US Coalition Bombs ISIS 25 Times To Ring In Independence Day
The Daily Caller ^ | 07/04/17 | Saagar Enjeti

The U.S. led anti-Islamic State coalition bombed the terrorist group 25 times July 3, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) said in a statement Tuesday.

The 25 strikes consisted of “85 engagements” against the terrorist group and spanned Iraq and Syria. The strikes come amid two large scale U.S. backed pushes in both countries.

The U.S. is currently in the last phase of supporting the Iraqi Security Force’s military campaign to retake the formerly ISIS held city of Mosul. ISIS controlled the city uncontested for nearly two years and has put up a brutal defense since U.S. backed operations began in October 2016. The group routinely uses civilian human shields and child suicide bombers.

ISIS is currently constrained to two separate enclaves within Mosul, OIR spokesman Army Col. Ryan Dillon told reporters Thursday. The enclaves are separated from each other by the Iraqi Security Forces and are currently under assault. The Iraqi Security Forces will “imminently” announce the city’s liberation, Dillon said.

OIR is also supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the push against ISIS’s capital of Raqqa. The SDF are a coalition of largely Kurdish forces on the ground in Syria who focus on fighting the terrorist group. The SDF breached the city of Raqqa for the first time Monday by “opening two small gaps in the Rafiqah Wall that surrounds the Old City,” OIR announced Tuesday.

“ISIS fighters were using the historic wall as a fighting position and planted mines and improvised explosive devices at several of the breaks in the wall. SDF fighters would have been channeled through these locations and were extremely vulnerable...

Bible Prophesy is being fulfilled with the destruction of ISIS. Consider the words of the author when reading “The End of ISIS is near!” regarding the book of NAHUM.

“Remember that the prophecies of Nahum are primarily about the ancient city of Nineveh. Everything written about its destruction has already happened. But in end time Bible prophecy history often repeats itself. The modern day city of Mosul is built surrounding the place where Nineveh once was. ISIS in Mosul is acting a lot like the ancient Assyrians of Nineveh. The Mosul dam is feeble. Mosul has set a trap for itself. God has ensnared them.”

This was on Red State yesterday. Send to your friends so We The People hear the truth because 99% of the MSM won’t report this.

“On Morning Joe, David Ignatius of the Washington Post says that the most successful and daring attack on Raqqa was due to President Trump delegating authority to commanders in the field, and that under President Obama, there would have been two weeks of meetings and they still wouldn’t have made up their minds.

DAVID IGNATIUS: I’m going to say something that in some ways is sympathetic to Trump. As I traveled across Syria, meeting with Syrian fighters who were trying to take down the regime of Bashar al Assad, every time the name “President Trump” was mentioned, there were cheers from the audience. One Syrian Kurdish commander used a vulgar term, in Spanish it would be cojones, to describe what President Trump has got and why they like him.

More seriously, the big attacks that have taken place around Raqqa, one in particular, a surprise landing by helicopter, I was told by the top US commanders, would not have taken place if it hadn’t been for President Trump’s decision to delegate military authorities down to the level of command. I mean, under Obama that would have taken a couple weeks of White House meetings and then they still wouldn’t have made up their mind.”

With President MAGA we are bombing more and actually hitting military targets instead of sand.

I’m surprised the Left Wing isn’t calling for Trump’s arrest for bombing ISIS (After all, ISIS enjoyed great growth and prosperity under Obama, growing from less than a couple hundred to over 50,000 in just 18 months)

I think Ace McCain’s recent absence is due to this. He is mourning the passing of ‘hish freinsh’ from life to landfill.
