A contingent of U.S. Special Forces was caught up in Turkish shelling against U.S.-backed Kurdish positions in northern Syria, days after President Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart he would withdraw U.S. troops from certain positions in the area. A senior Pentagon official said shelling by the Turkish forces was so heavy that the U.S. personnel considered firing back in self-defense.



Newsweek has learned through both an Iraqi Kurdish intelligence official and the senior Pentagon official that Special Forces operating on Mashtenour hill in the majority-Kurdish city of Kobani fell under artillery fire from Turkish forces conducting their so-called "Operation Peace Spring" against Kurdish fighters backed by the U.S. but considered terrorist organizations by Turkey. No injuries have been reported.
Instead of returning fire, the Special Forces withdrew once the shelling had ceased. Newsweek previously reported Wednesday that the current rules of engagement for U.S. forces continue to be centered around self-defense and that no order has been issued by the Pentagon for a complete withdrawal from Syria.



The Pentagon has repeatedly urged Turkey to halt its operations and, though he initially signaled support for Erdogan's plans following their phone call Sunday, Trump has since threatened to sanction the Turkish economy if the country's military action did anything "off limits." While the president has repeatedly called for an end to the costly, "endless wars" launched by his predecessors in the Middle East and beyond, he also warned he may send more troops to Syria if the situation was not resolved

Well yea, obviously. Shelling our Special Forces is probably off-limits unless it’s an accident. # happens, y’know?

I wonder how many times we've had an "oops" or collateral damage... I'm sure the US has been guilty of this once or twice..

Maybe it was not a mistake but a false flag to keep the US military in Syria. Look for the consequential effect resultant from this attack.

Warpigs around the world are very upset Trump announced the pull out of Syria - big money/weapons game.

In English please?

I think you are trying to claim you know what the president wants. I think it's clear that no one, not even the president, knows what he wants. He's completely unhinged.

I would think that if you were being bombed that would be a reason for self defense.
Honest question.

Yeah, like, remember that time we thought Asad gassed people and we sent some rockets and attacked the Russians by accident 'cause the whole world believed the fake gas attack staged by the "white Hats" but when reporters got boots on the ground lo & behold - no attack whatsoever.
"That was awesome..."

Let's not fall for another one like that! Fortunately none of OUR guys were injured (unlike the Russians).
