From one year ago the allied coalition in opposition to the Islamic State having made an attempt to capture the border-crossing at Al-Bukamal resoundingly defeated!! Thanks to the article by Rao Komar.
Al-Bukamal also called on some maps al-Kamal.
"The Battle of al-Bukamal: Here’s What Really Happened"
"On June 28th the New Syrian Army (NSyA) along with the Forces of the Martyr Ahmad al-Abdo launched an attack on the ISIS held city of al-Bukamal on the Iraq-Syria border. Despite the support of the US led . . . coalition, anti-ISIS sleeper cells and Iraqi tribal forces, the operation failed and by the second day ISIS had pushed the NSyA back into the desert"
The allied coalition even with overwhelming combat aviation assets at their disposal more or less impotent?
IN PARTICULAR, LOOK AT THOSE IMAGES SHOWING THE AMOUNT OF WAR MUNITIONS AS CAPTURED BY THE ISLAMIC STATE COMBATANTS INTACT! AGAIN AND AGAIN THIS OCCURS!!
Yet from another Internet web site that battle for al-Bukamal as described the results much worse than reported. American and British special operations troops captured and in significant numbers so is the allegation.
NOBODY EVER SAID ANY OF THIS WAS GOING TO BE EASY.
