On Thursday, the U.S. Coalition parachuted a large cache of weapons to the rebel fighters that are surrounded by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the city of Mar’e in northern Aleppo.

According to rebel social media activists, the U.S. Coalition parachuted these weapons to the rebel fighters inside Mar’e at 4 A.M on Thursday morning.

The rebel groups currently combating the Islamic State forces in Mar’e are Faylaq Al-Sham, Jabhat Al-Shamiya, and the Al-Mutasem Brigade; these groups are primarily Islamists.

This weapons drop is the first time the U.S. Coalition has delivered weapons like this to any group besides the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

They are islamists too, just let them weaken each others then it’ll be easier to get rid of all the remaining fanatics.
