Syria still has enough aircraft to take the marines on the ground who are busy engaging their ground forces.
There are two resupply convoys need to be taking out before they can make it their positions and push back the strike teams. One of the convoys is leaving Bassal Al Assad is believed to have one of the four horseman and he is trying to escape to the south to avoid US forces. We want to take him alive if possible so all efforts should be made to not destroy his vehicle.
He drives a Landrover and should not be destroyed.
