October 11, 2019

US Special Forces have reportedly come under fire amid Turkey's ongoing shelling against Kurdish positions in northeastern Syria, Newsweek reported on Friday.

 

Citing a senior Pentagon official and an Iraqi Kurdish intelligence official, Newsweek reported that the attack on US service members unfolded as they were conducting operations on Mashtenour hill, in the Kurdish-majority city of Kobani. 

 

he outlet reports that the incident came just as US Defense Secretary Mark Esper assured media during a news conference that US forces had been relocated, and that Turkish forces know US positions "down to the grid."

 

However, Reuters, citing a US official, reported that an explosion did occur near the Kobani US outpost, but that no injuries have been reported thus far.

 

Following initial reports, the Turkish Defense Ministry has issued a statement, noting that it has taken all measures to ensure that no US base in the area is struck while Turkish forces respond to harassment fire near a US base in Syria.
