Boots on the ground!
U.S. troops are officially in Syria to help in the demolition of the Islamic State.
The strategy is to close in on the Islamic State from multiple directions by moving forward with the offensive to retake Raqqa. Syrian and Arab fighters backed by The United States are to play a major role in seizing Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State’s professed caliphate.
ISIS is in major panic mode.
According to sources:
The U.S. has deployed 500 troops, many of them highly skilled special operators, to Syria to “deter aggression and keep focus on defeating ISIS.”
