U.S. Troops in Firefight in Syria After Encounter With Pro-Regime Forces

A U.S.-led patrol came under fire in northern Syria after a confrontation with pro-Syria troops at a checkpoint and returned the fire, military officials said, in a rare encounter between American and regime forces.

The U.S.-led coalition in Syria was conducting a patrol Wednesday near the northern Syrian city of Qamishli when it encountered a checkpoint occupied by the pro-Syrian regime forces, said Col. Myles Caggins III, a military spokesman.
