U.S. Boots in Syria


As of this Friday, The United States has said that they are to deploy troops on the ground in Syria. The reason being for training and advising rebels in their fight against ISIS. A senior administration official said that “fewer than fifty” Special Operations forces would be placed in northern Syria, in the Kurdish-controlled area. The U.S. is also set to add A-10 and F-15 fighter jets to a U.S. controlled air base in Turkey. The U.S. is also sending¬†allotted provisions, such as food and ammunition, to be given to the rebels who are fighting ISIS, other terrorist groups, and the Syrian government.¬†This is a bold move against the terrorist group ISIS. This new move may also shift the bonds that the U.S. has with Syrian-backed Russia and Syria itself.
