U.S. F-15s, Apaches Carry Out ‘Show of Force’ to Disperse Turkish-Backed Forces in Syria

The U.S. military has deployed F-15 fighter jets and Apache helicopter gunships for a ‘show of force’ operation to disperse Turkish-backed forces who came close to U.S. troops near the Syrian town of Ain Issa, on Oct. 16.

The Turkish-backed fighters had violated an agreement not to threaten US troops, according to a U.S. military official said. The American Special Operations forces were partnered with Syrian Kurdish allies during the encounter, the official added.

The U.S. reportedly lodged a formal complaint with the Turkish military after the incident through diplomatic channels.
