BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) published a statement on Thursday that claimed their forces foiled a U.S. military landing near the Syrian  border.

According to the statement released by ISIS, their terrorist forces allegedly killed three U.S. soldiers and wounded four others.

The terrorist group also claimed that the landing area was under their observation before they carried out their deadly ambush in western Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

The U.S. military has yet to corroborate these claims by the terrorist group.

ISIS often hyperbolizes their claims in an effort to hide their own losses in their ranks and on the ground.

While the Islamic State has been nearly defeated in both Syria and Iraq, they still have several sleeper cells that are wrecking havoc inside both countries.

Most recently, the Iraqi Army launched a large-scale operation in the Mosul District of the Nineveh Governorate’s provincial capital in order to clear these Islamic State sleeper cells.

The Iraqi Army operation has been relatively successful thus far, as they have managed to kill scores of Islamic State terrorists and cleared several hideouts.

It appears that the Marine helicopter insertion rehearsals in AlTanaf last week were a waste of time 🙂

Just like Houthis, the more they brag about doing “exploits”, the more they’re getting hit!
