Pentagon Irked After Turkey Publishes Map of US Military Posts in N. Syria

An image made from gun-camera video taken on July 4, 2015, and released by U.S. Central Command shows an airstrike on a main road and transit route near Raqqa, Syria. A Turkish news agency published a map Wednesday, showing 10 U.S. locations in northern Syria, prompting Pentagon concerns.

The Pentagon says it has raised its concerns with Turkey after a Turkish news agency published a map of U.S. military posts in northern Syria.
The state-run Anadolu News Agency printed the map Wednesday, showing 10 U.S. locations in a portion of Syria under Syrian-Kurdish control.

Turkey says the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit is the armed branch of the Kurdish Democratic Party, which Turkey considers to be a terrorist group.

A Pentagon spokesman said U.S. military officials cannot identify the source of the map, but “would be very concerned if officials from a NATO ally would purposefully endanger our forces by releasing sensitive information.”

The Pentagon would not confirm if the information on the map is accurate.

  1. I wanted Turkey in the EC bu tthey sem to have gone down the same nutty road as so many other Moslem groups in the area. “We are right. Kill the rest”.

    1. Sad but true. I lived in Turkey for a year in my late 20s as a SCUBA diving instructor. The people were lovely. Sadly the country has changed. I wouldn’t travel there now.
