Philip Hammond accuses Russia of helping Islamic State by bombing Syrian rebelsRussian bombing raids have boosted Islamic State terrorists by targeting Syrian o悉尼日租 pposition forces, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said today. Kre

mlin planes have carried out strikes on rebel fighters battling President Bashar al-Assads regime, clearing space for IS , also known as Daesh , he told MPs. And he revealed the UK had created a “coalition communications cell” to tackle IS pr

opaganda. Mr Hammond critici

sed the Russians as he updated the Commons on British military

action against IS . He said: “The majority of Russian air strikes continue to target Syrian opposit

ion forces rather than Daesh .

ers, including the United States, we will continue to urge the Russians at every opportunity to focus their fire solely on Daesh . “It is unacceptable that Russian action is weakening the opposition, and thus giving advantage to the very Daesh forces that they claim to be engaged against.” Russia deployed forces to Syria in September, claiming it was joining the fight against IS. But critics feared Vladimir Putin wanted to prop up Moscow ally al-Assad, and attack rebels bidding to topple the Damascus dictator in the countrys raging civil war .

He revealed that since last autumn, UK warplanes have flown more than 1,600 missions over Iraq and latterly Syria, carrying out 400 air strikes. Sixteen RAF planes, including Tornados and Typhoons , are flying out of RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus. No civilians are reported to have been hurt in the raids, he added. RAF jets have f

ur effort to counter their messaging,” said the Tory Minister. “The UK has created a coalition communications cell which is working to combat and undermine the Daesh brand, ensuring that no communication space currently exploited by Daesh is left uncontested.” It will “generate full range of communications at a pace and scale necessary to highlight Daeshs cruel and inhumane treatment of individuals under its control, its failures on the battlefield and its perversion of Islam”, said Mr Hammond.

n intention to contribute in the future, he added. MPs also heard that Chancellor George Osborne will attend the first meeting of United Nations Security Council finance ministers tomorrow as they try to clampdown on the terrorists funding. Mr Hammond said: “The fight against Daesh will not be won overnight. “But however long it takes, it is in our vital national interest to defeat this terrorist organisation and direct threat it poses to our national security. “Failure is not an option.”
