U.S. President Donald Trump announced the final defeat of the Islamic State militants in Syria, reports Reuters.
"Trump has said Islamic State no longer holds territory several times over the past few weeks. But U.S. officials told Reuters that fighting still continued late into Thursday between U.S.-backed forces and Islamic State militants in the last remaining territory it holds," the report said.
As reported, Acting Defense Minister Patrick Shanahan said to President Donald Trump that the territory of Syria was freed from the control of the Islamic State militants.
Earlier it was reported about the storming of the settlement of Baguz on the border with Iraq, which was the last point, control of which was maintained by ISIS in Syria. The success of the assault should be a signal for the withdrawal of American troops from this country, as announced by Donald Trump. Now there are about 2,000 U.S. servicemen there, about 400 will remain to secure the local security forces.
“Google is helping Chins and their military, but not the U.S. Terrible! The good news is that they helped Crooked Hillary Clinton and not Trump…and how did that turn out?” Trump wrote.
However, the company has rejected this accusation and stated that they cooperate only with the U.S. government. Vivan Salama, the journalist of The Wall Street Journal, cited Google’s claim, where they rejected the cooperation with China.
“We cooperate with the U.S. government, in particular with the Ministry of Defense, concerning many fields,” the company stressed.
