Photos show U.S. commandos primed for fight in Syria

Photographs of U.S. commandos with battle gear in Syria raised questions Thursday about their level of involvement in the fight against the Islamic State.

The photos by Agence France-Presse show a small group of U.S. troops in a Syrian town. They include shots of bearded troops riding in the back of a dusty pickup truck with a grenade launcher. Other pictures show them patroling a village identified as Fatisah with their weapons. Some of the troops wear patches that belong to Kurdish fighters who have been fighting the Islamic State, also known as ISIL.
