U.S. warplanes shoot down Iranian-built drone in second strike against Syrian regime aircraft

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) - For the second time this week, American warplanes downed an armed Syrian aircraft — this time an Iranian-built drone — threatening U.S.-backed forces battling the Islamic State terror group in the war-ravaged country.

Pentagon officials confirmed Tuesday that an Iranian-built Shaheed-129 aerial drone advancing on U.S. and coalition positions in southern Syria was destroyed by U.S. fighters. The drone had “dirty wings,” Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis said, using the military colloquialism for an aircraft carrying weapons.

The strike took place near the U.S. and coalition training camp near the Syrian city of At Tanf, which straddles the Iraqi, Syrian and Jordanian borders. It was near the U.S. special operations camp where a foreign drone fired on joint U.S.-Syrian patrol on June 8, which was the first direct attack against coalition forces by the regime in Damascus.

  1. Let me understand this:
    Kurds are fighting ISIS,
    Syria is fighting ISIS,
    The uninvited U.S. military is fighting ISIS.

    Then can someone tell me why the U.S. military is fighting Syria who is trying to push defeat ISIS?

    No, but I will tell you: the PENTAGON is still set to at least partition Syria, so as to get closer to Iran, looking farther down the road to surround China.
    So, while President Trump is trying to ease out of the U.S.'s WAR mentality, the PENTAGON seems to have a mind and an agenda of its own.

    And You thought that the President was the Commander in Chief. HA!
