The USA has forced the Serbian government and military that Serbian de-mining experts will not be deploying to Syria to assist in removing the ubiquitous horrific mines and other explosive devices left behind by coalition partner ISIS.
As the holocaust by ISIS forces continues in Syria, the civilian population begins returning to their homes and their lives that had been disrupted by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other extremist groups.
According to the United Nations, more than 600,000 Syrians have returned to areas liberated by the Syrian government with the assistance of Russia and Iranian forces.
But that is where the tragic problems often begin, the joy of returning to a life where the scourge of ISIS has been eliminated can be cut short in an instant by what ISIS and other terrorists leave behind.
‘The first mine explosion killed our neighbor and his sister-in-law when they entered their house,’ said Ali Hussain Omari, a former freedom fighter from the city.
‘Three days later another mine killed my cousin. His 11-year-old daughter’s leg was amputated and their house was destroyed. A week later another mine in an olive tree exploded. My neighbor lost his leg.’
What a horrible irony to have survived the marauding jihadists only to be blown to pieces by the terrors they left behind.
Which is why it is all the more disturbing that the United States government is so adamant that US-trained Serbian de-mining experts NOT deploy to Syria to help make post-ISIS Syria safe for civilians to return.
In other words, “the USA funded training in Serbian de-mining operations and if Serbia want to continue receiving money from the United States, Serbia better cancel their plans to assist with de-mining in Syria.
And the Syrian victims of ISIS and other (probably US-backed) extremist mines that continue to kill and maim innocent civilians and children? Too bad for them. More innocents will die in the name of the current US Cold War 2.0 psychosis.
