Rep. Lee Zeldin to Russia: Go After ISIS, Not Anti-Assad Rebels


By    |   Thursday, 05 Nov 2015 05:56 PM

Russia must refocus its military might from targeting anti-Assad rebels in Syria to taking out the Islamic State (ISIS), Rep. Lee Zeldin, a member of House Foreign Affairs Sub-Committee on Terrorism, tells Newsmax TV.

Zeldin’s comment comes following the downing of a Russian passenger jet, in what is believed to be an act of terror. ISIS has claimed credit for the disaster, which occurred Saturday over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt with the charter jet appearing to blow up. All 224 aboard were killed.

"Russia's targeting of anti-Assad rebels really should be recalibrated. Russia should be targeting ISIS, not the rebels," Zeldin, a New York Republican, said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"That unholy alliance that Russia has made with [Syrian President Bashar] … It's important for Russia to reposture exactly what their goals are in that particular country."

Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, called on Thursday for tougher U.S. efforts against ISIS.
