Turkey Just Opened Fire On American Soldiers In Syria: Report

Donald Trump gave Turkey the green light to attack Northen Syria. And now, according to a new report by Newsweek, the Turkish government isn’t only bombing Kurdish allies but they are also striking American soldiers.

According to the report, special forces in the Mashtenour hill in the city of Kobani fell under artillery fire from Turkey, which is conducting their so-called “Operation Peace Spring” against the Kurdish people.

Trump should be held responsible for the attack as he gave the go-ahead to Turkey after he wanted to get off the phone with an angry Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

According to a senior Pentagon official, the Turkish forces should have been aware of where the U.S. was positioned “down to the grid.” So, it’s unclear why they would begin firing on the American soldiers. There were somewhere between 15 and 100 troops in the area, the official said, describing it as a “small number below company level.”

Defense Secretary Mark Espers tried to convince reporters that 50 Special Forces Operators were repositioned near the Syrian border.
