US Forces Score Major Win in Syria

U.S.-led coalition forces under the auspices of Defense Secretary James Mattis severely weakened the Islamic State group during an airstrike in Syria last month, perhaps even to the point of collapse, by reportedly eliminating the terror group’s chief cleric, Turki al-Bin’ali.

“Coalition forces killed Turki al-Bin’ali, the self-proclaimed ‘Grand Mufti’ or chief cleric, of ISIS, in an airstrike May 31 in Mayadin, Syria,” Operation Inherent Resolve announced in a statement Wednesday.

“Al-Bin’ali had a central role in recruiting foreign terrorist fighters and provoking terrorist attacks around the world,” the statement continued. “As chief cleric to ISIS since 2014, he provided propaganda to incite murder and other atrocities, attempted to legitimize the creation of the ‘caliphate,’ and was a close confidant of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”

As noted by Fox News, his recruitment efforts included “film(ing) lectures trying to condone and provoke the slaying of innocent people” and preparing texts containing “religious justifications for the enslavement of thousands of women from Iraq’s Yazidi minority.”

He was in effect a key figure, meaning his death represented a stunning blow to the terror movement, though it was by no means the first.

In the last few years, a number of key Islamic State group figures have been eliminated by coalition forces in Syria and Iraq, with an uptick in anti-terror efforts by the Trump administration leading to the death last month of the terror suspect who planned the 2016 Istanbul attack.

      Ya, and who will replace Assad? Same type guy that “replaced” the Shah of Iran, or the President of Egypt, or Libya’s Gaddafi? Sober thought is needed

      • Wes

        True, but you can only kill the flies that are bugging you now.

        • GoldenRudy

          I am glad I will not be the parent of a son killed in the attempt to kill “flies that are bugging” me now. Isolate Islam to lands they control. Leave Western Civilization alone. Western Civ does not need Islam. Never has.

          • Wes

            Couldn’t agree with you more. Islam and western civilization are incompatible. Islam is not a legitimate religion. it is a political system that victimizes woman and children. Islam has a governmental system of brutal laws called Sharia. To call it a legitimate religion is false. Slavery is it’s core value. Ours is freedom.

  • GoldenRudy

    There is no “VICTORY” for America in Syria under current conditions & beliefs. OAN had a report last night showing that those the USA thinks are the “good” guys are anything but. What threat does Syria pose to the USA or its allies?

    • Gerry Costa

      Then Syria needs to exterminate all ISIS members in that country and maybe we will get the hell out.

      • GoldenRudy

        That is what Assad and his Russian allies are trying to do. US says there are “moderate” rebels which the USA shoud be backing. What the Hell is a “moderate rebel”? Is that like being “a little pregnant”?

        • Gerry Costa

          No that is like arming the people we are now fighting years ago. Will we never learn ???????
