‘This whole circus would be funny if it were not so serious’
It has come to light that the U.S. give Islamic State fuel tankers prior warning of imminent air strikes, by means of leaflet drop. In a press briefing given by Col.Warran, he is quoted as saying
“This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by – we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude”
The leaflets are fairly simple, “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them.” “Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life.”
Syrian forces captured an Oil tanker which the driver of claimed to be going from Syrian Islamic State territory into Turkey. If this development is confirmed then this would give clear evidence as to where else this “black Gold” is going to.
