Explosion at US-French base in northern Syria

Raqqah, (UNA-OIC) – A military base hosting American and French troops in the northern Syrian town of Ain Issa was hit by an explosion on Sunday night, according to local sources in Raqqah on Monday, Anadolu Agency reported.

Ain Issa in northern Raqqah is under the control of the YPG/PKK terror group, the sources said.

The base reportedly hosts around 200 American and 75 French troops. It remains unclear if there have been any casualties following the blast.

The YPG is the Syrian branch of the PKK terrorist network, which has waged war against Turkey for more than 30 years. The US and the coalition have primarily ignored the links of the PYD/YPG group with the PKK, which the US and the EU also list as a terrorist group.

Turkey has repeatedly objected to US support for the terrorist PKK/PYD as a reliable ally in Syria, which has included supplying arms and equipment.
