MESOP OFFICIAL US STATEMENT : REVOLUTIONARY PKK/PYD FIGHTERS UNDER UNIITED STATES FLAGS ! – APO’S VANGUARD UNDER IMPERIALISTS BANNER
22 Sept 2016 – A Defense Department spokesman has confirmed that American forces raised US flags alongside Kurdish forces in a border town in northern Syria last week.
The three flags, near and on buildings in Tal Abyad, raised speculation of disinformation by the Kurdish militia YPG that Americans were present. Others postulated that the US special forces wanted to avoid becoming collateral damage in any attack by Turkey on the YPG, whom Anakra considers part of the Turkish Kurdish insurgency PKK.
Asked on Monday about the incident, a US Central Command spokesman, Major Josh Jacques, said, “I can confirm last week that US forces operating in northern Syria used flags to denote their positions.” Colonel John Dorian, a spokesman for the campaign against the Islamic State, assured that the US would not permit any other groups ― including the YPG ― to fly the American flag. www.mesop.de
