US and French soldiers KILLED / Injured by Turkish Artillery
3 Comments

United States soldiers along with French soldiers have been injured by Turkish Army shelling of their base in Ain al-Arab, Syria.

This is at least the SECOND American-base hit by Turkish military attacks inside Syria this week.

 

The Pentagon refused to respond to a query about these injured US soldiers . . .

Our sources inside the Intelligence Community are being contacted and updates to this story are expected.

 

UPDATE 5:10 PM EDT --

A contingent of U.S. Special Forces was hit by Turkish shelling.

The Special Forces were operating on Mashtenour hill in the majority-Kurdish city of Kobani.

A Pentagon official said that Turkish forces should be aware of U.S. positions "down to the grid." The official would not specify the exact number of personnel present, but indicated they were "small numbers below company level," so somewhere between 15 and 100 troops.

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site.  The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."

Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.

With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.

In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week;  which is chump-change that you won't even miss!  Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.

In the final analysis, knowledge is power.  Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.

TURKEY ISSUES PUBLIC DENIAL:

STATEMENT ON THE ALLEGED TARGETING OF A U.S. OBSERVATION POST 

Earlier today, Turkish border outposts south of Suruç came under Dochka and mortar fire from the hills located approximately 1,000 meters southwest of a U.S. observation post. In self-defense, reciprocal fire was opened on the terrorist positions of the attack. Turkey did not open fire at the U.S. observation post in any way. All precautions were taken prior to opening fire in order to prevent any harm to the U.S. base. As a precaution, we ceased fire upon receiving information from the U.S. We firmly reject the claim that U.S. or Coalition forces were fired upon.  (direct link)

    Turkey was warned not to mess with U.S. military since they was withdrawn.
    Now, they have did the wrong thing. The million dollar question is... i like TRUMP BUT......
    Will TRUMP get some balls and do something or will he just do his normal slap on the wrist bullshit sanctions again...

    Remember President Trump's speech about the snake during his campaign? The punchline was, "You knew I was a snake when you took me in". That snake is the president of Turkey.
