A force of up to 30 ISIS soldiers, some with suicide vests followed a vehicle that was carrying an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in an attempt to attack a base that the US uses to train Syrian rebels. They were met by a combination of air attacks and aerial attacks. We took no prisoners. That means they are all good terrorists now. The assault was launched on the al-Tanf military base in southern Syria, near the Jordanian border.
American forces are stationed at the base, which is used to train Syrian rebels. Other American troops on a nearby patrol responded after hearing about the attack to provide assistance. U.S. and coalition forces killed the ISIS fighters through direct fire and airstrikes, leaving zero survivors. No Americans were killed in the fight.
The ISIS attack on the base near the Syrian border with Jordan comes days after two American warships in the eastern Mediterranean fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at the al-Shayrat air base in response to a Syrian chemical weapons attack in Idlib.
A U.S. defense official insisted Thursday evening that the strike on the Syrian military base was a “one-off” event.
ISIS hasn’t yet caught on to the fact that the rules of engagement have changed drastically since the Snowflake in Chief has slunk away. The military now makes the calls with the approval of Donald Trump, who seems willing to let the experts do what they do best. Allah must be running out of virgins.
