Dari 20 serangan Rusia, hanya satu yang menargetkan ISIS

REFILE - ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONA frame grab taken from footage released by Russia's Defence Ministry September 30, 2015, shows precise airstrikes carried out by the country's air force on Wednesday, against Islamic State (IS) ground positions in a mountainous area in Syria. Russian air strikes in Syria are targeting a list of well-known militant organisations, not only Islamic State, the Kremlin said on Thursday, a day after the launch of its aerial campaign opened up a volatile new phase in the conflict. Moscow had previously framed its campaign as primarily aimed at Islamic State militants, saying it feared Russian and other ex-Soviet citizens who belong to the group would shift their focus to their home countries if they were not stopped in Syria. But on Thursday, after the United States and rebels on the ground suggested Russian strikes had so far not focused on Islamic State, it said its operation was pitched more broadly.

SURIAH (Arrahmah.com) – Hanya satu dari 20 serangan udara Rusia di Suriah yang menargetkan ISIS, kata Menteri Pertahanan Inggris, Michael Fallon, Sabtu (3/10/2015).

Intelijen Inggris mengamati hanya 5% dari serangan Rusia yang menyerang kelompok militan, sebagian besar “membunuh warga sipil”, Fallon mengatakan kepada surat kabar The Sun.

“Kami menganalisis di mana serangan dilakukan setiap pagi,” katanya kepada surat kabar itu. “Sebagian besar tidak menyerang ISIS sama sekali.”

“Bukti kami menunjukkan mereka menjatuhkan amunisi ke wilayah sipil, membunuh warga sipil, dan mereka menjatuhkan amunisi kepada FSA yang memerangi Assad. Rusia mendukung Assad dan mengabadikan penderitaan,” lanjut Fallon.

Pada Rabu (30/9), Rusia memulai serangan udara pertamanya di Suriah, dan mengklaim bahwa mereka menargetkan kelompok “Daulah Islamiyah”, atau Islamic State (IS), yang sebelumnya dikenal sebagai ISIS.

Padahal, serangan-serangan Rusia tersebut justru menargetkan wilayah sipil dan menewaskan puluhan warga sipil, termasuk anak-anak tak berdosa.

Meskipun Rusia mencoba membantah hal tersebut dan mengatakan bahwa semua laporan itu hanyalah dalam rangka perang informasi, kenyataannya memang seperti itulah yang terjadi. Alih-alih menyerang ISIS, Rusia justru membunuh rakyat sipil di Suriah.
