The Pentagon confirmed on late Monday that one U.S. soldier has died in a non-combat related incident in Syria.

The soldier, who was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division, died on Monday in Kobani, north Syria, of wounds sustained from a non-combat related incident, said the U.S. Defense Department in a statement.

The soldier was in Syria supporting Operation Inherent Resolve by the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State (IS), the statement added.

The U.S. military has seen multiple non-combat related deaths in the Middle East this month. A soldier from the 4th Infantry Division died in Taji, north of Iraqi capital Baghdad on April 23. Days earlier, a soldier from the 101st Airborne Division died in Iraq’s Ninawa province.

The Pentagon said that the prior two incidents were under investigation.

Washington claimed the “liberation” of all territories controlled by the IS in Syria and Iraq in late March. U.S. President Donald Trump had confirmed that a small fraction of U.S. forces would remain in Syria with troops from other countries.
