(Worthy News) - A Syrian army officer was killed in a US strike on a Syrian army outpost near a US base close to the Iraqi-Syrian border, a commander in the regional alliance supporting President Bashar al-Assad told Reuters.

The Pentagon, said, however, that a US-backed Syrian rebel group stationed in the Tanf garrison had engaged on Thursday evening an "unidentified hostile force" outside a "deconfliction zone" around the garrison, forcing it to retreat. It said there were no casualties on either side.

Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias who have gained control of the desert border area since last year have on several occasions come under fire from coalition air power to stop any advances on the base. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. The Pentagon is still on its path of conquest in the Middle East, Trump or not. President Trump is doing all he can to get the U.S. out of foreign wars, but he can't totally counter institutions like the Pentagon or the NSA or the CIA. These institutions are so massive, it's nearly impossible to totally oversee or control them.
    That's why President Kennedy was going to "break the CIA into 1,000 pieces".
    And look what happened to him.
