Syria: US Troops Enter Two Towns in Aleppo Province

US soldiers along with the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants entered the Syrian towns of Marea and Azaz in the North of Aleppo.

Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel reported, citing its sources, the US military have arrived to launch military operation against the ISIL group in the Northern parts of Aleppo.

According to Al Mayadeen, the presence of US servicemen immediately caused tensions between the terrorists of Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) and FSA Takfrir militants.

In mid-September, US special forces had to withdraw from the town of al-Rai on Syria’s border with Turkey, after allies from the Free Syrian Army had driven them out, calling them “infidels” and “crusaders”.

Some reports suggested that the Militants threatened to kill the US soldiers operating inside al-Rai if they declined to leave the town. They also continued threatening the US military personnel even as they were leaving the town. Other reports indicated that the militants engaged in first fighting with the US military personnel after threatening them.

The footage showed a group of men gathered in the town square, shouting anti-American slogans in Arabic.

The chants included “Down with America,” “Get out you dogs,” and “They are coming to Syria to occupy it.” Voices in the background call the US troops “pigs” and “crusaders.”

“We don’t want a single American fighting in Syria alongside us,” a man in the second video said, adding that “We are Muslims, we are not infidels. Get out!”

A US official and a senior militant commander, then, confirmed that a protest had taken place, which ended with US troops making their way back towards the Turkish border.
