US to Consider Air Support for Afrin Kurds in N Syria – Pentagon


The US military will look into the possibility of supporting from the air the Afrin Kurds’ advances in northern Syria against Islamic State, Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters on Wednesday.

“Right now our airpower is focused on vetted Syrian opposition and some with moderate Syrian opposition,” Warren said in a briefing. “We have not yet taken strikes in support of this group of Afrin Kurds, but it is certainly something to consider.”
