US troops operating in northern Syria have been threatened to be slaughtered by FSA-affiliated rebels fighting under the Turkish-led Euphrates Shield operation against the Islamic State.

Pro-rebel social media accounts reported that nearly 30 US Special Forces members, including 4 high-ranking officers, entered the town of al-Rai in northern Aleppo near the Turkish borders.

The reasons behind this unexpected military presence for the US forces remain unclear. However, speculations range from pinpointing specific targets for US airstrikes against ISIS positions to setting up a military base.

Video footage was released documenting the moment machinegun-mounted trucks carrying US soldiers emerging out of the town as the Turkish-backed rebels chanted Islamic slogans.

One of the militants who put on a black balaclava addressed the mob via a loudspeaker, vowing to slaughter the Americans and whoever fights with them, describing them as ‘infidels and pigs’.

Yesterday, some 50 US forces, including 10 advisors, have entered Syria through Turkey and set up a camp at the Al-Monbath hill in the countryside of Tell Abyad.

This FSA so called ”rebels” fighting under the turkish umbrella operation are no diferent than Islamic State. And they say we have to accept these ”people” in Europe living in our neighborhoods.

Friendly or unfriendly fire than?

cant see what US are doing in a Turkish projekt like that. Turks should have taken Al Bab days ago or made a door to Aleppo bring food in or …something.

More like camping to me.

And what are they doing right now. They are fighting the best way for ISIS taking territory as they fight in civil wars in Africa and South America.

ISIS-affiliated Amaq agency reported today that a U.S. airstrike “mistakenly” struck opposition militants in the village of Kara Mazraah near Ar-Rai. Probably a demonstration of power to make the Rebels reevaluate their preemptive threats.

Tomas, no-one can understand a word you’re typing, what you’re doing is completely pointless. You clicked on an English article and commented, therefore you understood it, why not just type in English like everybody else? What you’re doing is just ridiculous.

Well, not all the world had the chance to speak english, you know? All portuguese, brazilian, and several african countries understand what he is saying, and even me who dont speak portuguese understand him, so perhaps you should be less anglo-centric and more polite…

What kind of comment is that, he responded to the ENGLISH article, therefore he understands the language. And how many Portugese, Brazilian and “several African” people visit this site? Other than you that is? When no-one can understand you while you continuously write comments, probably looking for a discussion in vain, it’s polite to point out to them the futility of their actions.

“Anglo-centric”? It’s an English language site, it’s not wrong to say that we should type English on an English language site; to do otherwise is kinda rude and bizarre.
