A US military unit withdrawing from northern Syria and heading toward the Iraqi border has come under fire from the territory held by Turkish-backed militants, Russia’s Ministry of Defense said, citing the American side.
The convoy was traveling along the M4 motorway – which runs parallel to the Turkish border through land captured by Turkey during its anti-Kurdish Operation Peace Spring last month – when it was attacked near the town of Tell Tamer, the ministry reported on Sunday.
Nobody was hurt in the incident, a US Central Command spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Sputnik. It said that the shell landed about one kilometer away from US forces and posed “no risk.”
