US Air Force planes bombed in their own warehouse in Syria

39
In the United States, information was confirmed that US Air Force planes destroyed the ammunition depot of the American coalition in Syria. It is reported that we are talking about a planned operation.





Colonel Miles Caggins, representing the U.S. coalition, tweeted that 16 on October 2 bombed two F-15 aircraft at the Lafarge cement factory, where the U.S. ammunition depot was located.

It is stated that striking at the warehouse took place after the personnel were withdrawn from there and equipment was taken out.
According to the colonel, the measure allowed "to reduce the likelihood of the object being used for military purposes" - after the release of US troops

Recall that the American contingent has already left several bases in northern Syria. Events unfold against the background of the Turkish troops operation "Peace Source", which aims to create a buffer zone up to 32 km deep along the entire Syrian-Turkish border.

On the eve of the first time in 5 over the years, the Syrian government army entered the Raqqah left by the Americans. This is a city that was once occupied by ISIS militants (* a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation) and which was subjected to massive bombardment from the same American coalition. After the bombardment, Racca turned into ruins.

      In principle, it would be logical to take out would be more problematic.

          Sappers would be guaranteed to destroy all ammunition.
          And so - scattered explosives mined everything around.
          And the Americans have a combat mission, and local muck.

            or maybe there half-empty tanks with fuel were bombed to increase the effect, and all that was valuable went to the left

            And the structures of the cement plant are finally brought into an unstoppable condition.
            To make a civilian object longer and more expensive to build.

          Easier. Only several hundred kilometers to land sappers, so they sent air sappers ...

          easier ... but, there were "enemies" close! "blame" from there it was necessary! I think this is the case, they did not have time, there were no regular sappers around.

          It’s not enough to undermine - you still need to destroy the cement plant. As without it.

          A cement plant is an expensive and useful thing for any country. For example, in Afghanistan, after the Russians left the cement plant, it continues to work successfully, although Soviet specialists in the face of the Afghans said that the plant would not be able to work without them. Moreover, the Afghans have mastered the production of most spare parts in local workshops. But a new plant cannot be built in Afghanistan. The defeat of a cement plant is an effective deterrent to Syria. Perhaps the explosives for its detonation were imported at the last moment precisely for detonation.

      Now Syria is obliged to present to us an account for depleted enterprises, cities, and infrastructure. .. Let the Yankees not pay anything, but the main thing in this case is to create a precedent. ..

        hi it’s immediately obvious that you are an economic person.
        Americans act like this everywhere: they create an opportunity for their firms to participate in the restoration of infrastructure, they are not ashamed of anyone, either before or after, including their "allies." For example, in Yugoslavia, all mobile communication towers were gouged, and they belonged to the French.

        the main thing in this case is to create a prident. ..
        But as far as I remember, nobody succeeded, but surely striped companies with their own proposals will tidy up. A good example of Iraq: they just rested and adopted the European standard of mobile communications, which indescribably offended Amers ..

          Do not steal. Assad has already spoken out in this regard in the sense that not a single country participating in the coalition against Syria will receive a single contract. Preference will be given to companies of those countries that provided support.

            This is exactly how it should be: "uninvited guests" on the way out.
            The question of bringing striped to responsibility should always be "in sight" and it is necessary to show persistence repeating at every corner about the responsibility of amers

      Double plus for polosatik. And they smashed the plant and burnt out evidence of their help to the bandits. Otherwise, it would be inconvenient to see weapons from the same parties that the bandits had in a polosatom warehouse.

      They just destroyed the plant, because cement is now oh how it is needed. So FIG you, not cement. As this is familiar from the history of WWII - and retreating, and advancing, everything is in the dust.

      If this is not another "mistake", which there were many in all the conflicts in which the United States participated, then it remains only to remember the good wisdom - "If something is done, then someone needs it."

      The paper will endure everything, but how much was stolen .. there was mastered the ammunition before the explosion, there is a great secret.
