The Pentagon even made several official and very interesting statements on this subject. Firstly, the US military confirmed that the US military was indeed subjected to at least one shelling from the position of the Turkish army. Rather, the Turkish shells exploded a few hundred meters from where the US military was. At the same time, American netizens called it gunfire and the delicate request of the Turks to leave.
Secondly, the Pentagon informed that it had in advance given the Turkish side the exact coordinates where the US troops were stationed. The ministry emphasized that the Turks certainly knew everything and they could not be mistaken. Comments by American users were not long in coming. In their opinion, the Turks are precisely targeted at these coordinates.
The Pentagon’s third statement said that none of the US military was injured and the US was not about to retreat from its position near the city of Kobani in Syria. Moreover, the Pentagon demanded that Ankara immediately cease actions that could lead to the adoption of "immediate defensive measures" by the United States.
At the same time, Pentagon chief Mark Esper said there were no signals about a possible cessation of Turkey’s military operation in Syria.
I am not surprised, because from the moment I took office, I repeatedly interacted with them (Turkey), and this was their constant position regarding the terrorist threat that the PKK poses for them (Kurdistan Workers Party).
- said the head of the department.
It should be noted that in a few days, the Turkish army achieved certain successes in some areas. So we will follow the development of events and inform our readers.
