After Trump’s Victory in the presidential elections, the Pentagon has received an order to deploy more unmanned aerial vehicles in Syria in order to hunt for Jabhat Fatah al Sham terrorists.
The Pentagon has received an order of US President Barack Obama to deploy more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Syria in order to detect locations of terrorists of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (previously known as the Al-Nusra Front) group, The Washington Post newspaper reported on Thursday, citing unnamed US military officials.
The newspaper noted that the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) will have more resources and more authority to track leadership of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham.
According to sources of The Washington Post, JSOC-controlled UAVs were already conducting more operations in September and have already allowed to kill at least four ‘high-value’ targets.
This move seems a bit strange in the light of a recent statement of spokesman for the US Department of State John Kirby, who said that the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham is not the main aim of the US-led coalition in Syria, where it fights only against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.
So, it looks like the Pentagon has ‘sensed something’ – Donald Trump has just won presidential elections in the US, and the country’s department of defense has immediately activated its actions against Al-Nusra terrorists in Syria.
