The Minister of defense told about the losses during the liberation of Raqqa.
Pentagon chief James Mattis announced U.S. casualties during the liberation of the Syrian Raqqa. Mattis admits lengthy wording, but recognizes the fact that the American army has closed the Kurds.
«I think we lost a single soldier killed during the capture of Raqqa, the Kurds have lost more than 600 were killed,» — says the head of the defence Department of the USA during the hearings in the Senate.
Mattis thus illustrates the detachment of the United States from active combat operations in Syria. This is the best policy for hearings in the Senate, where the Pentagon needs to prove that the US had not started the war, and «only help the local forces.»
