US-led Coalition: ISIS Units Peneterated Syrian Army Lines And Attacked Coalition At Tanf Garrison

A US-backed militant group, Maghaweir al Thowra, repelled an alleged ISIS attack near the US-led coalition garrison of At Tanf in southeastern Syria, the coalition said in a statement on November 20. The US-backed force killed 9 ISIS members and destroyed several vehicles.

According to the statement, ISIS militants peneterated the Syrian Army lines before they attacked the US-backed militants.

The full coalition’s statement (source):

The Maghaweir al Thowra, a fighting force native to southern Syria, engaged and defeated an attempted terrorist attack in the de-confliction zone near At Tanf. MaT has been fighting Daesh and maintaining security of a 55-km radius de-confliction zone at the tri-border area of Iraq, Syria and Jordan since 2015.

Da’esh terrorists in vehicles with blacked-out headlights penetrated Syrian regime lines into the de-confliction zone. Coalition and partner forces ordered the vehicles to halt, upon which Daesh terrorists dismounted and began firing. Coalition and MaT partners returned fire, killing 9 Daesh members and destroying several vehicles.

Throughout the event, Coalition officials and their Russian counterparts used the de-confliction telephone line to ensure forces on the ground did not belong to Russia or the Syrian Regime.

“Though Daesh has lost over 95% of the land it once claimed as part of its so-called physical ‘caliphate,’ this exchange of fires in southern Syria is evidence the terrorist organization still poses a threat to the people of southern Syria,” said Special Operations Joint Task Force Director of Operations, Col. Owen Ray. “This skirmish also underscores the Coalition’s commitment to remain in the region until Daesh is defeated.”

The MaT’s actions demonstrate Syrians taking control of their territory following a brutal Daesh occupation. The Coalition – working by, with and through partner forces – remains committed to the enduring defeat of Daesh, and to preventing its re-emergence as a terrorist force.

Most likely, the statement is aimed to explain that the US needs the at Tanf garrison to “combat” ISIS, while, in fact, it uses the garrosin to keep control over the Damascus-Baghdad highway.

    “Most likely, the statement is aimed to explain that the US needs the at Tanf garrison to “combat” ISIS, while, in fact, it uses the garrosin to keep control over the Damascus-Baghdad highway”

    without doubt, always if the news is true and the US jihadists didn’t put up ISIS shirts and made the pantomime.

    notice the US statement saying that Daesh is still there hence the US will have to remain.

    • Tudor Miron

      Absolutely. Just trying to justify their presense in the area.

      • Rodger

        Nobody is fooled though.

    USA and Puppets forces are there ( Al Tanf) to cut Damascus-Baghdad highway knowing that in case of war Israel/Saudi vs Syria…is very important that Highway for futher supply lines from Irak and Iran!

  • Robin Morritt

    The Americans are Islamic State’s best friends. They provide a safe haven for terrorists in return for being allowed to set up bases in Sunnistan.

  • Adolfo

    Throw out the yanks the puppet of the jew. The destroyer. The parasite of humanity. The rothchilds.
    And throw them out now.

  • Bill Azzi

    Notice no names, pictures or evidence. ISIS picked up the dead and wounded and took them to Israel for hero burial and medical treatment. I’m being sarcastic in case you hadn’t noticed. Another lot of BS from the US

  • Bruce MacKinnon

    Staged op to try to give Al Tanf base more legitimacy?
