Canadian, German commandos deploy in northern Syria near ISIS capital

Special forces troops from the ground forces of Germany and Canada landed early Thursday morning in the town of Tel Abyad in northern Syria near the Turkish border as part of the US military's war against ISIS. If and when a ground assault to capture the terrorist organization's capital of Raqqa begins, the troops are expected to help ensure the flow of supplies, ammunition and troops via Turkey, while protecting Route 712 leading to the neighboring country. Tel Abyad is about 90 kilometers north of the ISIS capital in Syria.
