Washington Sends Another 200 Soldiers to Syria to Fight ISIS in Raqqa

According to Al-Masdar News, the US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said at a conference in Bahrain on Middle East Security that his country would send 200 military personnel to help capture the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria.

He explained the 200 personnel will include Special Forces trainers, advisers and explosive ordnance disposal teams and will be added to 300 US Special Forces already operating in Syria illegally.

“These uniquely skilled operators will join the 300 US special operations forces already in Syria, to continue organizing, training, equipping and otherwise enabling capable, motivated, local forces to take the fight to ISIS,” Reuters cited Carter as saying.
