US special forces repelled and destroyed an Islamic State assault team that attacked an American-operated base in Syria over the weekend, reports NBC News.

ISIS fighters attacked the al-Tanf military outpost in Southern Syria on Saturday, where American forces are stationed to train Syrian rebels and supervise regional patrols.

An estimated 20 to 30 ISIS soldiers, some armed with suicide vests and other bombs, followed a truck loaded with a suspected improvised explosive device as it headed towards the base.

TOPSHOT-SYRIA-CONFLICT

A spokesman for US Central Command called the ISIS attack a ‘complex and coordinated’ attempt to take the base from American and coalition forces. The ISIS fighters were apparently dressed as US-backed rebels, carrying American equipment and rifles captured in previous raids to deceive the base guards.

US forces noticed the ruse and killed the approaching ISIS fighters at the base’s entry gate, leaving no survivors. The battle lasted multiple hours and required multiple airstrikes.

No Americans were hurt in the fire fight.

“The enemy got crushed,” said one US military official.

  4. I totally agree. What are your criteria? Lately Ive been following Damon Vickers, a finacial luminary from Seattle. If you havnt read his book about one global currency, you should get your hands on a copy. I believe that people dont really know the magnitude of the situation we face today. To have a top strategist like Damon Vickers, who called the market plummet in both 2000 and 2008, publicly express the fears of many of the approach of a one world government is fantastic. At any rate, cool list and can’t wait ‘til the next article

  7. @ Mike I know what your mean. In todays economy its difficult to find a job that pays well and is consistent. I have found that if you just work hard and are consistent you can succeed. Look at the writer of this article, they are clearly a hard worker and have just been consistent over time and are now enjoying at least what would appear as somewhat of a success. I would encourage everyone to just keep hustling and moving forward.

  10. Boa tarde companheiros, provavelmente disparar um torpedo de graça está cada vez mais trabalhoso devido a restrição das operadoras de telefone. Há ainda os serviços que prometem entregar minha menssagem mas nem sempre chegam ao usuário final. Alguns como o Mundo oi e o Oi Torpedo funcionam mas e para as outras operadoras? E os que dizem que enviam e nada chega. Para onde está indo as meus torpedos? E para a Tim, Vivo? Alguma Idéia? Ou significa ter de pagar?. Desculpem, realmente está difícil achar serviços para mandar SMS barato.
