DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:45 A.M.) – A convoy consisting of US armored vehicles and Kurdish technicals was ambushed by ISIS in an attack on the Al-Khirafi Highway in rural Hasakah following a major jihadist assault on Sunday.

Although US Humvees seemingly managed to escape the attack at the last minute, many members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were captured alive or killed on the spot by Islamic State contingents in the same incident.

The images were released by Amaq Agency and contains graphic images of dead SDF troops. Viewer discretion is therefore advised:

On Saturday, the US-backed SDF imposed full control over the villages of Bir Fuwayji, Bir al-Banjah, Bir Ismail and Bir Dawud in a major push along the M7-highway.

However, the Kurdish pincers have left their rearguard positions and flanks vulnerable to Islamic State raids, resulting in a heavy death toll for the SDF.

I’m really baffle as to why the Kurds didn’t put up a fight, or even have convoy security while travelling in a hot zone. They really thought it was a holiday drive to the beach.

No, same as everywhere else told a story by the american’s and they were to stupid to believe it. Portrayed they were getting Northern Iraq, failed at that. Now Portrayed about Syria failed at that. Organized Chaos is what America is good at.
Watch now for Ukraine and North Korea.

Why do you feel sorry for the Kurds? They are ordinary thieves.

This is another excercise in mass deception. The US propaganda machine kicks in each time the US is exposed as being one with ISIS to try to convince us, the general public, to the contrary. However you just have to use commonnsense to realize that these dead fighters are not SDF or Kurds. They are local pro-government anti US militia defending their homes from the US/Kurdish invasion. SDF have Humvies not pick up trucks and wear uniforms not teashirts. The US/SDF/Kurds are ISIS.

US sold the Kurds out. US needed some ‘evidence’ Kurds were fighting ISIS, and now they have it.

Kurds were doing just fine as long as they stayed loyal to Damascus. Might be a lesson there somewhere.
