With just a single airstrike, the Trump administration bombed the hell out of ISIS.
150 fighters were killed.
President Trump continues to get the job done, doing more in one year than Barack Obama did in eight.
The US-led coalition fighting ISIS killed approximately 150 ISIS fighters in a Saturday airstrike, Col. Ryan Dillon, a spokesman for the coalition, told CNN Tuesday.
The target of the strike was an “ISIS headquarters and command and control center,” Dillon said, adding that the strike involved “over a week’s worth” of intelligence work involving multiple kinds of coalition intelligence as well as information from US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces fighting ISIS on the ground.
A statement from the coalition said that the location was “exclusively” occupied by ISIS fighters and was under constant surveillance, ruling out the possibility of civilian casualties.
Dillon said the strike took place in the Syrian town of As Shafah, located in the Middle Euphrates River Valley, an area where remnants of ISIS continue to operate.
A US military official said the strike was carried out by US Navy F/A-18 jets and unmanned drone aircraft. The aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is currently operating in the Gulf in support of strikes against ISIS in Syria.

“It looked like they were massing for a movement,” Dillon said noting that it was rare for ISIS fighters to gather in such a large group.
“When they do congregate … like that we want to take advantage of it,” he added.
“The strikes underscore our assertion that the fight to liberate Syria is far from over,” Maj. Gen. James Jarrard, the commander of the coalition’s Special Operations Joint Task Force in Syria, said in a statement following the strike.
Radical Islam has a serious problem, aside from its obvious flaws. That is, these people don’t care about children whatsoever.
The far left in America is very similar.
Lefties will often times go after the children of politicians as if the kid did something wrong.
In a stunning move, ISIS supporters began circulating a poster featuring a beheaded 11-year-old Barron Trump, whom they refer to as “america’s mule son.”
From PJ Media:
ISIS supporters circulated a gruesome Christmastime poster depicting the beheading of Barron Trump, showing a masked jihadist standing over an adult body in an orange jumpsuit with the 11-year-old’s head photoshopped into the terrorist’s hand.
PJM is not reproducing an image of the poster here because of the disturbing content. It’s similar to an image released last month depicting a beheaded Pope Francis.
“Soon we will cut the head of america’s mule son,” says the text on the Barron image.
A message posted last month on a pro-ISIS Telegram channel by an ISIS supporter called on fellow followers to “handle the son of the mule of America” and included a photo of the president’s son and a snapshot of a Google map showing the location of Barron’s school.
ISIS supporters have been on a holiday threat spree, taking the terror group’s PR into their own hands with a flurry of propaganda posters encouraging lone jihadists to attack, including a new one reiterating previous calls to “put terror in their hearts by running them over or stabbing them or burning structures and forests.”
Nothing is worse than harming a child, but ISIS and their supporters couldn’t care less.
In November 2017, ISIS called for the assassination of the young first son.
From Washington Free Beacon:
Pro-ISIS internet channels are calling for the assassination of President Donald Trump’s son, Barron, and have shared personal details of the child’s life on its social media networks, including the address of his school, according to a media monitoring organization.
ISIS supporters, on a well-known Telegram channel, shared the name and address of Barron Trump’s school and are calling for backers of the terrorist organization to assassinate him, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.
