The bombing comes a month after President Trump announced a rapid withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria
BEIRUTIslamic State claimed responsibility for a bomb blast Wednesday in a Syrian city under U.S.-backed Kurdish control that killed at least three American troops, according to U.S. officials, underscoring the threat the extremist group still poses as the Trump administration prepares to withdraw troops from the country.
Local media and the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that allied fighters with the Syrian Democratic Forces and a number of civilians were also among the dead and injured in the attack in the northeastern city of Manbij.

Under Kurdish control...
Carpet bomb them into oblivion.
Send them all to Allah.....................
I would not be surprised if Turkey did it and had their ISIS ally claim responsibility...............
Forest people should not be fighting Sand People wars.
Especially when the forest gets 2,000 new invaders EVERY night.
If so, just as were pulling out... Entirely plausible that it was ISIS, but I half wonder if Turkey, or maybe the Kurds, pulled a blue on blue trying to sway us into staying.
Wouldnt surprise me either.
I’m suuuuure that as (I heard on the radio this morning) our Coast Guard goes unpaid and is soliciting for CANNED FOOD to be collected at local scuba dive shops, the peace and security of MANBIJ weighed heavily on all our minds, right..?
When Trump let Bolton put the brakes on withdrawal, we were set up for an attack that would keep us trapped there.
CCTV down the block.
Enough of Syria. Stop listening to John Bolton and other war hawks in your Administration, Mr. President. The neocons have gone back to the Democrats, who can have them and please keep them.
Those solders would be alive today if we had pulled them out when PDJT wanted them out
The term used to be “wasted”. They should have been gone 2 weeks ago, already home with their families.
Their precious lives were wasted for arrogant generals and politicians who cannot let go of their Syrian adventure.
Of course it would never be publicized, it would tear NATO apart...................
Get our troops out of the Middle East ..NOW!
No, we’ve lost guys there in 2016,17 and earlier this year.
Somebody wants the US to stay involved in syria...
Reuters reporting FOUR now......................
A sad day.
