The United States investigates an attack which targeted Sulaimani International Airport, a spokesperson for the US Department of State said late Monday.
American military personnel included in the convoy which was targeted in the attack, Vedant Patel said.
“Our department of defense is investigating the attack on the convoy on April 7th. That convoy included US military personnel. We can confirm that there were no casualties and we of course forcefully oppose any action that threatens the safety and security of US personnel,” said Patel.
The SDF Commander in Chief, Mazloum Abdi, condemned the suspected Turkish attack, noting that the “patriotic and humanitarian” stances of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party annoy Turkey.
The Pentagon spokesperson stressed that the US forces will remain in Syria and Iraq and will continue supporting the “local partner forces to achieve the enduring defeat of ISIS.”
