Operation Inherent Resolve spokesman Col. John Dorrian revealed Wednesday what kind of arms the United States will supply to Kurdish forces in Syria.
The United States will soon start supplying arms to Kurdish militias operating within the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The SDF will soon be involved in the advance on the ISIS self-proclaimed capital of Raqqah.
Dorrian revealed that Kurdish forces will receive ammunition, small arms, heavy machine guns and mortars from the United States.
“So what we are talking about here is ammunition, small arms, heavy machine guns and mortars will be included,” he told reporters.
Earlier this week, the Pentagon announced that US President Donald Trump had approved a plan to directly arm Kurdish forces operating in Syria.
