines under his air cover. These maneuvers do not happen by chance, there has to be coordination.

If Obama would provide air cover for the rebels he claims to be actively supporting, Assad's planes would have to be swept from the sky and they easily could be. His pal Putin who he promised things to (remember the open mic?) after Obama's last reelection wouldn't like that though.

There have been reports of Russia withdrawing their presence in Syria (advisors etc).. The reasoning was not to clear however if Assad is doing this then maybe Russia is trying to avoid blowback from Assads actions. I think Assad sees he is finished as leader of Syria and is going to cause as much damage as he can before the end.

And my post was saying he doesn't want to fight them both. Support ISIS and let them wipe out the rebels, then try to fight ISIS, better than fighting both from his POV.

So by causing as much damage as he can what exactly is gained? Or have you just been taught that Assad is An evil doer devoid of a soul and so he doesn't behave like humans behave and is basically the joker from the batman movies.

what part of doing as much damage as he can do you not understand? Hitler did the same thing at the end of his government. In his views Hitler felt the German people betrayed him and got what was coming to them. Assad thinks the same and has demonstrated that by killing his own civilians.

Whoa is that some history you just made up? Hitler didn't "go out with a bang", he ignored his generals and made just about every mistake he could make.

But nvm, Assad is evil and is basically Hitler from the batman movies.

Learn history then come back and engage. Your response to my point demonstrates you are not as up to speed as you think.

Except it was proven by UN observers. just as they have proven the rebels have used similar gas attacks on Assad forces.

So no its not a lie but nice try.

United Nations Mission to Investigate Allegations of the Use of Chemical Weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic Report on the Alleged Use of Chemical Weapons in the Ghouta Area of Damascus on 21 August 2013 Note by the Secretary-General

UNSC Syria - June 2015 Monthly Forecast


Ongoing issues include how to get agreement to follow up on the violations of resolutions 2139, 2165 and 2191 on the humanitarian situation and 2118 and 2209 on chemical weapons—in particular aerial bombardment and the use of chlorine bombs.

Options

While the Council has many tools at its disposal—such as imposing an arms embargo or targeted sanctions, referring Syria to the ICC and authorising a no-fly zone to deter Syria from using its aerial capacity—P5 divisions have made it impossible for the Council to fulfil its role in maintaining international peace and security in the case of Syria. While some feel that such action might be the leverage the Council requires to shift the parties’ priorities towards a negotiated solution, the Council has a history of not escalating pressure in the midst of other sensitive processes, such as the political consultations de Mistura is facilitating and the ongoing P5+1 negotiations on the Iran nuclear file.



Report reaffirms Syria chemical weapons use

maybe next time you should try reading the information.

Please point out what airforce the rebels have.

Is this how you operate.. Refuse to read because the information doesn't support the story your trying to push?

Ohh but I did.



The 117-page report offers the most detailed findings to date regarding the use of chemical weapons in Syria, but does not say which side used them.


And I get that about the only explanation you need is "its Assad because helicopters" but why can't terrorists get helicopters?
