US is going to use ISIS for guerrilla and subversive activities

Summary of Disinformation

After the defeat of ISIS, the Americans changed their tactics in order to use this terrorist group for guerrilla/subversive activities.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives that the US and other Western countries are supporting and using jihadist groups to advance geopolitical goals.

There is no evidence that the US has supported radical Islamist terrorist groups in Syria. The US-led military campaign in Syria has been fighting ISIS and Islamic terrorists along with the Global Coalition Against Daesh. Background and a similar case can be seen here and here.
