US-Led Troops Thwart ISIS Ambush, Mow Down 9 Terrorists

U.S. Coalition and Syrian anti-Islamic State forces killed 9 militants during a botched ambush in Syria near the Iraqi-Jordanian border, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) revealed in a Saturday statement.

“Da’esh terrorists in vehicles with blacked-out headlights penetrated Syrian regime lines into the de-confliction zone. Coalition and partner forces ordered the vehicles to halt, upon which Daesh terrorists dismounted and began firing. Coalition and MaT partners returned fire, killing 9 Daesh members and destroying several vehicles,” the statement revealed using another name for ISIS.

OIR clarified that “Coalition officials and their Russian counterparts used the de-confliction telephone line to ensure forces on the ground did not belong to Russia or the Syrian Regime.”

The incident occurred at the At Tanf crossing which unites the borders of Syria, Iraq, and Jordan. The area is strategically important to all major parties fighting in Syria, particularly Iranian backed Shiite militias fighting for Bashar Al-Assad.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
