BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 P.M.) – A U.S. soldier and several SDF personnel were allegedly killed in an ambush in eastern Syria this evening, Lebanon’s Al-Mayadeen TV claimed.

“An American officer and several SDF soldiers were killed in an ambush targeting a patrol in Wasiy’ah in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor,” Al-Mayadeen reported.

No further details have been released.

A similar claim was also made on some pro-opposition media channels; however, they provided the same details as Al-Mayadeen.

The U.S. Department of Defense has yet to comment on these claims.

And I am sure Iran will be quickly blamed for this or some Iranian backed PMU units from Iraq. O by the way Badiya Al Sham, Al Mayadeen & Dier Ezzor are areas still under Daesh control who are good friends with US of A so I am sure they would not harm and attack good old friends who give them lifts in trucks air lift them in choppers and evacuate them in 100s in very difficult times.
