Russian Warplanes Fly First Joint Mission With US-Coalition Aircraft Kremlin Says, Pentagon Denies
[/url]
According to the Russian Defense Ministry, [url=http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/russian-defense-ministry-warplanes-flown-combat-mission-syria-44988439]cited by AP
, Russian warplanes have flown their first combat mission in Syria with U.S.-led coalition aircraft. Russian Interfax added that various ISIS storage facilities, and militants were eliminated in the "joint strike":
  • ISIL STORAGE FACILITIES, MILITANTS ELIMINATED IN JOINT STRIKE CONDUCTED BY RUSSIAN AEROSPACE FORCES, INTL COALITION FORCES IN SYRIA, WITH COORDINATES RECEIVED FROM U.S. - RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY. IFX.
However, the report was promptly denied by the Pentagon after spokesman Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway told reporters Monday that “there is no military-to-military coordination for airstrikes over targets in Syria,” Pentagon. Instead what appears to have happened is that U.S.-led coalition and Russia have communicated to prevent unforseen incidents, a process known as “deconflicting.”

This however is also suspect, because earlier in the day Sputnik reported that Russia had received coordinates of Daesh targets in Al-Bab, Aleppo Province, from the US via the 'direct line,' according to the Russian Defense Minsitry said Monday. The United States has provided coordinates of the terrorists' targets in the city of Al-Bab in Aleppo province for Russian airstrikes. After the reconaissance check, Russia and two coalition jets have conducted joint airstrikes on the Daesh targets in the region.
