Im not seeing this anywhere else. If true this could be ugly

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday claimed that Islamic State terrorists have taken around 700 people as hostages in a part of Syria controlled by US-backed forces.

It doesn't matter if it's true, from the Putin's point of view. He just said it's time US leaves Syria completely.

Putin is up to something! We'll have to wait and see when and what US news has to say. It sounds like the vast majority of the hostages are Syrians and the troops were US assisted.

Yup. Trump will obey, Russians will 'save' US hostages.

Though it was probably the invitation to a mock war between Russia and the US in Syria, just in time for your midterms.    

Either way you're screwed.

If true it would fit in with ISIS's M.O. Kill women children ,elderly, weak, but run like babies when they are when faced with a uniformed Army. Or take hostages.

I found a link from Reuters.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-putin-capture/putin-says-islamic-state-has-seized-700-hostages-in-syria-idUSKCN1MS215

And one from the New York Post.

https://nypost.com/2018/10/18/putin-isis-took-seized-hundreds-of-hostages-including-us-citizens-in-syria/

There's also videos on YouTube. The actual videos of Putin talking are there but they are in Russian. This one has the interview at the end but it's voiced over.

AMERICA has blasted claims by Vladimir Putin that ISIS has taken hundreds of people hostage in Syria and will execute ten of those hostages each day.

According to The Sun, Mr Putin said the jihadi group had taken almost 700 people from a camp in the war-torn nation, including several European and US Nationals but US officials have cast doubt on the number of hostages and say they’re unaware of any Americans held at the camp near Deir-al Zor.

Acknowledging that there was an attack on the camp, the US military said the rest of Putin’s claims were “unsubstantiated”.

Pentagon spokesman, Commander Sean Robertson said in a statement: “While we have confirmed there was an attack on an IDP (internally displaced persons) camp near (Deir-al Zor) last week, we have no information supporting the large number of hostages alleged by President Putin and we are sceptical of its accuracy.”

Saying "ISIS took hostages" is one thing but to say they "took 700 and they are going to execute 10 each day" is oddly specific. One side or the other is lying here.

Just to clarify, is ISIS in any countries that we are friendly with?

Who knows?

Trump suddenly makes you friends and/or enemies with anyone Putin, Netanyahu or Sauds want. The reason why it's so hard to follow is that these often have contradicting desires. He's on too many short leashes at once. But sometimes he acts on his own whim too and declares love to various psychotic dictators. It's almost less destructive when he does what he's told.   

 

In case someone hasn't understood yet, Putin very obviously said that the piece of Syria that has Americans on it is the only ISIS infested territory left and that you're so incompetent your own citizens were captured. 

It does not matter if that's true, what matters is the unspoken but clear message that Russia will 'liberate' the **** out of both the territory in question and the hostages, in case they're real.      

Putin just let you know he's about to toss you out of Syria. There's no doubt about that. 

Either Trump will withdraw your forces and thus publicly recognize Russian domination, either Trump will order your forces to act like they're attempting to stop Russians, expecting some more 'patriotic' votes in your nearing elections, leaving the impression you are - god forbid - protecting the remains of ISIS instead of destroying them, while destroying your reputation by losing in open conflict against Russians.  

The morbidly funniest part is that there probably are people who are trying to explain this to Trump now, but he couldn't understand them even if he wanted to.

What Putin has stated is obviously fact otherwise it would be a big loss of credibility (face) on his behalf, so what is the reaction from western powers , I guess its one upmanship again from Putin who loves to do this, but I cannot believe that we are backing ISIS but of course we have all had a taste of American "friendly" fire.

We don't know if these hostages exist. The Pentagon is questioning Putin"s claims. They know the camp existed and there are no Americans known to be there.

The morbidly funniest part is how you consistently champion Russia and Putin. Putin calls any group in insurrection against the Iranian puppet regime in Damascus "terrorists" any civilians under their protection either collaborators or hostages. He seeks to create a pretext for further incursions into rebel held territory, ostensibly under Allied protection, to gauge the Allie's response and military posture. How kind of him to want to rescue imaginary American hostages.

Is it my fault that at the moment the US is screwing up so horribly I can't say anything objectively without hurting your feelings?

My feelings? You make me laugh; that's not so bad. What the US has done in Syria is the same thing your hero Putin has done in Crimea and East Ukraine: created a frozen conflict as a guarantor of peace and safety in the territories in question. We are in the mopping up faze with ISIS, at this point in time. The only thing being screwed up is Russia and their lapdog's plans.
