U.S. forces bombed a militia aligned with Syrian president Bashar Assad in southern Syria, a Pentagon official confirmed Thursday.
The strike took place in At Tanf near Syria’s border with Jordan and Iraq, the official said. The United States has been using the area to train its partnered local forces.
The official could not immediately provide more information on the strike, including whether the strike was in defense of the partnered forces and the makeup of the militia that was struck.
