US carries out ‘show of force’ to disperse Turkish-backed forces in Syria

Published: Updated:

US military aircraft carried out 'show of force' in Syria to disperse Turkish-backed forces near US troops, according to a US official.

Turkey has denied targeting a US base in northern Syria after the Pentagon said its troops had come under artillery fire.

The Pentagon said an explosion occurred “within a few hundred meters” of a US position last Friday near the Syrian town of Kobani, and warned that the US was prepared to meet aggression with “immediate defensive action.”
