13 Agosto, 2017, 20:19
Two U.S. service members were killed and five others injured in an unclear incident in northern Iraq, Operation Inherent Resolve announced early Sunday.
"Initial reports indicate the incident was not due to enemy contact", the brief statement said, adding that the incident is under investigation. Two more US servicemembers have died in support of the operation.
The slain troops were part of the so-called US-led coalition, which was formed in 2014, with a purported aim of fighting the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group in Iraq but it was later expanded to include territories in eastern and northern Syria.
"The fallen service members were fighting to defeat a truly evil enemy and to protect our homeland", the statement quoted Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, the commander of USA forces battling the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq as saying.
"There are no words to describe the respect I have for you and sorrow I have for your loss", Lt. Gen. Townsend continued.
The latest deaths bring to nine the number of Americans killed supporting Operation Inherent Resolve this year, including noncombat deaths.
