US Bombs its own munitions storage bunker at base in North Syria

The United States has bombed its own munitions storage bunker at a base in northern Syria after American troops vacated the site in the wake of a Turkish offensive in the region.

US Army Colonel Myles Caggins, a spokesman for the US-led military coalition purportedly fighting Daesh, tweeted on Wednesday that two fighter jets had targeted a cement factory, which served as a coordination center for the alliance and Kurdish militants in Syria.
He also noted that before the strike, “all coalition personnel and essential tactical equipment” had left the military compound, which is located between the Syrian city of Ayn al-Arab, also known as Kobani, and the town of Ayn Issa.
On October 16, after all #Coalition personnel and essential tactical equipment departed, two Coalition F-15Es successfully conducted a pre-planned precision airstrike at the Lafarge Cement Factory to destroy an ammunition cache and reduce the facility’s military usefulness.
