BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition destroyed a mosque that was used by the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization as a command center in eastern Syria, the Joint Task Force of the Operation Inherent Resolve stated this evening.

“On October 22, a Coalition strike destroyed several buildings used by Daesh to launch attacks against Syrian Democratic Force partners in As Susah, Syria,” the press release said.

“One of those facilities used by Daesh was a mosque that was being used as a defensive fighting position and command center,” they added.

This attack by the U.S. Coalition came just hours after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to score a big advance north of Baghouz Al-Fouqani in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Democratic Forces are now working to clear the remaining towns south of the Islamic State stronghold of Hajin.

So it is OKAY for the US to use illegal weapons to destroy a mosque, killing civilians because ISIS was targeting their trained MERS but it is a crime for Assad to destroy a Mosque which Rebels used to fire upon CIVILIANS. Only US mercs lives matter and Syrian noncombatants, CIVILIANS, are fair game.

Have you red the article? ISIS made it “a mosque that was being used as a defensive fighting position and command center”.

Even if you only deploy snipers on the roof of a hospital, the place is no more protected by international law, even if the hospital goes on being used for surgery etc!

And whatabout “illegal weapons being used”? It’s nowhere in the article. So you bark about Yanks blowing ISIS roaches? You must be a terrorism fanboy!

Even in the worst case of being totally that the mosque was use by ISIS, but it also used by children, women, and elder who go there to pray !! Of course, for USA (as usual) this is not important, the important thing is that ISIS (?) was there and they have to be destroyed. However, all of this is very strange since USA supports ISIS, what in the world USA was killing there ?
