U.S. Reveals Identities Of Its Service Members Killed In Manbij

On January 18, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) revealed the identities of three out of four Americans killed in the bombing attack in the northern Syrian city of Manbij, which occurred three days ago.

“The deceased are: Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathan R. Farmer, 37, of Boynton Beach, Florida. Farmer was assigned to 3rd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Campbell, Kentucky … Navy Chief Cryptologic Technician (Interpretive) Shannon M. Kent, 35, of upstate New York. Kent was assigned to Cryptologic Warfare Activity 66, based at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland … DoD civilian Scott A. Wirtz of St. Louis, Missouri. Wirtz was assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency as an operations support specialist,” the DoD’s official statement reads.

The DoD didn’t explain why the name of the fourth killed American, who is supposedly a service member, was not revealed. However, it noted that the incident is still under investigation.

A day earlier, a team of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrived in Manbij in order to participate in the investigation, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the U.S. is apparently not taking the terrorist group’s claims as the only version of the attack. This means that a third party may have been involved in the bombing, which was the bloodiest attack on US-led coalition troops since the beginning of the war on ISIS.
