Americans have more serious trouble. In Jordan on a military base the Jordanian military shot and killed 3 American military instructors, who for some reason refused to responded to the order to stop the car. Apparently they were taken for suicide bombers and it is reported in the media that they even began to shoot. The result was 3 vs 200.
Like the US, the Brits are completely disregarding international law as the legitimate government of Syria in Damascus any permits for the action of the British troops on its territory is not allowed. The Americans have not long ago got burned on this when taking this legal conflict, the Russian Air Forces bombed at the Jordanian border CIA camp of militants and declared it a “fight against terrorism”, after which the state Department, despite the protests of the Pentagon, suddenly want to share information about the actions of the aviation.
Islamic State suicide bombers on Sunday attacked a military base for U.S.-backed fighters near the Syrian-Iraqi border, leaving several dead before blowing themselves up, rebel sources and the militants said on Sunday.
They said the dawn attack on the heavily defended military camp near the Syrian al Tanf border crossing with Iraq involved at least one explosive-laden vehicle that rammed the gate of the base which was set up by the fledgling, Pentagon-trained New Syria Army.
The Caliphate suddenly decided to share more information about the defeat of the troops of the “New Syrian Army”, which was prepared by the CIA and which suffered a painful defeat at Abu Kamal about a month ago.
An image shared via Twitter on 17 June shows a member claiming to be affiliated with the New Syrian Army (NSyA) or an allied group operating in Syria’s Aleppo governorate. The combatant in the picture is armed with a US-made Remington XM2010 sniper rifle, adopted by the US Army as the M2010. Previously, images from the same twitter account purported to show a delivery of arms parachuted to besieged rebel forces inside the town of Mare, in the north of Aleppo governorate. These were likely provided on an emergency basis in the hopes of preventing rebel forces holding the town from being overrun by Islamic State forces, and to support the arrival of NSyA reinforcements. These supplies included significant quantities of ammunition, including mortar projectiles.

Last Wednesday, the New Syrian Army—America’s best, maybe only, hope to challenge the self-proclaimed Islamic State in its east Syrian stronghold—launched a daring attack on the heart of Islamic State territory.
By Thursday, it had gone wrong.
Islamic State had been waiting, and the New Syrian Army only barely avoided being annihilated by circling jihadists. On Twitter and in an interview with me, the group’s commander, Khaz’al al-Sarhan, railed against his American backers and speculated that his own group may have been infiltrated by Islamic State.
