US Department of Defense (Pentagon) Deputy Spokesperson Sabrina Singh said that her country is following developments in Syria, calling for de-escalation.
And she stated in the daily press conference, on Tuesday, that the Pentagon continues to follow what is happening in the field, adding, by saying: “We call on all parties to reduce escalation in all its dimensions.”
Singh claimed that all the attacks carried out by the parties in the region affect the fight against ISIS, noting that the United States has not changed its deployment in the region.
In response to a question about who do you mean by “all parties”, Singh evaded the answer by saying: “You saw from open sources that Turkey was attacked last week, then we saw air strikes in Iraq and Syria. We call on the parties to stop all conflicts.”
