A suicide car bomb attack struck a military convoy in the northeastern Syrian town of Shaddadi on Monday, and killed five members of a Kurdish-led force that was

part of a convoy with US-led coalition troops, reports say.

Footage shows what appears to be the smoldering remnants of the vehicle that was used in the attack, as well as numerous soldiers standing nearby to secure the area.

According to reports, the five dead were part of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The blast came just days after another suicide attack killed 16 people, including four Americans, in the city of Manbij.

The Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) spokesperson’s twitter account confirmed that “a combined US and Syrian partner force convoy was involved in an apparent VBIED [vehicle-borne improvised explosive device] attack today in Syria. There were no US casualties.”
