The US-led international coalition announced on Saturday destructing 90 boats and three ships belonging to ISIS group in eastern Mosul, IraqiNews reported.

“We thought terminating the members and leaders of ISIS is hard,” The spokesman for the Joint Task Force, Colonel John Dorian said in a press statement.

“These boats were used to transport ISIS members from eastern Mosul to its Western side, to flee from Iraqi security forces,” Dorian added.

It is unknown how many ISIS members were neutralized in the attack.

ISIS are virtually eliminated from eastern Mosul but still control all of western Mosul. East and west Mosul are divided by the Tigris river.

Or maybe the boats were destroyed so the Iraqi army will find it more difficult to cross. When the coalition strikes hard, it is usually for the benefit of ISIL, sad to say.

Flay the Daeshbags

Then they would’ve sunk every single boat, or left the boats alone.

Desperate statement trying to prove the silly thought that Coalition is supporting Daesh. Even if ISF would have boats they would not use them. To vunerable to RPG, ATGM ans sniperfire from western side. Also the ISF needs their vehicles to advance so they need a big boat or a bridge at least

+1 pietsaman Goingbrokes : Where you can criticises REALLY mofos like Kerry/Killary/Obongo’n’Co about Daesh is mostly having sat and watched while this bunch of cockroaches swarmed into Syria. You may also notice that, thanks to al-Maliki that wanted ALL US troops to totally retreat in 2011, overestimating the capacity and motivation of his still unexperienced army and underestimating Daesh but also the former Saddam apparatus : hey, ALL the 2013-2014 Daesh heads but al-Badri were senior Saddam’s officers, guys from his intelligence service, allied with al-Douri’s militia and if you study a little al-Douri’s strategies when he was Saddam’s chief… Read more »

@goingbrokes, exactly! Very well said. The so-called “coalition”, under zionist orders, is not there to “fight” ISIS, but to make sure that once the dust settles, Iraq and Syria are carved up into weak, unstable, ethnocentrist / confessionalist, economically and militarily unviable entities, eternally dependent upon imperial NATO-“benefactors”, and no longer capable of posing any sort of challenge to Tel Aviv. That was and is the primary objective of the terrorist war these criminals have been waging against the people of Syria. True friends of Syria and Iraq are well aware of this, all amateurish efforts by some resident elements… Read more »

On January 20, General John Mattis was confirmed by the Senate and Secretary of Defense. He was seen at the inaugural parade talking to President Trump. On January 22, the U.S. started to fight against ISIS for the first time since the CIA created the network. Coincidence? I don’t think so!

Well, the CIA should thank Trump for helping them “clean up” the mess they have made in creating ISIS.
They just need to STOP SUPPORTING AND SUPPLYING ISIS with arms
