Guess who got the aid dropped by the US over Dair al-Zoor?

Not the civilians under siege nor the Syrian Army units defending them!

ISIS terrorists did.

This is what happens when the international committee in general and the US in particular think they are too smart to coordinate with the Syrian Armed Forces.

According to Stephen O’Brien the US Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator the containers landed in their designated, and planned locations.

So its one of two, either the US and international committee are clueless of what’s going on on the ground, or they simply planned the aid to be dropped in ISIS locations.

To be honest, only two of the airdropped containers reach Syrian Army controlled neighborhoods; and according to our sources on the ground, both were damaged at different levels, even the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs announced later that two containers which landed in Syrian government secured territories were damages, while the other containers landed in “different locations that planned” in an effort to correct their mess up and not say ISIS controlled locations.

Inexcusable, the US mess up, and the Syrian Army has to clean it up.
