US jets destroy anti-ISIS coalition base in Syria after withdrawal, official says

Two Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) F-15 jets destroyed a base that was the headquarters of the anti-ISIS coalition in northern Syria on Wednesday after it had been vacated, according to a military official.

OIR Spokesman Col. Myles Caggins III said the fighter jets “successfully conducted a pre-planned precision airstrike at the Lafarge Cement Factory to destroy an ammunition cache and reduce the facility’s military usefulness.”

All coalition forces and equipment had been removed from the base, which was located between Kobanî and Ain Issa, Caggins said.

The move comes as nearly all U.S. troops withdraw from Syria amid a Turkish military offensive into the region that began last week.

Most U.S. troops in Syria have been removed and will be redeployed in the region in the coming weeks.

Caggins confirmed earlier Wednesday that the Coalition’s deliberate withdrawal continues, and the Lafarge Cement Factory in northern Syria, as well as the cities of Raqqa and Tabqah, had been vacated.

Caggins told Fox News on Tuesday that the cement factory was set on fire before it was vacated by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

TURKISH-BACKED FORCES COME ‘VERY CLOSE’ TO US TROOPS IN SYRIA, OFFICIAL SAYS

“The location had been the headquarters of the de facto Defeat-ISIS coalition in Syria,” he said. “No U.S. forces or equipment were ever in jeopardy and remain within separate, secure facilities.”

“Our priority is protecting the remaining Coalition forces at the LCF as multiple forces converge in northeast Syria,” Caggins said at the time. “Coalition forces are executing a deliberate withdrawal from northeast Syria.”

Trump authorizes sanctions against Turkey amid Syria incursion, calls for end to its ‘destabilizing actions’

President Trump announced Monday afternoon that he will soon issue an executive order imposing sanctions against Turkey for its “destabilizing” offensive in Syria, amid a bipartisan outcry over the president’s troop pullback earlier this year that endangered U.S.-aligned Kurdish forces.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Trump announced that steel tariffs would “be increased back up to 50 percent,” and the U.S. will “immediately stop negotiations … with respect to a $!00 billion trade deal with Turkey.”

The order would enable “powerful” additional sanctions against those who “may be involved in serious human rights abuses, obstructing a ceasefire, preventing displaced persons from returning home, forcibly repatriation refugees, or threatening the peace, security, or stability in Syria,’ Trump wrote. Current and former Turkish officials, as well as anyone contributing to “Turkey’s destabilizing actions in northeast Syria” might be targeted, Trump said.

Remaining U.S. troops in northeast Syria will be withdrawn as planned, Trump said, and redeployed “in the region to monitor the situation and prevent a repeat of 2014,” when ISIS made major territorial gains.

In separate tweets, the president said he would “much rather focus on our Southern border” than the conflict in Syria.

Trump also emphasized that Syria “wants naturally to protect the Kurds.” The New York Times reported that a deal between Kurdish forces and Damascus – which was announced Sunday evening – would enable Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces to attempt to regain a foothold in the country’s northeast.

“An agreement has been reached with the Syrian government – whose duty it is to protect the country’s borders and preserve Syrian sovereignty – for the Syrian Army to enter and deploy along the Syrian-Turkish border to help the [Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF] stop this aggression” by Turkey, the SDF, which is a primarily Kurdish militia, said in a statement.

The developments came as graphic images of violence directed at Kurds circulated on social media.

Turkey has justified its ongoing invasion of northeast Syria to the United Nations by saying it’s exercising its right to self-defense under the U.N. Charter, according to a letter circulated Monday.

Ankara said the military offensive was undertaken to counter an “imminent terrorist threat” and to ensure the security of its borders from Syrian Kurdish militias, whom it calls “terrorists,” and the Islamic State extremist group.

KURDS ANNOUNCE DEAL WITH DAMASCUS AMID US PULLOUT

Since 2014, the Kurds had fought alongside American forces in defeating ISIS in Syria. But Trump ordered American troops in northern Syria to step aside last week — a move decried at home and abroad as a betrayal of an ally.

The U.S. withdrawal cleared the way for Turkey’s cross-border attack on Kurdish-held areas in Syria, which is now in its sixth day and has led to quickly shifting alliances.

The military action by Ankara sets up a potential clash between Turkish and Syrian government troops, as the Kurds have now turned to Damascus for support. It also raises the specter of a resurgent ISIS, since the Kurds will focus their attention on the Turkish advance.

Turkey’s position is that the main Kurdish group in Syria is linked to an outlawed Kurdish group in Turkey, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party. Known as the PKK, that group has waged a 35-year old conflict against the Turkish state that has left tens of thousands of people dead.

JIM HANSON: U.S. MUST DO THIS TO PREVENT ISIS RESURGENCE

Turkey’s U.N. Ambassador Feridun Sinirlioglu said in the letter to the Security Council dated Oct. 9 that its counter-terrorism operation will be “proportionate, measured and responsible.”

“The operation will target only terrorists and their hideouts, shelters, emplacements, weapons, vehicles and equipment,” he said. “All precautions are taken to avoid collateral damage to the civilian population.”

But U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Monday that at least 160,000 civilians have been newly displaced and that military action has already reportedly resulted in many civilian casualties.

Sinirlioglu said Syria’s eight-year conflict “has created a breeding ground for various terrorist organizations, posing a wide range of threats to the region and beyond.”

Turkish airstrikes in Syria reportedly target journalist convoy, civilians; at least 9 dead

Fresh airstrikes from Turkey reportedly targeted civilians and a group of foreign reporters in the Syrian border town of Ras al-Ayn, according to monitoring groups and Syrian Kurdish officials.

The Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said the airstrike killed at least nine people – including five civilians on Sunday, while other reports claimed that the convoy included foreign journalists, according to Haaretz.

A spokesman for the Kurdish forces put the death toll at 11 killed and more than 74 injured, but it was not immediately clear how many were civilians.

France 24 reported that at least one journalist was also among the dead, while two French reporters were also injured in the attack. The nationality of the slain journalist was not immediately confirmed.

French reporter Stephanie Perez said on Twitter that she as on the convoy with Kurdish civilians when the airstrikes hit.

“Our team is fine but some colleagues are dead,” she wrote in French.

Hawar News confirmed that one of their journalists was killed in the airstrike, while the northern Syria-based North Press Agency (NPA) reported one of its journalists – named by the agency as Delsoz Yousef – was among the injured.

Images of the attack showed bodies and severed limbs strewn in the street. Some of those killed appeared to be carrying guns. Activists said the gunmen were guarding the convoy.

WHY IS TURKEY ATTACKING THE KURDS? EXPERT BREAKS IT DOWN?

The airstrikes came hours after President Trump ordered all U.S. troops to withdraw from the area to avoid getting caught in the middle of the fast-escalating conflict. The announcement represents a major shift in alliances for Syria’s Kurds after they were abandoned by the U.S., with whom they were longtime partners in the fight against the Islamic State group.

The Syrian government said it would deploy troops along the border with Turkey to help Kurdish fighters fend of Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria, the Kurds said.

The dizzying developments reflected the rapidly growing chaos that has unfolded in the week since Trump ordered U.S. forces in the region to step aside, clearing the way for the Turkish attack on the Kurdish fighters it considers terrorists.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced Sunday all American troops will withdraw from northern Syria because of the increasing danger posed by the fighting.

“We have American forces likely caught between two opposing advancing armies, and it’s a very untenable situation,” he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” He did not say how many would withdraw or where they would go but that they represent most of the 1,000 U.S. troops in Syria.

Esper said that roughly 1,000 troops will be withdrawing from the north of the country. A U.S. official told Fox News that forces will not be leaving the country altogether, but will be moving southward.

MATTIS SAYS ISIS ‘WILL RESURGE’ IN SYRIA FOLLOWING TRUMP’S MOVE TO WITHDRAW US TROOPS

The Turkish military has said it aims to clear Syrian border towns of Kurdish fighters’ presence, saying they are a national security threat. Since Wednesday, Turkish troops and Syrian opposition fighters backed by Ankara have been advancing under the cover of airstrikes and artillery shelling.

Kurdish officials announced they will work with the Syrian government to fend off the Turkish invasion, deploying side by side along the border. Syrian TV said government troops were moving to the north to confront the Turkish invasion but gave no details.

A Syrian Kurdish official and a war monitor also said Syrian government forces were poised to enter Kurdish-controlled towns from which U.S. troops are pulling out, following a deal reached through Russia.

The Kurdish fighters had few options after the United States abandoned them, and it had been anticipated they would turn to the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad and its Russian allies for support.

The Syrian troop movements raise the risk of a clash between Syria and Turkey.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday ruled out any mediation in the dispute with the Kurds, saying Turkey won’t negotiate with “terrorists.” NATO member Turkey views the Syrian Kurdish fighters as terrorists because of their links to the Kurdish insurgency inside Turkey.

The United Nations said more than 130,000 Syrians have fled since the operation began last week. Turkey said 440 Kurdish fighters have been killed since the operation began Wednesday. The SDF said 56 of its fighters have died. Turkey also said four of its soldiers were killed, along with 16 allied Syrian fighters.

Hundreds of ISIS supporters escape camp in Syria as Turkish troops approach, Kurds say

Hundreds of people affiliated with the Islamic State escaped a camp where they were being held on Sunday after Turkish forces approached the Kurdish-held town, Kurdish officials said.

About 950 ISIS-connected foreigners managed to leave the camp, located in Ain Eissa, roughly 20 miles south of the border, after detainees apparently attacked the camp’s guards and gates and fled, the Kurdish-led administration said in a statement.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in Britain, said Turkish warplanes struck villages near the camp on Sunday. They didn’t provide the exact number of residents who fled the camp, but said clashes broke out between Turkey-backed Syrian fighters and Kurdish forces.

REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK: IN SYRIA, FOX NEWS WAS EMBEDDED WITH KURDISH FORCES BATTLING ISIS

Roughly 12,000 people, including nearly 1,000 foreign women with links to ISIS and their children, live in the camp. The town of Ain Eissa is also home to one of the largest U.S.-led coalition bases in northeastern Syria.

The Kurdish forces, who partnered with the U.S. in the fight against ISIS, say they may not be able to maintain detention facilities holding thousands of militants as they struggle to stem the Turkish advance.

Turkish forces have been pushing toward the town as part of their offensive against Kurdish-led forces — fighters which Turkey believes are terrorists because of their links to the insurgency in its southeast. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday that Turkey won’t stop until the Syrian Kurdish forces withdraw at least 20 miles from the border.

Turkey launched an operation to carve out a “safe zone” along the border earlier this week after President Trump moved U.S. forces aside, saying he was committed to getting out of America’s “endless” wars.

The Trump administration has been criticized for abandoning the Kurds, who have been steadfast allies in the five-year-long fight against the ISIS terror group.

On Saturday, the president announced the release of $50 million in aid to human rights groups and other aid organizations in Syria in an apparent attempt to counter the criticism he’s received about the pullout.

“Other presidents would not be doing that, they’d be spending a lot more money but on things that wouldn’t make you happy,” Trump said while addressing a gala dinner. “The U.S. condemns the persecution of Christians and we pledge our support to Christians all over.

Erdogan senior adviser denies Turkey fired at American troops in northern Syria

A senior adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Fox News on Saturday that Turkey didn’t fire on American soldiers in northern Syria days after launching an offensive, contrary to what the Pentagon stated Friday.

“That’s another lie,” Gulnur Aybet told Fox News’ Leland Vittert.

“We did not fire on American soldiers. […] That was a lie that was spun by the YPG,” she said, referring to the largely Kurdish militia that forms the bulk of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic forces.

The Pentagon said Friday that U.S. troops near the border town of Kobane in northern Syria came under artillery fire from Turkish positions. The area where the explosion occurred is an area known by the Turks to have U.S. forces present there, according to the Pentagon. No American troops were injured.

Aybet firmly denied that Turkey fired on U.S. troops. She claimed Turkey was “returning fire that was fired at our territory by the terrorists of that region. We were very careful not to fire on the American observation post there.”

President Trump announced Sunday that the U.S. would pull all troops from northeast Syria, clearing the way for a Turkish air and ground offensive. Erdogan’s troops launched an assault on Wednesday and ground forces invaded later that day.

Erodgan’s adviser told Vittert that Turkey is “very disappointed [the U.S. is] still working with the YPG.”

Turkey views the United States’ support of the Kurds and YPG as “an ill-conceived policy to arm one terrorist group to fight another,” Aybet said. Turkey considers the YPG equivalent to the PKK, or Kurdistan Workers’ Party — a Kurdish far-left political group that is listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S.

“I think President Trump is absolutely right in wanting to bring home U.S. troops,” Aybet told Vittert. “I think it’s very unfair they’re hostage to this ill-begotten policy [of] arming one terrorist group to fighter another,” referring to the Islamic State (ISIS) in the region. The Kurds have detained thousands of ISIS prisoners in the area. After Turkey launched its military operation, many analysts questioned what would happen to the terrorist fighters, and whether the Kurds would be able to keep them emprisoned or they would be released.

According to Aybet, Turkey has two objectives in northeast Syria: clear the YPG from the border region and ensuring the return of between one and two million Syrian refugees.

According to the war-monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 74 Kurdish fighters have been killed since Wednesday, as well as 21 civilians and 49 Turkish-backed Syrian opposition fighters.

Turkey-Syria payback: Norway suspends arms sales to Erdogan regime, exposing cracks in NATO solidarity

Turkey’s incursion into northeastern Syria this week has been met with international condemnation – but it’s also induced something of a schism between members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

On Thursday, Norway’s Foreign Minister Ine Soreide announced in an email to AFP that, given the complexity and ever-changing nature of the situation, “as a precautionary measure” the foreign ministry “will not handle any new demands for exports of defense material or material for multiple uses to Turkey.”

“It is clear there is growing unease among some members regarding Turkey’s actions, and it is likely Norway’s move will be followed by other NATO members as well,” Nile Gardiner, the director of the Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center, told Fox News. “Turkey is being put on notice over its military actions and will be held to account.”

Other experts anticipated that more schisms in the once-tight NATO alliance might follow.

“Turkey may be a NATO ally, but they have consistently not acted like it – and there have to be consequences for that,” said Brad Bowman, the senior director for the Center on Military and Political Power at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. “It is time to align policy toward Turkey with [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s actual actions.”

WHERE DOES MEXICO REALLY GET ITS GUNS?

Moreover, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters Thursday he “counts on Turkey to show restraint and to ensure that their actions in northern Syria are measured and proportionate and avoid even more human suffering.”

“We have to remember that we need to continue to stand together in our common fight against the common enemy, which is ISIS,” he stressed. “We must preserve those gains.”

On Wednesday, in the immediate hours following Turkey’s announcement that its operation had begun, the prime minister of Finland – which is not yet part of the 29-member NATO cohesion – declared the country would “call attention to Turkey’s attack, its impact on refugees in the region and the humanitarian needs of Syria.”

“The government will not grant new arms export licenses to Turkey,” Prime Minister Antti Rinne said in a statement, “or other countries engaged in war.”

Still, it’s unclear what action the United States will take in response to Turkey’s cross-border assault, which is said to have killed more than 100 people in less than two days. In Gardiner’s view, the White House – despite President Trump’s earlier assertions that it would unleash economic fury on Ankara if it targeted the U.S.-backed Syrian Kurds – is likely going to sit for a few days and assess the situation.

“The president has sent a clear message to Turkey, and the U.S. clearly has an interest in avoiding conflict between Turkey and the Kurds,” Gardiner said. “ISIS, Russia and Iran all need to be kept at bay, and Turkey needs to be on the same page with it.”

A bipartisan Senate bill aimed at pausing U.S. military assistance to Turkey is expected to be introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., as early as next week when Congress returns from recess.

The measure would seek to sanction Erdogan and other top officials.

Turkey has viewed the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as being tightly allied to the PKK, a designated terrorist organization, and a separatist movement that has long waged war with Ankara in the rugged hills of the Turkish state. However, the U.S. – despite its NATO partnership with Turkey – backed and installed the SDF as the primary ground force to root out ISIS from the swaths of Syria that it overtook.

The White House suddenly announced this past Sunday night that U.S. troops were withdrawing from their posts in northern Syria, and analysts quickly warned an escalation between Turkey and the SDF would create a chaotic void which adverse actors could exploit further.

Meanwhile, concerns over the humanitarian crisis on the ground continued to unfold.

According to Robin Fleming, a researcher at the Rojava Information Center, scores of civilians have escaped most of the border towns. Cars have been clogging the roads “with nowhere to go.”

“(Turkey) is targeting military bases and civilian areas, they are trying to create an atmosphere of fear,” she said Thursday afternoon, against a backdrop of bombs and shells blistering the night sky.

However, Fleming also stressed that those on the ground welcomed Norway’s decision not to export arms and were hopeful others in the international community will follow in their footsteps.

“If more countries take that stance, apply sanctions or even just make a public declaration that they don’t support (Turkish incursion), it could have a big effect,” she added.

Turkey’s Syria invasion: Member of US Special Forces says, ‘I am ashamed for the first time in my career’

Westlake Legal Group us-syria Turkey's Syria invasion: Member of US Special Forces says, 'I am ashamed for the first time in my career' Melissa Leon Jennifer Griffin fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/conflicts/syria fox-news/us/military/army fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/world fnc ca65e2e9-7477-5c32-9fc7-13c30e96c9ab article

A member of U.S. Special Forces serving alongside the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Syria told Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin on Wednesday they were witnessing Turkish atrocities on the frontlines.

“I am ashamed for the first time in my career,” said the distraught soldier, who has been involved in the training of indigenous forces on multiple continents. The service member, whom Griffin described as “hardened,” is among the 1,000 or so U.S. troops who remain in Syria.

“Turkey is not doing what it agreed to. It’s horrible,” this military source on the ground told Griffin. “We met every single security agreement. The Kurds met every single agreement [with the Turks]. There was no threat to the Turks — none — from this side of the border.”

TURKEY SAYS GROUND FORCES HAVE INVADED NORTHERN SYRIA; MULTIPLE CIVILIANS REPORTED DEAD

President Trump said the U.S. would pull its troops from northeast Syria on Sunday, a move considered a blow to the U.S.-backed Kurds by many analysts and political observers. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan later announced a military operation in the region that he said was to “neutralize terror threats” and establish a “safe zone.”

At least seven civilians have been killed in strikes in northeastern Syria since the assault began on Wednesday, according to activists and a war monitor. Turkey later announced that its ground forces had invaded the region to fight the Kurds.

“This is insanity,” the concerned U.S. service member said. “I don’t know what they call atrocities, but they are happening.”

Griffin called it one of the hardest phone calls she has ever taken.

U.S. military officials told Fox News the president ordered the military not to get involved in the Turkish strikes, after the Kurds requested air support.

Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria are guarding thousands of captured Islamic State (ISIS) fighters, now without the help of the U.S. in the area.

The Special Forces member said the Kurds have not left their positions guarding detainees. In fact, “they prevented a prison break last night without us,” the military source on the front line said. “They are not abandoning our side [yet].”

“The Turks are hitting outside the security mechanism,” according to the source, who said the Kurds are “pleading for our support.”

The American troops are doing “nothing,” the source lamented. “Just sitting by and watching it unfold.”

Troops on the ground in Syria and their commanders were “surprised” by Trump’s withdrawal decision Sunday night.

Of the president’s decision, the source said: “He doesn’t understand the problem. He doesn’t understand the repercussions of this. Erdogan is an Islamist, not a level-headed actor.”

“The Kurds are as close to Western thinking in the Middle East as anyone,” said the longtime member of Special Forces. “It’s a shame. We are just watching. It’s horrible.”

“This is not helping the ISIS fight,” the military source said.

Many of the ISIS prisoners “will be free in the coming days and weeks,” he predicted.

Trump told reporters Wednesday afternoon that the captured terrorists were “really bad people who should go back to Europe.”

“We said to various countries, we’d like you to take your people back. Nobody wants them, they’re bad,” Trump said, saying that “maybe the Kurds […] if not them, Turkey” would deal with the ISIS fighters.

“The Kurds are sticking by us,” the Special Forces source stressed to Fox News. “No other partner I have ever dealt with would stand by us.”

American troops were disappointed in the decisions being handed down by senior leaders, the source on the ground added.

McSally hopes Trump’s Syria troop withdrawal is ‘reconsidered,’ says US should stand with Kurds

Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., voiced her concerns with President Trump‘s decision to withdraw troops from the northern Syrian border, saying she hopes “it’s reconsidered.”

“I agree with President Trump’s objective to not be bogged down in the Middle East, to bring our men and women home, and we really need to be looking at the rising threat of China,” McSally said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday.

“However, we have a generational struggle and fight against Islamic terrorism.”

Trump on Monday defended his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria ahead of planned action of the region by Turkey, even as his Republican allies in both the Senate and House vehemently criticized the move.

McSallly, an Air Force veteran who was deployed six times to the Middle East and Afghanistan, praised Trump for his work there before making her case for why his plan for withdrawal was a bad idea.

“We cannot tolerate a NATO ally now coming in and mowing them down. That is just not the right message,” McSally said.

“It’s not good for the safety of America, so I really hope it’s reconsidered.”

The Republican senator said she believed the United States needed to stand with the Kurds, who have aided the U.S. against the Islamic State.

“Turkey needs to be deterred, [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan needs to change his course right now,” McSally said. “I think we need to stand with the Kurds with our amount of capability that we’ve had, which has been very limited, but not turn our backs on them.”
