ISIS militants have not hid their desire for President Obama to send ground troops so they could fight U.S. troops head on.

The jihadists should be careful what they wish for.

The terror group got their wish when An American unit consisting of 100 troops engaged the Jihadists in their first battle against the Islamic State organization, as they launched a counter offensive carried out along with Iraqi tribal forces and Iraqi army units near Ein al-Asad base, west of Anbar, in an attempt to push the jihadists back from the base, which includes about 100 US advisers stationed there.

A field commander with the Iraqi Army in Anbar province, said that “the US force equipped with light and medium weapons, supported by fighter force model” F-18 “, was able to inflict heavy casualties against ISIS, forcing them to retreat from the al-Dolab area, which lies 10 kilometers from Ain al-Assad base .

US troops have entered the fight with the Iraqi regiments , according to Colonel , Salam Nazim against ISIS elements and engaged terrorists in a firefight, which lasted less than two hours.

The battle, which took place just after early Monday morning, ended with the U.S. and Iraqi forces succeeding in removing them from al-Dolab area, causing heavy losses in their ranks.

At the same time American F18 fighter jets launched several strikes on ISIS forces embedded in the area, which took out their artillery fire.

Assad base is located 50 miles from the city of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, as it was established in a nearby meeting point between the Iraqi-Syrian and Iraqi-Jordanian border, an area of 26 square kilometers, noting that the Euphrates River and industrial lakes are surrounding them from several directions.

Sheikh Mahmud Nimrawi, a prominent tribal leader in the region, said that “US forces intervened because ISIS launched an offensive in an attempt to overtake the base, where U.S. units are stationed and they responded.

Nimrawi welcomed the US intervention, which he hopes will “not be the last.”

He added, “We have made progress in al-Dolab area, in which ISIS has withdrawn from to the villages beyond, after the battles which involved a private American force , and provided a great impetus firearm, and opened hubs around the region enabled them to storm and surprise ISIS fighters.”

The American unit withdrew from the region after the firefight, back toward the Ain al-Assad base, after the end of its mission, as Nimrawi explained , revealing that the “US promised to provide tribal fighters who are in that region exclusively with weapons.”
