Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen channel has claimed that US troops have entered the towns of Marea and Azaz in northern Aleppo countryside.
There precense in these two towns is supposedly to help Syrian rebel forces and their jihadists allies against ISIS positions.
Extremists from Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (previously al-Nusra) called for “a fight with the Americans” and burnt several Free Syrian Army (FSA) flags, according to al-Mayadeen.
The channel then went onto claim that the US troops caused tensions between Fatah al-Sham and the FSA.
These claims cannot be independently verified by al-Masdar at this moment.
