BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – According to a US coalition spokesperson, US special forces troops operating in the northern region of Syria’s Aleppo Governorate very recently came under fire.

The event occurred in the area of the large town of Manbij. Here the US troops were in vehicles when they came under what has been officially described by coalition sources as a “direct attack” by an unknown group of hostile forces.

Based on the frankness of the press release, it appears that no US special forces troops were injured or killed as a result of the gunfire that was directed towards them.

US special forces in Syria are embedded with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) whom they provide battlefield assistance to as military advisors, forward air controllers, artillery spotters and even as front-line fighters (despite endless denials from official coalition sources).

Ask Erdogan. He knows very well who executed the attack…

I have to say that Erdogan’s proxies in Syria at least do include some native Syrians. The invading and occupying US troops and their Kurdish proxies are totally alien to the Syrian motherland. So let’s say that the US troops should never have been there to invade Syria and should instead have been safely deployed to their own country some 12,000 miles away from harms way.
