ISIS Sustains Heavy Casualties as Special Forces Engage for the First Time
ISIS has finally gotten a taste of what the United States military can do. They made the mistake of attacking an Iraqi Army outpost with United States Special Forces present, only to incur heavy casualties — all while the Special Forces troops only used “light and medium” weapons.
ISIS forces attacked an Iraqi Army outpost occupied by more than 100 Americans around 1a.m. local time. The American forces responded “equipped with light and medium weapons, supported by F-18 fighter jets” according to sources on the ground.
US troops have entered with its Iraqi partner, according to Colonel, Salam Nazim in line against ISIS elements and clashed with them for more than two hours, to succeed in removing them from al-Dolab area, and causing losses in their ranks, at a time American fighter jets directed several strikes focused on ISIS gatherings that silenced their heavy sources of fire. He points out that the clashes took place between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.
A field commander of the Iraqi Army in Anbar province, said that “the US force equipped with light and medium weapons, supported by fighter force model F-18 “, was able to inflict casualties against fighters of ISIS organization, and forced them to retreat from the al-Dolab area, which lies 10 kilometers from Ain al-Assad base.
If they were able to drive them back with “light and medium weapons”, imagine what we could do if we broke out the big guns. Of course, that will only happen if our Dear Leader ever gets the balls to use them, so ISIS probably has nothing to fear.
