Suicide attack US-YPG convoy in Syria kills 5
A suicide car bomb attack on a military convoy in northeastern Syria Monday killed five YPG terrorists accompanying US-led coalition troops, a monitor said.
THE BOMB-LADEN CAR TARGETED AMERICAN FORCES
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said five members from the YPG terror organization were killed in the attack, which occurred on a road in Hasakeh province. "A suicide attacker driving a bomb-laden car targeted a convoy of American forces accompanied by the YPG on the Hasakeh-Shadadi road," the Observatory said. The head of the Britain-based Observatory, Rami Abdel Rahman, said the attacker's vehicle hit a YPG vehicle.
Daesh claimed responsibility for the bombing.
Last week, four US citizens, including two soldiers, were killed in a suicide attack in Manbij that killed 10 people in all.
The attacks followed US President Donald Trump’s decision last month to withdraw the United States’ 2,000 troops from Syria because, as the president put it, Daesh had been defeated.
