A Russian vehicle in Syria sideswiped a light-armored American one, injuring four U.S. troops, while two Russian helicopters flew about 70 feet over top the altercation, U.S. officials said following the incident.
Over the weekend, the United States quietly sent mechanized troops into Syria and the reason is two-fold. First, there was a surprisingly violent confrontation between US and Russian forces that left 4 US soldiers with concussions. The video of that clash/attack in Syria is below, and it shows American MRAPS being surrounded by Russian mobile ground troops while Russia helicopters circle over head. Not a small deal. Secondly, ISIS has returned and has once again begun to inflict some damage.
“Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass. For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.” Isaiah 7:7,8 (KJB)
It is not surprising that Syria is once again heating up after the signing of the Abraham Accords, all roads lead to the Middle East in general and to Israel is particular. All conflict in Syria is ultimately a precursor to conflict in Israel and with Israel. Syria is a major player in end times bible prophecy, and will continue to be a hotspot. And it’s hot right now.
US sends mechanized troops back into Syria
FROM ARMY TIMES: Bradley fighting vehicles have headed back into eastern Syria, the Pentagon announced Friday, a move that comes after a tense encounter with Russian forces left four U.S. troops lightly injured last month.
The return of mechanized units also comes as the U.S. military deployed Sentinel radar and increased the frequency of fighter jet patrols over U.S. forces in that part of Syria, according to U.S. Central Command spokesman Navy Capt. Bill Urban.
“These actions are a clear demonstration of U.S. resolve to defend Coalition forces in the Eastern Syria Security Area, and to ensure that they are able to continue their Defeat-ISIS mission without interference,” Urban said in an emailed statement. “The Defense Department has previously deployed Bradleys to northeast Syria pursuant to these goals.”
Bradleys from the 30th Armored Brigade Combat Team were last sent to Syria in late October 2019 to guard oil infrastructure from Islamic State militants, officials said at the time.
They were quietly pulled out after roughly a month when combined patrols with Turkish forces “never materialized” and the “mission requirements changed,” a military official in the region previously told Army Times. The armored vehicles sent back this month belong to 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division, out of Fort Bliss, Texas. The unit is deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield, which is based in Kuwait.
“The mechanized infantry assets will help ensure the force protection of coalition forces in an increasingly complex operating environment in northeast Syria,” said Col. Wayne Marotto, spokesman for the Inherent Resolve mission. “The coalition forces remain steadfast in our commitment of ensuring the enduring defeat of Daesh [ISIS].”
U.S. and Russian officials traded blame in late August after troops from both countries collided in northeast Syria while on patrol. A Russian vehicle sideswiped a light-armored American one, injuring four U.S. troops, while two Russian helicopters flew about 70 feet over top the altercation, U.S. officials said following the incident.
For their part, Russian officials said U.S. troops were blocking their ground patrol and Russian military police “took the necessary measures to prevent an incident and to continue the fulfillment of their task.” RE AD MORE
