The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mavlet Cavusoglu, said to “Haberturk” newspaper on Tuesday that the U.S. plans to deploy an advanced rocket launcher system to the Turkish-Syrian border where the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants are currently operating.

Cavusoglu stated that the U.S. will be deploying the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) to southeastern Turkey in May of this year.

Reuters news agency confirmed this report after interviewing an unnamed senior U.S. military official; however, no further details were released.

In addition to this rocket launcher system, the U.S. is also deploying an additional 250 military personnel to Syria in order to continue their coordination efforts.

The recent U.S. military build-up in Syria has revealed a Cold War style arms race that is brewing between the latter and the Russian forces.

Both countries attempted to regulate a nationwide ceasefire in Syria recently; however, the U.S.’ absence near the primary battlefronts has made it difficult for them to help implement any cessation of hostilities agreement.

Saudis, qataris and turkishs help a lot arming terrorists. Muslim Brotherhood+salafists+petro$. Former Qatar foreign minister confessed to ‘The Economist’. There are certainly very rich jews doing big business in the west but saying they’re running it is really enormously overestimating their wealth and power! Saudis have much much much more money! Just look how F.Hollande who critcized how Israel treats palestinians and who is usually very harsh against death penalty everywhere he goes, when he visited Saudi Arabia just told ’em “you could at least stun them before the executions”. Terrorists are just brainwashed puppets used as pawns on a… Read more »

With a few HIMARS and 300 spec ops, it’s like the coalition which, in a wole year bombings, just dropped less bombs NATO dropped in 4 days in Yugoslavia. US alone have enough planes and choppers to make that every vehicle drived on a road in ISIS lands can be blowed in around 15 min max. In Syria, they are “out” and they know it and things went much too far they thought it would. I suppose they taught there were rivalities between different ethnicities to use as a divide & conqueer but in Syria, nobody knows and cares if… Read more »
