2 British soldiers wounded, YPG fighter killed in ISIS missile attack: SDF

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – An ISIS missile attack on a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) base in the east Syria town of Shafa, Deir ez-Zor, has killed one YPG fighter and wounded two British soldiers embedded with them, an SDF official has confirmed.

“Due to a smart missile attack by ISIS, a fighter of the YPG was killed and another wounded, in addition to two British soldiers,” an SDF official told Rudaw.

The two British soldiers are in a stable condition, he added. 

Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) has not commented on the reports. 

British special forces are on the ground in northern Syria, although the MoD has not disclosed details. 

A British soldier was killed in Syria in March 2018 by a roadside bomb while carrying out an operation in Manbij. Sgt Matt Tonroe was killed alongside an American soldier. He was the first British soldier killed in the war against ISIS.

While Trump, that orange imp in Washington, said we have defeated ISIS!

YPG MUST STOP FIGHTING. The PKK/YPG must declare end of hostilities with both Turkey and the IS. It is the only way to save what remains of Kurdish lives. STOP killing Kurds.

Thank you Germany. And I hope this will make other coalition countries to help the Syrian Kurdish forces to treat their wounded.

This regime is done and it was all a game to keep Iran and the region backwards. Islam and christianity is bad and do not belong in Iran or Kurdistan.
