Footage posted by by Kurdistan24 showed a convoy of U.S. Stryker armoured vehicles driving on a rural road in the village of Darbasiyah, a few hundred meters from the Turkish border. Clashes in the area were reported between Turkish and Kurdish forces Wednesday a day after the Turkish airstrike which also destroyed a Kurdish command headquarters.

Pentagon Spokesman Captain Jeff Davis also confirmed the reports during a press conference on Friday, April 28, 2017. More U.S. troops were seen Saturday, April 29, with Stryker armored vehicles in Syria in Kurdish areas. U.S. officials say the troop movement is part of its operations with the Kurdish forces in northern Syria.
 

“We continue to urge all the parties involved to focus on the common enemy which is the Islamic State (IS),” he affirmed.

Senior Kurdish official Ilham Ahmad, the Co-Chair of the Syria Democratic Council (MSD), told the Associated Press the American troops had arrived on Thursday, April 27, 2017.

Turkey sent its troops into Syria last August in a military operation triggered in large part by the Kurdish group's expansion along its borders.
