The coalition caught someone for sure, but it is clear they are trying to blow up his importance so they can look better after all this time without any results.

The U.S.-led coalition said it had detained a senior Islamic State group leader in Syria during an early-morning operation on Thursday.

Eastman - just like Russia is an aggressor/occupying force in Ukraine? I hope you are at least consistent in your stance, otherwise you are not against aggression/occupation, you are just anti-American.

Seeing as the "US lead coalition" is composed of the US and ISIS, what the headline means is that one of the leaders of ISIS had a falling out with the rest, so the US rolled up to his home and surprised him by arresting him rather than giving him orders.

Not any more. They back opposites sides in the Syrian war. It is becoming increasingly clear that Turkey wants to carve out a sizable buffer zone in northern Syria and the Russians oppose this. Russia has been warning the Turks to get out or something will happen. Russian ally Iran is currently gearing up for a direct confrontation with Turkish forces. Kurdish forces are saying they will side with the Russians and Syrian government forces if Turkey attacks. Then there is Iran and the IRGC. Where five or six years ago the Turks and Iran had cordial relations, today due to the Syrian Civil War, Turkey and Iran are closer to all out war than most realize. Russia could get dragged into this alongside Iran. Turkey's conflict with Iran involves not just Syria but Iranian aligned Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq who are working with IRGC forces to stop Turkish attacks on them.

Sigh. No. The US led coalition includes France, UK, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Italy and Denmark. The local ally is Syrian Democratic Forces. Daesh and HTS (formerly al Nusra) are the coalitions enemies.
