The U.S. backed "Syrian Democratic Forces" (SDF) have launched an imperative offensive to capture the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham's (ISIS) stronghold of Menbeij in the Aleppo Governorate's northeastern countryside on Thursday afternoon.

This news from Menbeij comes just two weeks after the Syrian Democratic Forces - backed by the U.S. and Russian Air Forces - captured the strategic Tishreen Dam that links the Aleppo and Al-Raqqa Governorates in northern Syria.

The city of Menbeij is situated just south of the Turkish border and directly west of the Al-Raqqa Governorate; its capture would leave ISIS in a difficult situation at Jarabulus (Aleppo Governorate) and 'Ayn Issa (Al-Raqqa Governorate).

ISIS has long controlled this area without any-sort of resistance from the Kurdish forces, the Islamists (Nusra, FSA, and Ahrar Al-Sham), and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA); this is due in large part to the substantial amount of territory under the control of the self-proclaimed "Caliphate" (Arabic var. "Khalifa").

Both the U.S. and Russian Air Forces have aided the Syrian Democratic Forces in their war against ISIS; however, the Russians have become more active as of late, striking several ISIS and Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group) strongholds in both northern and northeastern Aleppo.

Oh for gods sake, just watch the US state department press releases with John Kirby, he talked about having great success EQUIPPING them, If you Google isis pickups you may still find the story where The CIA openly admit not only supplying the Toyotas but up specking them with machine guns, about 3 weeks ago were sending 43 more and TOW missile launches because Russia has been blowing them up. How’s that for proof you Muppet.

Just Google, isis pickup trucks US state department. You will find lots of stuff about it, I have just been reading one again where the state department talks about resuming sending weapons including the 43 pickups I talked about, they also call pickups ” force enables ” so it doesn’t attract to much attention, In 2014 the US state department sent a large number of pickups to Al Nusra who past them to isis, happy reading, follow the US state department press release with that clown John Kirby its just shocking what the US is doing they really are out… Read more »
