Assad: Syria gets information on US-led air strikes via Iraq

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said third parties including Iraq were conveying information to Damascus about a US-led campaign of air strikes against the Islamic State militant group in Syria. In an interview with the BBC broadcast on Tuesday, Assad said there was no direct cooperation with the United States, whose air force has been bombing the Islamic State group in Syria since September. Asked if there was indirect cooperation, he said: “That’s true, through third parties, more than one party, Iraq and other countries, sometimes they convey message(s), general message(s), but there is nothing tactical.”
