Reports say US troops in Syria were injured in encounter with Russian military convoy


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Several American troops were injured Tuesday during an altercation with a Russian military convoy in Syria, according to news reports.

The U.S. service members were riding in their vehicle when a Russian vehicle “apparently deliberately collided” with them, causing those in the U.S. vehicle to suffer “concussion-like injuries,” according to U.S. officials in a CNN report. As many as four service members were reportedly injured.

A Russian military helicopter flew low and fast over the area in a tactic that is often used by military forces to try to disperse personnel on the ground, the officials told CNN. https://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/reports-say-us-troops-in-syria-were-injured-in-encounter-with-russian-military-convoy-1.642703
