Actually theres about 300 special forces personnel there-(between Syria and Yemen) officially they pulled out before the conflict but there has been a small group of advisors there as of April
Careful... trying to blur the lines of special forces and advisors with regular troops is a double edged sword.
So they are there or they are not?
Lol, that line is "blurry" on purpose. The same distinction, I mean disinformation applies when wanting us to believe there are some mystical 'moderate rebels'.
Ya got your reglar GIs and yer 'special' ones. Ya got your 'extreme' terrs and yer 'moderate' ones.
The question asked was are people left behind following the pull-out? It matters less to me than their personal rank.
If we officially pulled-out, there shouldn't be someone relaying messages from within?
Someone held back to keep advising us of 'potential' this or that is not really pulling out is it?
It's leading us to believe a falsehood- "we officially pulled out".
I thought Iran and Syria were friends and would help each other out? They are both right there, like neighbors.
What gives? Why do we have to force our will?
Sorry. I feel strongly about it.
eports have been appearing in various pro-government media outlets since September 20 that some Russian warships, deployed in Syria’s coastal waters, hit with missiles a foreign-led military operations room near Aleppo city, killing 30 Israeli, US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers.
The military operations room was allegedly located in the western part of Aleppo province in the middle of Sam’an mountain. It was set up by foreign intelligence services in order to coordinate operations of various militant group against the Syrian government forces in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.
Most of the pro-government media outlets cites the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency as a main source of the information.

I heard the US has denied Saudi its required warplane updates , and denied them the codes for their guided missile systems , about 2 days ago . Stated reasons were protection of civilians in Yemen war .
They would also realize NATO is not involved in Syria. Using the logic that drags NATO into this would be like saying the UN is attacking Ukraine because Russia is a member of the UN.
In addition to Voltaire.net, the other original report was provided by Damascus-based Syrian journalist Said Hilal Alcharifi. According to Alcharifi, captured "NATO" officers were from a number of member states including the US, France, Germany and Turkey, as well as Israel. Here is his statement (translated from French): "Thanks to information received, Syrian authorities discovered the headquarters of high ranking western/NATO officers in the basement of an area in East Aleppo and have captured them alive. Some names have already been given to Syrian journalists, myself included. The nationalities are US, French, British, German, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi, Moroccan, Qatari etc. In light of their nationalities and their rank, I assure you that the Syrian government have a very important catch, which should enable them to direct negotiations with the countries that have tried to destroy them."
and them being in Aleppo, in a secret location, somehow directing things for the "terrorists".
