Beirut/Damascus US troops carried out an airborne operation in an area controlled by Syrian government troops in north-eastern Syria, killing one person and arresting at least two others, Syrian sources said Thursday. It was the first such US military operation in areas controlled by the Syrian government. The operation took place in Molouk Saray, 17 kilometres south of Qamishli, at dawn, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has been monitoring violence in Syria since the uprising started in 2011, reported. Informed sources in al-Hasakah province said that “US forces carried out an airborne operation at dawn today (Thursday) in the village of Molouk al-Saray,... killing a person and kidnapping two people, one of whom was the commander of a group of auxiliary forces affiliated with the Syrian army.” (DPA)
