Syria: US bombs HQ for its counter-ISIS campaign after Turkey-proxy jihadists closed in on the base
BREAKING: The US military bombed the Syrian headquarters of the American campaign to battle ISIS, which included warehouses used to train and equip Kurdish troops, after rapidly pulling Americans from the base, current and former US officials said.
The decision to destroy the base came after Turkish-backed jihadists moved on the facility on Tuesday.
As the Turkish-proxy terrorists closed in, the US used Apache helicopters and F-15 fighter jets to intimidate the jihadists and deter them from getting closer to the base where Americans were still stationed.
As the jihadists moved closer to the facility, Kurdish troops set fire to their part of the base and fled, Col. Myles Caggins, spokesman for the US-led military coalition battling ISIS said.
After the show of force, the US military pulled its forces out of the base and carried out strikes to destroy it before Turkish-backed terrorists could take control of the facility.
Horrible videos emerged last week from northern Syria of Turkey-proxy Muslim terrorists executing SDF Kurdish soldiers who fought alongside US troops in the battle against ISIS.
Hervin Khalaf, a female Kurdish politician secretary-general of the Future Syria Party was raped and stoned to death when Turkish soldiers and their Muslim jihadist allies murdered nine civilians in an ambush on the road.
On Monday, France said it was taking measures to ensure the safety of its military and civilian personnel in northeastern Syria as the US began to withdraw 1,000 troops from the area and Syria’s Kurds, abandoned, betrayed and facing a possible genocide, are battling to hold off a Turkish invasion.
“They trusted us and we broke that trust,” one U.S. Army officer who fought alongside the Kurds in northern Syria said last week “It’s a stain on the American conscience.”
