U.S. strikes pro-Syrian forces after 'unprovoked attack' on partners' base

U.S. strikes pro-Syrian forces after 'unprovoked attack' on partners' baseU.S. aircraft carried out rare, retaliatory strikes in Syria’s Deir al-Zor province on Wednesday against forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad after they attacked U.S.-backed fighters’ headquarters there, U.S. officials said. No U.S. troops embedded with the local fighters at their headquarters were believed to have been wounded or killed in the attack, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State described the attack on the headquarters as “unprovoked,” but offered little information in its terse statement confirming the attack.
