SOUTHWEST ASIA, Jan. 23, 2018 —Precision strikes killed an estimated 145-150 Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorists near Shafah, Syria, Jan. 20, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials reported.
Syrian Democratic Forces on the ground, who continue to be engaged in heavy fighting against hard-core ISIS remnants attempting to regroup, assisted in target observation prior to the strikes, according to officials. The combination of intelligence and continuous eyes on the target ensured no accidental engagement of nonmilitary personnel.
Heavy concentration of ISIS fighters
The ISIS headquarters contained a heavy concentration of ISIS fighters who appear to have been massing for movement.
“The strikes underscore our assertion that the fight to liberate Syria is far from over,” said Army Maj. Gen. James B. Jarrard, commanding general of Special Operations Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve.
“Our SDF partners are still making daily progress and sacrifices, and together we are still finding, targeting and killing ISIS terrorists’ intent on keeping their extremist hold on the region. We cannot take our focus off our mission, and we must not lose our momentum in taking these terrorists off the battlefield and preventing them from resurfacing somewhere else,” Jarrard said.
Though ISIS has lost more than 98 percent of the land it once claimed as part of its so-called physical caliphate, the group continues to demonstrate the ability to mass large numbers in its attempt to retain a stronghold in Syria, officials said.
The continued discovery of ISIS concentrations and facilities reinforces the coalition’s commitment to achieving the lasting defeat of ISIS, according to officials.

INSANE: Engineer Ran Train Off Tracks to Damage Coronavirus HOSPITAL SHIP
An unthinkable act of possible terrorism.
A Los Angeles engineer reportedly derailed a train, sending it in the direction of the hospital ship USNS Mercy with the hopes of damaging the vessel Tuesday.
Eduardo Moreno of San Pedo is being charged with one count of train wrecking.
Prosecutors are claiming that Moreno was intentionally trying to damage the hospital ship. They allude to the possibility of Moreno being a conspiracy theorist of some sort, evidently believing that the hospital ship was going to be used for nefarious purposes.
Moreno is said to have crashed a Pacific Harbor Line train, running it off the rails and sending it careening through a barricade to the Port of Los Angeles’ docks. The train crashed through several barriers and fences, crossing over two gravel parking lots. It ceased moving before reaching the Mercy, coming to rest just before the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
No one was injured from the derailing of the train, but a leakage of fuel from the machine required a hazmat team to respond to the incident.
Moreno allegedly told investigators that he was “suspicious” of the ship, not believing that “the ship is what they say it’s for.” The locomotive engineer reportedly went on to say that “you only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”
A Department of Justice press release on Moreno’s arrest and criminal charge describes the man as admitting to derailing the train with the intention of damaging the ship.
The Mercy docked at the Port of Los Angeles over the weekend. The vessel in present in the area to assist in containment measures for the Chinese coronavirus epidemic, in a similar fashion to the hospital ship USNS Comfort’s presence in New York City.
Derailing a train with the intention of damaging a hospital ship is an extreme criminal act, to put it lightly. The incident may have possible terrorist ramifications if it’s made clear that Moreno wanted to damage the ship for overt political purposes.
Big League Politics will continue to monitor this situation.
Video surfaced of the halted train and the damage it inflicted on the municipal docks on Tuesday.
