Such a Mickey Mouse analysis.

The equipment they "get from the West" is invariably recovered off the battlefield from the Western- equipped Iraqi armed forces and from the thriving black market.

And why accuse Israel of supplying Western equipment, and not the US, France, the UK etc? It's a rhetorical question as I know the answer already.

You may have also noticed the abundance of Kalashnikovs and RPGs etc in their hands, but no accusations coming from you and your kind of being equipped by Russia. Odd.

That depends whether the ‘western allies supplying ISIS’ he refers to are Saudi Arabia and Israel, backed by US neoconservatives (in which case ‘odd’ is probably too polite a word) or Qatar and Turkey (in which case he may have a point). The situation in the Levant is hideously complex but a look at the much simpler case of Libya makes it clear where the lines have been drawn between Middle Eastern states.

He's talking about Israel.

So what happens now to EASAs approach to conflict zone risk ? Particularly CZIB-2017-03R4 that covers Syria.

I wonder if it was a typo and perhaps, it was meant to be slight taper ?
