    Good riddance to bad rubbish, but most likey bullshit. Across the border in Deir Ezzor, Syria, the US Ziowahhabi terrorists gave SDF uniforms to the ISIS jihadis that were occupying the region while the SAA was liberating the Syrian desert on the other side of the Euphrates. Now the US and ISIS in SDF uniforms patrol and exploit Syria’s largest oilfields together.

    • Karen Bartlett

      Yeah, I’m not sure I believe this report. The US wants to appear to be fighting terrorists, so why not report that two of their number were killed doing so, not releasing the names, of course.

      • good american

        Yes, me neither. It is a bit contradictory. Either all the evidence of the US supporting ISIS is false, or something else is going on here.

      • Vitex

        They have to make excuses for people who died in the Iranian missile strike too

      Remember how the US made such a big deal about evacuating a few hundred ISIS from the border with israel that they even bombed the roads.. In the end they ended up in tanif area from where they went on a rampage and murdered hundreds of druids and kidnapped like 35 women.. Just after that US allowed 5000 ISIS from Raqqa to move to DZ.. I always said that brett guy was the godfather of terrorists.. started with Iraq and then Syria.. As soon as those ISIS reached DZ, they disappeared and SDF showed up..

    ISIS = CIA

  • igybundy

    I hope none of the moderate rebels were hurt…

    • Liberal guy

      Hahahahaha

  • Peter Jennings

    I wonder if the families of the deceased will take some solace in the fact that these ‘ISIS’ terrorist combatants were probably trained by american staff, have american supplied weapons and a pocket full of american dollars.
    Using a foreign policy to save an economy has its down sides.

    • occupybacon

      They don’t know where Iraq is on the map, many didn’t hear words like Ukraine or Brexit

    Excellent, keep filling the body bags to be shipped back to jewsa!!!

    Anti-War marches across the US!
    NOPE. What happened to all those Democrats? lol

  • khalkha

    The fact is that’s the so called Resistance axis who are the collaborators of the US against isis , iraqi partnership with US is no more to prove.

  • Assad must stay

    Lol

  • Zionism = EVIL

    More than likely a supply mission to their terrorists gone wrong or most likely BS to cover up some other war crimes.

  • Boxman

    More like friendly fire. Sometimes ISIS forgets and stupidly bites the hand that feeds them.
