Two British Service Members Were Seriously Injured By ISIS In Euphrates Valley

US special forces with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Syria, May 26

Two British special forces soldiers have been seriously injured during clashes with ISIS fighters in the middle Euphrates River Valley in eastern Syria, the Daily Mirror newspaper reported at the late hours of January 5.

According to the available details, the British service members where hit with an anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) fired by ISIS when they were operating around the town of al-Shaafah along with Kurdish fighters. Earlier reports said that most of the town have been liberated from ISIS.

“Due to a smart missile attack by ISIS, a fighter of the YPG was killed and another wounded, in addition to two British soldiers,” a spokesman for Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told Iraqi Kurdistan media group Rudaw.

The British soldiers were reportedly airlifted from the battlefield by U.S. forces and moved to a medical point to receive treatment.

The British media is speculating that the two service members were personnel of the Special Air Service (SAS), which is known to be operating in eastern Syria. However, the Ministry of Defense of the UK has not confirmed this so far.

Last March, two British and U.S. soldiers were killed when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded inside of their unarmored vehicle in the SDF-held part of northern Aleppo. No one claimed the attack and the US-led coalition never provided any details about the incident.

This incident will likely have a direct impact on the U.S. decision to withdraw its troops from Syria. Recent reports suggest that Washington is already planning to manipulate the decision in order to maintain a military presence of some sort in the war-torn country.

    Maybe they should pull out troops too like U.S.? If not they can expect more casualties…

      What a joke. Casualties in low quantaties are expected. Often the opposite happens and troops then bring in extra troops to eliminate.

          • Jens Holm

            To me its not only the usual competition but a must. I think we have another big problem there – too. Too much old stuff is circling around among those many vital objects of ours.

            People which invent things should be foirced to clean up as they has to do here.

            And it can be done – even making a lot of money. Our biggets old polluters were demanded to clean up used water for agriculture as well as powerplants and cement. Today those companies export cleaning of air and water for billions. They also has lowered the use of insolation and electricity.

            Garbage handling and energy waste is a must for space too.

        • Jonathan Stern
        • Jens Holm

          Fine with me. Its a choise, choosing whats best. US and other could copy it, but we dont need many.

          So far nothing bter to the price is possible, but ingeniers still try. Im am sure things for space will be improved as anything else.

          The Russians aslso are very good in smaller missiles and do export many.

          • FlorianGeyer

            The US tried to copy and even improve Russian engines.

            Cars mean little to me anymore. They are a means of transport only.

            To me its like in the good USSR days, where russians according to my communist sister invented eveverything.

            Nice they tgry too, but usually the rest of the world knows quality as well as scale.

            You see it with tanks too. Very expensive handcraft, which they hardly can effort to buy themselves. If they really want to export weapons, the design should be thinking like they have done weith the T34 or the Assault making – best to the price.

            We can have palms in Denmark too for a beach or two, but they are taken in in wintertime and several are working hard to keep them alive. Of course thats made to make more tourists comming. But it is artificial use for tourists just as camels in Turkey.

Perhaps Russia doesn’t have kinetic rods in orbit right now, but they have at least three known launch sites… Of course, they don’t have to have destroy your enemy for ten times as the US can destroy Russia what you can expect from someone who has fifteen times stronger economy, superiority in many other ways… Russia can destroy US only once.

      • jako

        Basically I agree with everything you say

        Just one friendly advice..
        Try not to be so obsessed with Israel.
        That country has very bleak future, very dark future…
        So I wouldn’t be thinking much about them if I were you.

        • verner

          sorry but as you write your stuff the senate is trying to pass a law making it impossible for the bds-movement to work anywhere in the moronic state and in europe the various israeli agents/ambassadors are working for the same agenda – it might be a tad bit more difficult but the commission is in the hands of the moronic states and thus israel’s interests are well taken care of.

          to start a de-recognition of israel movement is actually a rather clever method – making israel’s legal status questionable and by stopping the cash infusions from abroad will lead to israel having to rely on the moronic state far beyond the moronic state’s financial capacity and that will be a strain that will not hold. in this situation think south africa and the apartheid system.

          so three point system:

          a) derecognize the illegal settlement called israel, close embassies and demand israel-free computers when you buy a new pc etc etc uzw

          b) stop all financial cash infusions to israel, like stopping cash transfers to common terrorists

          c) join the bds-movement and sell it to all your colleagues, friends etc. I seem to notice that the bds is much more in focus among younger people.

      of course but according to the signs on the wall – the west is a crumbling colossus on feet of clay. trump would like to withdraw the troops and spend the money on the infrastructure at home but since he, so far, is a winged commander in chief, it will have to wait. but rest assured that he intends to become the unchallenged coc and then be reelected for a second term. bolton can go and scr..ew himself and fat old boy pompous can do the same and I’m not certain trump would waste the time of the day on israel, despite kushner.

        Trump is still an uncertain factor…..I have to admit he has done some good things to unveil the Cesspool…whether he did them intentional or not….

    I didn’t know their were any Brits here at all, leave alone involved in the fighting, so I wasn’t expecting to see any dead or wounded Brits until the SAA/Russia started attacking Idlib and Aleppo. What a nice surprise for the new year, thanks Santa.

      I spotted a Royal Marine officer in Raqqa during the US bombing and shelling of that city.
      It was a photo of him with a group of Kurds.

        You might see how the navy is armed and understand better, where missiles and other flying objects of their comes from. Helicopters too.

        Kurds/SDFs are feet on the ground and by that protect specialists.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I have had occasion to meet and work with a few of these specialists Jens.
          Some are very bright, some are automatons and others just like the uniform.

          All are military misfits in one way or another.
          That is not to say they lack courage though.

    Aww, the UK-empires SAS terrorist for hire. Saudi Arabia can hire them to kill Yemeni children. Israel can hire them to kill Palestinian children. Ukraine can hire them to kill ethnic-Russian children.
    Ahh hell the Queen of the UK can hire the SAS to kill her own daughter in law (princess Diana)
    If ever any human in service of defending humanity crosses paths with an SAS-terrorist, don’t hesitate. Get them before they get you, cause they certainly wont hesitate to kill you. Especially if you are a Monotheist.

      “Queen of the UK can hire the SAS to kill her own daughter in law”

      I thought it was MI5

    Please let it be a Western made and supplied ATGW. The delicious irony in that……..

  • FlorianGeyer

    This is what happens to UK Cannon Fodder when their political masters order them to illegally take part in an aggressive war with no UN authority to do so.

  • jako
