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.

Can't be true. Just yesterday Trump said "we have no soldiers in Syria". Trump wouldn't lie to the American public, would he?

The US forces should have rented more rooms.

Former Trump ISIS envoy Brett McGurk says Turkey's shelling near U.S. Special Forces was no mistake'

Turkish forces have fired on a declared U.S. military outpost in northern Syria. Turkey knows all of our locations down to the precise grid coordinate as confirmed by SECDEF and CJCS only two hours ago. This was not a mistake.

#6 Power move by Erdogan, attack US troops and show Trump as impotent. Trump won't defend US troops, he won't defend allies. Coward. Traitor.

The second the first explosion happened we should have had jets in the air to obliterate that base where the Turks were shooting fromj.
