Statement from Maj. Gen. John W. Brennan, Jr., Commander, Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve

CJTF OIR Public Affairs

“The Coalition stands with our SDF partners who have fought with bravery and determination in Hasakah. This is not a problem solely within this city. This is a global problem that requires many nations to come together to develop an enduring long-term solution. The makeshift prisons throughout Syria are a breeding ground for Daesh’s failed ideology. We must thoroughly investigate the circumstances that allowed this attack to happen.  While there is still much work to be done in Hasakah, we remain committed to advising, assisting, and enabling our partners in Iraq and North East Syria. Daesh remains an existential threat to the region, and it must not be allowed to regenerate.”
