Two U.S. troops injured during ISIS attacks in Iraq, Syria

Two American troops were injured over the weekend in separate attacks by Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a defense official said, marking the first time the U.S. military has publicly disclosed a casualty among troops deployed to Syria.

The injuries occurred during the Memorial Day weekend, when President Obama acknowledged for the first time that U.S. troops there are in “combat.”
