US and Russian bombers conducted a joint sortie Monday, Jan. 23 against ISIS targets in the eastern Syrian town of Deir ez-Zour. More details to come.  On Jan. 15, five days before Donald Trump was sworn in as president, DEBKAfile forecast exclusively that one of his first actions upon entering the White House would be to approve a joint US-Russian operation against the Islamic State in Syria.

What a concept. Russia and the US working together against ISIS. America should have done this LONG ago. Good riddance Obama.
