MILITARY/SYRIA/TERRORISM: “US-led coalition aircraft bombed pro-Syrian regime forces Thursday [5-18-17] that ‘were advancing well inside an established de-confliction zone,’ according to a statement issued by Operation Inherent Resolve, the official name for the coalition fighting ISIS.
The statement said the pro-regime militias ‘posed a threat to US and partner forces at At Tanf,’ a remote base in southern Syria near the Syria-Jordan-Iraq border that coalition advisers have used to train ‘Vetted Syrian Opposition’ to aid the fight against ISIS.”
