A U.S. service member died on Thursday after being wounded in an improvised explosive device blast in northern Syria, U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM, said in a statement.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter expressed condolences in a statement, calling the death a "painful reminder of the dangers our men and women in uniform face around the world to keep us safe."
US military advisers are actively operating on the ground in Syria despite Damascus’ objections. American special forces are playing an active role in supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) attempting to retake Raqqa, the stronghold of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.
