BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – There are no Italian troops in Syria, a spokesperson from the Italian Defense Ministry told The Defense Post on Wednesday.

“The report about Italian troops in Syria is absolutely not true,” Lieutenant Colonel Massimo Carta, Head of Media Operations for the Italian Ministry of Defense, told The Defense Post.

“There aren’t any Italian troops employed in Syria,” Carta reiterated, adding that the deployment of Italian Armed Forces in foreign countries must be approved by the Italian parliament.

Rumors of Italian troops in Syria began when Turkish state-owned Anadolu Agency claimed that Italy had sent troops from Iraq to Syria.

The Anadolu report added that the Italian troops had deployed to a U.S. military base near the strategic Al-‘Umar Oil Fields.

These supposed Italian troops were supposed to advise the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in their battle against the Islamic State (ISIS).

The Turkish Mohamerde followers are spreading lies and are upset since Italy has become an Anti-Islam state with Austria and Hungary.

And also since Sairoon Moqtadah Sadr party make an alliance with Fateh pro-iranian coalition to form the new Iraqi government, few days ago the same AndaluShit said Iran supporting the turkish army offensive in northern Iraq, another lie from this sub-race of Mongols who are upset because losing their struggle against the kuffars.

Lies that only leftshit West like Daeshbags sucks are believing.

Or use your eyes, e.g. : Kuffar-Uh-Akhbar! Nevertheless, the only sub-race is the one made of racists! Sad that Pope Alexande-IV banned the Crusaders from allying with Mongolian Khan Hulagu : there wouldn’t be so much problems in the… Read more »
