‘US is defending ISIS’: Russia convenes UNSC meeting after US coalition strike on Syrian army

from RT

Moscow has called an urgent UN Security Council meeting after US-led coalition hit Syrian forces, killing 62 soldiers and wounding 100 more. The Russian FM spokeswoman blasted Washington over the indiscriminate airstrike that she said serves the interests of ISIS terrorists.

“We demand a full and detailed explanation from Washington. That explanation must be given at the UN Security Council,” Zakharova added.
