BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:05 P.M.) – The U.S. is not actively seeking war with the Syrian government forces, Dana White of the U.S. Defense Department Spokesperson stated on Thursday.
Furthermore, the Defense Department Spokesperson claimed that the U.S. military contacted the Russians in advance before launching their assault that killed several pro-government tribesmen.
“We had a very productive conversation … we told them [Russians], they knew what was happening. They agreed not to attack Coalition forces. So, from that respect it was successful,” White said.
White then went on to tweet: “Any action that takes away from our ongoing operations to #defeatISIS is a distraction.”
