It’s pretty clear that President Trump’s military has their hands full as they are truly battling with the worse enemy. They’re cowards who need to hide behind innocent people! They say they are fighting a hoIy war for Allah, but I sincerely suspect Allah has disowned them after all this dirty fighting, killing babies, throwing people off buildings.
Pentagon released a video on Wednesday that showed ISIS forces firing at Iraqi Counterterrorism Service forces in western Mosul. While they were firing they were surrounded by civilians.
Colonel Joe Scrocca, a spokesman for the Baghdad-based coalition said: “What you see now is not the use civilians as human shields. Now it’s something much more sinister.”
He added: “ISIS is smuggling civilians so we won’t see them and trying to bait the coalition to attack to take advantage of the public outcry and the terror’ when U.S. bombs inadvertently kill the civilians.”
Air Force Col. John Thomas, spokesman for U.S. Central Command released a statement on Friday saying: “Our Iraqi partners and CJTF (Combined Joint Task Force) have seen the tactic of ISIS [intentionally] placing civilians in harm’s way. While the video cannot portray intent, it does show actions, including knowingly establishing firing positions while civilians were present.”
ISIS was using the tactic in an effort to take advantage of the “negative impact” civilian casualties have on the U.S.-led coalition’s efforts.
Three days before the release of this video, there was a report from Bellingcat, which is an investigative journalism organization. Bellingcat released a report that claimed that March 16 U.S. strike on a mosque in Mosul claimed at least 38 lives.
The battle for West Mosul has pressed Iraqi security into a fierce battle that goes street-by-street.
Army Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, a commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, said in late March: “This is the most significant urban combat to take place since World War II. It is tough and brutal.”
Thomas said when ISIS attacked from positions where they were surrounded by civilians on March 16, the coalition forces did not respond.
No surprise here! They always do this. Set up a rocket launcher in a hospital, Surround themselves with children. Human shields are common with these people. They don’t even have the courage to fight for their own countries, just run for a better life and leave the women and children to their fate.
