Call it coincidence, or NOT, but it was the very same day in which a suicide bomber committed a horrific attack in Manchester, while American-led military fighters conducted 27 air strikes against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
Suicide bombing in U.K. in which 22 are killed and many more injured, among which there were children, is a proof that Islamic state group fighters are paying immediately and quite dearly.
According to U.K Daily Star: “Coalition military fighters hammered 37 ISIS targets with 18 strikes in Syria — obliterating oil supplies, vehicles and weapons caches.”
Another nine strikes in Iraq hit even more targets.
“Nine strikes hit 62 ISIS targets in Iraq,” the Daily Star reported, “destroying an array of deadly weapons including rocket systems, vehicle bombs, machine guns and grenade launches.”
Hopefully, the strikes will limit Islamic State Group Fighting machine’s capabilities for some period.
Were these strikes came as a direct response to the attacks taking place in Manchester? Probably. These clearly well-planned and well-coordinated attacks serve as a reminder that the fight against Islamic extremism and terror is being waged with a vengeance — finally.
President Trump didn’t remain silent and delivered his message directly from from Bethlehem during his first international trip, calling the Manchester perpetrators “evil losers.”
Trump’s message in addition: “I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name,” the president said. “I will call them from now on losers because that is what they are, they are losers.”
Trump seems to acknowledge this is a psychological battle as well as one against flesh and blood. Let’s hope the next four years of Trump’s presidency prove victorious on both fronts against these terrorist savages.
