Four US soldiers dead, three injured in ISIS-claimed suicide bombing in Manbij

Four US soldiers were killed and three injured in a suicide bombing targeting US-led coalition forces in the northern Syrian city of Manbij on Wednesday.

Britain-based war monitor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said 16 people, civilians and US servicemen, were killed in the attack.

A US official confirmed the death of four and injury of three American soldiers in the blast.

“The president has been fully briefed and we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation in Syria,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement, referring questions to the US Department of Defense.
