U.S. rejects claims that jihadis expelled American troops from Syrian town | MilitaryTimes

U.S. military officials on Saturday denied reports that Syrian jihadists expelled American and Turkish troops from a border town about 30 miles west of the Euphrates River.

A video posted on social media appears to show rifle-toting militants shouting “Death to America” as a team of U.S. special operations troops driving a convoy of pick-up trucks laden with crew-serve weapons leaves the town of Al Ra’i.
