Damascus, Syria –Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Tuesday that his regime has received information from the U.S.-led international coalition’s forces about their strikes against militants of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS). 

“Sometimes, they convey a message, a general message, but there’s nothing tactical,” Assad told the BBC in an interview

“There is no dialogue. There’s, let’s say, information, but no dialogue.” 

Assad also denied reports by human rights organizations about the Syrian regime army’s use of barrel bombs against populated areas.

“I haven’t heard of the army using barrels, or maybe, cooking pots,” he sarcastically said.
