An interesting new video out of Syria allegedly shows a detachment French Special Operations troops taking part in the battle for Baghouz.
The elite French soldiers can be seen wearing non standard uniforms and no body armor or other personal protective gear while they observe an ongoing battle in what appears to be a residential neighborhood.
The Baghouz pocket is being called the last stronghold of ISIS in Syria. Hundreds of Islamic State fighters have surrendered to the US and French-led SDF in recent days and thousands of civilians are attempting to leave through a humanitarian pocket. The exodus is causing the operation to slow down in order to weed out terrorist from civilians.
#Update: French troops were recently filmed today, at the front-lines in eastern #Syria in #Baghouz, as they provide assistance to their #SDF and #YPG allies on the ground against the last battle of #ISIS. pic.twitter.com/SZrt0P0vVo
