Our foreign fighter from United States Joshua Bell – Berxwedan has a message for you
Today I was attacked and injured as result of fire taken from Turkey. I am fine and will be back into the fray shortly. I am posting this at the bequest of my Captain. Please share this. Let it go viral!
I have witnessed ISIS movements within the Turkish border. I have seen ISIS engaging my position with 12.7 and 14.5 mm machine gun fire. As well as mortars in the 40mm range. They were in a technical, within Turkey, in close proximity to a Turkish military position. To be honest, it was at night and it could have been the Turkish military shooting at us in Syria. I am not completely sure.
Regardless, spread this worldwide. Let the world know who and what Turkey stands for.
