The Pentagon has slammed Turkey’s Anadolu Agency for releasing a report pinpointing the positions of ten US military posts in northern Syria.
Pentagon spokesman, Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway, said: “The release of sensitive military information exposes Coalition forces to unnecessary risk and has the potential to disrupt ongoing operations to defeat ISIS [Daesh].”
While we cannot independently verify the sources that contributed to this story, we would be very concerned if officials from a NATO ally would purposefully endanger our forces by releasing sensitive information
Turkey’s Anadolu published a map of ten locations it said were US military posts.
Anadolu reported that US forces use “places which are hard to be detected, like residential areas, PKK/PYD camps, easily transformed factories as operation points.”
