The Pentagon is reportedly furious at Turkey for jeopardizing this safety of American troops in Syria.
This bad news follows last week’s promising news that a new cease fire was agreed upon in the war-torn country. That agreement, negotiated between Russia and the United States, was announced during the G20 summit after President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Now, ironically, it’s a NATO ally that’s threatening instability in the region. Many had hoped that the cease fire would allow aid to flow into damaged city centers deep within Syria, but now many Americans in the country may be focused more on staying alive. It’s not clear whether the act was done on purpose, but it’s certainly going to make American operations harder in the near-future.
